    Good stuff. And good luck to Cowboy. And is it true he’s dating Erin Bajackson?

    Not to get this too off topic. But Nick Wright has greatly improved. 2 years ago I couldn’t listen to him on the radio. Now, I think he does a decent enough job. I imagine when he gets more experience he will do really good radio.

    I am sad to see Cowboy go, but if he is doing something better for him, I respect that.

    Cowboy is a good guy. I knew him from his days in Lawrence and always rooted for him. I hope things go well for him in Jacksonville and I’m glad he got things off his chest before he left because this was a great read.

    “Nick Wright’s the smartest guy in Kansas City radio”? Sadly, he’s probably right. Unfortunately for Wright, intelligence doesn’t always translate into broadcasting excellence.

    Who is this Cowboy you are referring to?

    I take valuable time out of my day to read columns like this because the effort put forth is worthy of my attention. 610 has never put forth that kind of effort. Put simply and plainly – they suck, have always sucked, and likely always will suck – with or without this Cowboy person.

    I did not care for Anderson on the radio but wish him well. That was an interesting read.

    Love him or hate him (and I prefer fingernails on a chalk board to listening to him) Nick Wright has a bright future.

    Good luck Cowboy! Hopefully you learned some valuable lessons in KC. You’ll be much better off in Jacksonville.

    Nice. A slam on KU fans.

    A very interesting read on Cowboy, Greg. And I’ll second on what I hear about KU’s athletic depeartment. Compared to K-State, MU, and other Big 12 programs around the area, Some of my media friends say KU’s is arrogant as hell…from the top, all the way down to Sports Info/Media-Public Relations, whatever the hell they call it now.
    I somewhat enjoy the balls some of these guys have to scratch to get access, much less an answer.

    Thanks for verifying what I’ve said for years. DA was the bomb and it was a HUGE mistake to get rid of him.

    Johnny Dare is the only on-air person worth a fuck in KC. I should know, I use to live there.

    You have to take his comments about Nick Wright with a grain of salt. Nearly everyone on KC radio is a genius compared to Cowboy. He seems like a nice guy, but he’s just not very bright. It’s to his credit that he was ever able to land that type of gig given his ability.

    Dead-on, though, regarding DA. 610 had the guy that could have eventually challenged KK but they ran him off.

    It’s very comforting to know this column is the last time I will ever see Coree Andersin mentioned around here.

    Good interview. Radio is very tough, as with everything in this new style depression we are in…The entertainment biz has taken just as big a hit as everything else, maybe more. So everyone in radio in this town and around the nation go to work with their heads down…makes the job tough and not much fun…yes Dare is the only real star out there in KC at this time. I think Mike Kennedy is pretty safe as ar Shannon and Parks…for most everyone else, its a rocky road.

    Thanks Jimmy D that was interesting. Made me thing of someone locally that we haven’t heard from in a while. Thanks to all that concurred about DA being a quality radio host. Who will ever forget his run ins with Herman.

    Giant corporate radio conglomerations (like Entercom) have done it to themselves. If you’re under 30 it probably would surprise you to hear there was a time when radio, especially rock radio, did not suck. It used to be a law one company could own 7 radio stations at the most. De-regulation came along allowing most radio stations to be owned by 2 companies in America, thus giving us the crap we have now. Worse thing to ever happen to radio. Johnny Dare is probably the best at what he does in the country and I love his show but I wish Entercom and Clear Channel would go the way of Bear-Stearns.

    I am from KC and used to listen to 610 all day from the time i woke up till the end of the afternoon drive. And couldn’t agree more with the column. getting rid of DA/grunhard, and now the dismantling of the evening shows is the worst thing that 610 could have done. I used to stay up late at night in korea just to catch DA’s morning show online. No longer, its not even worth tuning into 610.

    If there is a definition for “Demise of quality radio” in the dictionary, Cory Anderson’s picture should be next to it.

    First, he wasn’t strong or good enough to be a solo host, he was just part of an act. Therefore, he’s not qualified at all to be commenting on Roger Twibell’s talent, period.

    As for Twibell winging it, there’s nothing wrong with it. Because there are two types of host for show dynamics; hosts who aren’t interactive and those who are. Hosts who aren’t interactive, like Limbaugh own their platform. They have to be an expert on everything. Hosts who are interactive are better to be uninformed than informed. Really good guests who break news and information make listeners pay attention and stop dial switching. Callers who inform hosts about things get a good feeling about themselves and their participation on the air instead of being talked down to by a preachy know-it-all.

    Twibell never was a preachy know-it-all. He wanted guests and listeners to be inclusive.

    Mike Murphy is the perfect example of one of the greatest interactive hosts in radio history. He was an expert on nothing (well maybe UFO’s LOL) but had an interest in everything. So he booked and graded guests about topics and how they performed. Great guests got called back. Poor guests never returned. And I don’t think any listener could ever accuse Murphy of talking down to them.

    Amateurs like Anderson think they know more than you and think the world revolves around them. Listeners aren’t stupid and get tired of preachers like him who can never develop a big audience. Anderson can claim KC’s 810/610 combo are dominant but it’s 810 that hauls the mail. And KC isn’t that dominant in sports talk. Single stations in Boston, Detroit and Nashville are top 5 stations across the board. OKC too.

    Anderson better wake up. If he thinks he’ll get involved in some partnership with an NFL team, Anderson will be disappointed when he learns NFL front offices do their due diligence on guys like him and what they did BEFORE they tried to get connected with their team.

    As for Entercom, of course they’re a bottom line company. They’re publicly traded. Or didn’t Anderson know that? Probably not. Doubt he owns their stock. I still do, 12 years after Entercom’s IPO. No where near the shares I once owned, but a few just for nostalgia sake.

    Great piece Greg as always.

    scott simon- if you think Roger Twibell is/was good or entertaining on the radio you need your head examined. The guy was as fun as wallpaper.

    If you think KC isn’t one of the top five sports talk markets, you don’t know radio. Listen to any of the overnight nationally syndicated shows; KC callers account for 5 of every 8 calls. Without the KC market, these hosts would have a lot of dead air.
