Maria Todd and Atom Smasher Together Again?

Ever since Maria and Atom were fired last July, people have come to my site trying to figure out what the heck happened to them.

Before any more of you slackers writes in and tells me that Maria Todd is appearing on yet ANOTHER Texas station in the morning, let me tell you what this sleuth has put together.

Here's what's going on, as far as I can tell.

On Monday, I reported to you that a listener reported to me that Maria was going to be joining Kidd Kraddick in the morning in San Antonio on 96.1.

Then today, somebody named Jose D. sent me an email (when he probably should have been working) and told me that Maria was going to be filling in for Kellie Rasberry who is going on maternity leave from KISS 106.1 in Dallas.

Here's the deal: Kellie Rasberry is Kidd Kraddick's pregnant sidekick (I don't think Kidd is the father, so don't go there), and Kidd's show is syndicated throughout the southern US (and a couple other states not in the south but that maybe should be - you know who you are).

When Atom Smasher got an afternoon gig on KISS 106.1 last month, he must have pulled in Maria for the upcoming temporary morning gig.

Now that I'm a writer of radio related rants, I should have known all about Kidd (with 2 "D"s) and his little morning show empire.

Where will things go from here? That's probably up to you and your advertising dollars, but don't cry for M & A - it looks like they've landed on their feet, for now.
