Me thinks they struck a deal with the union allowing 'some limited banter'
with the host.

If the producers were smart, they would've support the unions position.  As
it is, you have poverty wage board ops, bantering with hosts who are making
3 times their salaries.

If Howie (or management) *really* wants them on the air and part of the
show....Then let them pay for it.  (Instead, they are paid with their ego
being stroked, by being "on-air"...)
That won't put the kids thru college though....

Whats up with that?  Did "Stephanie something" get the gig for good?  ...or
has any decision been made yet?

Personally, I would love to see Jim Bohannon fill that spot.  (That's right,
not all syndie stuff is bad...)  :-)  IOf anyone has Al Mayers e-mail
address, I'd like to send him the suggestion....
