    Sox could move to WGN or WLS next year.

    Is that that show that's on in the evening where they interview semi-literate D backs with softball questions?

    Yeah. The Bears pay for that time because the thirst for Tim Jennings' life story is insatiable in mid-May.

    Best part of this all doe would presumably and hopefully be the end of Rongey. Not that I ever listen, but man...just reading about him pisses me off. Total hack and shill.

    He has this know it all attitude about himself despite having no real reason to act like a pompous ass.

    Dude was just an update guy on The Score before he got that gig and all of a sudden he thinks he's qualified to talk down to everyone about baseball. I know he has to be a Sox shill to some extent but he's just way over the top at times.

    He just has to run every little criticism through his bullshit "the organization/management is right" filter, which is entirely obnoxious when there are completely valid criticisms which are sometimes ok to just acknowledge without making bullshit excuses or deferring to "Guys, every team/manager/player...."

    His inflated ego most definitely comes from the sheer volume of mouthbreathing retards he has to interact with on a daily basis, which is somewhat understandable, but he also becomes one at times with his idiot opinions.

    I don't consume biased media if possible . It's also silly for the team to think that they need to shill out the team to a bunch of diehards who are never going anywhere

    Yeah Rongey's attitude towards the retarded callers doesn't really make sense. Anyone who calls into that show or listens regularly isn't going anywhere. They are the DIE SOX WHITE HARD fan from Tinley that will always be a huge Sox fan. You don't need to shill to those people.

    You don't have to look any further than WSI to see that the SOX target market wants to marry Rongey's approach even though they also love to bitch about the same things they love Rongey for calling out people for bitching about.

    CBS has a one time relocation clause that allows them to move the Cubs to 670 next year, they will almost certainly do that now.

    Yeah, sounding like that was a done deal a year ago. Sox were never coming back to CBS.

    Cumulus has more $$ to blow than the Tribune and is far more desperate to improve their market share.

    The latest Nielsen Audio survey shows WLS in 29th place with a 1.1 percent share and a cumulative weekly audience of 343,600. Revenue declined 27.5 percent last year.

    Cubs on WSCR was inevitable once CBS won those rights. I'm just happy someone bid on the Sox and they weren't relegated to 560.

    Does WLS reach Granger? Wouldn't want to deprive Aris of the full SOX experience.

    If it weren't for Viva hinting at it, I wouldn't have discovered WLS is mostly syndicated right wing trash radio. But since the Sox mostly play night games during the week, this means less Michael Savage and Mark Levin which is a GREAT thing. Will they dump them all together? The two are alternated on a daily basis on my "Liberty" station out here.

    Every once in a while I'll scan through the AM dial and I just :rolleyes2: when I stumble across 890.

    Keep fucking that chicken, guys.

    I wondered if there were such an outlet on the Chicago dial. I think back when I lived there it might have been WIND, but that was back when I thought radio was purely for music and comedy haps.

    Now it's just comedy haps.

    I don't love/hate Farmer & DJ, they are pretty inoffensive and make for an okay "listen in the car for a few moments" team. They are not ideal if you're one of those listen to the radio for the entire game types though, they are pretty dry. With that said, we have bigger fish to fry as far as commentating futures.
