    Thanks Chris for KGYM 1600 Appearance

    It's an uphill battle to get the media to pay attention to Iowa State in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City market. Pollard was on 1600 KGYM last week and was happy to tune in and hear Chris on tonight. The hosts are full-blooded Hawkeyes, but they are trying to include Iowa State talk and having people on who represent Iowa State keeps them talking about us.

    Despite these guys being misguided in their loyalties and often misinformed about the Cyclones, they seem to be decent folks. They do not lower themselves to "shock jock" status. The more Cyclone content on local airwaves the better. Thanks Chris for the appearance. Maybe we can get them to pick up Cyclone Reaction in the future.

    The two Hawk schills are actually pretty good guys and do a decent job. They are respectful to ISU when I listen.

    I tune in to 1600 for games, and am glad they are broadcasting Cyclones stuff in the CR/IC area, but rarely tune in to their talk shows because they tend to be crap. Anybody have a podcast or link to pollard or chris's appearences?

    Not a problem at all. I was glad to do it. Sounds like I might do some more work with them in the future. Thanks for listening!

    Re: Thanks Chris for KGYM 1600 Appearance

    I've kind of done a 180 on B&B. The left a bad taste in my mouth when, in the first days of their program, they went on a tear about the Big XII not being on as solid a footing as everyone thought. Now, whether they are just typical ill-informed outsiders looking in and just got lucky or they really knew what they were talking about is debatable, but they turned out to be right because the whole aTm thing blew up shortly after. Since then I've listened a few times and, while it is obvious where their allegiances lie, they are pretty respectful to the Cyclones and their fans and they HAVE obviously made an effort to cover them by having Chris on this week and JP on last week.

    Agreed, I didn't really give them a fair shake at first but for being in the CR/IC market they act like downright Cyclone alumni.
