Don't Call It a Comeback, Again

[Radio] A week from today, Tom Barberi returns to Utah's radio waves on KALL 700 AM. It's not exactly the same KALL that fired him years ago in a boneheaded move from talk to sports; different owners, but same sports. Back then, it was Clear Channel; now, it's Simmons, the same local company that recently launched an FM talk station with Barberi on mid-mornings, then killed it after barely a year (it was replaced by the Christian-ish Oasis music station, which also died quickly because Utahns don't like their Jesus and their rock together).

Confused? Here's more: Barberi will be on for a mere two hours weekdays, 5-7 a.m. Once again, that's 5-7 A.M. Not exactly prime morning drive-time, but at least it's something, right? And he'll be working in the same building with daughter Gina again. Aww ... (Bill Frost)
