I’m what they call an anchor-reporter at WWJ. If it were up to me my business card would say, “Paid Informant.” I read radio news. Sometimes I just introduce someone else who is reporting the news.
That’s a far cry from a “Journalist,” but I’ve never been on the ground in a war, and the last time I uncovered corruption at City Hall, then-Detroit Mayor Coleman Young asked me to leave his city and never come back. Not much came of it, really; He got re-elected and I won an award for investigative reporting.
I do have 25 years in radio news, now, and I think I know a good story when I hear one. Each weekend, I put my head together with Producer Tim Kiska — who is no rookie at this, either — and we come up with a pretty good rundown of the “hard news” as well as the just plain interesting stories. That way listeners are sure to stay informed, without feeling beat over the head.
So tune in Sundays, Noon to 6 p.m., and give a listen. Then drop a line and let me know what you think, what we can do better, and what we shouldn’t do anymore. Don’t worry about offending; in this biz you either have thick skin or you get out. I haven’t left yet.
