    KXNO question

    So a tuned into Miller's show to hear about Iowa State's game. I got in there late and it's both Miller's on there (so obviously no women's talk). But I'm curious if they discussed last week at all or what Ken is going to do.

    They said that Ken will spend a good part of tomorrow's show talking about what's going on at the station...

    Re: KXNO question

    I took off from the office at 1:15 for a late lunch and on the way home I heard a promo by Marty plugging guests they were going to have on their Marty & Miller show this Wednesday. It really wasn't an advertisement, just a plug for their show. I thought that was a little odd.

    Wow - pretty boring. I miss Marty already. Both Millers are introverts, and it shows...

    Not going to lie. I would love to hear Marty back on the air soon. Think KXNO would ever re-hire him?

    I have a feeling they will go to the 4-6 slot bring in a new guy for 2-4. This is a just warm-up to see how they work together.

    Heard the same promo this morning - you would think by this point that KXNO would have taken any of his promos promoting the station off the air.

    Then again, this is the station that run commericals for events that have all ready happened, and I do believe I once heard a commercial for Ruth Chris steakhouse during Cotlar.

    That would be admitting publicly that they made a mistake, and that will never happen.

    Sports radio in this town took a big hit, but KXNO made the right move.

    I've liked what I heard during the first hour. My preference would be Miller & Miller from 2-6 and conduct a nation wide search for the morning drive time. A local show from 6-9, but not necessarily a host with "Iowa ties", something that I cann't stand. A morning drive time show that can mix in the national stories, deliver national opinions, and present an unbiased, "informative" view of both Iowa & Iowa St.

    I don't want a host who's going to *** kiss either school or either conference for that matter, but yet, I want a show with opinion, unlike Cotlar who's trademark phrase was "you just don't know".

    Re: KXNO question

    Why wouldn't you want some hosts from the state of Iowa that know what they are talking about?

    Agreed. I'd much rather have someone from Iowa who can knowledgeably talk about the in-state teams and national stories, rather than someone from someplace else who can talk forever about the national stuff and then pretend to care what's happening with the local teams.

    The good thing about the latter is they can give an OBJECTIVE opionion on the in state teams...

    I see what you mean, but I think it's possible for somebody from within the state to do that too.
