Federal News Radio announces changes
Only in Washington would you find a radio station devoted to the federal workforce and their favorite topics of discussion: IT, human resources, contracting and management.
Her departure means afternoon anchor Amy Morris will join Tom Temin for “The Federal Drive” morning show. Morris's current co-host, Chris Dorobek -- of DorobekInsider fame -- will go solo from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. with "The Dorobek Insider.” Francis Rose and other programs will fill the hours in between.
WFED 1500 AM is the sister station of Washington's all-news powerhouse WTOP and though it usually places dead last in the local radio ratings, it's a cash cow for owner Bonneville International thanks to advertisements and infomercials purchased by defense contracting firms, federal labor unions and other interest groups. It's also the radio home of the Washington Nationals and Washington Capitals thanks to a powerful AM signal that can be heard as far away as Cape Cod in the evenings.
The station holds a special place in The Eye's heart, since it's also the former frequency of Washington Post Radio, the failed "noble experiment" for which he once worked.
