    KXNO is broadcasting the national show. There was no explanation given.

    Maybe they all got suspended or fired.

    Last time Marty went off, they gave him a couple days to cool off.

    My guess is they'll have to bring Cotlar back because their national programming is nothing compared to Mike and Mike.

    KXNO is getting tired. It's time for a shakeup there anyway. I don't listen to Cotler but he seems like a good guy. It would be a shame if a good guy lost his job because of hot head Marty. Also I wonder if this effects his Drake gig.

    I guess I don't quite know what Cotler's portion of the blame for this, or what he did to set Marty off. The only person who seemed to deserve suspension or firing from the argument itself was Marty.

    That national show was garbage, for the 5 seconds before I turned to Mike & Mike. They were still running Marty's promos during the commercial break, which I wouldn't think they would do if they'd canned his *** like they should have.

    I think you're giving KXNO too much credit. Even if M&M&C&C all got canned, I think they would still run the ads and hope we don't notice that the voices we are hearing no longer work for the station.

    The promo started out "This is Marty Tirrell..."

    I don't know what their national programming is but Mike & Mike sucks out loud.

    I've never had a problem with Mike and Mike (but can see why people wouldn't enjoy the local flavor) Is 1700 doing a morning show?

    Might be a cooling off period, but they probably just want to make sure they don't have callers calling him to ask about it on air.

    Will be interesting to see if Miller flies solo today or if they just do national programming at 4.

    That's my point. Don't we know him as "Martha Tirrell"? :jimlad:

    It is becoming a joke. Day by day. I am suprised they were smart enough to air all 3 hours of the DP show.

    Allegedly

    I wouldn't expect that anyone has been fired - or we would have heard by now. Not to say that they might not as things progress (FCC).

    Anyway, I wouldn't take any stock in who or what ads they aired this morning. I swear they don't know what promo they're rolling at any given time anyhow. There have been dozens of times where they'll run a promo for a particular game, or holiday event AFTER that event has already taken place. Heck, you could probably listent today and hear a whole host of ads that ended St Paddy's day or win tickets for the Big XII championship in Oklahoma City.

    If Cotlar had been on, it would have been the first hour of Steve Czaban, and tomorrow they would have aired the first hour of todays Dan Patrick show between 5-6.

    How the people that run that station think thats a good arrangement is beyond me.

    Indefinite suspension is never a good term to hear in radio DaddyMac

    Way back when they first put DP on the station, they explained that. I don't recall what it was, but it made sense in the respect they had some sort of obligation to both shows and that's the only way it'd work out. Obligations to other FSR shows or something, perhaps?

    Not much of an answer - but I don't think that it's KXNO's doing, if they wanted DP in their lineup.

    If the Champ (1700) had any itch what so ever to do local shows, I think now is the time to jump at it.
