    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!

    Radio has gotten to be a joke anymore.

    I guess the take home in all of this is if you're in radio, rent, don't buy. I don't know how Tracy Jones has hung on so long

    Clear Channel usually fires people over their Christmas schedule. I guess this is the best next thing for them.

    WLW used to be on XM. I was bummed when it got eliminated. I had the best of both worlds. Love THE TRACER. Loved to listen to EXTRA Innings at night in crystal clear non static satellite radio.

    He was actually informed of the decision on Friday. He got back from his honeymoon on Thursday.

    It was either then, before his wedding, or this morning after he shows up and is ready to go.

    Never a good time to do it.


    He also still works for Clear Channel. He does a show in Richmond, VA, in which his numbers are excellent. He still has that gig, just not this one.

    I did about 4 years ago. The people they have on the radio around here were god awful then, and have gone down even further since then.

    For a span of about 25 years, I pretty much always had WLW on. I just thought it was a great radio station. McConnell,Burbank, Trumpy, Collinsworth, Furman and Willie were people that I listened to on a daily basis . Other than to listen to Reds games I never listen to WLW anymore. I invested in XM radio and haven't looked back.
