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.
