Local TV heavyweight now a radio guy.

Longtime Quad Cities (Iowa/Illinois) television anchor Gary Metivier does a podcast called “The Heart of the Story with Gary Metivier,” and now that podcast is part of the burgeoning radio/podcast network started by Fletcher Ford and his Regional Media group. Metivier says that he is “excited about the partnership with Regional Media,” saying, “Now, more than ever, people are seeking out connections to the people and places they turn to for music, talk radio, and podcasts. I support local radio. Stay tuned!”
