Feherty Out

Unknown-1

Long time golf commentator and on-course reporter David Feherty is apparently out at CBS.

The word is he couldn’t come to an agreement with the network on terms of a new contract.

Feherty is known for his wit and irreverence. He is still affiliated with the Golf Channel where he hosts his own talk show. He was with CBS for 19 golf seasons and helped call the action at the GHO.

An interesting use of multi-media formats by the Day of the New London to tell the story of safety issues on I-95.

The final product clearly took a lot of effort on the part of a large team and covers all the angles using data and personal stories.

New Britain _________

Unknown

Ladies and gentlemen, New Britain has a new minor league baseball team.

Although we don’t have all the details yet it looks as if New Britain went no more than a day without its own team. The Rock Cats played their last home game on Sunday. Tuesday – the Atlantic League announced plans to bring a new team to the city.

Team name: TBA.

This has the potential to create an even stronger minor league fan base in the capital region. Great news because the New Britain stadium is too nice to go empty.

Hartford Radio History

Unknown

Starting a week from today, WWUH radio in Hartford will begin a ten part series on the history of radio in Connecticut.

The first several episodes deal primarily with Hartford and a long list of familiar names, but toward the end of the five week series the station will delve into smaller markets in the state including eastern Connecticut and the New Haven area.

Since 2005 WWUH has been gathering interviews and old tape to pull the series together.

The whole project is called “Connecticut Radio Memories.

Came across this on the Internet Tuesday and offer it today just for fun.

Enjoy.

Vivian Brown

Unknown-1

You don’t have to be a regular viewer of the Weather Channel to know that Vivian Brown has been a fixture with the network since it began almost 30 years ago.

So it was a surprise Tuesday afternoon when she announced she was leaving, became tearful on camera, and offered no explanation. The Weather Channel is also keeping quiet about the change. Chances are if you have passed a television tuned to the Weather Channel in the last 30 years you’ve seen and would recognize Brown.

In her brief remarks, that appeared to be cut off by “weather on the 8’s,” she said she had no idea where she was going next, which would seem to suggest she had not planned on going in the first place.

Ballpark Progress

There’s progress to report on the Hartford ballpark less than a week after the New Britain Rock Cats played their last game in The Hardware City.

Tuesday workers raised the first steel beam for the frame of the stadium that will host the brand new Hartford Yard Goats next spring.

You could say construction workers are rounding first and headed to second.
