For one day only, former presidential candidate Mitt Romney is going to pinch-hit today for Paul Harvey on ABC Radio Networks. Romney will do both the regular morning and afternoon news segments of Harvey’s program.
Ron Chapman continues to fill in most days, with Harvey due back behind the mic April 25th. He’s recovering from pneumonia and is scheduled for cataract surgery. Paul Harvey News & comment has been aired by ABC since 1951.
RBR/TVBR observation: No word on what ABC Radio is paying Romney for his one day of work, but it probably won’t help him recoup much of the 42.3 million bucks he spent out of his own bank accounts on his run for the GOP nomination. In all, Romney’s unsuccessful campaign cost 98 million. Well, at least he had fun.
