Andrea Grimes, uncharacteristically shy this a.m., doesn't feel terribly comfy touting her radio appearance today, so I will: The Girl on Top will join the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Cary Darling and D's Zac Crain at noon today on KERA-FM (90.1)'s Think. Their subject: " 2007 - The Pop Culture Year in Review." As in, " What were your favorite (and not so favorite) pop-culture moments of 2007 and what excites you about 2008?" What excites Andrea about 2008? Moving to Austin, most likely. Me, I'm waiting till Hour Two to tune in: "How Government Planning Harms Your Quality of Life, Your Pocketbook, and Your Future." Damn right. --Robert Wilonsky

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
