    Perhaps someone should tell Sloan that he only works 3 hours a day with all those commercial breaks off and days off when the Reds play near his time slot and then he gets vacation days off on top of all that.

    Don't want to start a new thread... but for RZs who listen to WLW around 3pm weekdays - here's some news (which you probably already know about).

    A little disappointing but not surprising.

    Eddie was possibly the best thing going on 700. Wonder if he'll wind up at 96 Rock or one of the other Cumulus Stations like WARM 98, who only has one DJ left after firings last month. If so, it would be kinda cool working on the same floor as Eddie.

    I don't know Eddie that well, but I know him enough to say he got screwed...he'll be missed. He was a big reason I got in to radio.

    He's a guy you'd love to have a few beers with...he was always himself.

    Clear Channel made a huge mistake.

    96 wouldn't shock me for his next gig

    Hell, I got to work with him on air....I was only doing traffic reports, and I had no chance of being as quick witted as him when he would put me on the spot, but it was still pretty cool.

    With show prep and a lot of back end stuff that radio hosts do, usually it winds up being an 8-hour shift, FYI.

    I didn't read it that way, but sarcasm is sometimes tough to see in written form, so I could have missed it.

    Back on topic, please.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Apparantly.

    This probably means after Sportstalk my car will go to local Indianapolis stuff or static rather than listening to whomever they put in after 9.

    This station had the same guys in the same slots for years and years, now they are changing hosts more than my brother changes underwear.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13, 15
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I just gotta say one more time that they were incredibly stupid for letting Eddie Fingers go.
