TRIBUNE News-Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO is adding a weekly Old Time Radio show with veteran producer and syndicator CARL AMARI, reports ROBERTFEDER.COM. "THE WGN RADIO THEATRE WITH CARL AMARI" will air at 11p (CT) SUNDAYS starting APRIL 12th, filling the gap left by PATTI VASQUEZ' move to weekdays.
AMARI created the long-running "WHEN RADIO WAS" as a local show in CHICAGO (later syndicated nationally by DICK BRESCIA) and helped develop the 24/7 RADIO CLASSICS channel at SIRIUSXM. He sold his RADIO SPIRITS INC. to AUDIO BOOK CLUB in 1998 and launched FALCOLN PICTURE GROUP to deal in rights for classic TV shows and films and produced "THE TWILIGHT ZONE RADIO DRAMAS" for syndication in 2002.
