    KxNO...

    ...is supposed to be the marquee, flagship sports radio station in DSM. Get these stu-stu-stuttering hacks off of the air. If you're supposedly the best you do not need to resort to learning on the job. Get some professionals in there. Bad job outta them.

    Careful where you cast stones. One of them is a regular poster on here.


    I think its going better today than last week but one of the guys needs to lay off the coffee and slow a bit down. You have to remember the first day of radio is tough, especially during a live audition.

    I'm more concerned with content than delivery and while some of the delivery needs to improve the content is by far the best since these auditions have started.

    Uggh.

    Well aware who my stones are cast toward. The first day of radio may be tough, but the first day of radio should be on a high school or college radio station.

    Re: KxNO...

    Great show this morning!

    As one of the previous submitters stated, content over delivery today. They had the perfect balance that everyone has been asking for. If these guys are given the show, KXNO just gained another morning fan.

    I stand by comment this is one of the laziest ideas I've ever heard in hiring on air talent.

    Re: KxNO...

    honestly, I didn't mind the show this morning, EXCEPT saying "theee" before everything.

    It is only a long E sound before a word that begins with a vowel. Thee Iowa State University, the hawkeyes.

    You would think a prerequisite is some level of experience. Apparently not. Agree with you completely. Appreciate their effort, but they are not Des Moines level talent. If they want to spend several years in small market radio in attempt to become Des Moines level talent, more power to them. But there are a wealth of more qualified people already working in radio.

    Without having heard any of them this was my first thought on the idea. I relate it to when Jim Rome criticizes all the shows taking tons of calls, calling it lazy. Not that Rome is the best ever but I agree, in both cases it seems like an easy way out rather than doing the work to a)find a seasoned team that fits or b)fill time in your show with good content.

    So who was the team today getting the mixed reviews?


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Re: KxNO...

    I agree, the content was good today but saying THEEEEE before everything was incredibly bush-league.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I agree on the THEE comments. As Steve Deace likes to say, "never gloss yourself."
