One has to ask if 980 KMBZ bowed down to special interest groups aimed and bringing down conservative voices in America. Did "Media Matters'" thugs get advertisers to pull out just as Entercom launched its new News Radio FM station? The incompetence and spinelessness ( most of the local media knows this and openly discusses it) that exists at Entercom makes one speculate about their true motives.
Thanks to XM and streaming audio we are no longer held hostage by local broadcasting and we can hit them where it hurts, their pockets.

Ever since 980 dumped Beck for Rock and Roll chat from 9 - 11am I have been waiting to see proof of these falling ratings that he supposedly has. Well Drudge just released the new Cable Ratings and well.....

Let's Face it dumping Beck was nothing more than 980 pandering to their 2 biggest Beck haters, Shannin and Parks. 980 has a history of ruining radio in this town at the 9am and 2pm (not to mention the other Entercom abortions in KC) time slots and this is just another prime example of it.
Sorry Darla but 980 is officially removed from my presets.

When replacing crappy radio show hosts you do not replace them with even crappier radio show hosts. The program director at 610 Sports has to be on 810's payroll. I only hope that the Royals and Jayhawks get wise and cancel their contracts with this embarrassment of a radio station so that I will never need to go down the dial.
The most embarrassing move has got to be putting the worst sports talk host in the metro (besides Neal Jones) Nick Wright up against Soren Petro. Anyone that has tuned into Wrights attempts at sports talk know what a freaking disaster it is. He is so pathetic that they pulled him off of the Royals post game show.

DA - OUT Grunhard - OUT
Shockingly Neal & Marty will still have jobs.
Entercom will never be able to compete with Union Broadcasting with moves like this. These two were the only ones that even competed (numbers wise) with 810. Screwing up sports radio is nothing new for Entercom, lets look at a nice time line.
1. Put Soren Petro in a no win situation on 980.
2. Lost the broadcasting rights for the Royals.
3. Didn't offer Petro a good enough time slot when the formed 610 which forced him to leave for 810 (where he now has the highest rated radio show in the city).
4. Didn't listen to Whitlock when he complained about Bill Maas's substance abuse problem.
5. Didn't support Whitlock's marketing and promotions even though he was TIED with Kietzman in ratings.
6. Underpaid board ops and producers at the station.
7. Put Neal & Marty in drive time. This move might be the biggest insult to sports fans in this city.
