    Sports Radio

    Remember not to many years ago when we had 3 sports radio stations in Des Moines? Now, we have two crappy ones. I really wish 940 AM would have made it, as it had the strongest signal of the three. Oh well, I guess I will just have to find an alternative.

    I hope we can get a solid local show soon because Jon Miller just doesn't get it done for me. And we need something local because those national shows on KXNO are brutal.

    Re: Sports Radio

    what national shows are brutal? In CR about as 'local' as we get is the coach's shows or whatever that announcer guy for UNI does.

    you really can't beat the DP show ... and ESPN radio is a staple.

    It'd be cool if 1700 had Cotlar in the afternoons when I am actually awake!

    I was listening to Jon's show on and off today and it was pretty good. Started off with KF (), But had Fennelly on and then Lickliter. Granted it was mostly hawk-talk, but there were good local interviews.

    I'd expect he'll have CPR on one of these days???? Jon?????

    He would have trouble filling his 1st hour if people are really listening to him. He is a morning guy plain and simple.

    yes, the show today was good...I will agree. But for the most part, it just doesn't interest me. I liked it when Deace was on 1460.

    The talent just moves around in Des Moines. They are at station A. Something happens at station A, they lose their job then station B hires them. Station B thrives puts station A out of business, the rest of the talent goes to station B. Station B fires someone they go to station C. Stations C start to do well and puts station C out of business. The talent goes to station C. Anyone see the cycle. IMO the problem is there are too many egos involved to keep everyone happy at the same station.
