I spend a lot of time in my car commuting, some days approaching 4 hours.  To help pass the time, I, like millions of others, listen to talk radio.  I listen to the usual syndicated national shows, and XM has offered up a few more alternatives.  Hell, I even listen to NPR on occasion.  But, the shows I like best are the local shows that focus on issues that affect a region or city.  These seem to have the most interesting and thought provoking content.

Well sadly, one show has bit the dust.  Chris Core who was formally with WMAL 630 in Washington DC was fired on Feb 29th.  This move was made by the folks at Citadel Broadcasting, who have shown that they know how to buy radio stations, they just are still working at how to run them effectively.  Firing Chris Core seems to show that they have a ways to go in that department.

After 33 years on the job, entertaining thousands of fans, Chris is no longer with WMAL 630.  While I am sure he will soon be back on the air, hopefully in DC, I will take this opportunity to thank him.

Thanks Chris!
