ABC BETRAYS RIPA Things are not happy in la la land. A feud exits between Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan. Kelly refuses to appear on her show twice this week after ABC reveals that Strahan exits Live With Kelly and Michael for Good Morning America in five months. Kelly says it will please her if Strahan bugs off before his set in stone September 2016 exodus to GMA. ABC execs ponder whether to add a third hour to GMA, which evicts Live. TMZ reports Kelly Ripa will return if they assure her Live does not get the ax.
LEGENDARY CHICAGO NEWS ANCHOR BAGS IT After 51 years in TV news, legendary Chicago news anchor Ron Magers signs off for the final time on WLS TV CH 7 on May 25, 2016. In August 1981, as top KSTP TV CH 5 anchor in Minneapolis-Saint Paul for 7 years Magers arrives in Chicago on WMAQ TV CH 5. Carol Marin remembers: For almost 13 years (1985 to 1997), I share an anchor desk at NBC Chicago with Ron Magers and I marvel at how easily and seamlessly he handles any situation, especially breaking news.

CHRIS KAYE [Radio Personality on 95 X• Bangor, ME/KBRZ-1460] (Freeport-Houston, TX) Took a Saturday road trip. Traveled through El Campo, Texas and couldn’t resist getting a few pictures of the KULP studio. This station still plays country music on the AM dial with live/local DJ’s. Weekday mornings you can tune in for the Trading Post where local listeners call in to sell items. KULP is a rarity in radio these days and truly a Texas legend.

TRIVIA ANSWER: On April 22 1993, Mosaic, the first Web browser releases to the public.
LESLIE WAYNE HODGES [ex KRCS DJ] (Lake Livingston, TX) While Club Dj in Ginger’s Lounge South West Hilton Houston 1983; Dave Ward would be here in Ginger’s Lounge about 10:49 p.m., 6780 South West Freeway is coming to mind for South West Hilton Hotel address. A waitress would come up to say; “Dave does not want any attention that he is here do not mention this between your records.” Believe Dave was on air on KCEN at Texas Highway 6 Eddy Texas KCEN NBC 6 Temple/Waco in the 1960’s then after getting to Houston called Doug Brown over at KWTX Channel 10 Waco then CBS/ABC simulcast to KBTX Channel 3 Bryan. Leslie.
ELVIS PRESLEY (January 8, 1935 to August 16, 1977) They put me on television. And the whole thing broke loose. It was wild, I tell ya for sure.
