Reading the Tea Leaves

Listening to WNPR this afternoon, between BBC World News and All Things Considered. I hear a new sponsor: Dr. Jerry Rosenfeld, the Dentist Who Caters to Cowards.

Dr. Jerry was a longtime advertiser on WTIC - for Colin McEnroe's show in particular. And he was one of the first to pull out when Colin was let go at the end of 2008.

So, what does it mean that a big Colin McEnroe fan is now sponsoring WNPR? Factor in that Colin will be a guest on Where We Live tomorrow? And that Colin "....had my big outplacement meeting at WTIC...." on Friday, wherein presumably the i's were dotted, the t's were crossed, and Colin might now be officially free to persue other projects.

As John Dankosky writes: "It will be the most important event of the winter in Connecticut, no question. Plus, he'll probably make fun of me." I most certainly will be listening, although that is pretty independent of who they have on!
