Robservations on the media beat:
Eddie and Jobo
- It's not the full-fledged comeback their fans have been hoping for, but Ed Volkman and Joe Bohannon will be reunited on Chicago radio next week for the first time in 16 months. The durable duo, who ended their 20-year run on CBS Radio rhythmic Top 40 WBBM-FM (96.3) in November 2008, will turn up as guest hosts on Citadel Broadcasting news/talk WLS-AM (890). They'll be filling in one day next week for afternoon personality Roe Conn. Also slated to fill in for Conn another day will be the four hosts of CBS-owned WBBM-Channel 2's "Monsters and Money in the Morning" -- Mike North, Dan Jiggetts, Terry Savage and Mike Hegedus.
- Oprah Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King, has been picked up for radio syndication in a deal announced Monday between Chicago-based Harpo Radio and Westwood One.
