If you missed Ted Panos this morning on WCAP you missed a lot. During the 6:30 half hour that CAP uses for people to Sound Off..Teddy did in a controlled by very clear message.
WCAP will no longer air Paying Attention with Tom Duggan on Saturdays. The why and reasons are the stations and they have received very few (1) calls asking for the shows return. Ted was annoyed that the Sun would devote so much space in the column when WCAP has refrained (Unlike this Blog) from commenting on the number of reporters/editors who have left the Sun. Teddy didn’t see the reason for the column item.
In addition Teddy pointed out that if “people” continue to act like a jilted lover on Facebook and twitter then WCAP has daily airtime they could and would devote to defending their move but would prefer not to.
If I were Tom Duggan I would shut up and stop complaining at all. I hear he will be on as a call in once a week and can use that to promote his Valley Patriot. Cut your loses, holster your temper and move on. You know you are in the wrong if Dracut After Dark supports you. You fought management and you lost. Simple now continue the paper and use WCAP once a week to promote it and you both win.
WCAP has had enough and if provoked will respond and you can’t beat them Tom. It’s over and time to move on to the next chapter. WCAP did announce that a new show will be on Saturday’s from 1-4 the Press Pass is back for all things Merrimack Valley Sports related
