Bob & Ray

For nearly 45 years Bob and Ray entertained millions of radio listeners and television viewers. Bob and Ray’s long partnership began at Boston radio station WHDH in 1946 when Goulding, after delivering the news on Elliott’s music program, began to stick around and swap anecdotes with the host. Listeners demanded more, however, and the station soon scheduled Matinee with Bob and Ray. It offered offbeat comments on the day’s news, fables about fictitious characters and bogus contest offers.

Leaving KOMO before her name makes the SINCLAIR hit-list of expendable employees, Lindsay Cohen takes a “real job” at online real estate website Zillow. We wish her well!!

And how did Cohen describe her time at KOMO in a Facebook comment


Not the first time a TV or radio personality has fallen back on the phrase, “It’s been a wonderful ride.” But, that is a bit played out. This is usually followed with “but I am happy to be able to spend more time with family.”

Someone needs to come up with a couple new phrases to describe leaving a media job.

Choose one from Column A and one from Column B:

“I saw the writing on the wall…”

“I read the trades and knew it was only a matter of time…”

“They said I could stay – but they wanted to cut my pay…”

“This is what happens when you become the most senior person at the station…”
“I feel like I’m ridin’ a gravy train on biscuit wheels.”

“Time to kick the dust of this place off my boots.”

“I’ve had more fun than a tornado in a trailer park.”

“I feel like I’ve been sucked through a knot hole.”

NOW, THIS…
