Breaking News from OMW Territory - PM Drive Talker's Wife Passes Away

UPDATE 6:40 PM: While listening to the WTAM webstream here at the TSMW HQ in suburban Cincinnati, we just heard Trivisonno's brother, Gary on air.

Triv's brother spoke briefly about their relationship, and noted that he saw Linda Trivisonno yesterday for a couple of hours, before leaving town.

We're hearing a lot of listeners to what has become "Wills and Snyder in the Afternoon" expressing their condolences to Triv, and we're certainly with the Cleveland area in those sentiments.

It's a truly sad day for those at what our friends at OMW call "Clear Channel World Domination HQ on Oak Tree" there in Cleveland...

Original item is below...

While we usually leave the Cleveland-area news to Ohio Media Watch, we can't really let this one go unnoticed.

OMW reports today that WTAM 1100/Cleveland PM drive talker Mike Trivisonno's wife, Linda, lost her battle with lung cancer this morning.

Obviously, again - this isn't in our normal coverage area. But, like 700 WLW/Cincinnati, WTAM has a blowtorch 50,000 watt signal that, at night especially, can and does propagate far into our coverage area. As such, we felt this could not go unnoticed even here.

Tri-State Media Watch extends our heartfelt condolences to Mr. Trivisonno and his family. No matter what you may think of what Triv does or says on the radio...this is a human being who is grieving...
