TV Note: 10/9/01

'Charmed' to TNT

Episodes of The WB's "Charmed" will air on TNT at 10 p.m. Tuesdays, beginning tonight, five days after the episodes premiere on The WB.

This continues efforts to leverage the production cost of TV shows by finding additional runs on outlets owned by the same company, in this case AOL Time Warner.

HBO comedy changes

Beginning Sunday, HBO's original comedy series will switch time slots.

"Curb Your Enthusiasm" will now air at 10 p.m. following "Band of Brothers" with "The Mind of the Married Man" at 10:30 p.m.

Rush going deaf

Radio commentator Rush Limbaugh told listeners yesterday that he's virtually deaf but that he wants to continue his nationally syndicated talk show.

Limbaugh said he noticed in May that he had trouble hearing in his left ear. He said it had progressively worsened to the point where he is totally deaf in that ear. He has partial hearing in his right ear, he said.

"I can occasionally talk to people in person one on one if their voice frequency happens to fit the range that I can still hear, but I cannot hear radio," he said. "I cannot hear television. I cannot hear music. I am, for all practical purposes, deaf -- and it's happened in three months."

This summer, Limbaugh renewed his contract with the Premiere Radio Networks through 2009, reportedly for the highest price ever in radio syndication. Through his call-in show and a 90-second radio commentary, he reaches some 20 million listeners on nearly 600 stations.

Limbaugh, 50, has been doing his conservative-themed radio show for 14 years.

He said he wants to continue his show, and is experimenting with ways that he can still communicate with telephone callers. If that doesn't work, he may do the show without callers.

Promoted

Clear Channel Communications has promoted John Rohm to regional vice president. He has been with the company since 1996 and has been executive vice president for Clear Channel's six Pittsburgh stations (WDVE-FM, WXDX-FM, WWSW-FM, WKST-FM and WBGG-AM) since 1999.

He'll continue to run the Pittsburgh stations and also will now oversee Clear Channel stations and events in Johnstown and Wheeling, W.Va., including the Capital Theatre and Jamboree in the Hills.
