You'd think there'd by a telco/talkback b/w the studio and MetroNews.  And
if there is one, um, it needs to be utilized.  Plus, if you're a broadcast
producer, and you're too busy chiming in on the program as a minimum wage
side-kick with aspirations, it's tough to remember the fundamentals.

Didn't the PC that identifies callers on hold toss its cookies yesterday?
Howie was all flop-sweat about it. Just imagine, he could get calls on the
