What kind of radio do you listen too? Me, I listen to radio most of the time when I am driving to and from work and during my lunch break. Also when I make long business trips around the country in my van. When I listen, it is to Talk Radio. So you'll find the first button on my radios for 1130 WISN and the next for 620 WTMJ. In the evening when I'm driving around I'll listen to Shawn Hannity on WISN, but lately they drop it in favor of playing, yawn, Milwaukee Panther basketball. A punch of button #2 often brings a Badger's game rather than some discussion. Dennis Miller can be interesting when he doesn't over-do his extensive vocabulary.
I fail to see how it is a service to their listeners when radio stations that target News and Talk Radio listeners, suddenly become a sports outlet. Save the sports broadcasts for some of the radio stations that play music. Heck, there's plenty of alternatives that their listeners can switch to.
On an interesting note, I see that Bill O'Rielly will be leaving his talk radio show in March and Fred Thompson will be taking over. Fred's home spun wisdom and commentary will be welcomed, if only we could hear it in the Milwaukee area. The closest station that I've found to carry Bill O'Rielly is one in Racine and the last time I checked, it must be transmitting on a wet noodle for an antenna like WISN does in the evening. WISN's programming director, Jerry Bott, makes a good talk show host himself but he needs to cater to his customers rather than to the few people who can't wait to hear the next exciting Panther's game!
