For the record, Craig Glazer is not buying KC Confidential…
For many of you, last week’s April Fools prank – announcing that the local comedy club main man was taking over KCC starting today – was exactly what it appeared to be, a joke.
However, in order to make it seem more believable, we opted not to set the record straight.
So for those of you who figured it out, congrats. For the rest of you, don’t feel bad, you’re far from alone and in excellent company.
“It’s funny, Tony was worried,” Glazer says. “He emailed me because I hadn’t written anything all week and said, “It’s not true, is it?’ So I went ahead and sent him a story and he was all relieved.”
“The head of KMBZ, the program director, walked up to me and asked me about it – how much I paid – he believed it,” Glazer says. “And I ran into John Holt, I think, at Fox 4 and he said, ‘Congratulations on buying KC Confidential.”
The $64 million question: Does Glazer want to buy KCC?
“No,” he says. “You know, you created it and there was a time when we talked about me possibly becoming a partner, but you didn’t want to do it, so I just let it go. Plus it’s a full time job and I have my hands full.
“I try and write something for Tony’s Kansas City three times a week, but I didn’t write anything for him until late last week and it began to look like it was true.”
So for all of you who took the bait, a belated, April Fools!
Until next year.
