As long as they spell my name right...

Alex J. Walling at Halifaxlive.com wrote up a huge (seven-page) review of the new radio station's performance after the first month. Generally positive, including a brief mention of the PM show:

The afternoon drive home is a pleasant one on the new News-station as Erica Munn and Scott Simpson deliver the news very well. In fact I think Munn has an exceptional read. The only better female that I've heard on reading radio news is Martha Cody who did the gig for Q104 many moons ago before she went over to MITV/Global. First impression count and I like the fact that this News station seems genuinely interested in delivering it.


Still hoping to get access to the loggers or something so I can get audio samples to the folks back home. Perhaps I'll just record an hour or two and burn it to CD for everybody.

  1. What, no Weisblatt-esque snarky jabs about being bingo-callers? Nobody call you a "hack" in the article?

    C'mon, Scott! You know you're a NOBODY until you're hazed by someone with an Internet soapbox and an axe to grind!

  2. Oh, there's a board over at http://www.boards2go.com/boards/board.cgi?&user=OnTheAir2001 which is pretty much the same schtick as the big yellow board in Toronto. No, I'm not "scott s." on there. People have taken shots at the station... so far largely fair complaints from those who've listened, and jump-to-conclusion complaints from those who haven't listened very closely.
