For years, Hartford Courant Columnist Colin McEnroe has lent his quirky, quick-witted, and liberal voice - to the conservative "sameness" of commerical talk radio. His show was a mix of humor, politics, unusual phone callers - and hilarious rants on obscure topics.
Then, one month ago - after 16 years on air - he was let go by WTIC, the CBS-owned news talk station that has dominated AM radio in Connecticut for years. The decision was typical of big corporate radio - in a tough economic climate. The move was a shock to his fans - who flooded the station with emails, formed "Bring back Colin" groups on Facebook, and blogged about what they'd be missing in the afternoon.
Today, Where We Live, we welcome Colin McEnroe in to talk about the state of talk radio - the life of a newspaper columnist - the impact of blogs - and his Classical Connections series with the Hartford Symphony.
