No More Lisa Baden?
One of the things that has made my work in Washington DC bearable was the voice of Lisa Baden.
In Los Angeles, we have Sigalert which gets you where you need to go. But in Washington with traffic continually constipated by heavy traffic, perpetual construction and irascible drivers, Lisa’s humor, wit, style and charm kept me and my 5,000,000 friends on the DC Beltway tuned in every eight minutes.
Due to some contractual squabbling between Lisa’s employer and WTOP radio, her days of traffic advisories are no more. And, given the conditions of her neo-antebellum contract, she is prohibited from returning to WTOP until (ironically) Independence Day 2012.
In the mean time, Lisa will soon join WAVA, a popular Christian radio station in the Nation’s Capitol. You can read all the details at The Washington Examiner.
