Several years ago – in the days before this site was officially a “blog” – I just happened to be at a remote broadcast – not with the station, but with the organization for whom the remote was being held. My name was mentioned and suddently I was approached by someone who knew of me from this site. The gentleman was nice enough, but he seemed to be very concerned.
“You’re Eric O’Brien,” he asked.
“Yes, I am.”
“I have a question for you. How come you don’t update PBRTV every day like DCRTV Dave does his site?”
I answered honestly. I told the reader that the Pittsburgh market was not nearly as big as the Baltimore/DC region and that I am nowhere near the writer that Dave is.
Well, dear reader, I could add several more reasons to the list now, but I won’t get into that here. Let’s just say that life has been full of activity of late. But my interest in this site will never wane. Albeit I may miss some items, or may have weeks where nothing gets posted, but I am in this!
15 years and still going…
So, I realized two days after the fact that I missed PBRTV’s 15th anniversary. October 21st came and went – with me as busy as usual – and my intention of making a big (okay, little) woopdedoo went by the wayside. Consider this a make-up! I never dreamed that I would ever formulate my own website, let alone one that would last so long with a somewhat loyal following. Without a doubt, I’ve had and continue to have fun doing this! Thank you all for your support.
Things I’ve missed…
- The Post-Gazette has continued its series on radio. They touched on KDKA’s Partyline with Ed and Wendy King, as well as an article on Voice Tracking on October 20. Then on October 27, they covered the new WZUM and WBGN and WMNY.
- Joanna Campbell is the new voice of WLTJ’s (92.9) middays (10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.) while Debbie Wilde takes the evening shift (6:00 – 11:00 p.m.).
Stay tuned… more to come… soon!
