KABC is down for the count but will switch to Sports with the CBS/Cumulus syndie deal and KLOS will start to drop with the end of Mark & Brian. Cumulus is a money player, not broadcasters, It might work in Market #50, but NOT in # 2, 5, 10 etc.

"I can't listen to WJR anymore either. They are all morons at Cumulus. So glad I don't work for them anymore!"

Heartbreaking to those of us who worked there when it was such a class act. J.P. must be spinning in his grave.

Everyone here in Dallas forcasted Cumulus' drop in ratings and revenue when they canned vernerable talk fixture Mark Davis. Davis had been on Dallas' WBAP for 18 years and did guest spots on Rush. To get rid of an articulate engaging figure like Mark Davis to save a couple dollars on his salary was a classic slip up. And NOW reports loss of revenue from that station? Duh!

Ha ha ha! Dickey's looking to blow out more of his local talk hosts for cheap syndicated programming. Great! That's just what listeners in big markets want to hear - more generic, syndicated programming. What a joke. Cumulus has ruined KGO and to a lesser extent, it's little sister KSFO and he can't even look in the mirror and see that his policies are to blame for the stations tanking. Talk about being a delusional cheap-skate!!!

WBAP is in Dallas, and KGO in San Francisco.
