    KXNO Morning show

    Whats going on with KXNO's morning show is a big topic on boards and etc all over central Iowa - but everyone wants to throw out names. I think this is being looked at wrong as the better question is what do people want?? That's what they're trying to figure out with the "KXNO's Got Talent" live auditions - which IMO is a great idea!

    So what do people want from a new "team"? A clone and a hawk - or neither? Shock Jock? Normal guys with above average knowledge? Maybe a show with more time for callers? More football, less football? Solo, two man, or trifecta team? So forth and so on...

    We all know the KXNO guys read the boards and have a good pulse on the listeners. So post what you want to hear in the near future....as an old political saying goes; "you can't ***** if you don't vote"

    They need a parrot and a monkey to do the show, would be the greatest two hours ever.

    On a side note, looking forward to Monday from 6 am to 8 am.

    Because of the format or the host?

    Re: KXNO Morning show

    I don't know for sure, I can wait for chemistry to develop but it certainly helps. I remember when Larry and Kushner were on that one station and I actually started liking them, deace and miller are close to my age so similar life and cultural experiences definitely made their humor ring home quite often.

    So I would say I like pairs, and preferably with a mix of experiences.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Re: KXNO Morning show

    I would like a combination of John Walters, Eric Heft, Ben Bruns, Paul Rhoads, Fred Hoiberg, Dan McCarney and of course, Johnny Orr.

    Re: KXNO Morning show

    There can never be too much football!

    I prefer a duo. Probably Clone or Hawk fans as opposed to outsiders who might not have the same passion most of us in these parts have. However, I would want them to be objective and tell it like it is for all teams as opposed to being a homer for their teams.

    I enjoy when shows take calls. There might not be many early in the day, but then again, I wouldn't want a two hour show if mostly calls. If there's something going on that people want to talk about, open up the phones. Fan interaction - calls, emails - gives us more of an invested interest when listeners can take part in the show.

    I couldn't disagree more, I think it's a terrible idea. It reminds me of around 2004 when reality shows like the apprenctice were just taking off. Deace tried his hand at doing it for Cyclone Nation with "The Reporter" or whatever the hell it was called. He had people coming on KXNO and trying various challenges. It was a disaster and I think abruptly he just ended it. The fact that KXNO didn't have a back up plan in place knowing that Deace and Miller weren't doing this forever speaks to the complete lack of radio talent in Des Moines. Without Chris on board I see this being another Cotlar and Company which ranged from terrible to unlistenable.

    Re: KXNO Morning show

    IMO, the best morning sports shows do NOT rely on callers much, if at all. Look at the landscape nationally. It seems personalilities drive morning shows.

    Re: KXNO Morning show

    Well, I would prefer a show with only neutral or Cyclone fans. In general, Iowa State fans on the radio tend to be a little more realistic and less annoying then the Hawk fans that are sure that every year they are the #1 team in the country.

    I'd love to see Chris, but apparently he doesn't want it. Then I would love to see Blum get a chance if he wants it. Ben Bruns would probably have a smart show, too bad he already has a good day job. I am probably in the minority, but I like Chuck Reed.

    I heard yesterday that Bobby Hanson and Tim Dwight are being considered. I am pretty sure Tim Dwight is an idiot, so that would be annoying. I would also be annoyed if that Tim Dyer guy that used to do radio got it.

    I'm guessing that they don't want anyone that they actually have to hire as a FT employee, so that leaves someone with another job somewhere, who wants to get up for a 6:00 am show.

    Re: KXNO Morning show

    Oh, and I'd like to see a show that actually gets guests on it.

    I was hot and cold on Steve and Jon's show. More often than not, they annoyed me when talking about local stuff. But I did enjoy listening to them talk about national sports. But I think they would have been less annoying if they had had guests on since then they wouldn't have spent so much time talking about conference expansion and how we were going to be killed.

    Re: KXNO Morning show

    I like two people on the show and will not listen if it is some hawkeye shill. There are already too many of those on DSM talk radio and looking forward to a fresh set of people that are not little eleven shills...

    Probably hard to do at that time.

    Re: KXNO Morning show

    Speaking from experience, it is tough to get other media members up at that time. Media guys generally late sleepers because most work late nights. However, I think that coaches actually prefer morning interviews to get them out of the way. Most of those guys are in the office well before 8 during the season.

    Cotler got guests in that time slot. For all of his annoying tendences he got guests.

    I'm pretty sure that the Iowa State coaches would come on. Maybe not Rhoads, but the coordinators would. I'm guessing Fennelly and Hoiberg would. Also, Cotler always had Eric Heft on. I bet John Walters would. I bet Bruns would.

    So there I've listed a short list of Iowa State guys. Obviously you could have Iowa people. Plus, you could always find guests from other teams.

    I would assume they have trimmed the possiblities down to the few that have a legit shot - so it's diferent that what Deace tried to do. What if they have a team in mind, but they can't start until Oct 1?

    Beings you think there is no talent in DM - what would you consider "talent"? The question of "what do you want in a new morning show" wasn't addressed in your prior post.
