Longtime PITTSBURGH-area brokered Lithuanian show "ECHOES OF LITHUANIA" has come to an end after four decades on the air, the last thirty on AM 810 INC. Ethnic WEDO-A. Host DALIA YUCIUS, whose late father VITO YUCIUS founded the show, told the PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE's ADRIAN MCCOY that sponsorship "just dwindled away... Sponsors are having financial difficulties. There's just no money. That's the bottom line. It's not that I want to give it up."
The Irish music show "ECHOES OF ERIN WITH DIANE BYRNES" will expand to 90 minutes to fill the departed Lithuanian show's slot on SUNDAYS at 12:30, starting this SUNDAY (6/7).
