OK. Here's the thing I don't understand. Michael Savage last night was crowing that he was coming to WLS. At one point, I believe he said that his taking over Sean Hannity's time slots was paramount to the biggest shakeup ever in the history of talk radio.
I seem to remember a Cumulus exec. complaining that the controversy surrounding Rush, all the boycotts and the advertisers that bolted, caused a loss in revenue. Michael Savage seems to me to be much more controversial than Hannity. Hell, Hannity seems mild by comparison. So why would Cumulus replace a Hannity with a Savage? It would seem that they are signing up for more boycotts and loss in advertising.
Finally, what gives with WLS becoming all sports? Is that still going to happen? How can the station go to all sports, when they have Rush and Savage signed up? And please, if the station is not going to be all sports, make Roe and Roeper stop doing their 5 o'clock sports hour. I used to love listening to their Top Five at Five when I got off work. I tried listening to their sports hour, but I had to stop after they called Lou Canellis "Sweeeet Lou" about 20 times in one show. That whole hour is painful. Why do they even still have the sports hour if WLS is not going to be an all-sports network?
Lots of questions on a Thursday, I know. I will hang up and listen.
