No more wine
Phillip Silverstone, who was set to celebrate his 20th anniversary as a cohost on Time Out for Fine Wine, was told Tuesday by his bosses at WRTI-FM (90.1) that his daily feature had been killed. Silverstone joined the show in '91, when it was at WFLN.
"From what I heard, the station hired a consulting firm who told them that all nonmusic features should be dropped," says the British-born Chester County resident. That includes the Tours and Detours travel show hosted by local radio icon Ralph Collier. The 90-second wine program, which has aired daily at 3 p.m., will have its last broadcast Friday.
Herb Engelbert, who shares hosting duties with Silverstone, says he finds WRTI's decision befuddling since show hosts work as unpaid volunteers. "It's not as if they'll save money this way," he says. "And we're on-air for only 90 seconds!"
WRTI reps did not return requests for comment.
