Chris Merrill is the best talk radio "entertainer" in San Diego! Very engaging topics and controversial banter.

Good Bye Chip!!!
I am so glad you have finally come to an end. He was a complete and absolute jerk. I always though that talk host were suppose to encourage conversation not cut you off because your opinion differ from theirs. Good Bye Chip!!!
