A couple of local items we missed from the radio side...

In our hiatus this week, we missed a couple of happenings in the radio biz...

Roberts Returns to the Queen City: All Access reports that a Tri-State native has returned to town, and is looking for an opportunity. Quoting All Access:

As previously mentioned on ALL ACCESS (NET NEWS 10/31), former TEJAS BROADCASTING Hot AC KLTG (THE BEACH 96.5)/CORPUS CHRISTI, TX PD/midday talent CHRIS ROBERTS has returned to his home town of CINCINNATI for family reasons.

ROBERTS is now settled back home in CINCINNATI and ready for his next radio programming or on-air opportunity. Reach out to CHRIS at (361) 949-0369, or

Welcome back Chris, and hopefully you can find an opportunity in the market, even with the mess the economy is in right now...

WSWD-FM Concert Raises $4,000 for Toys For Tots: 97.3FM The Sound (WSWD-FM) raised nearly $4,000 Saturday, December 6th for Toys For Tots during their concert featuring acts like The Ting-Tings, Shiny Toy Guns and Safetysuit along with a few local bands.

Quoting again from AllAccess:

Listeners donated over 130 toys at select MEIJER locations for "THE SOUND’s SHINY TOYS FOR SHINY TOY GUNS" campaign where listeners received tickets to the concert in exchange for new toys for TOYS FOR TOTS. THE SOUND also held a "NOT SO SILENT AUCTION" during the concert, featuring autographed memorabilia from artists.

WSWD PD JAY KRUZ said, "97.3 THE SOUND is built around the concept of giving. "We’re proud to give to the community as part of our ongoing support of TOYS FOR TOTS and I believe we gave the people of CINCINNATI a great concert."

We here at TSMW congratulate 97.3 on their successful concert and toy drive.
