BREAKING NEWS: Greg Williams, Take III

If you were surprised by Greg Williams' cameo on with Richard Hunter yesterday afternoon, you haven't been paying attention.
The Hammer, sacked by ESPN Radio in May partly because of a couple of wacky nights he blamed on a change in depression medication, will sit in with Big Dick the next couple of afternoons 4-6 p.m. – today, Friday, Monday and Tuesday, to be exact – on Rational Radio KMNY 1360 AM's and see where this thing goes.
No defined role, and the gig is somewhere comfortably between a tryout and full-time. It's the Wild Ass Circus, so who knows?
"It's the talk radio equivalent of a jam session," Hunter told me last night. "We wanted to do it before he went to ESPN, but he had a contractual conflict."
I know this: Williams should be – and is – thankful to have a friend like Richard Hunter.
First, BDH invited him to be a groomsman in his wedding at this jumpin' joint in Las Vegas. And now – you listening, Ticket boys? – when Williams needs a friend in the business Hunter is doing the opposite of turning his back on an old buddy.
I know, what a concept.
"There are two guys that I owe for my break in radio, and I will always have a place for either one of them to join me on air," says Hunter. "Hammer's one of them, and the other one is his former partner. I owe both those guys big time."
No, I don't think he's referring to RJ Choppy.
