WGHQ SHAKES UP MONDAY MORNINGS
Walter Maxwell changed up the morning the Monday morning schedule this past week replacing Mike Sweeney, Glen Noonan and Rich Parete with Dr. Hanovice and County Legislator Gary Bischoff.
One, I respect Mr. Maxwell's decision but I disagree with it. I am happy that Gary Bischoff is on KCR, he's a good guy and offers a lot to the program and I think he will be a great asset. Gary is a friend and I enjoy the program that he and Art Richter do on WKNY.
I do have a small issue with the placement that Gary was given, taking off Mike Sweeney, Glenn Noonan, and Rich Parete. Mike Sweeney is a great guy and while I disagree with him on almost everything, he is someone that has invited my on his show several times and I always felt that was the premier show. Mike also has volunteered for many years and I respect that.
Being on the program and being able to hear Glenn Noonan and Rich Parete talk about County issues from both sides was beneficial and a public service. It was also humorous to watch Mike Sweeney try to referee the two.
Again, Maxwell is the boss and I respect his decision. I understand that Rich Parete is going to be filling in from time to time on other shows and maybe will even fill in on Monday's from time to time, and that's great. The same courtesy should be given to Mr. Sweeney and my good friend, the distinguished Minority Leader of the County Legislature, Glenn Noonan.
Glenn, I hope you appreciate the wording of that last sentence ...it was painful to write :)
ON A SIDE NOTE : Jonathan Sennett, will be taking over for Gary Bischoff on KNY. You can hear Radio Free Kingston every Sunday morning at 12:30pm. Congrats, Jon!
