After WEEP Wheeler came to 1360 WIXZ McKeesport where I worked part time.
Jack gave all his MINIMUM WAGE producers a hard time about anything and everything, from his coffee not being hot enough, to their private sexual preferences. We heard that KDKA ran out of people who would work for him...hence no producers. From my experience they were right.
A young guy who did excellent production work at 1360 made the mistake of telling
Jack he was gay.
Wheeler rode the kid so bad for weeks on end he wound up quitting in the middle of Jacks morning show as I recall.This was in the early to mid 70's, and gay bashing wasn't as frowned on as it is today.
Everybody in the joint hated him for that...but it was just Jack . He really believed he was a "star"!
I personally had no use for him after his clas less ness reared it's ugly head
