I’ve been a listener to Paul Harvey, off and on, for about 30 years. He’s a good touchstone for me — a brief recap of news, commentary, and general oddness that lets me know what a certain element of the American people find interesting. He’s been a staple of WBZ, Boston’s news radio station, for as long as I can remember.
But no more.
As of January 2, WBZ has dumped Paul Harvey for yet more repetitions of the same news, weather, and sports.
Fortunately, a while ago his commentaries were available for streaming from his website, but WBZ’s decision has certainly made my radio habits a lot simpler. And freed up a pre-set on the Shaggin’ Wagon’s stereo.
