It really is a travesty. I contacted the Louisville Courier-Journal's TV & Radio writer (Tom Dorsey) and he mentioned that he's heard from quite a few Reds fans. WKRD made the change because they feel they can make more money off of add-space for the talk radio format that is currently on 1080 AM than they can for Reds baseball.
But I've been writing WKRD. The more people that write - the better. And no, I haven't heard back from the radio station yet. In case you want to write them too, their site is www.790wkrd.com
(they own both 790 AM and 101.7).
