If everyone liked the same type of radio shows we wouldn't have such a large variety to select from.Originally Posted by wickedacoustic

Looks like his time away from the airwaves was short lived. From the News Sentinel:
Pat White returning to local airwaves?
Radio station WGL may be hiring recently fired WOWO talk-show host.
By Kevin Leininger
of The News-Sentinel
Is a longtime local talk-radio host abruptly fired by WOWO in April planning a return to the airwaves?
Radio station WGL, 1250-AM, has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday, saying it will make a “major announcement . . . (that) will dramatically change radio broadcasting in Fort Wayne and northeast Indiana beginning Monday, June 14th, at 6 a.m.”
The announcement offered no specifics, saying only that executives from Summit City Radio, owner of WGL, would answer questions Wednesday. But the release was sent to The News-Sentinel by Pat White, whose afternoon show on WOWO, 1190-Am, was cancelled without warning April 23, ending White's 14-year tenure at the station.
When contacted Monday, White declined to comment, saying he had been asked to wait until the press conference to discuss his plans.
WGL's current format features music and other programming, but the station is no stranger to conservative talk radio. In fact, former owner Frank Kovas, who died in 2005, was a local pioneer in the field. Kovas and his wife, Connie, used the station's “Intercom” program in the 1980s to promote their views on a variety of topics, most notably an $11 million airport-improvement bond, but cancelled the show in 1991. The station – at one time owned by then-News-Sentinel Publisher Helene Foellinger – also aired the nation's No. 1 talk-radio show, Rush Limbaugh's program, before it moved to WOWO in 1996.
White told The News-Sentinel in April he was shocked by WOWO's decision to replace him with Pat Miller. “They told me they wanted to go in another direction,” he said. In a statement, Federated Media General Manager Mark DePrez said Miller would be more compatible with other WOWO programming, including Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity.
White's show on WOWO was often political but covered a broad range of other local topics.
