Great show from Adam and Joe today.

Coaching searches are the best.

Their show has been good the last few days. I had quit listening to them because most of the time I feel like I am listening to liberal NPR but when they actually stick to sports they can be entertaining.

Lauren Brownlow is impossible to listen to these days.

I didn't mind her at first when she was only around for a little input but now that 99.9 has her on the show a lot, she's really become quite uninteresting.

I remember he talked so much shit about Charles Johnson that he eventually got scared to go to the locker room because a bunch of players wanted to kick his ass. QCB used to air him out during Primetime.

So I've tried listening to David Glenn again a several times in the last weeks, and I really cannot stand him. He'll talk for 10 minutes straight, and say about 30 seconds worth of information. I don't mind Mike and Mike, and I actually like Adam and Joe (in small doses), but I find David Glenn intolerable. (cool story)

Ovies will tweet about radio programing every now and then. He had a couple tweets last week talking about the black hole that is the David Glenn time slot (in all markets, not just here). Basically, no matter who you put in that time slot, a radio station is not going to attract listeners. It's more just a matter of not losing money. So DG is basically the cheapest piece of garbage they could get.

"Coming up after the break we sit down with Coach K and talk the blue devil's young team and expectations for the 2017-2018 season, but right now we are running down my TOP FIVE golf movies with Bill Murray. Coming in at number 5, one of my favorites, one some of you younger listeners will probably have to ask your parents about, because I grew up in the generation of the sony walkman. Ask your parents about that one as well. Here's #5, it's a classic, one you'll be surprised to see this far down the list but save your hate mail. Coach K probably loves this one, so maybe I'll discuss it with him, so stay tuned at the top of the hour to see what coach K has to say about my number 5 pick in the rundown as well as your questions and maybe even a few suggestions for your own top 5. My pick as well as the rest of my top five coming up after a few words from the fine folks at...."

Russillo comes on at 1:00 on XM (not sure if his show is on regular FM here). So since I have satellite I get all 3 hours of lebatard and miss all of DG. That alone is worth the $100 it costs a year.

does anyone actually listen to and enjoy the Sports Shop? It's pretty terrible

LOL, apparently I made the same post in this thread June of last year. I just cant believe this show still exists.

also, I was on the road today during the DG Show. I turned it on at around 1:40 and it was a commercial break. I flipped over to Colin Cowherd for a couple minutes (literally like 5 or 6 minutes), went back to the DG Show and it was still in a commercial break until 2pm. I'm assuming he came back for a couple minutes to ramble about what would be on "after the break", but seriously? Twenty minutes of essentially nothing but commercials is pretty unacceptable.

DG literally just repeats himself over and over and over again. He makes one declarative statement and just restates it for like 8 minutes straight until he finally moves on to the next statement

Why I stopped listening to Mike and Mike years ago. They had I think a 4-hour show. Remove the commercials, fluff, and sponsored soundbites and I swear it seems they had less than an hour's worth of material.

i've caught a few things adam and joe say/reference that seem like a shot at DG. whenever adam had his 30th anniversary show or whatever it was a month or so ago, they were doing a "roast" of adam. and there were a handful of references picking on DG.

I can't stand DG, he blocked me on twitter awhile back.

I love being in Raleigh when I am in my car because I can listen to 99.3 or 95.7 but as soon as I get out of the city limits those stations are gone.

I used to like Ovies and Gold but now I really can't listen anymore, it's obvious they don't get along as well as they used to and Ovies tries to be way too pompous. And Brownlow, she's unbearable.

I much prefer when I'm in the truck and can listen to XM.
ESPN's lineup has gotten REALLY bad. Russillo was my guy, now all I have left is Lebatard

Ovies is definitely a know-it-all...does the "let me tell why you're wrong/i'm right" thing a lot and it's condescending. i still generally like their show. and i used to like Brownlow more but she's gotten less enjoyable recently, imo. she's become more like Ovies, i think.

I can barely stomach sports radio anymore. The on-air talent in Charlotte has gone way down, and it's the same idiot callers ringing every show and saying the same thing. No thanks.

Yeah call ins are not enjoyable.

I feel like twitter, for me, takes away from my desire to listen to sports radio. Like, during a coaching search or after a big win I can get my dose of “what’s the local media take on this” from twitter much quicker and more accessibly than sports radio. It’s obviously not the same and the fact that I have a 5 minute commute to work contributes to me listening less and less.

i don't think i agree. They made a change in on-air talent last year that has made the station a lot more focused. It used to be that the afternoon drive show was basically commercials and stale comedy bits for the last two hours. They've started the drive-time an hour earlier and have made an effort to have more interviews throughout the show. The co-hosts are a little more reigned in as well. I think those are all good things. Honestly, QCB and the Whiner Line were the worst things going for WFNZ.

Also, the Gerry-V show on 730am is a great listen. highly recommend.

I'll switch over to Gerry V sometimes since it's better than commercials, but I got my fill of him back when he did Hornets radio post game. I'm not a fan of him having his own multi-hour show.

I personally can't stand Kroeger and think he's a massive tool so I never turn on primetime. Then Frank Garcia trying to rub two brain cells together before that makes me cringe. Sometimes I'll flip on Mac and Boney but like you guys said they feed off of call-ins that can be unbearable for the most part.

I think Kroeger is ok, just a little bland sometimes. He's humble, honest, and well-spoken, which are things that can't be said for 75% of sports radio people. You can tell he's a big fan of the Panthers and Hornets, though his knowledge only seems surface-deep a lot of times.

One thing he does that annoys me is the way he asks questions to guests. He'll take 30 seconds to get out a question when it should have taken 5 seconds.

David Glenn is still, by far, the most knowledgeable local guy. Just sucks he's unbearable to listen to more than 10 minutes at a time.

this is so true.



I really liked WFNZ's revamped approach, especially in the afternoons. They got rid of the comic sidekicks and went back to a sports first approach. But I think the revolving door of co-hosts, most who didn't know anything outside of football, really hurt. But that's true about Frank Garcia as well. But i think he and Bailey give the station their straight man and comedy foil that they were lacking with Kroeger. As much as I liked Kyle Bailey when he joined the station last year i've been put off by him a lot lately. He can be a huge thin skinned tool on Twitter.
