Food Talk with Mike Colameco - Off the Air

Not even sure how many folks here were fans, but Food Talk on AM 710 WWOR is no more. It's a shame as Mike was a valuable contributor to the NYC area food scene.
Fine with me. Used to love him til he became a sell out to all the things he formerly argued against because they advertised on his station.
There is a recent thread on same subject here:
Firegoat, yeah if you host a show you have to shill for advertisers. It comes with the territory. It's not always a good thing, but if that's what the host has to do to survive, I can live with it. Mike Colameco was a small fish just trying to stay alive in the pond. I don't begrudge him a few endorsements.
Much worse offenders IMHO are: Rocco DiSpirito the patron saint of selling his soul and anything that may come with it; Tom Collicchio and Top Chef (product placement, product placement, product placement); and Martha "It's A Good Thing To Fatten My Bank Account" Stewart and Ray Ray with her EVOO and own line of products.
