I said this in the past and got shot down. Finally there is someone here on my side! Folks here have to get out of fantasy land. Bill Evans is now involved in radio. He and his wife bought a radio station recently. The location of the radio station is in far eastern LI. No doubt they live out there too. Bill is part of the radio talent. He can wear rags to work and can shave whenever he feels like it. Maybe he said he wants to get back into TV someday, but for goodness sakes, he just left ABC7 at few months ago. Let him enjoy radio for awhile.
The radio and TV businesses go thru cycles of change. Look at Channels 2/4/7. All 3 AM M-F weather reporters have or are about to be turned over. If you don't like Elise, watch another channel! If you don't like Sam, watch another channel! If you aren't going to like Cimino's replacement, watch another channel! Do you really watch a given station in the morning solely based on who does the weather? I hope not! I look at the anchors. John Elliott is not a young guy. Does anybody know when his contract expires? No! Do we know if he asked WCBS TV to cut down on his schedule? We don't know either.
Yes, I know John Elliott is on the radio with Scott Shannon, working 7 days per week. Why? You'll have to ask him. That is not for me to speculate about. We don't know how long John Elliott will be on the radio, or on Ch. 2 S/S. If so many people here want to know why, why hasn't anybody written him a fan mail-snail mail letter yet for the answer?
For goodness sakes, can we please allow Bill Evans and John Elliott to live their professional lives the way they want to without this constant second guessing?
