Actor Alec Baldwin is helping out public radio this pledge season with his own, um, “promos.” Titles on the spots include “Ira Glass has been reassigned to a Spanish Pop station” and “Don’t give.” Baldwin also suggests moving Scott Simon to the traffic beat, “and keeping him there — until you give.” Or how about putting Supreme Court reporter Nina Totenberg on sports? Baldwin explains various giving levels, including the “Hollywood Level, where Kai Ryssdal does your yardwork.” The 30 Rock star is a big fan of NPR, and was active in Peconic Public Broadcasting’s work to purchase WLIU-FM on Long Island.
