THIS JUST IN: Furman to WQRT

We just got up after a rough night on the personal front... and read Tom Taylor's Taylor on Radio-Info newsletter of this morning as is our custom.

And that's where we find breaking news this afternoon...Andy Furman will return to Cincinnati radio.

Taylor reports that WQRT-AM 1160/Florence owner John Yinger tells him it's a "done deal".

We caution: We're also reading John Kiesewetter's post this morning that says it's not quite a done deal. Kiese has been reporting, and Taylor confirms, that Furman will do 5-7 PM weekdays on the otherwise syndicated talker.

1160 suffers from needing to turn the power down at night, however, thanks to KSL-AM/ Salt Lake City, UT. (Not to mention being first-adjacent to two stations on 1170 AM (including Wheeling, WV's WWVA.) And in the winter, that could mean half or a little less than half of Furman's show would actually be heard over the air in much of the metro. At night... you can just about forget hearing the signal if you're north of the Interstate 275 loop... or anywhere west of Aurora, Indiana... unless you can get the perfect conditions to propagate the signal...

Sorry Joe...I thought I'd put that in there.

All signs point to Furman starting the Monday after the Super Bowl.
