Since Friday, a character who calls himself “Corporate Suit” and haunts radio sites including BlatherWatch has been writing in our comments threads that Don O’Neill, the lesser of Ron & Don (KIRO m-f, 3-7p) had been suspended for bad behavior. He wrote that his sources were great, and dared us to get the “scoop.”
It was true that O’Neill was mysteriously missing Friday and Monday.
After rattling the usual cages of our mighty network, we concluded that CS’s scoop was probably the fecal kind.
We were correct, but there was a big secret revealed on the R & D show Tuesday afternoon. After a secret 9-month gestation, O’Neil announced that he was the new father of a 7 lb 11 oz. baby boy named Gunnar.
(Corporate Suit was hoping we’d run an apocryphal and embarrassing story we’d end up having to apologize for. CS, who was fired last year from Fisher, has been having the kind of emotional problems that go with a man his age being unemployed with poor prospects for returning to work. We hope his acting out stays in this kind of passive-aggressive, non-violent type. May we suggest group counseling?)
