On the Buddy Show, No More

Anyone who tunes into Buddy Cianci's talk radio show may have heard me on the air from time to time. For years, the Phoenix appeared on Buddy's show (and for a time, Dan Yorke's) every week in exchange for advertising in the paper.

Well, the station's newish corporate owner, Cumulus, doesn't do this sort of trade relationship, as a matter of policy. So our weekly appearance - I'd have either associate publisher Steve Brown or columnist Rudy Cheeks at my side - is no more. C'est la vie.

It was always a funny sort of relationship - a conservative talk radio station and a liberal rag. But we had good fun on Buddy's show.

I may even turn up on the station, from time-to-time, for an on-air chat. Who knows? I've also made occasional appearances on public radio, on public television, and on WPRI-TV's Newsmakers. Hopefully, that'll continue. 

Anyhow, thanks to all our readers who tuned in for the weekly Buddy segments.
