Bonneville - Washington Post Deal Announced

"Did anyone at Bonneville actually consider what newspaper reporters, columnists and editors sound like on the radio? Most are awful, only a few may be airworthy.

And why should it be any other way? They spend their time writing, not speaking into a microphone.

In addition, because they'll still have deadlines to make, columns to write and sources to contact, one would imagine radio would be a distant second in terms of newsroom priorities. That leads to unfocused, rushed interviews."

That's alright. They don't spend THAT much time on writing those newpaper articles any more, now do they?
