Random Items Scooped Up

Some random items, as “OMW on Shuffle” continues:

WOIO SUIT: Like this one, for example, which we haven’t had time to pursue in all the flurry of breaking news items the past couple of days.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that David Eden, former managing editor of WOIO/19-WUAB/43’s “19 Action News”, is suing the Raycom Media outlet for wrongful termination.

To distill Eden’s suit into a nutshell: His lawyer claims it all went downhill for him at Reserve Square after he complained about “anti-Semitic remarks”, workplace gambling and age discrimination at the CBS/UPN combo.

For those wondering where Eden’s been since WOIO let him go in June, the PD’s James F. McCarty says the former Cleveland Free Times editor has been working on a political campaign in Dayton, and is now out looking for work again…

STREAMING ROVER: Those looking for a “Rover’s Morning Glory” fix away from Cleveland, or one of Shane “Rover” French’s other current syndicated markets, can get it right from the source.

Rover’s home kennel, CBS Radio alt-rock/talk WXRK/92.3, has launched live streaming from the “92-3 K-Rock” website.

As far as we know, all of the CBS Radio “Free FM” talkers – including the two which used to carry Rover in Chicago and Detroit – have streamed since day one. But this is the first time Rover’s original home station has launched a live webcast…

AND WHILE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT WXRK: This seems as good a place as any. AllAccess reports that former “K-Rock” programmer Kim Monroe has made another job move.

This one, though, is still outside of radio. Kim’s moving from the Sony/BMG Red Music label to a job working for Steve Jobs.

Well, not directly, but she’s been named the Producer for iTunes Originals for Apple Computer’s music service.

Our congratulations to her…we honestly wish her well!
