WSGW programming changes

Post by iloveblackpeople » Thu Jun 20, 2019 7:18 am

Listen to the Mrs. off the daily schedule. Will be podcast only. Glenn Beck off the air. Fox Sports gone from overnights on 100.5.

I didn't go back and read the article again but I believe there's going to be a second hour of the Art Lewis show, Focus and Terry Henne's Farm Show all simulcast on both 790 and 100.5 leading into Limbaugh at noon. Previously all three of those shows were only on 790.

The ghost of Fred Krell will rise up and restore order, with regard to "Listen to the Mrs."

To understand the reference, you would have to be old enough to remember the host of LOTM in the 70s, probably the 80s too. I recall as a kid, listening to him parrot the recipes that ladies would offer him and thinking "who cares?" It was clearly not programming targeted to my demo.

Based on the tone of the article, it sounds like getting rid of Glen Beck wasn't even a close call - he appears to have been the first to get the axe.

Not sure I understand the logic of ditching Fox Sports overnight on 100.5 and replacing it with Coast-to-Coast since Coast-to-Coast is already broadcast on 790. Why simulcast one show on two different stations with similar coverage areas rather than two separate shows?
