March 4, 2013 at 4:43 AM (PT)
Longtime CBS affiliate WBBM-TV (CBS 2)/CHICAGO news anchor and nationally-known television host and producer BILL KURTIS will host a new radio feature on the environment, reports CHICAGOLAND RADIO AND MEDIA.
"EARTH MATTERS," created by author and radio veteran JOHN ST. AUGUSTINE, has enlisted NEWSWEB Talk WCPT-A-F/CHICAGO as its first affiliate as of MARCH 11th, with an eye towards syndication.
KURTIS exited CBS 2 (along with co-anchor WALTER JACOBSEN) last THURSDAY; he is known nationally as the host of several documentary shows on the A&E network and for his narration in the movie "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy." He is also a frequent fill-in for CARL KASELL as announcer on NPR's "WAIT, WAIT... DON'T TELL ME."
