More Philly Morning Shifts
TOWER SITE CALENDAR 2008 - ALMOST SOLD OUT!!!
*Another Philadelphia morning host is out
of a job: after just over two years in mornings at Clear Channel's
WIOQ (102.1 Philadelphia), Chris Booker was abruptly let go on
Thursday. That leaves Q102 with no wakeup show, but perhaps not
for long - the rumor making the rounds is that the next Q102
morning-drive entry will be the Elvis Duran "Morning Zoo"
from sister station WHTZ (Z100) up in New York City.
of course, has New York history, too: he did mornings on the
"Blink" incarnation of WNEW (102.7) and evenings on
WXRK/WFNY-FM (92.3). Will he be headed back to 92.3 in its current
"K-Rock" incarnation? An unsourced addition to Booker's
entry on Monday claimed he's signed a new contract there...
Over at Radio One, Colby Colb is out as PD and afternoon jock
at WPHI (100.3 Media), with night jock Pooch taking over afternoons
and DJ Touchtone moving to nights. No replacement has been named
for Colb's PD duties.
WPEB (88.1 Philadelphia), the little community station in
West Philadelphia, is back on the air under new licensee Scribe
Video Center. The station has new studios at 541B S. 52nd Street,
and it's promising to be an "independent, noncommercial
community radio station dedicated to reflecting, representing,
incorporating, empowering [and] serving the West Philadelphia
*On the other side of PENNSYLVANIA, WEAE (1250 Pittsburgh)
afternoon sports talker Mark Madden was off the air for a couple
of days after some controversial comments he made last week about
Ted Kennedy. It's not clear whether Madden's absence was directly
related to the comments; the Post-Gazette's Bob Smizik,
no fan of Madden's, has been putting some public pressure on
ESPN to respond to Madden's comments through columns such as
one on Friday.
TUESDAY UPDATE: "Pursuant
to our contractual rights," ESPN announced Tuesday that
it has fired Madden; no permanent replacement for the 3-7 PM
shift has been named yet. More next week...
Where are they now? Two former Pittsburgh radio icons are
finding work in other media. Scott Paulsen, late of WDVE and
(briefly) KDKA, is writing a regular column for the Washington
(PA) Observer-Reporter, which also offers a video podcast
of Paulsen's comments. Doug Hoerth, last heard on WPTT (1360
McKeesport), was heard over the weekend on the PGHOldies.com
webstream. And onetime WKST-FM (96.1) PD John Trout just got
hired in Indianapolis to be PD and morning man (under the name
Paul Kenny) at "Warm" WRWM (93.9 Fishers).
One Keystone State obituary this week: Peggy Lynn, whose real
name was Pauline Pierce, was one of the star voices of WEST (1400
Easton) as long ago as 1939, and listeners were tuning in to
"Listen and Win with Peggy Lynn" as late as 1970, when
she retired from the station. Pierce died May 21, aged 90.
GETCHER 2008 TOWER SITE CALENDAR
- BEFORE THEY'RE ALL GONE!
Still haven't ordered your 2008 Tower Site Calendar?
You do realize that it's now...er...2008, don't you? We're already
down to the last 35 or so calendars, and they're going
fast. The 2006 and 2007 editions of the calendar sold out, and
this one will do so as well, possibly as soon as this month.
This year's edition is a particularly
fine one, if we do say so ourselves. From the cover photo of
KAST in Astoria, Oregon to the back cover shot of the Blaw-Knox
diamond tower at WBNS in Columbus, this year's calendar features
14 all-new full-color shots of famous broadcast sites far and
wide. There's KROQ in Los Angeles, KFBK in Sacramento, WESX in
Salem, WGAN in Portland, Black Mountain in Vegas, Mount Spokane
in Spokane, and many (ok, several) more.
The calendar is just $18 with
shipping and handling included - or better yet, beat our move
to mandatory subscriptions later this year and get a free calendar
with your $60 subscription to NERW for 2008. (Remember, the proceeds
from both the calendar and the subscriptions help keep NERW right
here on the web, as we head into our fourteenth year of news
right here and you can be sure to have your very
own Tower Site Calendar 2008! (And thank you!)
The 2008 Tower
Site Calendar is dedicated to the memory of Robert Eiselen (1934-2007),
whose digital imaging skills made even a bunch of pictures of
radio towers look almost like art. His contributions were essential
to the calendar's evolution from 2003 to the current edition,
and he will be missed dearly.
