A conversation with my Brother in Law last week.
BIL: Where the hell is Randy Baumann?
Me: I have no freaking clue, and believe me, I have asked around. No one knows.
Me: That bad?
Me: How bad?
BIL: It’s painfully bad without him. Horrible. Val is there and she’s good and Jim is awesome, but Randy was the one that made everything work. Without him it’s just …
Well, good news BIL!
WDVE-FM (102.5) morning host Randy Baumann will be back on the air — on WDVE. The radio station announced today that Mr. Baumann, who had vanished suddenly from the morning show in January, and Jim Krenn have signed multiyear contracts with Clear Channel-Radio Pittsburgh.
My question, do you think they have been negotiating with Randy the entire time, or do you suppose they restarted negotiations with him after they realized how [sigh] it was without him?
My guess? The latter.
