BREAKING: You Can Grab Just One Butt-Cheek, Only for about Twenty Seconds; Better, Just Fondle It Gently
International radio industry sources are tweeting on the Deep Twitter:
Sean Bass: Permanent Muser Tickerman.
Nothing too butt-worthy there, long-predicted outcome.
T.C. Fleming: Permanent Midday Tickerman.
"Permanent," of course, being an HR term and not one that necessarily describes their likely tenures.
Someday, someone will tell me an interesting story about T.C.'s return to The Ticket. Maybe pretty soon, who knows? How, after a peculiarly graceless exit from a station that had given him generous exposure from extremely humble beginnings, and a much-ballyhooed but brief stint as a host in Pensacola, he has returned as a regular voice on The Ticket.
The man has some skills, as I've suggested in the past. So perhaps the Western Hemispherical Catman is exercising prudence in promoting someone who knows the station, its personalities, and its traditions, and who can put together a produced segment on short notice. Probably not a talent that's easy to find.
Perhaps it's that.
All right, get your hand out from under your trousers.
