Mancow, Lawyer Call Out KMBZ 980 AM Host Darla Jaye

No more Mr. Nicey Nice…

Kansas City radio export Erich Mancow Muller has taken off the gloves and retained an attorney to get KMBZ 980 AM evening host Darla Jaye’s full and undivided attention.

“I want her to admit that she was lying about Jerry Agar,” Mancow says. “Agar came to me and was really, really hateful to me in the hall and I said, ‘What’s your problem?’ And he said, ‘Well, you took my job.’ I didn’t take his job, they got rid of him because he wasn’t any good. He was a bore and he wasn’t getting through to Chicago.”

Mancow replaced Agar – who left KMBZ’s afternoon drive slot here a couple years back for WLS in Chicago – last October.

Here’s how the Jaye bird fits in to this soap opera…

When I reported the Cow’s ascension on WLS, Chicago last fall Jaye hammered me with the following email:

    I’m sure one day the citizens of Iraq and Afghanistan will thank us for bringing them the freedom and liberty to be able to retain lawyers when they get “slimed”. Seems to me they’ve got a better system in place now. Somebody “slimes” you you just blow up their house or car or bust a few .223 rounds in their kneecap, ass or head. Guess now that Mancow has steady income he can piss away a few grand on a barrister to fire off a letter. Funny that ex-cop / wife killer Drew Peterson chose to call in to Mancow’s show from jail and jokingly suggest a “Conjugal visit with Drew” contest. Guess birds of a feather do flock together. Seems Mancow learned quite a bit from his mentor, Randy Miller.

    Legal representation is the ULTIMATE status symbol isn’t it? Wonder if Mancow’s lawyer is a DUI and speeding ticket guy or a partner at Winston & Strawn?

    I love media people.
    when other media says things that are untrue, they demand retractions and hire lawyers.
    when those of us who are in the public eye have things said about us that are untrue, media screams freedom of the press.

    what a bunch of pussies.

    My guess is that Mancow approached WLS with a proposal to do the show and sweetened the deal with a few advertisers in his pocket that would take their ad business to the radio station. WLS pays Mancow for his show and the station does business with the “new” advertisers. Did he “buy” the slot on WLS? In a sense…especially if the new companies had not planned to advertise at WLS previously….yes.

    Darla is such a hack. I almost spit water out of my nose when I read her email to Hearne… “Hey H., if you had done some actual research or investigating… it would have been easy to find out the TRUTH” — this from a woman who is ready to slime anyone she disagrees with at the drop of a hat and who couldn’t navigate LexisNexis if her life depended on it.

    Truth and facts: Two things Darla Jaye never allows to get in the way of an ignorant rant.

    Although I gotta admit, when I find myself in the car during her show and absolutely nothing else is on, she can be entertaining… in a she-is-Rush-and-Hannity’s-retarded-baby sort of way.

    Darla wouldn’t know the truth if you put it in a jug and waterboarded her with it. And try challenging her. If you call with an opposing opinion, she won’t put you on the air. If you email her she doesn’t respond.

    I am no fan of Mancow, but I applaud him for this.

    I was a regular listener of WLS until recently. While I wasn’t the biggest fan of Jerry Agar’s WLS show, it was world’s better than Mancow’s show. Mancow comes across as someone with a severe case of ADD. He is way too hyper, jumps to conclusions without much merits and talks over his guests.

    Agar has been doing weekend shifts on WGN, as well as doing fill-in work for their previously vacant 9 a.m. to noon M-F show for the last three weeks… while continuing his weekend shows.

    Compared to many of the other news/talk hosts in Chicago, Jerry Agar would be near the top of my list as being among the best. Aside from the Mancow thing, he seemed to be well liked by co-workers, as well.

    Also, Mancow doesn’t solo host his show on WLS. He co-hosts it with Pat Cassidy who for years co-hosted a number #2/#1 rated morning drive show so….Mancow needs to stop inflating his ego.

    Darla Jaye is just a plain, bad host. I’ve never heard such a whining shrew on air in my life. And she doesn’t foster real discussion or is engaging in any way like Mike Shanin is. Shanin will DISCUSS an issue. OF course, one look at Darla Jaye, and you KNOW why she’s in radio, and not TV. The difference between Shanin and Jaye are that Shanin is interested in a spirited, topical dicussion and exploration of the issues, while Jaye is simply interested in being RIGHT. I called her on her criticizm of Katie Horner and her weather coverage one day. She said in her show blog that day that she understood if programming was interrupted if a tornado was moving through a populated area, but she didn’t know WHY they were interrupting programming for tornado warnings in Pettis county. This bitch is in broadcasting, and she isn’t aware that a TV station’s broadcast radius is 75 miles? And POPULATED AREA? I’m assuming she either thinks Kansas City TV stations have areas of wilderness within their vieweing areas, or us farmers out here in rural areas that depend on TV from an ANTENNA to get our weather warnings don’t matter. I suppose our life and property don’t mean as much to her. It’s surprising she’d feel that way, since we grow the food she shovels into her gullet every day, resulting in her size 20 ASS.
