...Ron Hartenbaums WYD Media Management and Dial Global.When we last heard from the inventive humorist (May 9 NOW), his camp said Phil has elected not to pursue any further association with Talk Radio Network. That shut the door on six years with TRN, which will feed a final Hendrie show next Monday, June 24. Hendrie stays busy with TV, movie and voiceover work, and said he would listen to opportunities back in terrestrial radio, but only those with strong sales, marketing and programming support. He apparently finds that synthesis in Ron Hartenbaums WYM Media Management shop (for affiliate sales and overall brand expansion) and Dial Global (ad sales and satellite distribution).
Hartenbaum says broadcast radio needs the breadth, depth and creativity of Phil Hendrie...hes a comic genius whos going to grow in ways most people cant even imagine. While Hendrie says Ron gets my show. New time slot will be 7pm to 10pm Pacific time starting a week from tonight, June 25. For starters, there will be a couple of weeks of Comedy gold, then a charged-up Phil Hendrie debuting Monday, July 8 and taking live callers. One of the mysteries of Phils act is guessing whos a listener and who sprouted from Phil's cerebral cortex. One reader says Its not well-known, but in the early days of Playboy Radio on Westwood One, the Playboy Advisor was voiced by Phil.
sometimes Phil is amusing but on the whole I find him to be a driveling leftist that I find to be a bore
I’ve listened to this Phil guy, because there were no other broadcasts worth listening to, coming from the six station radio monopoly and Marian radio station in town.
I think it’s time he retires.
It’s sad when “The Bob and Tom Show” has a more cognitive reality, than Phil.
It’s really sad, when another morning show, emanating from Houston, which claims “it sucks less than the others”, is the one I listen to, more.
Personally I think that five nights a week is just too much time for "Phil to fill" with the kind of material he does best.
As a comedian, Phil is nonpareil. As a commentator he flat out stinks. I hope he drops any pretension to punditry in the new show.
