Kudos to WGN America

11° - clear at 10:05pm

Watching the cable channel tonight ("The Honeymooners"), I note that the Tribune Company outlet reacted quickly saying goodbye to broadcasting legend Paul Harvey with a produced piece with photos and audio in a thirty-second piece.

With Paul's passing barely more than a day ago, this was quick action on the part of WGN America's production and traffic folks, especially on the weekend. I can only imagine it began with a telephone call from Randy Michaels
. He gets it.

How fast could your radio station react on the it the loss of a legend or a severe weather emergency? Are your people ready to make it happen now - or will is it just auto-pilot until Monday?

Added: WGN Radio/Chicago also pays tribute to Paul Harvey on its website. Here.
