I've seen it all during TV live shots. Sometimes people grab you or shout obscenities while you are either on the air or preparing to be. You just have to roll with it. Some people are completely unfazed by pandemonium. Absolutely elite focus and execution here by this reporter pic.twitter.com/ZsfM9KEXP1 — Barstool Sports (@barstoolsports) September 6, 2021 Others are not. After the first guy touched me I started rolling... this isn't even all of it. So uncomfortable. Can we please respect people's space pic.twitter.com/1r0VQVoBoq — Lyndsey Gough (@LGonTV) September 5, 2021 It's usually the social media know-it-alls who create a false narrative that gains steam. In this case, Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly tried to be funny in a postgame interview with Katie George but it fell
"You deejays make all that BIG MONEY!" Well...some do, some don't. It's all about the deal that's struck with management. Deejays who are connected to revenue streams typically pull better salaries. I've done at least 7 critical negotiations with management at WLRS-FM, then WQMF-FM, and then a series of revolving deals with the various managers of WHAS Radio and television over the past 45 years. WHAS Radio news anchors recently discovered a treasure trove of station documents, including this 1943 contract for staff announcer and "specialty man" services. There were also rates for singers, musicians, actors, and sound effects specialists. Here is a 1976 proposal from WKQQ/Lexington program director Dick Hungate to his manager requesting to unplug the automation and switch to live
It's still a year away but WHAS Radio will turn 100 on July 18, 2022. WHAS was Kentucky's first licensed radio station. What a wild trip it's been! 🎧 current WHAS audio: morning show, mid-morning, afternoons 🎧 historical audio Here's what WHAS-TV dug up in its video vault to note the radio station's 95th birthday in 2017. The Courier-Journal and Louisville Times Company obtained the broadcast license in 1922 and built a studio near the newspaper facility. This fall, current WHAS Radio owner iHeart Media will move the studio operations from Bishop Lane in the Newburg area back to downtown. WHAS has enjoyed a fantastic array of broadcast talent over the past century. The station has won prestigious awards for news coverage, emergency operations
Our media business has fallen into the trap of taking sides. Many people throw heat at media outlets now for excessive WOKE coverage. As a result, lots of stories that may spotlight minority missteps are reduced in scope or ignored altogether. Media managers fear being labeled racist for prolonged reporting on stories involving crimes allegedly committed by minorities. That's a tricky measurement in today's WOKE culture. So many media outlets find themselves overplaying to the WOKE crowd to avoid blowback from Twitter bullies. The Cancel Culture is always ready to pounce on stories involving race. This week gave us two stark examples. SOHO Karen's first stories appeared 4 days ago. It's only a cell phone dispute but since there is a racial component
In 1985, my radio career was soaring. I was co-hosting the hugely successful WQMF-FM morning radio "Show With No Name." My partner Ron Clay was a shrewd, sardonic, soured-on-life hippie guy. He was brilliant and always had something clever to throw out on the air. We could finish each other's sentences with goofy riffs about society, celebrities, and politicians. We did outrageous things. We used sound effects to make it seem as if we were broadcasting from around the world. We lied a lot. We giggled at each other's provocative setups. We were juvenile delinquents trapped in grownup bodies. Rude boys throwing conventional broadcast techniques out the window. Radio stations in Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia sent employment inquiries. None of those
Radio delivers like no other medium. Listen to these voices describing the most consequential military maneuvers of World War II. Here are some segments of RADIO GOES TO WAR "The Amos and Andy program has been delayed a few moments" as we tell you how the Allies are saving the world.

Terry Minors Ver 16 -Legacy Master- 6-4-2019 TRT105 from MOXIETALK with KIRT JACOBS on Vimeo. Thanks to Kirt Jacobs for a comfortable chat about me, my life, and my career. I prefer asking questions of others but Kirt made this a pleasant experience. We taped it 7 months ago so I have very little memory of what was said but whatever it was...I said it with 100% sincerity. Thanks for watching. The fact that my last name is misspelled on the Vimeo makes me even happier. That's my life. Never get caught up in the little things, baby.
I love this email exchange from 2013. You mad, bro? Yeah, she mad. From: Patricia Houtchens [email@example.com] Sent: Sunday, March 03, 2013 11:08 AM To: MEINERS, TERRY A Subject: Listener Email from www.whas.com I guess you’re celebrating another example of the homogenization of local dialects: LINK After you finally get everyone to stop calling the city where they were born, Louavull, then you can go to Narlens and tell those folks how stupid they sound because they don’t pronounce/enunciate their city’s name like you do. I find it so hypocritical that you never cease to tell your audience that we all should celebrate our differences – homosexuals/heterosexuals, democrats/republicans, U of L/U of K, whatever, but you have no tolerance for those of us who perpetuate
