    KGGO shakeup

    Just heard that KGGO and 98.3 are swapping Lou and Heather for Bob and Tom.

    95 KGGO

    Thoughts? I can't think this is good for old Lou. I couldn't stand him for short bursts followed by music. Can he sustain an interesting conversation for 3 hours?

    IMO, they fired the wrong guy. Round Guy could carry on an interview/conversation much longer, unless it was about NASCAR or truck racing.

    Re: KGGO shakeup

    That pretty much guarantees I won't listen to KGGO during my morning commute. Bob and Tom BLOW. They haven't been funny for 10 years, unless they're bringing in a good guest. I didn't like Lou and Heather all that much, but you could still get mostly music.

    Now we get 3 hours of a couple guys who are just no longer funny.

    Re: KGGO shakeup

    Bob and Tom turned me off the first day I listened to them because they have the most annoying laugh ever.


    I really enjoyed the discussion with TNT about a 30 year investment into various teams this morning.

    Probably moving them to 98.3 so when their rating are low they don't look like bad guys for firing them.

    Your right, they fired the wrong guy. They should have kept Bradshaw. I haven't listened to 98.3 or 94.9 since they did all this crap. They are off my car's radio memory.

    Sadly, you are probably right. Cumulus will then bring in another national show to replace them since those are cheaper then locals. Of course the ratings will fall even further but that won't matter since the margins will still be up a few % points.

    Re: KGGO shakeup

    Who cares? Des Moines has not been revelent in music radio since KFMG went the way of the internet. It's corporate radio and the decisions are made by somebody in a suit and tie, not someone that understands and actually listen to music. (how else do you explain Moves Like Jagger).

    This hurts local talent and local bands that otherwise won't get thier stuff played on the air. Corporate Radio Sucks.

    Re:KGGO shakeup

    If people wanted to listen to Bob and Tom they would on 98.3. It is stupid for them to swap. It will bring ratings down on both stations. It sounds like not many are happy about this including those involved in the move. KGGO had a good run guess all good things come to an end.

    Re: KGGO shakeup

    Makes sense to me. Bob an tom play on the classic rock formats in about every market. I never knew why des moines was different. They're ratings are pretty good despite the hate on here.

    Except Lou RG and Heather beat BNT in the ratings. People in Iowa like their local radio.

    Looks like I'll be taking the 100.3 The Bus for my morning commute

    That was because of the music. The talking in between the songs was unbearable on KGGO. Won't miss them.

    Why will talking all the time be better? If all people want is music they can listen to the bus
