B100 in South Bend fucks up BIG TIME

Post by MWmetalhead » Sat Sep 28, 2019 8:23 am

Not sure if their PD (Jesse Garcia) or someone higher up made this decision, but firing your popular morning show co-host because - god forbid - he attended his own daughter's wedding instead of the radio station's annual concert is nothing short of reprehensible!!!

To everyone at Federated Media in South Bend - GO FUCK YOURSELVES.

If I ran WYET, I'd be flipping that signal to Country in a heartbeat.

Just appalling! I had listened to B100 a good bit in the past. Oh and I LOVE your signature!

Couldn't agree more. I read he offered to show up at the event late and they just told him to forget it, that he was fired.

Lots of pissed-off listeners on that FB page, and I'm not surprised. Country music listeners have long placed much emphasis on the importance of family. Hopefully if a country competitor does launch, it'll grab Jim Mackey for mornings.

THAT will teach employees to have personal lives! How DARE he?

I really hope there isn't more to this story. I feel for the guy because my job is the same way. Don't have a family or make any plans lest you get your ass chewed into or risk losing tour job...

That is such bullshit. I hope he sues their asses for wrongful termination. Employees aren't robots, no matter what upper management thinks.

I think seeing your child get married is far more important than some stupid station event, but what the hell would I know...

Sounds like a perfectly Republican thing to do. Why would country listeners be upset?

Meanwhile, B100's side of the story, which was posted on Facebook, disappeared from Facebook.

Yet, family values were mentioned as a reason he should have been allowed to spend the weekend away from work.

To be realistic, radio is largely operated by fools these days. Most oil change places are run better.

I said nothing about politics. You were the one who took my words and made them political, as if love of family (and I did not use the term "family values", which implies conservatism; those words were yours) were the exclusive domain of the GOP. All I said was that country listeners in general tend to be more family-oriented. I made nothing in the way of political generalizations. Unless you believe liberals, LGBTQ people+ etc. can't be family-oriented. For what it's worth, plenty of politically liberal and LGBTQ+ people enjoy country music as well. (The real stuff as well as the wannabe pop played on stations like B100.)

FedMed's done really stupid stuff in the past (see their botching of WOWO under Gregg Henson) but this is a new one, even for them.

TC Talks always does that. He’s a troll.

I don’t know why a competitor hasn’t snatched him up immediately. Switch to country, hire Mackey, and build around him. The advertisers will follow.

it's my understanding this was not an easy guy to work with and mgt. was looking for an opportunity to make a change. Just seems like it was handled a tad "hamhandedly"
