In this week’s issue… K-Love grows in Buffalo, Hudson Valley – Less local in Erie mornings – Syracuse veteran retiring – Remembering Jerry Fiore
By SCOTT FYBUSH
*If you’re a broadcasting junkie of a certain age, you no doubt share with us the sweet memory of that moment every year around this time when the mail carrier or supermarket rack would yield up the fat Fall Preview TV Guide, complete with listings of all the exciting new shows heading to your 25″ Zenith from all three TV networks.
As we move past Labor Day, consider this (slightly delayed) issue of NERW to be our “Fall Preview” – there’s news from this past week, yes, but before we get there, a few notes about what’s coming from Fybush Media and our partners in the exciting new fall season.
There’s NERW every Monday, of course, with big thanks to all of you who’ve renewed your subscriptions and even bigger thanks to those of you who’ve taken the time to tell friends and colleagues why you depend on this weekly summary of everything happening on our region’s broadcast scene.
There’s the Tower Site Calendar, about to hit the presses for its 19th (!) year, and newly available for pre-order at the Fybush.com Store. What will be on the actual cover this year? Stay tuned – we’ll make that reveal in a few weeks.
Tower Site of the Week has been taking a slightly longer than expected summer hiatus, due to some extenuating circumstances – but it will be back at last this Friday with lots of good stuff to show you every week for the rest of the year.
The Top of the Tower Podcast made some summer appearances featuring interesting interviews with some great broadcasters we visited out West, and it will return in a few weeks for regular autumn appearances on Wednesdays, too.
The fall convention season gets under way in just a few weeks, too. We’ll be in Dallas later this month for the Radio Show, followed by the NAB New York/AES shows in October. We hope to see many of you there, and we’ll be bringing you the voices and stories from those shows here and on the podcast.
And over at the Fybush Media arm of the operation, watch our StationSale.com site in the next few weeks – the sale season is heating up, too, and we’ll be presenting some new listings from around the region. (We’re always available, too, for consulting on signal expansion, translator interference, and much more!)
Oh, and don’t miss “Battle of the Network Stars,” coming to ABC… (What? It’s not 1981 anymore? Fine – on with this week’s 2019 news…)
We have a great lineup of podcasts here on our site. While you’re catching up with your summer reading, don’t forget about your summer listening. Now is the time to make sure you’re up to date with Top of the Tower.
Our latest one features Donna Halper discussing her life in radio, from her time at WMMS when she helped Rush get US airplay, to what she learned from Arnie “Woo Woo” Ginsburg.
Don’t forget you can still visit our store to check out our other great products. We’ll be taking preorders for the 2021 calendar soon. Stay tuned!