*One of the most famous stations in NEW
YORK radio history is one that never existed. WVWA (900 Pound
Ridge) was a late-night lark created by staffers at WALL (1340
Middletown) and some friends back in 1974. The "Nine!"
tape they created was a pitch-perfect parody of the consultant-driven
AM radio of the era, and in the ensuing 34 years it's taken on
a life of its own, spawning a parody sequel ("Ninety-Nine")
in 1999, a WVWA tribute
website, a Tower
Site of the Week in 2004, and countless jokes from those
in the know.
But now, all these years later, WVWA is about to become a
real radio station, just a few towns north of Pound Ridge, yet.
For this, we can
thank Dennis Jackson, the independent-minded station owner whose
Foothills Public Radio applied for, and was granted, a construction
permit for 100 watts on 90.1 in North Salem, NY as part of last
year's noncommercial application window. NERW can now report,
exclusively, that Jackson has applied for the WVWA calls for
his new signal - and that the original "Nine!" braintrust
is already hard at work tweaking the old jingles and shouts for
the station that's already being dubbed..."Ninety!"
No, Bob Roberts won't be doing mornings, nor will Johnny West
be doing evenings. Instead, we're told Dennis has "refined,
molded, polished, honed, shaped and pulled out of left field
a revolutionary new formatic programming concept" that will
likely include a lot of jazz, as well as community programming.
When will the real WVWA hit the airwaves of metro eastern
Westchester (and nearby Danbury, Connecticut, where it's likely
to appear via translator)? We hear it'll take a while for chief
engineer Ira "Carts" Finkelstein to put everything
together, but word is that the auspicious date of 9/9/09 may
bring the latest chapter in the bizarre (but extremely fun) story
that is WVWA. Stay tuned...
(One more note here: the WVWA calls remained unused until
September 2004, when Clear Channel put them on half of its Atlanta-rimshot
"Viva" simulcast. The calls were abandoned down in
Georgia in December 2006, and have been available ever since.)
*New York's Educational Broadcasting Corp., the parent of
WNET (Channel 13) and WLIW (Channel 21), won't be acquiring a
Florida public broadcaster after all. EBC announced last week
that it's reached a joint agreement with Barry University, licensee
of WXEL (90.7) and WXEL-TV (Channel 42) in West Palm Beach, to
withdraw its deal to buy the stations. The two sides cited delays
in FCC approval of the transaction. It's not clear now whether
some of the other suitors for the station, including rival south
Florida PBS outlet WPBT in Miami, will again attempt to purchase
(There's a Rochester connection here, too: WXEL's general
manager is Jerry Carr, who spent much of his career in the Flower
City at WOKR and later as the founding GM of WUHF-TV.)
The New York State Broadcasters Association has named its
new class of Hall of Fame inductees: veteran Albany Broadcasting
executive John Kelly, Bills announcer Van Miller, Rush Limbaugh's
syndicator Edward F. McLaughlin, former WOR general manager Bob
Bruno and the late Roger King of King World Productions will
be inducted at the NYSBA executive conference June 24 in Bolton
Where was Rob Ryan headed when he left the PD chair at Albany
Broadcasting's WAJZ (96.3 Voorheesville) in April? Denver, as
it turns out, where he'll be working weekends and swing at KYGO
Another big New York City AM signal has adopted
HD Radio. CBS turned on the digital signal at WINS (1010 New
York) at midnight on Wednesday. (Also adding HD this week was
Clear Channel's WELI 960 in New Haven, CONNECTICUT.)
We're sorry to have to pass along three obituaries this week:
veteran New York City newsman Keeve Berman, whose career included
two years as news director at WOR-FM (98.7) and ten years with
ABC Radio News, with a later stint at WMCA (570), died May 8
in a Florida nursing home. Berman's career began in Pittsburgh,
first at WEDO (810 McKeesport) and later at KQV and WTAE. He
retired to Florida five years ago, where he was diagnosed with
lung cancer. Berman was 71.
In Buffalo, former WUWU (107.7 Wethersfield Township) owner
Ron Chmiel died May 14 at his Amherst home. Chmiel was best known
locally for the dental practice he ran for 37 years, but his
interests always extended outside dentistry as well. In addition
to his ownership of WUWU in the early eighties, he was a co-owner
of a local music production company. Chmiel was 72.
