Interesting that they are punting the midday and afternoon news, which according to the General Manager, helped KOGO catapult to #1 withing a year.

P.S. DeMaio is totally unlistenable.

^^^ I doubt that. Dave Sniff giving up Hannity was a boneheaded move. Sean will add more listeners and Arby's

Has Sean Hannity's show been a strong performer for KFMB? Why would they let him go, and why would KOGO want to displace their "successful" news programming?

What's going to take Seans place at 760 Michael Savage.

Displacing their news? Except for Err Amerika, you did'nt see format tweaking every few weeks.. I find it hard to believe that Sniff really thinks Mike Slater is the face of the station. He gets changed every six months. And I dont get the 760 Savage question

I like Michael Savage because he is the truth no Socal station wants to carry his show. I have to listen to KSFO through IHeart to listen. Just my opinion.

Word on the street is Hannity's contract was up...not Sniff's call.

^^^^^Contract with KFMB? You can't tell me that KFMB Arbitrons are gonna skyrocket with Slater and Winterble? They are heading to KCBQ territory and I predict they'll "unsubscribe" from Nielsen to save money

Don't all syndication affiliates have contracts with their program vendors?

Can't believe KOGO again took away the news during the main afternoon drive time. Carlo should not be on the air!
