TV, Radio, Internet...dishing dirt since 2001
I can't wait for the next Ronnnnnnnnnnnn bunker promo telling us how great the new KGO format is. When they were #6 he said they needed to change, now that they are #16 what does he say? If they try to go for the younger and dumber demographic they will be indistinguishable from KNBR. Perhaps P-Connnnnnn and Ronnnnnnnnn can be paired up? Talk about odd couple.

How come KKSF is not moving up a little faster?
Very weak signal and almost non-existent after sundown.
Considering that, the 1.3 is not bad at all.
In addition to a weak signal, I suspect a good many current and former KGO listeners who miss the talk format aren't aware that Len Tillem the "loyah," Dr. Bill Wattenberg, Gil Gross, and other "San Francisco all-stars" have migrated 100 khz up the AM dial to 910 KKSF. Even so, KKSF has substantially increased its audience since adding the former KGO talk show hosts to its programming line-up.
Terrestrial radio just sucks...period!
I was in Jamba Juice yesterday and there were 4 people who looked late 20's early 30's and they were discussing KGO. One guy mentioned that he hit his the AM/FM button in his car while reaching for the air conconditioning. He said he wasn't really sure what AM was although he remembers his mother listened to it when he was a kid. For fun he ran the dial and landed on KGO and was drawn in. He was telling the group that since he found the all news format he can't stop listening and he was actually thinking about cancelling his satelite radio as he has not listened to it in a month.A young lady in the group chirped up and said "Me too!!" She explained that she had to borrow her grandmother's car and had forgot her IPod so she turned on the radio and it was on KGO. She said "I have not been able to quit listening since that fateful day!" She went on to say that the all news format really fits her busy lifestyle and she actually has not even bothered to look for her IPad.Another thanked them for the tip and said he would look for not only AM radio but specifically All News KGO.So all you naysayers that comment here; you were wrong and Cumulus is right! I have actual proof that their target demo are finding the new KGO.
This is hilarious/ridiculous!
I nominate this for the best intern/schill award of 2012. It is right up there with Mel Baker's best
Geez! Gotta love these "creative" Cumulus trolls! LOLIn the real world, the three twenty-thirty-somethings wouldn't converse aloud. They would have stood facing each other in a small circle and communicated via tweets on their oxymoronic smart-phones, as befits their generation and its near-total lack of interpersonal skills. In their generation, happiness is a warm cell phone and poached bits-o-brain.
Very unusual that the 20-30 somethings had never listened to Giants, 49ers, or Warriors games on AM radio since they didn't know AM existed.What does all-news and a busy lifestyle have to do with each other? And, funny they hadn't happened on KCBS since it's been all news since probably before they were born.
I heard this story of a person who was in their 30's that turned on KGO one evening and wondered where Gene Burns was. He then found a blog online that explained what happened. This person then managed to figure out how to program their radio buttons so that new awful station would never be listened to again.
I was at McDonald's yesterday. I couldn't understand what they were talking about. I only speak English. On a positive note - tomorrow is FRIDAYYYY...!!
"Friday....Friday...gotta get down on Friii-day!!"
OMG!! That's nearly as funny as a old SNL skit. I love the subtle snark of the improbable stories -- totally highlights the ridiculousness of the thinking behind trashing a successful format on the sketchy idea that young people would like repetitive, lame news bits recycled over and over, peppered with Sweet Jack commercials above sat radio, iPod music, IPhone /iPad news and so on.No normal 20year old would give up music radio or their iPad for the lame remnants of KGOne.Actually, no one in their 30s 40s or 50s would either!
I am about to call out a coworker on this one. Yes I work at 900 Front, no i don't like what happened here and yes I am looking for a new job because it sucks here. If I didn't have to pay $300 a month in student loans I would have already left. This was written by JARED HART. I Know it was because I heard him talking to his girlfriend on his phone when I walked into his office. He is out of control trying to run the radio station. Even management and long time employees have had it with him.