And in NEW JERSEY, we note the death
on May 19 of John Pepe, longtime sports director at the former
WERA (1590 Plainfield). Pepe was 74.
TV People on the Move in New York City: WCBS-TV (Channel 2)
anchor Jim Rosenfield is out as of this past Thursday, the victim
of budget cuts at the station. Rosenfield had been back at Channel
2 since 2005, and had most recently been anchoring at noon and
6 PM. Over at WNBC (Channel 4), Sue Simmons is apparently still
in the good graces of management after that unfortunate tease
a couple of weeks back; she's rejoining Chuck Scarborough to
anchor at 6 and 11. Lynda Baquero and David Ushery had been anchoring
at 6; Ushery will remain Simmons' co-anchor at 5 PM, while Baquero
will be reassigned. (Scarborough will continue anchoring solo
at 7 PM.)
*A veteran MASSACHUSETTS anchor is
out of a job after a political dispute at Comcast's CN8 regional
cable network. Barry Nolan wasn't shy about his feelings when
the Boston local Emmy awards chose to honor Fox News Channel's
Bill O'Reilly. In addition to giving several interviews in which
he spoke out about O'Reilly ("This is an appalling choice
for an honor," Nolan said), Nolan reportedly placed fliers
on tables at the award ceremony listing quotes from O'Reilly
and excerpts from the infamous Andrea Mackris sexual-harassment
suit against O'Reilly.
That didn't sit well with CN8, which transformed Nolan's two-week
suspension into dismissal; the "Backstage" arts show
he co-hosted with Sara Edwards will continue without Nolan.
*Clarifying our lead MAINE story from
last week, WCSH/WLBZ news director Mike Curry is retiring from
the Gannett-owned NBC affiliates in Portland and Bangor; still
no word on a replacement.
*On the NEW HAMPSHIRE/VERMONT
border, Great Eastern is swapping formats at several of its
Upper Valley signals. The "Pulse" talk format that
had been airing on WMXR (93.9 Woodstock VT) has moved to WTSL
(1400 Lebanon NH), consolidating the separate talk lineups that
had been on both signals. The new "Pulse" on WTSL will
also have an FM simulcast, as translator W232AP (94.3 White River
Junction) has been granted Special Temporary Authority to simulcast
move frees up WMXR to flip to classic hits as "MAXX 93.9,"
also carrying Red Sox and Patriots games.
In Bennington, Vermont, WBTN (1370) has a new owner on the
way. "Shires Media Partnership," a community group
formed to preserve the station's local programming, will pay
Southern Vermont College $100,000 for the station. The new nonprofit
group includes representation from the Bennington Area Chamber
of Commerce and the local cable access channel, and students
from the college will continue to have access to the station
as well, its leaders say.
And on the New Hampshire seacoast, there are new calls for
the "Kiss" simulcast on WUBB (95.3 York Center ME)
- it flips to WSKX, a scramble of the calls of parent station
WXKS-FM (107.9 Medford MA).
*Back to CONNECTICUT: Gois Communications is acquiring
the last remaining station from the defunct Freedom Communications.
Gois already paid $2.65 million for Freedom's WNEZ and WLAT in
the Hartford market; now it's adding an additional $150,000 to
buy WKND (1480 Windsor) from bankruptcy trustee Larry Patrick.
Speaking of WKND, the station's former owner has died. Richard
Weaver-Bey came to WKND as a salesman in the sixties, and later
added a portfolio of real estate to the radio station. Weaver-Bey
died May 17, at age 63.
*The big news out of CANADA this
week comes from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, where two new
FM signals are now on the air.
Newcap's CHRK (101.9
Sydney) began testing a few weeks ago, and the official launch,
as "The Giant" (with a "hits" format heavy
on 80s and 90s pop), will come Tuesday morning (May 27) at 8:00.
Also testing is CKCH (103.5 Sydney), which is running TV theme
songs for now, again with no nickname or format announced yet.
Three new religious signals are coming to the Maritimes: on
Prince Edward Island, International Harvesters for Christ Evangelistic
Association has been granted 50-watt signals on 91.3 in Charlottetown
and 91.1 in Summerside. In Nova Scotia, CJLU (93.9 Dartmouth)
has been granted a 175-watt (DA) relay on 88.3 in Wolfville,
serving the Annapolis Valley.
