Last night, local sports talk radio host Chris Duel got fired.The parent firm stated he was sacked for poor ratings. and their desire to go in another direction.
They should do it about seven more times, for the majority of the local yokels. Virtually every one of them (except for the SportsGrind) deserve to get sacked.
When I listen to local sports talk here, or what passes for it, I think the local populace has never heard anyone from anywhere else. It’s pathetic. You can’t listen to it on the way to work because the hosts are uninformed and generally harp on the same subjects repeatedly. You can’t listen to it on the way home, because the hosts are not only lack knowledge, they feel the need to pimp their web site and the “hot” women on them. Uh, dude: I’m in a CAR! Just like the majority of your listeners who WORK for a living. You really think I’m going to check out your web site? That’s why they call it “drive time!”
I think Walter Pasacrita (sic?) owns Clear Channel. He’s absolutely nauseating. He and local idiot Don Harris gave Greg Popovich a great reason to quit his radio show, by insulting Allen Iverson. Popovich, who obviously didn’t like doing the show, quit in protest. I don’t think anyone else could have survived that mess without getting fired. That is, unless they had pictures of the station owner in bed with a horse.
