Philadelphia Says Goodbye to John Ziegler

EXCERPT: Wave bye-bye to John Ziegler, who leaves Philly next month to take over a 9 a.m.-noon talk show on Louisville's WHAS-AM. Solo host, three-year deal.

The Washington Crossing native, who will continue to toss occasional firebombs on the People Paper's op-ed page, came back to Philly in 1998 to work at WWDB, got fired, rehired two weeks later, then got fired a week after that. (This might be a record.)

From 'DB, he went to WPHT-AM as a fill-in for Michael Smerconish, yet another People Paper op-ed artist.
Ziegler then did overnights at WIP, was a guest commentator on the local ABC station, and in early March became a commentator/producer on CN8's "It's Your Call"