An Ontario religious broadcaster is extending its reach as
well: CKJJ (102.3 Belleville) has been granted a 250-watt relay
on 103.5 up north in Bancroft, joining existing relays in Brockville,
Cobourg, and soon in Kingston.
And in Hamilton, the CFL's Tiger-Cats are adding an FM signal
to their broadcasts, as CJXY (107.9 Burlington) joins sister
station CHML (900 Hamilton) this season. (Pre-season games start
the NERW Archives
(Yup, we've been doing this a long time now, and
so we're digging back into the vaults for a look at what NERW
was covering one, five and ten years ago this week, or thereabouts
- the column appeared on an erratic schedule in its earliest
years as "New England Radio Watch," and didn't go to
a regular weekly schedule until 1997. Thanks to LARadio.com
for the idea - and thanks to you, our readers, for the support
that's made all these years of NERW possible!)
May 28, 2007 -
- One of the most controversial radio formats in NEW YORK history
is now history itself. After a year and a half punctuated by
incidents including the implosion of David Lee Roth's morning
show, the return of Opie & Anthony, the cancellation of JV
& Elvis, the total lack of a permanent late-evening show
and general ratings indifference to the rest of its lineup, "Free
FM" breathed its last Thursday morning, as WFNY-FM (92.3
New York) spent the rest of the day stunting with construction
noises before relaunching at 5 PM with more or less the same
"K-Rock" format the station used in its prior incarnation
as WXRK. Those calls will be coming back from their exile in
Cleveland (where the K-Rock outlet on 92.3 will take new calls
WKRI), and Opie & Anthony will remain in morning drive, but
the rest of the Free FM crew is out. PD John Mainelli returns
to his consulting business, while midday host Nick DePaolo and
afternoon host Leslie "Radio Chick" Gold are out of
work for now, and evening hosts Ron & Fez continue their
separate show on XM Satellite Radio.
- The end of "Free FM" - complete with an on-air
"apology" from GM Tom Chiusano leading into the first
song on the reborn "K-Rock," Nirvana's "All Apologies"
- shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone who's been following
recent developments at CBS Radio, where Dan Mason is trying to
clean up some of the messes created by his predecessors in recent
years. In the case of "Free FM," it's arguable that
the initial concept was solid, as CBS tried to keep some of the
young male audience that would otherwise have abandoned 92.3
when Howard Stern moved to Sirius in 2006. But a combination
of questionable programming decisions (the disastrous Roth show,
momentum-killing scheduling choices such as Jim Cramer's money
show) and a lack of promotional support helped to doom the station,
and the newly-cautious talk radio atmosphere following the Imus
debacle pretty much sealed WFNY's fate.
- Of course, the return of K-Rock is far from a slam-dunk,
despite a massive promotional campaign that was already in high
gear just a few hours after the format change. The old K-Rock
was a success for one big reason: it had Stern in the morning.
Opie & Anthony don't bring anywhere near the audience to
92.3 that Howard did, and their suspension over on XM, of all
places, is a reminder that they, like any edgy talkers in this
era, are always skating one slip away from oblivion - and then
- On the TV side of things, WABC-TV (Channel 7) is recovering
from a fire Sunday night that damaged its studio at Columbus
Avenue and West 66th Street. The fire apparently began in a lighting
fixture in the main news studio, which is also the "Live
with Regis and Kelly" studio, and it more or less destroyed
the Eyewitness News set. WABC went to black when the fire began,
a few minutes before its 11 PM newscast, returning to the air
with a West Coast network feed at 1 AM. It did get a 5 AM newscast
on the air this morning, using a single camera in the newsroom,
which was not damaged. (And we're pleased to note that nobody
was injured in the fire, though the studio ended up with several
inches of water in it, and it could be a few months before the
melted set can be rebuilt and things can get back to normal.)
- In CONNECTICUT, the week's big story was the flooding at
the soon-to-be-former studios of Hartford's WFSB (Channel 3)
that knocked the station off the air Friday afternoon. The problem
was a water main break in the basement of the four-story Constitution
Plaza studios, which sent 100,000 gallons of water cascading
through the lowest level of the building. That's where the station's
remote trucks are parked, where its studios are located - and
where its electrical and telephone systems are located, too.
