Gene Burns was hired on 960 AM, but he has been ill, possibly with a stroke or something, and they have been subbing in John Rothmann, Gil Gross and some other names from KGO.
In the late evening they have Alan Colmes on who defends the Liberal point of view, but the show is not very interesting because that is all it is, a bit argument. KGO did a fairly good job with its non-rightwing hosts to keep the show from getting bogged down before - now … who knows.
Now, I don't listen to KGO except for Pat Thurston who I used to like is on KGO weekend evenings. Pat can still inject a little reason and calm into most of these discussions which is a welcome change, and what KGO used to do well.
I agree, whatever they did to KGO it is terrible. I won't go near it. I turn mostly back to PBS and even connect with my iPhone using the phone Internet rather than listen to AM anymore. They ruined what used to be a good thing and have succeeded in stifling rational discussion by buying KGO and hacking it to bits.
And there is not more news on KGO as they said, this is pure political dirty tricks by huge companies that use money as a poltical weapon.
