    I assume Willie is gone. Not on today, they still have his blog up, but they've pretty much hinted at Gary Jeff Walker taking over the job while not coming out directly and stating it.

    I caught that from Tracy Jones today as well. Kinda made me sick to my stomach.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Negative. The enquirer has reported he is staying after spending some time mulling it over.

    "I had to resolve in my mind where I wanted to be, and I've decided I want to stay in Cincinnati," Cunningham said Monday.

    Rejoice, or vomit, or somewhere in between. Big Willy is staying in Cincy.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Great news mainly because losing Willie and Mike would destroy WLW probably.

    I like Willy!!

    Now go find someone else besides Scott Sloan for the 9-12 show.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Yea Sloan doesnt fit Mike spot. Sloan is a good late night guy just because he talks about random stupid stuff and its a good wind down thing.

    I dont know how you can replace a guy like Mike. You gotta find a guy who can touch political stuff but still be semi unique.

    Can't take seriously lots of stuff that is said by talkers on 700. They are constantly looking for ways to create drama where none exists.

    Mike M. was an exception to the above comment.

    Sometimes it felt like McConnell was the lone exception.

    Since he is the station's Program Director, he probably can't do it...but I wish Darryl Parks would take over the McConnell slot. Parks is the closest personality on the WLW roster to McConnell and would fit perfect in the morning...
