According to TVSpy, Jaquez, at 5:34 p.m. last Thursday, reported live from Temple University Hospital that she had solid information that the officer was dead.

STRONG RUMORS around the local CBS Radio cluster suggest that 94 WYSP will become the FM home of Sportsradio 610 WIP and drop its longtime rock format around Labor Day. WIP program director Andy Bloom said that he could neither confirm nor deny the rumor but that there were rumors about the stations all the time. CBS Radio market manager Marc Rayfield said essentially the same thing. But CBS Radio recently flipped two underperforming music stations - WJZ FM in Baltimore and WBZ in Boston - to sports.

ALTHOUGH HE'S PUT HIS Old City condo on the market, Danny Bonaduce says he isn't leaving town. At least he hopes not. Bonaduce was among hosts ousted when 94 WYSP became 94 WIP last month. The Broomall-born former "Partridge Family" actor says that he is still under contract with CBS Radio and that he and wife, Amy , would move to Bala Cynwyd if he ends up working at 98.1 WOGL, Talk Radio 1210 AM or 94 WIP, both of which are headquartered on City Avenue. He said that he lived in Old City because it was close to the former home of 94 WYSP, at 4th & Market.

Radio and television hunorist Henry Morgan, who delighted in taunting sponsors with his sometimes savage comments about their products, died Thursday of lung cancer at his home in Manhattan. He was 79. His satirical comedy was first displayed on radio in the 1930s in Philadelphia, where he won himself a local following as a staff announcer on WCAU-AM. Later, with his signature sign-on of "Good evening, anybody. Here's Morgan," he won national recognition in the 1940s, first with a local 15- minute program from New York, then a half-hour radio network show that featured his off-beat humor.

It's been quite a 2010 for conservative media icon Glenn Beck - spurring on the tea-party movement, drawing a throng to his August rally at the Lincoln Memorial and becoming a finalist for Time 's Person of the Year. But come 2011, Beck will be off the radio in Philadelphia - at least as it stands now. Beck and his fellow right-wing gabber Sean Hannity were dumped yesterday by the city's top-ranked talk-radio outlet, WPHT, The Big Talker (1210-AM), in a shakeup aimed at keepin' it local.

For eight months, beginning last April, Moraima Kelly was the co-host of WPHI-FM's hot morning show "Tony Rich and the Home Team. " Known for her forthright opinions, Kelly seemed to be a popular addition to the fledging station's morning team. Then, in October, she disappeared. Now, Kelly is six months pregnant, and has filed a claim with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission alleging that she was fired as a result of gender and pregnancy discrimination. Philly 103.9 general manager Darryl Trent denies any wrongdoing on the part of the station, saying that Kelly's dismissal was an internal personnel decision.

Since the early 1970s, all-news radio KYW-AM (1060) had been broadcast from "here on Independence Mall" - a touchstone for the region. KYW anchors peppered the radio waves daily with that location as they fired off news bulletins that informed listeners of "the world" in 22-minute stretches. "We had a gorgeous view," morning anchor Carol MacKenzie said recently of KYW's 10th-floor studios at Fourth and Market Streets. "The sunrises there were spectacular. I had so many pictures on my cellphone.

This morning, fans who regularly wake up to WIP 610 may have wondered what happened to Angelo Cataldi's morning show. Where was the ranting about Andy Reid? The ogling of Wingettes? The banter with Al Morganti and Rhea Hughes? And why were these strange voices talking about the Clippers and the Knicks? Today, a national CBS sports talk network took over 610 AM, with the local sports lineup now found just on FM. For the most part. "CBS Sports Radio 610 is also the home for play-by-play coverage of St. Joseph's University Men's Basketball, Villanova Men's Basketball and Football, NFL Sunday Afternoon and Primetime (Thursday, Sunday and Monday Night Football)

ONCE, IN A simpler, less litigious time, fans at a baseball park could turn to their left, turn to their right, and someone would be sitting nearby listening to the game on the radio. It enhanced their enjoyment of the game even if their vision was 20/20, the on-air banter keeping them company through the slow but pleasurable pace of a summer game. And if they were visually impaired? It allowed them, for those 2 or 3 hours, to share an experience with their sighted friends or, in the cases of people such as my wife, with their husbands, sons and daughters.

So why did the 76ers abruptly leave CBS Radio for 97.5 The Fanatic last Saturday? A breach of contract by CBS Radio, says a source familiar with the deal. This divorce saga all started on April 3, when the Sixers played the Miami Heat in a game that ended up being broadcast on 98.1 WOGL rather than one of the team's usual radio homes — 610 WIP or 94 WIP. The Sixers were notified of the move just one day before the game, though their contract stipulated they be given a longer notice, we're told.

R USH LIMBAUGH, the dominant force in conservative talk radio in America for more than two decades, is leaving his longtime Philadelphia perch on 50,000-watt AM station WPHT, apparently for an unknown rival. The dramatic move shakes up the Philly radio market - and arguably the local political scene as well. It's not clear how much the move was influenced by the national uproar over Limbaugh's calling a Georgetown law student "a slut," which has caused at least 67 advertisers to jump ship.

PHILLIES GAMES will broadcast on 94WIP as well as on 1210 AM this season, WIP co-hosts Glen Macnow and Anthony Gargano announced yesterday, while broadcasting live from Citizens Bank Park. The Daily News reported Nov. 23 that this would be happening. At the time, neither the Phillies nor CBS Radio would discuss the plans. Both stations are owned by CBS Radio, so the simulcast certainly makes sense. The deal starts this month with live coverage of the team's spring-training camp from Clearwater, Fla. While 1210-AM boasts a strong signal already, the FM signal on 94.1 may be a clearer way to hear Scott Franzke and Larry Andersen 's broadcasts.

EVER WONDER how an all-news radio format with commercials would sound on FM? Looks like Philadelphia will soon find out. Merlin Media, headed by controversial former newspaper executive Randy Michaels, announced Tuesday that it had won the bidding for WKDN Camden, situated atop the dial at 106.9-FM. If Merlin follows the same course it took this summer with FM outlets WWWN, in Chicago, and WEMP, in New York, then Camden's current home for nondenominational Christian "Family Radio" will soon be a news/talk rival for CBS Radio's long-mighty KYW NewsRadio (1060-AM)
