Given that KOGO had all but abandoned real news coverage in favor of outsourcing their reporting to Los Angeles, and filling their lineup with meaningless talkshows, it's nice to hear that they're trying to restore their credibility, and provide an actual service to this city the way they used to. The ratings don't lie -- KOGO abandoned San Diego for years and, in return, San Diego abandoned them.

Well my morning sucked without Merrill and the drive home was terrible with those two new hosts. I have already switched all of my radios to KFMB. You guys need to leave thing alone. Who needs to wake up listening to Ladonna;s voice??!! not me :(

I heard that Merrill is heading to afternoons at KFYI-AM in Phoenix.

Switched to 1170 which I found by accident when I couldn't find Merrill. The news shows are both boring and on repeat. Too bad, been listening to KOGO for years. New move doesn't work for me. Good luck.

Wow! You think KcBq is gonna fill your bill? Many times, they record their traffic report and run it for a couple of days.

KOGO's change is sooooooooo boring! I used to enjoy Merrill on my way to work and this constant repeat of the same news is awful. Until something changes at KOGO I will be listening to Armstrong and Getty in the morning and Roger driving home!

It must be difficult to put on good programming that captures a big audience, but things started going down hill when the moved Merrill from afternoon drive time. Sully is bore and I am glad he is gone from drive time, but this morning I tired of the low energy level and for the first time started checking out other stations. So far KFI seems to have the most captivating programming, but I wish it was san diego local. I tried KFMB but couldn't keep track of who was talking because it sounded like a small mob. I know everyone wants something different, but I think we all want to laugh now and then.
