A Minute With Andy Furman
My story in Sunday's paper has resulted in Andy Furman's return to radio, at least for a minute.
Starting Monday morning, Furman will do a one-minute weekday commentary on Dusty Rhodes' morning show on oldies WDJO-AM (1160) at 7:55 a.m.
WDJO-AM operations manager Rodger Kay says he called Furman after seeing my story about Furman saying his radio career was over, with the demise of SupertalkFM96.5. Furman's contract was not renewed when WFTK-FM switched to 96 Rock in December. He had worked there one year, after being fired by Clear Channel after 18 years on WLW-AM. The former Latonia Race Course promoter says he’s looking for promotion, public relations, marketing or sales work.
Kay says Furman's essays will be like Tony Michaels' old "One Man's Opinion" commentaries, "one of the most popular features" on WGRR-FM in the 1990s.
