Next Tuesday, longtime WCNY personality Don Dolloff will retire from a 34-year career at the Syracuse public radio station. In his honor, we've decided to borrow a classic photo from Don's earlier days at the station.
CNYRadio.com and CNYTVNews.com share a new Picture of the Week every Monday at 7:00am. We're always looking for reader submissions -- radio or TV, current events or blasts from the past. Send those shots to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This POTW has a somewhat timely purpose. WRUN's (relatively) new owner Northeast Public Radio, is about to kick off its fall fund drive. Starting next week, the network of 19 stations throughout New York, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts will begin efforts to raise $800,000 in donations from listeners.
What a slooooow week this was! We only had one new story since last week's POTW. It was such a slow week, we had to go back in time for the latest POTW. We found this one at the Utica AM Radio Website, and the owners could use some help identifying one of these guys.
Because this Friday happens to be 08/08/08, we decided the Picture of the Week would come from a station that has an "8" in the frequency. You can't get any closer to an all-8 frequency than 88.9 WNYO at SUNY Oswego... and making it even better, 2008 has been a big year for WNYO.
