Names in the News : ‘Old Man’ Wakes Up Michael Reagan

From Times wire services

Michael Reagan, the adopted son of the President, began his first day on the job at KSDO radio in San Diego today with a wake-up call from his father.

A camera crew from CNN was on hand as Reagan co-anchored the morning news program at the station where he worked last summer as a fill-in host on a talk show. Reagan received a wake-up call from his distinguished dad that was played on the air.

President Reagan, who gave the last radio address of his presidency Saturday, said: “This is your old man. I’m a little too far away to hear your program, but I wanted to call and wish you good luck on your new show.” He also said he was homesick for California and looking forward to moving back. KSDO cannot be picked up in Los Angeles.
