Remember the old cartoon where a man sits behind the desk and above him is a sign that says “COMPLAINT DEPARTMENT”? Imagine an actual job where you are the complaint department.

Kansas City woke up this morning a little less funny and a little more sporty. This morning at midnight, Funny 102.5 went silent and Kansas City’s third sports talk station began.
