I'm sorry we fell out of touch and I'm still shaken to learn of his passing, but I'm glad to know he spent almost his whole career where he wanted to be his entire life: working mornings at 88.(I had already heard about Mike Ludlum's passing and was saddened by it; he was my first news director and I remember him fondly.
Regards &c., Bob eteran meteorologist Todd Glickman launched his career at Newsradio88 on May 5, 1979, at AM, and has been going strong ever since.
Todd writes: "I did my first weathercast on WCBS 880, with Gary Maurer as the anchor. Thanks to then News Director Lou Adler and GM Robert Hyland III who gave me the chance; and to my friend and colleague Craig Allen for letting me sit in the Weather Center "Big Chair" from time-to-time for over three decades." Here's Todd's first Newsradio88 office, the WCBS Weather Center at Black Rock: etired anchor Bob Gibson says: "I'd be remiss if I failed to take this opportunity to say that while I was unaware until now, I'm not surprised that Todd was offered the position of Chief Meteorologist only because over the years, regardless of what Mother Nature tossed at the metropolitan area, he has always been able to explain it in an easy to understand manner.
After one of the station's nattily-dressed salesmen strutted through the newsroom with an air of disdain, Dick would switch into self-assured mode and confidently stride across the room with a fake smile and firmly shake my hand: "Hi, Dick Spencer, Sales." One night, he came to visit me at another station where I worked part-time as a producer (we made far below union scale at 'EEI and many of us had second and third jobs).
The other station was #1 in the market, and its offices and studios had the fancy decor, equipment and accoutrements to match its ratings.
If there is nat sound in heaven - Lou will find it! I commute four days a week from my home in Milford, CT.
" --Bernard Gershon, former WCBS assistant news director - BOB VOSBURGH, 2/24/15. After my less-than-glamorous departure from Newsradio 88, I joined a small foodservice publication in Hackensack, NJ, then moved on to a national B2B trade pub, Supermarket News (at that time owned by Fairchild Publications of Women's Wear Daily fame), then left after 15 years there to assume my present position. I am glad to see you look great and am active with the others.
iliano, who was 67, died of cancer at a hospice on January 12, 2015, in Florida, according to a posting on the CBS News Radio website.
Lou's career at CBS began in 1989 until his retirement in 2007"I worked with Lou for many years, and the great thing about him as a newsman was his attention to ambient sound.
There was no one else I would want writing or on the desk during a crisis.
