That is just downright disgusting; but I don't listen to WLW. I use to - when they were good, but not anymore.
Isn't Cunningham still the program director/station manager, or something of that sorts? If so. Then that reveals a lot.
The station has really come a long way (in the wrong direction) since the days of Rosemary Clooney, Bob Braun, and Ruth Lyons.
I tune in on the way to work in the evenings only to listen to the game.
When I heard that Jr got traded, and again while on my way to work, I tuned in and listened to Scott Sloan's show. The guy is a real duffus who showed no class or respect at all.

In 1999, soon-to-be free agent Ken Griffey Jr (and his agent) boxed the Mariners into a corner by saying they'd accept a trade ONLY to the Reds. The Ms offered him a contract of nearly $150 million to keep him with the team forever, and Griffey Jr. somehow reached the conclusion that the team did not want him
. Jim Bowden, the Reds' general manager, negotiates a staggeringly one-sided deal for one of the greatest players in history, and signs Jr to a 9 year 116.5 mil contract (with deferred monies until 2024)
Dragged? For that kind of deal you can tie me behind a car and drag
my bare butt across two miles of broken glass.
And lets also not forget who was standing (and beaming) next to him on that podium the day he was signed. His Dad, who had hopes/aspirations of managing the Reds (and his son) in a Cincy uniform.
Jr wasn't some innocent victim in all this who was somehow deceived (or duped) by management to come to Cincy.
