“The reason I think he wanted that on — he wanted that televised is that’s what narcissists do,” Stern said. “They think they can talk their way out of everything.”

The defamation trial that Johnny Depp has against his ex-wife Amber Heard remains ongoing. SiriusXM Howard Stern chimed in with his opinion regarding why television cameras are in the courtroom.

Stern believes Depp wanted the trial televised because the actor is a “narcissist,” desperately craving attention. Furthermore, the radio host went on to say that by having the cameras there, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star could persuade the court of public opinion.

“The reason I think he wanted that on — he wanted that televised is that’s what narcissists do,” Stern said. “They think they can talk their way out of everything.”

“On the narcissism scale, I think Johnny Depp is a huge narcissist — and what I mean by that is, he figured, ‘I’ll put this on TV. And because I’m so persuasive and I’m so smart, and I’m such a wonderful guy.’”

Furthermore, the radio host continued saying that if Depp wanted to save his career, he would have kept the cameras out of the courtroom throughout the trial. However, Stern adds that the actor’s narcissism played a role in having them there.

“But that’s what narcissists do. ‘I will charm the pants off of America at the trial.’ No, you won’t! This will not go well,” Stern said. “It’s not going well for you; it’s not going well for her. It’s not going well for anybody. You sound like two battling children.”

“It’s just coming off really badly. Johnny Depp testified in court for two days last week. Two days. Think about that; lots of room to embarrass yourself,” Stern continued. “Two full fu**ing days! First of all, his difficulty in speaking the English language is fantastic!”

A popular Baltimore radio host is recovering after having his leg amputated due to an allergy triggered by his Type 2 diabetes. According to the Baltimore Sun, WOLB’s Larry Young has been off the air since April 10.

“I knew I had a problem,” Young told the paper. “I didn’t know it was as severe as it was. When I got to the hospital, the doctors gave me two options: amputation or death. That is a terrible thing to hear.”

Young has been hosting the morning show on the Urban One-owned station for nearly three decades. He reportedly is planning to retire at the end of the year. 

“Larry is a wonderful person, and we all miss him terribly,” said WOLB GM Howard Mazer. “I’m sure all of our listeners are looking forward to his return.”

Young is no stranger to health scares. 18 years ago, he was rushed to the hospital after suffering a heart episode. Young said at the time, doctors gave him less than a 1% chance of surviving. 

“The word ‘no’ is not in Larry’s vocabulary,” Mazer said. “He will go out of his way to help someone, no matter what.

Former mayor Catherine Pugh will fill-in during Young’s absence.

NPR has announced a new partnership as the radio company reached a three deal with Take 1 which will transcribe its news, analysis, and podcast programming. 

Under the agreement, which started in January 2022, Take 1 is delivering NPR with exact, XML-based transcriptions for over 30 daily and weekly programs and limited series. Furthermore, the company will provide the stats with turnaround times varying from a few days to just a few hours.

“Almost all of my searches for transcribers show most U.S. providers cannot handle NPR’s high volume, high accuracy, and rush deadlines at an affordable price, and competitive businesses based abroad are unfamiliar with the intricacies of American-English accents, slang, idioms, and cultural references,” Laura Soto-Barra, NPR RAD chief (Research Archives & Data Strategy) said. 

“NPR poses an added challenge due to the many specialized subjects we cover, from world politics to science and medicine. Still additionally, the tech requirements and the format that allows the transcript to be ingested in the NPR systems present additional challenges not all companies can resolve. We’ve known the Take 1 team for many years, we’ve used their translation services in the past, and they were one of the very few I knew that could deliver against this brief.”

The multipurpose core of NPR’s transcripts signifies that accuracy and fast turnarounds are equally crucial to the company. In addition to being dispersed to NPR’s network of member stations, the transcriptions that Take 1 constructs are posted on the NPR website to make the content available.

WBEN’s Tim Wenger Recounts Covering Buffalo Mass Shooting as News Broke

“I received a phone call from a source that I have within the Buffalo Police Department who said he thought it would be a good idea if we had someone at the Tops Market on Jefferson Ave,” Wenger said.

This past weekend, an alleged White Supremacist went into a Buffalo supermarket in a predominantly black neighborhood and killed ten people. 

One of the news media outlets leading the coverage in Buffalo was Audacy “Newsradio 930” WBEN. The radio station jumped in to fill the nation and its residents as to what went on. 

In an interview with Inside Radio, Brand Manager Tim Wenger, talked the website through its coverage as soon as the news broke about the shooting.

“I received a phone call from a source that I have within the Buffalo Police Department who said he thought it would be a good idea if we had someone at the Tops Market on Jefferson Ave,” Wenger said.

“I did a little bit of research while I was on the way and discovered there was an active shooting situation (…) We had heard eight, and then nine and then 10. It just kept escalating over the course of a couple of hours on scene before finally, there was official word from authorities in the form of a press conference.”

Wenger then discussed how the story was developing, keeping the entire station on high alert to what was coming out and why they needed to be on top of the information. 

“This happened in a really close-knit community where people know each other. It’s not a typical urban environment where everybody just kind of goes about their business,” Wenger added. 

“This is a community that fought for that store to be there years ago. And we’re just trying to give everyone a voice and not decide for anybody what needs to happen but listen to everybody and let the community decide what needs to happen.”
