When I heard a few minutes ago that NECN executive editor Iris Adler was leaving for an unidentified job at WBUR-FM, I assumed she'd be part of the remaking of WBUR's "Radio Boston," which is about to become a daily rather than a weekly program--and I began whipping up a blog post.
It turns out, though, that my friend and former colleague Dan Kennedy was several steps ahead of me.
Radio Boston, WBUR's weekly local-news show, is about to become a five-day-a-week affair. As Universal Hub's Adam Gaffin notes, a posting for an executive producer job at Radio Boston describes:
a new, local daily program (five days a week)
which will cover a full range of topics, from public affairs and
politics, to the arts and economy, from cutting edge culture to the
highs and lows of daily life that matter to the WBUR audience.
Friday night plans? Not too late to change 'em! I'll be on the weekly "Beat the Press" segment of Greater Boston tonight, discussing the latest Globe funkiness; coverage of killer swine flu and the related suspension of world-class anti-Mexican Jay Severin; and John Henry and Linda Pizzuti's...candor. Please tune in, or watch online at your leisure.
I'll be joining Emily Rooney, Joe Sciacca, Callie Crossley, and my close personal friend Dan Kennedy tonight on Greater Boston's Beat the Press. Our topic? The Globe crisis, natch. Please tune in if you can.
Tonight at 7 on WGBH Channel 2, I'll be chatting with Emily Rooney, Joe Sciacca, Kara Miller, and Callie Crossley about sundry media matters, including citizen journalism in Mumbai and Pat Purcell's new gig.
Please, tune in. Or, if you can't, take a look online.
Big Friday-night plans?
If not--or perhaps as a pre-party!--consider watching Greater Boston's Beat the Press, at 7 pm on Channel 2. Emily Rooney, Dan Kennedy, Joe Sciacca, Callie Crossley, and yours truly will be discussing sundry media topics, including Barack Obama's upcoming prime-time infomercial and fact-checkers gone wild.
