    This station fired its one live morning host this morning after his show and then turned into a classic hip hop station.

    Now I feel like I'm playing GTA: San Andreses while I'm driving around.

    I've always liked Farmer. I just like his voice. DJ has always been an effete loser.

    We saw Farmer and DJ in Minnesota; Farmer is in bad shape. Walks all hunched over and with a limp. I almost slipped and called DJ Chris Singleton.

    Chris Singleton looks kinda like that annoying prancing music director Jon Batiste on Colbert's show. :spiderdance:

    http://www.robertfeder.com/2018/01/19/robservations-cumulus-opts-white-sox-bulls-101-wkqx-loop/

    Struggling to emerge from bankruptcy, Cumulus Media announced plans Thursday to drop its money-losing multiyear contracts to broadcast White Sox baseball and Bulls basketball on news/talk WLS AM 890. The company also moved to cancel its deal with Merlin Media to acquire alternative rock WKQX FM 101.1 and classic rock WLUP FM 97.9. Cumulus has been operating the two stations since 2014 under a local marketing agreement. “As part of our operational turnaround, we have been focused on taking proactive steps to address unprofitable areas of our business,” Mary Berner, president and chief executive officer of Cumulus Media, said in a statement. “We are taking this action because the economic terms of these legacy contracts guarantee that we lose money and, as such, continuing them in their current form is not in Cumulus’s best interests.” U.S. Bankruptcy Court is scheduled to rule February 1 on the company’s plan to reject the contracts. It’s not known where the White Sox and Bulls will go or who will operate 101 WKQX and The Loop after Cumulus.

    I assume they had to buyout the Sox and Bulls to get out of the contract

    Sox and/or Bulls make sense for either WGN radio or 1000

    I assume the court will rule on that.

    And I don't think WGN could handle the Hawks and Bulls at the same time.

    Time to give Hawk his own right-wing show on 890 to fill in the gap.

    Yeah that's true. Not much other places to go to. I doubt 670 goes after Bulls and they obviously can't do Sox with Cubs.

    Replace who? I think the station is happy with Spiegs and Parkins and Bernstein and Goff. Holmes probably becomes the go to sub anytime those guys are out. His evening show will be broadcast only like 100 days out of the year now. What is 670's plan when Bulls and Sox conflict?

    They are kind of meh, don't really offer much deep sports thought. It's like a better version of Mully and Hanley.

    The Bulls will get put on another Entercom frequency when there's a conflict unless it's a playoff game. Hell, maybe even then. I have to think the people at The Score had to talk to the Cubs before doing that deal.

    What's the difference who broadcasts them? It's still Farmer and DJ. :yawn:

    Nothing in the actual game. But depending on what station, you have more reach.

    I guess, who still listens to the radio though? I guess I do sometimes when we're outside on the front lawn and the SOX are playing

    I didn't listen much when the team sucked. But in seasons like 2012 when they were in the playoff chase, I'd tune in on the drive from work. Or the hot start in 2016 when I thought they had something there.

    He's not good. But I wonder what the hang up is with him and WGN. I was right that the Sox really didn't have much options. If ESPN 1000 isn't interested they have no leverage.
