    I believe it went down twice actually...

    No injuries either time, thankfully...

    I guess someone clued you in on the flight capabilities of a farm-raised turkey?

    Last year, I was listening to Opie & Anthony on XM and they played audio from a live broadcast when a traffic helicopter in New York went down during the middle of a report.

    It was the creepiest thing I'd ever heard in my life.

    With the advent of systems like ARTEMIS, traffic helicopters really have become something of a relic.

    I heard that as well. Creepy thing is, that it was the second time that reporter had been in a crash. She didn't survive the second one. What are the odds it would happen twice?

    Starting Wednesday (1/23), I will be Chuck Ingram's right hand man. He will handle WLW and WEBN, I will handle WKRC and the generic traffic update (recorded, if you couldn't tell) that air on Homer, 94.1, Kiss 107.1. and the Fox, and I'll be doing traffic for WNKR in Kentucky (a country station, I think)....a genre variety for everyone Afternoons 3-6:30 monday - friday.

    When Chuck needs off, or has to cover mornings, I'll slide over and take care of WLW and WEBN...

    Hopefully it's a step in the right direction...and the start of something bigger.

    Matt,
    Is it just me or does he always pronounce Fort Washington Way as Fart Washington Way?

    Very cool and congratulations, Matt.

    Coming from someone who got a nice little shot at working at WLW and WCKY solely because of Chuck Ingram myself, I can honestly say congrats and you're in good hands, as I'm sure you know.

    I'm really kinda jealous. Makes me want to sell my insurance agency and go work overnights
    somewhere.

    Congratulations Matt. It defenitly looks like you're movin on up.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    We may have an opening....the ATN producer had a bit of a mishap last night...

    That mishap cost him his job...
