RADIO WKSU to get 'Morning Edition' boost Show's host to pay a visit By Bob Dyer Beacon Journal radio writer " The only host in the 10-year history of National Public Radio's Morning Edition will be in Kent on Friday to help drum up business for WKSU (89.7-FM), which began a weeklong fund-raiser Saturday, march 11 Bob Edwards will be on the air from 10 a.m. to noon and again from 2:30 to 4 p.m. He'll also attend a reception for WKSU donors at the Akron Art Museum. The two-hour Morning Edition is heard on more than 90 percent of public radio's 365 stations, including WCPN (90.3-FM) in Qeveland. " IRS agents will swarm into the WAKR (1590-AM) studios Monday. That doesn't necessarily mean morning men Adam and Bob have taken liberties with their tax returns although perhaps their 1040s could use a little scrutiny after all those lucrative public appearances, which they seem to make every day and every night, greeting thousands and thousands of people who constantly hand them expensive gifts and pay huge sums of money to be in the same room with them. No, the kindly agents are scheduled to sit in a studio and field income-tax questions from WAKR listeners from 4 to 8 p.m. The agents, unlike morning jocks, will not receive any extra compensation. In 1974, WMJI (105.7-FM) evening jock Denny Sanders, then with WMMS (100.7-FM), was able to get a one-on-one phone interview with ex-Beatle John Lennon. That interview, along with concert cuts and other material, has been assembled into a three-hour WMJI special that will air at noon today. Stock market analysts say Milton Maltz handed himself and his family a real deal earlier this month when he took Malrite Communications private. Malrite owns Cleveland's WMMS, WHK (1420-AM) and WOIO (Channel 19), along with 12 other radio and TV stations around the nation. According to a story in the New York Times, Maltz paid $11.14 a share to take back the company, even though a variety of analysts valued the stock at $15 to $20 a share. Total purchase price was $46 million. Maltz and his family had owned 70 percent of the voting stock which meant the minority shareholders didn't have much clout, the story said. Maltz founded the company in 1956 and went public in 1984. A new Big Band show has been added at WRMR (850-AM). Don Kennedy's Big Band Jump is on Saturdays from 6 to 8 p.m. The people at WLTF (106.5-FM) have finally put down their abacuses: The eighth annual Coats for Kids holiday campaign netted $125,000 and 17,110 coats. The company that owns Cleveland stations WRQC (92.3-FM) and WJMO (1490-AM) has been sold. TA Communications Partners, a venture capital firm, has bought United Broadcasting Co., the Bethesda, Md., company that owns the local entries and seven other stations. Price: about $75 million. Meanwhile, WRQC is getting a new antenna with more height and wattage, to enable it to be heard much more easily in the Akron area. Denny Alexander, the programmer sacked in January by Akron's WQMX (94.9-FM), has been hired to program an oldies station in Portsmouth, N.H. He starts Mon day, march 13 Former Akron programmer Nick Anthony may be running a station that can be heard in 30-some states and part of Canada, but he's doing it from a desk where you can't see across the street. Anthony, late of WKDD (96.5-FM), is housed in the office equivalent of a cave, a windowless, 12-by-12 room. Although his new employer, WWWE (1100-AM), is situated in The Park, a fancy downtown Cleveland complex consisting of shops, apartments and offices, the WWWE facilities have seen better days. Station owners have delayed sinking money into the old homestead while trying to decide whether to move to another downtown location. At least WWWE has cleaned up its on-the-air act. When Anthony took over, the station was running 20 to 22 spots per hour many of them required by the terms of a slew of network contracts. Anthony has nuked all of the networks except CBS and the ABC Information network, and has cut the commercial aggravation to about 14 minutes per hour.
