Radio News

I ran across this you tube video about newscast in the 60s. Even though it is about CKLW it could be any of the hundreds of top 40 stations of the day.

Where is radio news today.

My local newstalk station claims to have a 24 hour newsroom.

In reality all their news is from the local TV station.

Return with us now to the GOLDEN days of radio news:

In Sunday's Arkansas Democrat Gazette, on the front page of the Style section, there are two veteran Little Rock Radio Personalities. They are Bob Robbins and Tom Wood. Bob is the big country morning DJ, who once was a big rock-n-roll DJ at KAAY.
Tom Wood recently started his new station TOM-FM 106.7. He was at MAGIC 105 when it went on the air
until it recently departed the airwaves. There aren't many longtime air personalities left.
The only other one is Tommy Smith,
who does mornings on 103.7 The Buzz. He was also at MAGIC 105 when it started. He will make a
mention of KAAY every now and then.
