I was listening to WTKK tonight about 11:50 pm ("best of Laura Ingraham") when suddenly there was an announcement: a special report
from CNN. They joined it mid-sentence and the first bit I caught was
something like "moving from the Vice President's house into the White House" and then "...controversial pardon" and I
knew then that Jerry Ford had passed. About 5 minutes later, WBZ's Paul Sullivan mentioned it and I
believe Steve Leveille did the first couple hours of his show on the subject.

Back on WTKK, they stayed with CNN coverage for over an hour, ending at 1 am. WRKO did have Fox News coverage at the top of the hour but otherwise it was a Michael Savage rerun.
