KANSAS CITY RADIO TALKER KELLY URICH COMEBACK AFTER PODCAST FAIL!!!
Our TKC blog community has been talking about this in the comments for about a week and so here's a bit of confirmation and update from a local radio insider . . .
Report: "Kelly Urich takes over the morning drive slot on December 26th, replacing Dick Wilson. Urich has been out of radio for about a year. But otherwise, Urich has worked at KBEQ, KXXR, KMXV, and three different formats on 99.7, most recently, KZPT."
This move offers an interesting opportunity for Mr. Urich after the demise of his online radio efforts but still begs the question:
CAN KELLY URICH SAVE KCMO RADIO???
His online podcasting effort suffered from tech glitches and was web based while the rest of the world adopted apps and mobile tech, still he shouldn't be faulted for trying new things.
Nevertheless . . .
The power of local celebrity can be tricky but we can't fault Mr. Urich for trying to rekindle the fortunes of a faltering station and his own rocky terrestrial radio career that certainly deserves even more attention.
You decide . . .
