I probably saved this Seattle Times column because it was news of a shakeup at a KJR competitor in mid 1972. Tom Murphy had left KJR after a six year run for Los Angeles in early 1971. Scotty Brink got Tom’s afternoon shift at Channel 95 but was gone in four months. And I moved to afternoons (see KJR memo). I don’t recall what happened (or didn’t happened) for Tom in L.A. or what brought him back to Seattle and KOL. Nor do I remember how long he stayed . . . but I’m sure it wasn’t long. I am guessing that Tom established a format at KOL that was great for him. But this “more personality” approach wasn’t the best idea for the rest of the staff who didn’t have Tom’s talent.
