In response to RockinRobin39's comment:
Firewind, I think you are right, they'll just run the show into the ground and go "syndicated".
I have nothing against Jen...just that 5 nights is too much, I can't see how anyone would hold up well.
Toward the end, every time I tuned in it seemed like Steve LeVeille was talking about barbecue sauce or his cat!
I see what you mean about the motherly callers, and how about the lonely truckers trying to give her advice, rescuers LOL They all want to meet her, I think one guy even sent her a big teddy bear.
Jordan Rich is smart, he does the 2 nights, keeps it fresh and entertaining, plus he has a very nice voice.
I feel bad for Morgan, he has NO scheduled time. And no mention of him either.
Bradley will be expected to cover for catastrophic weather and holidays I suppose.
What do you mean by a carrier...another station? "sister station WCCO in Minneapolis"?
Robin, I meant to say above that I agree with you. And here I think you're spot on - especially about the truckers. But she does charm them, always asking what they're carrying, if they're allowed to say.
And, yes, the "carrier" is another station that likely comes on "skip". Skip is when a distant station's strong signal bounces off the stratosphere and comes back down in a distant place (here). Could be from California or New Mexico or wherever. When a snippet is long enough, though no more then a couple of seconds, it's often fire & brimstone. Used to happen on CB a lot, and sometimes on first responders' frequencies. (I didn't do CB, but the tales are legion and legend about guys talking to people very far away before it faded out again.) In this case, Mark Lovallo says it happens when a station doesn't turn its signal down at night when they naturally carry farther. As I say, he's vague about what he can do about it with the FCC. I digress. Sorry. (But am emboldened by others calling in to report it on the air.)
Oh, and the WCCO thing is something different -- Jordan Rich's thing at the weekends when they intentionally tie into WBZ via a feed of some sort. But you know this. In fact, probably all of the above.....