The water damage took out power and phone service to the building,
and that in turn took WFSB's programming dark. Network programming
was restored, after a while, from the station's Avon transmitter
site, but local news was another matter: WFSB moved a skeleton
crew down the street to the Connecticut Public TV studios, where
they originated short-form inserts that aired on WFSB's broadcast
signal (using, we'd assume, CPTV's microwave link to its old
transmitter site on WFSB's Avon property) but not on cable. Also
disrupted was programming on WFSB's sister station, WSHM-LP in
Springfield. Its downtown Springfield newsroom was unaffected,
but its master control is co-located with WFSB in Hartford, and
at various times over the weekend its "CBS 3 Springfield"
IDs were being seen on WFSB, and vice-versa. By Sunday night,
the damage had been repaired sufficiently to allow WFSB to get
back into its Constitution Plaza studios and back on the air
- but we're sure the staff there is just counting the days (about
six weeks' worth, we're told) until the station's shiny new facilities
in Rocky Hill are ready for occupancy.
- In northeast PENNSYLVANIA, things got a little less "EZ"
at Entercom's Wilkes-Barre/Scranton cluster last week. On Thursday,
the plug was pulled on soft AC "EZ 103," WFEZ (103.1
Avoca), and on Friday morning it was replaced with the latest
link in the "WILK News-Talk Network," joining sister
stations WILK (980 Wilkes-Barre), WBZU (910 Scranton) and WKZN
(1300 West Hazleton) in that simulcast. WFEZ will change calls
to WILK-FM - and if that sounds slightly familiar, it should.
Back in the fall of 1998, sister station WWSH (102.3 Pittston,
now WDMT) briefly changed calls to WILK-FM, while 103.1, then
licensed to Freeland, changed calls from WWFH to WILP-FM. As
best we can recall, the stations never actually joined the WILK
simulcast back then, but clearly the idea's been percolating
for a while there.
May 27, 2003 -
- The era of "dollar-a-holler" talk programming on
RHODE ISLAND's WALE (990 Greenville) came to a close at seven
o'clock Wednesday morning, when North American Broadcasting handed
over the keys to Cumbre Communications, which won WALE's bankruptcy
auction in Phoenix on Tuesday for a whopping $2.35 million. For
the price, Cumbre gets a station that's seen much better days.
Though it claims "50,000 watts" of power, its signal
never matched up to the boastful coverage maps handed to prospective
talk hosts (see the example above). While the maps claimed coverage
of Boston and beyond, WALE's daytime signal heads east into Providence
and out over the fishes - and you don't even want to ask about
the night signal, assuming anyone bothered to make the switch
on time. (Station personnel were reportedly told, should an FCC
inspector show up, to offer to get a manager - and then head
for the back door and keep walking!) Add to that the talk programming
that arrived over bad voice-grade phone lines (usually sold under
deceptive pretenses to starstruck folks with no radio experience
who were told "we want to make you a talk host"), and
it's likely that nobody much noticed, or mourned, when NABC's
programming ended on WALE last week.
- In MASSACHUSETTS, Pat Whitley is back to a full-time weekday
gig on WRKO (680 Boston), taking over the 9-noon slot that Doreen
Vigue and Darlene McCarthy have been holding down as the "Daytime
- In Randolph, VERMONT, WWWT (1320) flipped format last week,
switching from satellite oldies to a simulcast of news-talk WSYB
(1380). The move comes just a few months after sister station
WCVR (102.1) dropped country to begin simulcasting Burlington
rocker WCPV (101.3 Essex NY).
- North of Syracuse, in Fulton, WAMF (1300) is recovering from
a fire that destroyed the Schuyler Commons shopping plaza, home
to its studios, last Sunday (May 18). Don DeRosa's station was
able to resume broadcasting from its transmitter site on Lakeshore
Road, but the studios (including a new digital audio system that
had just been installed the previous day) are apparently a total
- In Rochester, Kevin LeGrett has parted ways with Infinity
Broadcasting, where he was GM of the four-station cluster that
includes WPXY, WZNE, WCMF and WRMM. He's headed to Citadel, where
he'll become a regional vice president based in Buffalo and overseeing
Buffalo, Syracuse, Ithaca and Binghamton.
