Radio Engineer for President

Radio Engineer for President

“He’s the most wired and connected person we know.”
That’s the pitch for Kerry for president – not that Kerry, but Kerry Richards, chief engineer of WOR(AM) in New York.
A radio engineer as president of the United States? Why not? Leave it to Tom Ray, corporate director of engineering for Buckley Broadcasting, to come up with the parody.
It turns out Kerry Richards even has a platform. The official Web site includes a photo of it.
“This platform is behind one row of equipment racks at WOR,” the caption explains. “While the primary purpose of this platform is to cover and protect the wiring, Kerry has been known to stand on this platform and pontificate.”
