Ku­dos to Betts for ‘Ra­dio hosts’ story

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - OPINIONS -


I en­joyed the ar­ti­cle “Ra­dio hosts help lis­ten­ers find es­cape” in the March 24 Sports sec­tion. Ba­si­cally, be­cause there is little to no content to put in the RTD Sports sec­tion, the paper fea­tured an ar­ti­cle dis­cussing the fact that there was little to no content for these Richmond sports ra­dio an­chors to talk about. Tough times in­deed for all of those in­volved.

The ar­ti­cle hear­kens back to sev­eral years ago when Jerry Lindquist or Melissa Ruggieri reg­u­larly cov­ered the other me­dia in town, a role I guess the news­pa­per chose not to re­fill due to cut­backs. As a brief part of Richmond’s third tier ra­dio back in the late 1960s and early 1970s, I al­ways was in­ter­ested in sto­ries on lo­cal ra­dio and TV sta­tions and per­son­al­i­ties.

In the many years since then, there have been oc­ca­sional ar­ti­cles from Bill Lohmann or John O’Con­nor that fea­tured sto­ries on the leg­ends that Richmond me­dia has pro­duced. This lat­est ar­ti­cle from Lily Betts is wel­comed and I hope that you con­tinue such cov­er­age in the fu­ture.
