Rob Milford Resigns
KDKA (1020) reporter Rob Milford resigned. Milford was arrested after sheriff's deputies said he tried to bring a loaded .38-caliber revolver into the Allegheny County courthouse. He was covering the trial of the alleged East End rapist and told police he forgot the handgun was in his briefcase. Oooops!
Bossman Moves On
The legendary "Bossman" Porky Chedwick is headed to Florida. Porky Chedwick, 90, is moving to Tarpon Springs, near Tampa. "I'm going to live my life in shorts and sandals now," Chedwick said. I think 90 is a good age to retire.
Farewell Mr. Carlin
For those of you who care, New York's WBAI-FM wasn't cited for playing "Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television" over the air. In fact, on Oct. 30. 1973, the station played Carlin's monologue "Filthy Words". A listener complained to the FCC, and the resulting court case, FCC v. Pacifica Foundation, established the current legal standards for broadcast obscenity.
The lasting gift from Mr. Carlin.
Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. - George Carlin
