Don Imus is Still Radio’s Top Cowboy

I took some time this week to watch Don Imus’ radio show on Fox Business Network. (And yes, I realize the irony in saying I’m listening to radio on the TV.) I have been a fan of Imus for a very long time and in my view, he can do little wrong. I know he’s not everyone’s cup of tea and surely over the years he has been too controversial for some and offensive to others. But, if there is anyone who typifies how a radio personality should conduct himself, it’s Don Imus. Read more and I’ll explain. (Photo Credit: © WABC-AM/New York)

Chicago’s WGN: Shake Up and Make Over

Juding from reports like that at chicagotribune.com, it’s a little bit of both. Under new managerial direction, the famed powerhouse station. “Paying tribute to a legacy station whose lineup was purged several years ago in a largely unsuccessful bid to reinvent itself, WGN is returning to its own radio roots,” writes Robert Channick for the Tribune.

WGN will debut the new lineup on September 3 which will including putting back some famous Second City personalities like Steve Cochran and Kathy & Judy. Bob Sirott and his wife will be probably be doing a midday show and Garry Meier will remain in afternoons. Then there’s current morning man, Jonathon Brandmeier who is being moved to a web destination called wgnfm.com.

That’s what I love about today’s technology. In the old days, if you had a contract and the station was done with you, you usually sat on the beach and waited it out. These days management can create a website and banish you to it.

There are more familiar personalities coming back for to fill out the schedule. Judging from this first burst of activity, fans of WGN are about to get a great station back.

Dr. Oz Leaps to Aid of Woman Struck by Taxi

Not more than a week or so ago, talk show host Stephen Colbert did a story on celebrities leaping into action to save people’s lives. Celebrities like Kate Winslet, who carried billionaire Richard Branson’s mother out of a burning house, and John Malkovich, who helped save a man who slashed his neck on scaffolding.

That story ended with Matt Damon saving Colbert’s life after a vending machine fell on top of him. It was a clever spoof that twisted into an unexpected interview.

But for Dr. Mehmet Oz, host of The Dr. Oz Show,  the hero act was no joke on Tuesday. The daytime talk show host leapt into action after a man and woman were struck by a taxi cab in New York City. The taxi jumped a curb and the driver accidentally hit the gas.

According to report, Dr. Oz heard the crash from his office and rushed down to the street to help. First responders were already on the scene treating the woman, according to Dr. Oz’s reps.

But other reports say the cab severed a British tourist’s foot at the ankle. Good Samaritans stopped the bleeding with a belt tourniquet and retrieved her foot. A food vendor stored the foot in a cooler.

As one Good Samaritan, David Justino, was applying the tourniquet, someone tapped him on the shoulder. “I was a little bit angry. I said, ‘I’m waiting for a doctor.’ He said, ‘I’m Dr. Oz,’” Justino told Los Angeles Times reporter Tina Susman.

Dr. Oz gave credit to the Samaritans, saying their fast action saved the woman’s life.
