Picking Up On Two Earlier Items

A couple of OMW footnotes:

* We hear it may have indeed been financial issues that torpedoed any possible television coverage of the Cleveland Indians’ big 11-0 win over the Kansas City Royals on Sunday. Part of it – a quick addition of the game to their schedule wouldn’t allow Fox Sports Net Ohio to sell advertising for it, so they’d make no money off of doing it. (We’re told that FSN Ohio *would* have been able to do it, because ESPN’s Sunday rights generally don’t extend to day games in the regular season.) But, as OMW also suspected, running baseball up against the NFL – even when the Browns are not directly playing against the baseball game – is often a brutal prospect in the ratings. We’d still like to have had the option, though…and we’re told that some FSN Ohio talent would like to have had the option as well.

* As expected, someone’s helping us with Brooke Taylor’s Northeast Ohio radio resume. Brooke’s the new morning co-host at Salem CCM WFHM/95.5 “The Fish” in Cleveland, in an item we reported below. We’re told that she worked alongside WKDD afternoon driver/PD/Clear Channel Akron/Canton operations director/guy who does everything but clean the restrooms Keith Kennedy between 1999 and 2001, and that before that, she was at then-country WNPQ/95.9 New Philadelphia/Canton in the mid-90’s. Thanks for the update, and the help, folks!
