On Wednesday, January 30, 2013, Gil was the news in Bar Area traffic reports.  Listen to how he describes it in his January 31st broadcast (it’s at the beginning of Hour 1):

Also, around 24:00 on the same podcast, Gil talks about the death of former KGO/KSFO host, Lee Rodgers.

Following are a few articles about it:

Here’s his website:

I looked up Bernie Ward’s blog, The Lion of the Left Speaks, to find out if he’s written about Lee Rodgers’ death, but there is nothing posted yet.  I’ll check back later because I’m sure Bernie will write about it.  **Update: As I was posting this, the post about Lee Rodgers appeared.  I added it to the end of the list.  See below.

There are three recent posts from Bernie (plus the newly added one about Lee Rodgers):

Wednesday, January 16, 2013 – ‘Confession is Good for the Soul!’ (about Lance Armstrong and the double standards for famous offenders)

If you’re wondering, Bernie does mention forgiveness that relates to him personally:

“For those of you seething and chomping at the bit to accuse me of being self-serving, save your breath.  I will be fine.  I have an amazing family and I am loved. I’ve asked everyone of importance to me for forgiveness and apologized.  I have wonderful friends and acquaintances who stand by me.  I can return to my former profession, and expect to do so, and I will never make a stupid choice like this ever again.  I am very lucky.  The vast majority of those going home face a system you, and your representatives, have constructed and it’s one long minefield designed to explode in their faces.  The irony is, it hurts you and society as much as it does them.  It eats up billions of tax dollars…forces you to spend more on prisons than on the entire U.C. system…is a perpetual money machine, which will continue to drain resources forever with no long-term benefit to you, whatsoever.”

So, it looks like Bernie plans to return to broadcasting after his release from prison.

The other post from January 16th – ‘Four Years…’ (about Obama’s reelection)
