THE FIRING OF BOB OLIVER
One of the most controversial personnel changes at WARM Radio became very public in October of 1969. Bob Oliver first was a Newsman at The Mighyt 590. Known as Robert Oliver, I first heard him when he broke the news of the death of the 31st President, Herbert Hoover.
Later Oliver gained an air slot on WARM after the departure of Tommy Woods who went to WTOP in Washington, D.C.
Oliver's transgression was minuscule and pale in comparison to some of the stuff you heard on the radio later on. I mean this was no Howard Stern broadcast.
Here is the press news on what he said and what caused a very unusual and public dismissal. To this day, many people repeat the phrase about his firing and the reason why, "No good deed goes unpunished!"
