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. Imagine that your job is to field complaints from the Kansas City Sports Fanbases for the Royals and the Chiefs. The same fanbases who […]
Earlier in the week, a twitter observer noticed this posting on the Entercom website announcing the opening for a new on-air personality.
This, coupled with Nick Wright’s open discussions about his contract negotiations on his show piqued my interest.
So I made a few phone calls to industry insiders that confirmed the following:
Call this a “think piece” or just a “tl;dr” but I think I’ve finally plotted out a gameplan to claim victory in #RadioWars.
However, to first win the war, you must have a clear understanding of history. Kansas City Sports Radio History…
It all started with Don Fortune.
Come on, admit it. Who HASN’T got to New Orleans and gotten in some sort of fight. Right? It seems our two favorite radio stations had a bit of a kerfuffle this weekend with reporters from both stations camped in New Orleans covering the Final Four run of the Kansas Jayhawks.
Recently, little has […]
There’s a new player on the KC Sports Talk landscape and it’s The Danny Parkins show. Wait, I know what you’re thinking. Danny was already on the air, BUT effective March 15, Danny and his new co-host, Carrington Harrison got the call to be big leagues and their show time was […]

But make no mistake, if you are going to make the massive change and go up against Soren Petro’s midday “The […]
It’s no secret that 610 Sports is looking for a way to get ahead of Sports Radio 810. 610 has one key advantage coming up, they are the Flagship of the Royals Radio Network and carry all the games. Last year, this propelled them ahead of 810 in the ratings for the first time […]
You, my friend, are a puzzle.
Here you are. Clearly a fish out of water. Clearly with some talent and clearly with some modest success.
But there’s still something wrong. Still something missing.
Is it the fact that you’re seven feet tall and weigh 82 pounds? No.
Is it the fact that you look like […]

It’s not what it looks like.
You see, I just flipped over for a couple of minutes and forgot it was on. I’m sorry Steven. I’m sorry Nate. I’m sorry Soren. I’m sorry Doug.
