radio news

Most would not recognize him, but many would know his voice. Bob Kopler retires this morning as the morning news anchor at KDKA radio after 19 years there and over 40 years in the local media market.

Which brings up a question. It's been more than a few months since John Mcintire's unceremonious departure from the radioverse. You would think that the radio market would find some slot for a host with a known market. I presume one issue is that talk radio is not much of the spectrum these days and locally-produced talk content even rarer. There are just few outlets for pure talk anymore. Maybe something on WPTT in the new year?

How did that song from the Buggles go?
