Exclamation Major shake-up at FAN 590

Quote:
The FAN 590 is undergoing a major shake-up as a raft of on-air personalities were let go Thursday morning.

According to sources, the departed include morning co-hosts Don Landry and Gord Stellick, mid-morning host Mike Hogan and news announcer Rick Ralph. In addition, Jack Armstrong’s mid-afternoon show has been killed, though Armstrong and co-host Eric Smith may remain on staff.

+1000 Hopefully the morning people will have more knowledge about sports other then just Hockey. Because most of them didn't have a clue.

I read something about this recently. Their ratings beyond the Hockey Noon Hour and the Bob McCowan show were brutal.

One rumor/idea is to have the morning show to be involved in more than just simply sports, but also discuss politics and cultural things like that (movies, shows etc.) to gain more listening audience. I believe George Strombolopolous (or however you spell his name) was rumored for the morning show.

Ever? Give me a break! I'll admit he was a lot more ballanced then Stellick/Landry and was knowlegable about other sports as well, but certainly talked hockey. Often his 1st hour was all hockey.The other ones they should let go are faraway and Lajoie...both are horrible.

A Toronto friend is trying to get me to write up a pitch so we can go in and sell ourselves for a radio show tomorrow.

Don't think it'll work.

Ya and when Don Kollins was named Program Direction and Ulman was promoted to Snet you would think their would be a huge change.

Personally I hated Stellick and glad he is gone. Guy was so annoying and Landry following him is fantastic.

As for Hogan meh I could respect his opinion but never really cared about it. Looks like they may go more hockey OH JOY.



Temporary new lineup


6-9 Morning show with some fill ins until permanent replacement is found
9-12 Andrew Krystal
12-2 Hockey Central with Greg Brady as host
2-3 The Greg Brady show
3-6 Prime Time Sports with Bob Mccown
6-7 Blue Jays/Raptors pre-game

Well.... yes, but... probably not healthy.

And one of us would end up dead witha microphone sticking out of our chest.

My money's on you. I'm feisty.

But REALLY good on air.

You're not better at all.

You'd bring the sports crap. I'd be the entertainment.

And I can kill with foam. I've done it before.
