Makes one-week return engagement
A familiar Boston radio voice is back to giving New Englanders their news.
The Boston Herald reports longtime 1030 AM WBZ morning anchor Gary LaPierre is anchoring the morning shift this week as the station searches for a permanent successor to the recently retired Ed Walsh.
LaPierre ended a 43-year career in 2006 and was replaced by Walsh. Now he’s returning the favor.
In a blog posting, LaPierre says he promised never to get up again at 3 a.m. But he says he woke up 45 minutes early Monday and "knew I had done the right thing" when he flipped on his microphone at 5 a.m.
He also says he was in his pajamas at 2:15 p.m. to take a nap.
