KXNO has a very loyal following with their local shows and Ken Miller puts together a solid program. I'm not saying this is totally accurate but I had heard at one time that local content actually pulls a better number than the national shows in DSM.Are they on the skids? Why replace the 3rd hour of the #1 sports talk radio show with locals who have nothing to offer?
I’m guessing they replaced with locals because they are doing well. Isn’t there a podcast or there’s always satalite radio.Are they on the skids? Why replace the 3rd hour of the #1 sports talk radio show with locals who have nothing to offer?
Ken Miller has the best weekly guests on his shows and it's not even close.Local is better....that said....
The Morning Rush is unlistenable.
I have only taken in the Miller and Condon show once and it was only slightly better.
Murph and Andy is Ok
I really enjoy Chris and Ross.
As for national shows, I don't have any desire to listen to any of them.
IMO Miller is the best in the business here in central IA. Condon doesn't have your typical "radio voice" but i've never had any issues with him and he generally has some pretty good takes. Ken Miller isn't a Cyclone or a Hawkeye and doesn't sugar coat anything.But you still have to have Miller and Condon interview them...
One of the reasons I signed up for CycloneFanatic was because of Miller, but not in a good way.Miller is great. Conden is terrible.
Miller has a good set of advertisers. He wouldn't be there if he didn't. I wonder at time how much local ad revenue the national guys bring into KXNO.In general local shows do better. I suppose on a given station there is a mix that's optimal, but I think having a bulk of the time devoted to local shows from 6-6, and switching to national shows overnight is probably the best in terms of ratings. Purely a guess on my part, but I'd suspect costs are low to pick up a national show, but local shows probably make up for that to an extent with local advertisements.
Usually I don't have much interest in the national shows. They will talk every meaningless NFL detail to absolute death, and other topics are either ignored or are so poorly understood by the hosts it's painful to listen to.
