*Finally this week, our condolences to family, friends, and colleagues
of ABC Radio's Tim O'Donnell.  He began his career at Watertown's WOTT
(1410, now WUZZ), but made it to the network by his mid-twenties,
reporting on events that ranged from the assassination of Robert
Kennedy to Y2K.  O'Donnell suffered a heart attack December 5, and
died Wednesday morning (Dec. 13) at a hospital in Ridgewood, N.J.
O'Donnell was just 57; he's survived by wife Eileen and sons Tim and

*A few programming notes as we approach the end of the year: The final
regular issue of NERW will be published sometime next Monday (Dec. 25)
on <http://www.fybush.com>, and will go out Dec. 27 to those on the
mailing list.  Our annual Year in Review special, complete with this
year's Rant, will be posted to fybush.com first thing January 1, with
distribution to the mailing list January 3.  (It's not too late to
reserve advertising space in this special issue at our low
charter-advertiser rates; just e-mail for details.)
