In Lieu of Oscar Tribute, Sir Roger Moore Opts for LA Radio

Tomorrow afternoon between noon and 2 p.m. PT, legendary radio personality Michael Jackson will be subbing in as host on Talk Back with Chuck Wilder. Given the current rumored interest of former mayor Richard Riordan in being part of an LA Times bid and the recent city election, Jackson and Riordan together would be enough to make this noteworthy listening.

But also on tomorrow’s CRN Digital Talk Radio program (online and via member radio stations) will be Sir Roger Moore. That’s right, as in the former James Bond who would have been happy to participate in a proposed Academy Awards 007 tribute. From today’s announcement:

“I’m pleased to have the opportunity to fill in for Chuck and talk to one of the all-time, legendary actors in Sir Roger Moore and to also chat with one of the city’s greatest leaders, former Mayor Riordan,” Jackson said.

“Anytime you have outstanding guests as these, you’re always going to have an exciting and compelling show for the audience. I’m looking forward to it.

The Wilder program is two hours long, with Riordan and Moore each set for separate 20-minute segments. There’s also a very cool feature on the Talk Back page. If you go there now, click the “Record the Show” button and enter your email, tomorrow’s program will come to you.
