Lynn Cullen to reappear in Pittsburgh — and in conservatives’ worst nightmares
PITTSBURGH — In partnership with Pittsburgh City Paper, local broadcasting legend Lynn Cullen will re-launch her talk show tomorrow, August 18. And this time, she won’t be restricted by signal strength, broadcast schedules, or even the FCC.
“Lynn Cullen Live” will be broadcast via streaming audio on City Paper‘s website, www.pghcitypaper.com. The program will air live from 10-11 am starting tomorrow and will air each weekday.
“I’ll be interviewing newsmakers and troublemakers. I’ll be providing an antidote to the incessant whining of radio’s doomsayers and fearmongers,” Cullen said. “I’m glad to be free of the constraints of commercial radio — and this beats screaming into a megaphone on Forbes and Murray.”
City Paper‘s online audience has grown by 25 percent in the past year, thanks in part to a recent redesign and additional features. “Our website has experience exceptional growth over the past year,” publisher Michael Frischling said. “We believe Lynn’s show will be a key element in continuing this dynamic trend.”
“We’re excited to be able to restore Lynn to her audience — and to her rightful place at the cutting edge of local media,” said Chris Potter, City Paper editor. “Now, thanks to the magic of the internet, she’ll be able to aggravate right-wingers all over the world, at any time of day or night.”