- And we leave the Empire State with this mystery: Granite
Broadcasting's WKBW-TV (Channel 7) in Buffalo won't let the revived
"KB Radio" (WWKB 1520) share its call letters - but
it'll gladly let Jim Carrey plaster his new movie Bruce Almighty
with WKBW references and logos? Discuss...
- Another AM station in CANADA is entering its final weeks.
CFJR (830 Brockville) signed on the transmitter of CFJR-FM (104.9)
last week, simulcasting its AC format as "104-9 'JRFM and
830 CFJR." Testing of the new transmitter is scheduled to
last several months; the AM station should go silent at the end
of the summer, we hear.

- Say goodbye to the number-two public TV station in Buffalo.
The Western New York Public Broadcasting Council voted last week
to sell WNEQ (Channel 23) in order to pay for the digital conversion
of flagship public broadcaster WNED-TV (Channel 17). WNEQ signed
on in 1987, with the stated intention of offering viewers in
Western New York and Southern Ontario a more diverse diet of
public television. In the ensuing years, however, WNED made the
decision (in NERW's opinion, a misguided one) to leave its antiquated-but-functional
studios for a huge (and hugely expensive) brand-new broadcast
palace in downtown Buffalo. The costs of that project made it
difficult for WNED to program Channel 23, and (at least according
to published reports) contributed to the decision to sell WNEQ.
WNED will need to do some fancy footwork at the FCC to sell WNEQ
as a commercial station. Channel 23 is allocated noncommercial
to Buffalo, but Channel 17 is allocated as a commercial license,
a relic of its days as pioneering NBC O&O WBUF-TV in the
1950s. WNED hopes the FCC will agree to reallocate channel 17
as noncomm and channel 23 as commercial. We'll keep you posted...
- In other news from NEW YORK, there's a new station on the
air in Eastern Long Island. Jarad Broadcasting's WXXP (105.3
Calverton-Roanoke) went on at noon on Wednesday, as dance-CHR
"Party 105." Jeff Levine, PD of sister stations WLIR
(92.7 Garden City)-WDRE (98.5 Westhampton), handles PD duties
for WXXP as well.
- The former WNWK (105.9 Newark NJ) is now New York's latest
Spanish-language station. Heftel Broadcasting flipped the switch
to "Caliente 105.9, tu pulso Latino" this week. No
word yet on how New York's WQHT -- "Hot 97" -- feels
about another station using the Spanish translation of its name.
- Confirming what we'd suspected, WIGS (1230) in Gouverneur
is indeed dead and gone, reducing the "FSR Network"
to WGIX (95.3 Gouverneur) and WSLB (1400 Ogdensburg). Now we're
told WSLB is only being mentioned in top-hour legal IDs, with
"95.3" the sole identification at other times. Further
up route 11 in Chateauguay, WYUL (94.7) has reportedly turned
on its permanent oldies format.
- Morning show movement: Buffalo's "Alice," WLCE
(92.9), is now getting its morning show from sister ARS station
WTIC-FM (96.5) in Hartford. The "Craig and Company"
show started this week on WLCE, after a weekend of heavy promotion.
Krista Bettino moves down the Thruway from WHTT (104.1 Buffalo),
where she was Danny Neaverth's morning sidekick, to WPXY (97.9
Rochester), where she'll do the same with Scott Spezzano. WPXY
also adds Music Director duties for night guy Mike Danger.
- It's a game of PD musical chairs in MASSACHUSETTS. Rick Shockley,
program director of CBS oldies outlet WODS (103.3 Boston), has
left the building for the warmer climates of Phoenix and oldies
KOOL (94.5). Next door at Greater Media's smooth-jazz WSJZ (96.9),
Bill George has departed as well, for the even more hospitable
climes of Honolulu and a PD gig at KUCD (101.9) and KKLV (98.5).
And out at WJMN (94.5 Boston), assistant PD/music director Cat
Collins is headed for Denver and KQKS (104.3). Chris Tyler joins
WJMN for overnights from WERZ (107.1) Exeter NH.
- Up in MAINE, there's a new CHR on the air. Pilot's WCRQ (102.9
Dennysville) went up this week. Becky Nichols joins "CRQ
102-9" as PD and morning host from WQRB Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
Tom Mitchell, PD of Pilot's WNTQ (93.1 Syracuse), is consulting
WCRQ. NERW looks forward to hearing this one next month as we
drive through the Calais area.
