Buzz does radio

Buzz Bissinger, writing a monthly column for The Inquirer between assignments for Vanity Fair, will start a two-hour talk show at 10 p.m. Sunday on WPHT (1210-AM and live-streamed).

Better keep a hand on the volume control.

"I have a tendency to go off," says Bissinger, with uncharacteristic understatement. "I plan to treat [callers] with respect unless they drive you nuts," he adds, saying he considers WPHT morning man Michael Smerconish a model of restraint.

Bissinger's next show has not been scheduled.
