2008 Summer TCA Tour - Day 14

I spent a couple of incredible years at out local college station and it was incredibly fun and educational. Good on Keith!

Keith Olbermann has given a significant donation to WVBR-FM, the radio station in Ithaca, N.Y. where his career arguably began when he was a student at Cornell University.

Olbermann’s gift will allow WVBR – a commercial radio station run entirely by Cornell students – to move into a new, bigger facility much closer to the Cornell campus. The new building on East Buffalo Street in Ithaca will be named Olbermann-Corneliess Studios, after Olbermann’s late father Theodore Olbermann and Glenn Corneliess, a former program director at the station and a friend of Olbermann’s who died in 1996 at 39.

    I really miss him as well. The lone voice in the wilderness crying our warning when everyone else ran and hid from a rabidly nouveau-fascist government.
