In the old days, liked Trumpy, Collinsworth, Furman on sportstalk, hated Paul Daughterty, never listed to a guy who seemed like it was torchure to host a show.

Enquirer only named Jones. Nothing about Fingers.

Guess I wasn't the only one that didn't like Jones.

It was just Tracy Jones, guess it's the Eddie Show. Brennaman and Jones on baseball was on today, but they can record those ahead of time.

I'm not too disappointed, Jones' act was tired. He was ok on Extra Innings years back but but he and Eddie was just silly talk most of the time. I honestly believe 700 could put anyone on and they'd still be near the top of the ratings.

You are probably right in your last statement

Let's hope this is going to be the start of a major shuffle for WLW...I'd like to see...McConnell moved to the 9AM-noon shift.

Lance McAlister is also good sports talk.

Bad- Any other sports talk. Eddie Fingers and Tracy Jones. 50 year old guys acting like they're 25.
I don't like McAlister at all. Mo Egger is much better.

McCallister is awful and I can't stand Mo Egger's voice. Never liked Jones' dbag persona either. In general most of the station's programming outside of Reds baseball is not good at all. America's Truckin' Network is where it's at

Rocky Boiman is on with Fingers now. He's the worst guy at the whole station imo.

I don't think those were ever reported by local news though.

The quotes I see are all credited back to Bill Cunningham . Jones joked about being traded to another station last week (Wed about 4:30) for a bag of microphones . I remember thinking at that point he was going to "disappear " for awhile. He also said he and Brennamen had reached a disagreement so intense that they would no longer be doing their bit together.

Did see a few reports online now,.

Always like Jones..........from way back during his extra innings days.
He is such an act and gets people riled up.

Sad to hear him go.

Tracy jones is a jerk. He guessed my weight at 250!!! First off I am guy and he thought I was a woman. He said "2.5 bills?" Like I didn't know what that meant! I have to admit I do have a kind of womanly voice.....my name doesn't help either. But boy was he surprised when I told him I was guy!

Why am I thinking of a Seinfeld episode???

Look, Tracy had his place at WLW, he had his schitck and for me it was getting old. Like Willie, you could believe about half of what he said, but that was part of his gig. I don't think WLW can claim ratings as rationale though, because they can put anyone on and be the top rated show in that time slot.

WLW's biggest competition pre-recorded music, sirus radio, Wayz, and they just play so, so many commercials that they have little content on, but that's what pays the bills.

WLW authorities are starting to come around...popular morning show host Mike McConnell, since coming back to Cincy about 5 years ago, taking the early morning shift vacated by the retiring Jim Scott, has gone to a straight talk format for the last hour of his show, between 8-9AM. It's a start, McConnell should be moved to his old 9-12 slot, either switching or replacing Scott Sloan. My other thought is Cunningham has to retire someday and that may open a slot for McConnell. The station should just make the programming change because McConnell's ratings would be better than either Sloan or Cunningham's time slots, but he doesn't want to rock the boat.

Anyway, with that said, the reason McConnnell is good is because he calls out the ignorant when they may dumb statements. The earth nuts have been at it again, pushing to ban plastic drink straws as they say they are unnecessary and are clogging up the waterways. Well, Mike called them out on it as their claimed "statistics" really don't jive with reality. If the number of straws were dumped into the waterways as they claim, we could go down to the local river routinely and see straws just floating by.

I used to listen to Art Bell and his Coast to Coast AM program in the wee
hours of the morning if I was driving South on 71 from NEO. I could pick AM 700
North of Mansfield (Crystal clear).

W6OBB (Art Bell) signed off (QRT) for good April 13th of this year.

Radio is ever changing...Rock's a nice addition a young conservative. Sloanie's act is tired, I can take Willie in small doses. McConnell is the star of the station, but is miscast doing traffic and weather on the 10's. He's got a good, common sense approach to things and really isn't right or left, just right most of the time.

Get rid of Chick Ludwig, limit Mike in Fairfield to one call a year, and find a good sports talk host, with the long history in this city there has to be someone out there with passion/fire/knowledge
