THE SUN 24. BOB: GERRY CALLAHAN MADE RADIO SPORTS TELEPHONY For so long, many people forget it. HE STARTED HIS CAREER AS A SPORTING WRITER VERY DELEGATED FOR THE LOW SUN, BOSTON HERALD AND ILLUST SPORTS. THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN FORCED AT WEEI, IT COULD BE A GOOD IDEA FOR GERRY TO RETURN TO ITS WRITTEN ROOTS BECAUSE I MEAN IT AS A SUPPLEMENT, GERRY HAS ALWAYS BEEN TOO GOOD FOR THE TALK RADIO. I only know a little, he worked a few times with him, but also behind the scenes and in front of the microphone, we can tell him that he is intelligent, insane and funny, and that it is fun. AND TALK RADIO GIVES IT A PLATFORM TO PUT ALL THAT ON THE DISPLAY. BUT IF YOU SPEAK ABOUT LIVING, ALSO EXTENDALLY AT 20 HOURS A WEEK, YOU WILL TELL A FEW THINGS WHICH COULD WISH YOU TO WISH YOU. You will save time by talking about GOSSIP. You will start to think that the audience cares about your emotions with other hosts or what you had for dinner when all they really want is to be informed or entertained. GERRY can always do it as a writer, but as a talker, especially towards the end of his brilliant run, his morning show did not inform or do many things that he enjoyed entertaining. That's why they ended up falling in the ratings, which is my – which is why it is put on pasture. ED: INTERESTING THOUGHTS BECAUSE SPORTING WRITERS LIKE SHAUGHNESSY, ROB RYAN AND GERRY CALLAHAN, WHEN THEY WOULD write, I would hear their voice in my ear. MARIA: YOU SAID THAT BEFORE. ED: GERRY CALLAHAN WAS ONE. PASSION IN WRITING. BOB: ALL THREE IN BETWEEN THEM WERE WIDEN ON THE WAYS.
