    Pretty vanilla move in my opinion. I guess now I’ll just change the station at a different time of day? Too bad 610 didn’t try to make a bigger splash here. I think a lot of people are dying for somebody who can challenge KK but this is not the answer…at all.

    So, who fills Wright’s morning spot? I vote for Klingler. I agree iwth your assessment of him. Hell, I’m liking him as a sidekick more than I like Fescoe as a headliner.

    I always find it kind of weird when Wright addresses the competition and claims some sort of ongoing battle. While at the same time, 810 treats them as nothing more than a nuissance. While both approaches are disingenuous to a point, at least the second carries with it a little dignity.

    I’ve said it here before … I wish Klingler had a bigger role.

    Regarding Fescoe, I can’t believe I’m saying this but is it too late to bring back Twibell?

    In order not to alienate future listeners, Nick could go to Olathe and do a live remote from the Kansas School for the Deaf.

    Maybe Conrad Dobbler could take a bite out of KK’s ratings.

    Do you have a good day job Greg? I’m asking out of ignorance, by the way. Not trying to fluff you or anything (haha but nobody on here ever does do they?) but I have thoroughly enjoyed OTC since I started reading it a few months ago. Why don’t you throw your hat in the ring at 610? Again, I’m completely unaware if bridges are burned or whatever but if you could translate your wit on here to the radio, I’d listen. Okay, come and get me Jojo.

    I agree Stevo. I would listen to Greg over anybody at KCSP. I know he would go after KK in the 2-6 slot.

    So what happened to the guy who has the 2-6 gig now?

    Not since Traci Lords entered the porn business at age 16 will someones ass be so thoroughly pounded as Nick Wrights will be. If KK is the new Don Fortune Nick is zero squared to the ninth power times twelve over two. This is the equivalent of making Charles Manson the head of surgery at Johns Hopkins.

    I’d rather rip my eyeballs out than listen to Keitzman. He’s such a douchebag

    It’s going to be very tough for Wright to fly solo. Although KK is the star, he has plenty of help on his show, and Wright will need the same. I’m curious as to who 610 will find to be a sustaining part of Wright’s crew.

    If Nick Wright is Traci Lords, does that make Kietzman Johnny “The Wad” Holmes?

    Jojo’s take on this radio thing….

    1. Sports talk is getting old. If you listen to
    the advertisers there are few new ones. In other
    words no new cash coming in. After the ncaa
    tourney and that all 3 schools in the area made
    it theres now little to talk about. Listen to
    kkk beg for callers. The action is old. So
    now for the next few weeks they try to gin up
    the machine and talk about royals and the
    draft. BFD. Then listen to the callers calling
    in. Are those the type of people advertisers
    are looking for? I’ll get to that later.
    2. Money: whb selling spots for about $90…
    610 is going for $35…that tells you where the
    race is. But 610 is out to break even possibly
    make a little money. It costs almost nothing to
    run unlike whb which has all stars on the air…
    all star people calling in and in studio so whb
    does have a big nut to crack. Plus they have to
    pay off their note for buying the station.
    3. Sports talk in this town is dull. Theres
    really nothing you can’t get on espn nationally
    and locally who is caring bout kk’s b.s. about
    every little theft at a college. Noone.
    The wild card is this. If the royals get hot
    and if they really come out of the gate fast
    and stay competitive for the seaons (please
    god) then 610 explodes. Remember…when people
    listen to a game at night the first thing on the
    radio in the morning is 610. Huge…ask the
    card station in st. louis.
    So the fact is that whb needs cash to keep
    running…610 is just a hnger on because kmbz
    will have so much money rolling in between now
    and novermber due to the new supreme court
    rulling on political advertsing…the rock cong continues to make huge bucks…kudl is coming
    on and essentially 610 is a way to carvbe out a
    niche without a big investment and big overhead.
    A sure bet (if you are a bettor) is to buy some
    entercom stock. It was under $1.00…recentlyu
    $11…and its going upi to probably $17-$18…
    so the sports talk world will do well as the
    economy improves and people have money to spend
    and advertisers come out of their slump.
    Stevo…some of hall’sstuff is brilliant. I
    do enjoy commenting and educating some of the
    lesser educated readers about sports and life.
    Hall would be huge on the radio…and one thing
    he does tell US he has…IS A FACE FOR RADIO.
    Happy Easter to all…and stay away from blue
    colored easter eggs.

    Putting Nick Wright in the 610 afternoon slot is like changing your dog’s food from Alpo to Strongheart.

    The only semi-interesting thing to watch is what will fall first, 610’s afternoon ratings or interest in Greg’s columns if he keeps writing about Wright and 610.

    Classic example that anything is possible in America. Nick Wright has his dream job after years of sucking the weenie, working hard, begging and pleading for it. He won’t keep it very long, but better to have banged Uma Thurman once then not to have banged her at all. This is your David and Goliath moment Nick. Put up or you’ll always be remembered as KK’s other little bitch from Syracuse

    also donkeypunch…theres some facts in there..
    some real live information in my comment…
    some financial stats…some educational information…something that people can maybe
    use when they talk about the situation..
    but dumbasses like you would rather qoute and
    find misspellings and grammar mistakes and not
    focus on important intelligent information that
    analizes the situation and not some freaking
    ditch digger saying that they want to
    rip some guy they’ve never met eyeballs out…
    wow…you dumb shit..read…think instead of
    trying to act like my 5th grade english teacher.

    Yes Hall has a full time day job. Has he said how he did in the race Saturday? Greg’s tenure in radio was very humor related. Kind of irreverent. Not sure how it would go over with heavy sports listeners. I would think he would need a side kick. Greg knows how unstable media is right now and he has a great job. So my guess is other then a weekend thing he would have no interest in radio.

    Uncle Dick
    610 just offered an evening show to Greg and he has asked me to be his co-host.

    Hall n’Dick will feature guest contributors, featuring Glazer’s take on new strippers in town,
    dimebag’s quest to become a K2 distributor, Rick on KC’s best dressing rooms to take a dump in,
    porn reviews from ManDshagger, all things Raytown from smartman, and a traveling correspondent feature entitled “Where’s jojo?, detailing his search for the English language, decent bud, truth, and the American way.

    The only thing that would save 610 is Whitlock. He’s a name that would get people to listen. His show on 610 and 810 was good. I think they should of got him in stead of quitting and promoted Wright.

    Wright is a loser. He was upset that WHB didn’t offer him a job. That’s because he wasn’t good enough for a job.

    He’ll be gone after Chiefs season is over.

    Jojo is an enigma! One second he’s in a profanity-laced tirade against all things crimson and blue and the next he’s giving us well-placed financial analysis.
