    Absolutely 1000% real. However, do you think that is because the schools are better or the contacts are better? Any more than that and I'd be delving into Cave territory. I'd have a quick snippet saying that hey I'm not the one who can't find every state on a map. Then again, I guess that I'm kinda of a jerk because I don't blow smoke.

    Yes, they are still pretty big areas. Have you never traveled? I mean I know a lot of East coasters never travel but still. I mean it's not like I'm talking about finding Eritrea or Djibouti (I did not know those were connected) on a map.

    That won't be awkward at all. Hey, just kidding, you're not fired!

    Completely shocked this happened, will be interesting if more details come out later how they were able to re-hire all those people but it's awesome news for local sports radio

    If that is what happened... That has to be terribly awkward and feel very insecure for the people brought back, right? If they have one foot out the door on you, I would think you would be plotting your own next move with one foot out the door...

    I'd guess that advertiser cancellations has more to do with it than app deletions.

    This is a stunning move. Not surprised that iHeart did not really understand its audience until the audience spoke up.

    The Des Moines iHeart GM coming on the air to apologize to the audience will be the best part.

    I'm sure the station manager was basically told what to do by corporate. If not explicitly, then given a menu of terrible choices to pick from.

    Happy they are coming back and on an FM channel. I haven't listened to sports radio since the days of Deace, Marty/Ken, etc. but I may start now.

    Glad everything turned out ok. On the positive side, all these shows are now more popular than they've ever been thanks to all the controversy.

    I feel like there is a Donald Trump and Comet the Insult Dog meme here somewhere.

    Yeah it definitely would feel weird. We're all disposable at our jobs and most of us are too comfortable to realize that probably. Just put yourself in that scenario and imagine you came to work today and 2 hours after you show up they pull you into a meeting room and notify you that you have been let go effective immediately. Then a few days later you get a call and they said "sorry we realized we made a big mistake, come on back to work next week." First off I've been where I am at long enough I probably would just say no thanks I'll take my severance package and move on but yeah for most people they'd probably take that as a sign that if they pulled the plug on you once who is to say if things don't get better for the company soon I now know where I stand in the pecking order.

    Have to think they’re putting it elsewhere?

    I’ve come to enjoy the Woody Show on the way to work

    In some cases, there is no such thing as bad press.

    Except for the past 4 days.
