6D SILDUiS POST-DISFATCH MonFtb. 6,1984: television Eric TelevisionRadio 7"X MONDAY EVENING I PUS UYQTKOdXT Dcst Dot Dierdorf Reverses Field After a distinguished career in pro football and some dabbling in ; sports broadcasting, Dan Dierdorf " has changed directions and is trying his hand at non-sports radio. ,' He worked a couple of days two ' weeks ago, but today really marks his Inauguration. Dierdorf's primary duties now revolve around the 4-to-6 afternoon drivetime shift for KMOX radio, teamed with Charlie (now called "Charles" by executive order) Brown. Word around the station is that general manager Robert Hyland decided at the last minute to replace Bob Osborne with Dierdorf, but Dierdorf said that "it was something Mr. Hyland discussed with me a few months ago." In any case, Dierdorf is sitting in the chair and slowly finding his way in the unseen world of radio broadcasting. He has had some experience as a more-or-less regular fixture on the KMOX sports call-in shows. But this isn't sports; it's news, weather, traffic, features, the odd sports report now and then, and talk. Dierdorf is aware of the rj difference. "I'm eager for the v luarnx iu uu suiiiciuiiig uuici iuau f sports," he said. "It's a great i opportunity to expand how people look at and perceive me." The "talk" is the hard part, of p course. Saying "Now here's Bob with the news" or "Up to Don for a 1 look at traffic" doesn't exactly strain the creative Juices. But filling the spaces between reports ; in a way that sounds natural, relaxed and "in control" and ! exchanging banter with an on-air ' partner without sounding like a ! kid broadcasting from a basement ; takes a great deal of skill. Dierdorf may well have what it ; takes. He's uncommonly bright, articulate and possessed of an easy-going on-air manner. Time , will tell. Sports is not out of Dierdorf s . life, though. As noted here before, it's virtually assured that he will get the color-commentary assignment for KMOX's local m broadcasts of Cardinals football tjZnext season, replacing Joe Sullivan alongside Bill wilkerson. Dierdorf refused to confirm those . reports. He did say that plans now call for him to host KMOX's sports call- in snow rwo nignis a ween, ana ne also said there was a chance he might handle some CBS radio network football assignments next season. He was drafted hastily into ' service for the network during the most recent NFL playoffs, and he performed admirably especially, be said, for a guy who'd "never been in a broadcast booth . before." ' 6 it Channel 2 general assignment reporter Paul Farmer was fired last Monday, following an on-air gaffe the previous Saturday night in which he was accidentally shown mouthing an obscenity. Just after he had begun reading a story to viewers. Fanner learned that a mistake in the newsroom had made most of the story useless. He finished the story as best he could and then, believing he was no longer visible to the audience, vented his frustration at the foul-up by mouthing but not speaking aloud an obscenity. As fate would have It, the camera had remained focused on both him and anchor Donn Johnson, and some viewers apparently needed only a little competence in lip-reading to figure out the words. 'I apologize to the people who saw IL" Farmer said. "It was an unfortunate mistake. I've been in this Job for eight years, and I know better", Monday afternoon, Farmer said, news director Barry Copeland called him at home and told him he was fired, although not because of the incident Saturday night Farmer said that Copeland had told him that "my job performance was not up to the standards of KTVI-TV. They don't think I fit into the Times Mirror organization. I don't know what their standards are. They've never told me." Farmer said that the quality of his work had never been criticized by management before, although he acknowledged having been told that he had an "attitude" problem. Farmer was part of a team of Channel 2 reporters whose work on the Times Beach floods was submitted by the station for a local Emmy award. He went on to share primary responsibility for - continuing coverage of the dioxin story with former weekend anchor Jane Akre. He had been with the station for about a year and a half. Other station sources said that Farmer had a temper that flared up occasionally. But they also suggested that management may well have considered Farmer an enemy and might have been glad to have an excuse to dump him. On several occasions. Farmer had spoken out during staff meetings and had asked hard, direct questions about the direction the station was heading. "My attitude was one of dismay, concern and frustration," Farmer said, "that the station was sinking from first to fourth place. My problem, I guess, is that I cared about the place. If they find that attitude a problem, they're going to have to deal with a lot of other people, too." Times Mirror does seem to be concerned about attitudes, though. The company recently hired an outside management consulting firm to prepare a lengthy questionnaire and distribute it to all employees. According to people who filled out the form, one of the main areas of interest of the 30- to 40-page document was employees' attitudes toward management I bet some of those filled-out forms were hot enough to ignite.
