I repeat, I’m not an Ed Bark starter kit attempting to become Dallas’ radio beat reporter.

But, then again – in the essence of “the customer is always right” – here’s the latest news that filled my email and voice mail while I was outta the country.

*Greg Williams – perhaps you’ve heard of him -- no-showed as a presenter at our Dallas Observer Music Awards show at The Granada last week. When I called him out about leaving us hanging, Hammer said he mistakenly thought the show was Aug. 22 instead of July 22. At best, that’s lame. At worst, well …

*99.5 The Wolf fired Tara Ward and Justin Frazell from its morning show last week but retained lead persona Smokey Rivers. You’ll have to form your own opinions as Richie thinks country music

*93.3 The Bone also apparently made some changes, firing Cindy Skull (I’m thinking that ain’t her real name) and Robert Miguel (That’s gotta be his real name). I admit, there's absolutley zero sportsy about that transaction.

With Pugs & Kelly gone from Live 105.3, Russ Martin in limbo and all sorts of stations in various personnel upheaval, if I’m a wanna-be radio voice in this city I’m spending my Monday dropping off resumes and tapes around the city. But, of course, that’s just me.

A sportswriter. Remember? -- Richie Whitt

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. 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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
