"WKRP in Cincinnati" Reunion?

Just got an e-mail from "WKRP in Cincinnati" creator-producer Hugh Wilson saying that the "Today" show plans a "WKRP" reunion Friday. Tim Reid, Loni Anderson, Gary Sandy, Howard Hesseman and Wilson are supposed to be on the "Today" show at 8:30 a.m. Friday C9. 5).
I'm checking with NBC publicists to see if Matt and Meredith will be back in New York from Blacksburg, Va., by then, and if the reunion is still scheduled, in the wake of the Virginia Tech massacre. A reunion would be so cool. If and when I confirm, I'll post an update here.
UPDATE: As of 2:30 today, "WKRP" reunion still on for Friday, says NBC publicist Lauren Kapp.

As for WKRP: The DVD release is Tuesday. Our big package of stories runs Sunday. I've talked to Hugh Wilson, Gary Sandy and local fans. We're also planning a poll and quiz.

FYI: Gary Sandy will be here Saturday as one of the grand marshals for the Downtown HopAround. It kicks off 6-7 p.m. Saturday at Sully's, at 7th & Race. For more details see

John, you might finally manage to win one of those Buckeye News Hawk Awards, or maybe even (gasp!) the coveted SILVER SOW AWARD!!!!!!

Can't wait for all the KRP hoopla to begin. I already have plans to make a lunch time trip Tuesday to get my copy of the dvd's.

By the way, did you ever notice, there sure do seem to be an awful lot of negros in sports? ;-)

As much as I love WKRP, I doubt if I will buy the official DVD set, without original music. I found a place that sells a DVD set, obviously not sanctioned, that I plan to buy a DVD from

Gary Sandy bought my late Grandparents farm in Harrison County, Kentucky (near Sunrise). If you would ask him what he plans to do with it. It would be appreciated.

Hey, give John a break about 'KRP. I've got the DVD headed my way for next week, and I'll tape the Today show tomorrow.

Well, it won't be quite the same. Jan Smithers remains in seclusion somewhere in Nova Scotia. Sigh. Bailey, Bailey, my Bailey!
