ASK, AND THEY SHALL RECEIVE: In DC, Dan Steinberg reported WJFK show producers Matt Cahill and Matt Myers, "knowing Ford’s fondness for football, together crafted an e-mail to Ford’s public-relations staff more than a week ago, explaining that they’d like him to pick NFL games, as other politicians ... have long done for the show." WJFK Program Dir Chris Kinard said, "It was collaborative. They toss around who would we like to get if we could. Every once in a while one hits. And this one hit." Cahill and Myers "heard nothing until Tuesday, when they were told by a Ford staffer that the mayor was interested." Many outlets "have reported that Ford will make weekly appearances with the Junkies, but the station has only been promised this Thursday’s show." Kinard: "If it goes well, we’d love to have him weekly, but it’s just a one-time thing at this point" (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 12/4).
