As noted in an earlier entry, Your OMW Primary Editorial Voice is headed out of town once again... we're on the road from now until early next week. Since we're less electronically equipped than we have been in the past, our entries will be a bit spotty until about Tuesday, but we'll try to keep in touch.
As we prepare to head out, we hear that as expected, WOIO/19-WUAB/43 sports director Chuck Galeti is indeed the next square in the WTAM Mid-Morning Talk Checkerboard. We haven't had a chance to hear if Chuck has indicated he's "just sitting in" because he's an experienced WTAM fill-in host. Galeti, of course, is well-known to 'TAM listeners...he was the regular host of the station's "Sunday Morning Sports Page" for some time. As with the other folks filling the station's now-open mid-morning slot, he is not doing sports talk this morning.
While we're on the road, we should have the capability - despite being outside even the 50,000 watt flamethrower signal of WTAM (during the day) - to check in with the mid-morning talk rotation and update The Mighty Blog of Fun(tm) from time to time. We know right now that station fill-in and former WEWS/5 weatherman Brad Sussman will be on again next Wednesday, and though we wouldn't bet on it, it wouldn't be a surprise if WSPD/1370's Bob Frantz will be back on Monday and Tuesday.
Anyway, here's hoping our absence from the market doesn't put anyone out of work, like seems to usually happen...and if it does, we're hoping it's not you...
