Saskatchewan Newstalk Radio host John Gormley seems to be irked that I have not appeared on his open mouth show for over 1 year now. Otherwise, he wouldn't have commented about it, in his 2009 predictions column that ran in today's (Jan 2, 2009) Saskatoon StarPhoenix.
Contrary to what Mr. Gormley would have you believe, I'm not "boycotting" his show. I'm just not prepared to appear on it, until we've been able to work out a protocol with the senior management of Rawlco Radio.
Rawlco Radio senior management is well aware of this, and in fact I've had one meeting with Rawlco President, Pam Leyland - who was to arrange a second meeting with Rawlco's General Manager. I am still awaiting the scheduling of that meeting.
In the meantime, there are lots of alternatives out there. And I have no problem whatsoever engaging in respectful discussions, dialogues, and interviews with virtually every other media organization in Saskatchewan, and beyond.
Mr. Gormley, can continue to trash talk, spew vitriolic rants, attack and attempt to bully me all he wants. It obviously makes him feel good.
