Julie’s Update

The item about CBS Radio’s Opie & Anthony, which we noted below from the Plain Dealer’s Entertainment Blog, has now appeared in print in Julie Washington’s Saturday radio column.

Julie also lists local award winners in the Ohio Associated Press Broadcasters Awards – including a slew of awards for ABC affiliate WEWS/5, and for Clear Channel talk WTAM/1100 on the radio side. TV-wise, the “Best Regularly Scheduled News” first place award goes to WOIO/19, with WKYC/3 in second place. (They DO watch these newscasts, right?) Radio-wise, NPR outlet WKSU/89.7 Kent also picks up a trio of awards.

Ms. Washington also picks up on the move of former Clear Channel Cleveland regional VP Jim Meltzer, who started his new gig as VP/GM of CBS Radio’s Pittsburgh cluster this past Monday…and on the 30th anniversary of radio icon Paul Harvey’s “Rest of the Story” program. It airs locally on WTAM, talk WEOL/930 Elyria and standards WAKR/1590 Akron, among many other stations we’re sure we’re missing.

While we’re on the subject of Paul Harvey, we’re reminded that ABC News Radio’s Memorial Day tribute special should be airing this weekend…hosted by Harvey Replacement in Waiting Fred Thompson. We haven’t heard if any local stations are planning to carry the special…
