UPDATE: I just learned the sad news of Larry Shannon’s passing.
His Talk Radio News newsletters have been invaluable to my work at WND, when I was trying to get handle on radio lingo, make sense of the ratings system and bone up on the history of talk.
He frequently linked to my WND column. I always thanked him via email, and he never failed to reply graciously and promptly.
Larry Shannon seemed like one of the good guys. We never met but I’m deeply saddened by his death.
