  The Lowell Sun reported in their weekly political/gossip column Sunday 
that the "Paying Attention with Tommy Duggan" Saturday talk show had not 
been heard on WCAP the past two weeks. The column (which is not available on 
the Sun's website) stated they were told by WCAP management that the show is 
"on hiatus". The column also reported that earlier this year, Duggan, the 
show's host was bashing WCAP on his Facebook page and that he also had some 
not so nice on-air exchanges in recent weeks with Warren Shaw, who hosts the 
Saturday morning show that airs prior to Duggan's former timeslot. This 
morning, it was announced by morning host Ted Panos that "Paying Attention" 
will no longer be heard on WCAP, without giving a definitive reason as to 
why the show was dropped by the station. Panos also went on to comment on 
why the Sun devoted so much space in the column about "Paying Attention" 
while WCAP has refrained on commenting about the number of editors & 
reporters that have left the paper. (I should note that Ted Panos writes a 
weekly sports column every Tuesday in the Sun).
