He’s Still Filling In

When Clear Channel talk WSPD/1370 program director/afternoon drive host Brian Wilson took that gig recently, he was most known in talk radio for his regular fill-ins for stations across the country. It looks like that’s continuing.

Wilson is filling in this week for WBAP/Dallas-Ft. Worth mainstay Mark Davis, both on his local show, and his new ABC Radio syndicated midday show. (The show doesn’t air in Northeast Ohio as far as we know, but is available via ABC’s satellite radio “News and Talk” channel.)

While Wilson is electronically transporting his voice to the DFW Metroplex, he’ll be replaced on the air in Toledo in this week between Christmas and New Years. Among his fill-ins on WSPD are local TV newsman Kevin Milliken (WNWO NBC 24), and one of the weather folks at that same station. Tomorrow’s show will feature an interview with one of that fill-in host’s competitors, WTOL/11 (CBS) meteorologist Dave Carlson.

We’re not very familiar with the Toledo TV market, but we’re told Carlson is retiring after some 33 years in the city…making him basically their equivalent of Cleveland’s Dick Goddard, who’s been forecasting snow, rain and some occasional sun in the Cleveland market for one year longer than OMW’s primary editorial voice has even been on this earth!

Our best to Mr. Carlson as he hangs up his forecasting hat.
