Bruce moving to Entercom's 'The Game' --Not as Bold a Move as You Think









 BRUCE--THE BACK STORY

In reality news that Damon Bruce is leaving KNBR's little sister of the poor and headed to Entercom's "The Game", (95.7 FM) from 3-7 PM is not the news here.


We'll get to that soon.


There's many angles to cover here and we will.


1. KNBR doesn't care that Bruce has expired, (there at least)
2. PD Barrett, (The Game) is probably done.
3. The Game has nothing to lose.
4. Bruce up against a bad signal, Tolbert, plus KNBR's stock portfolio...Giants, 49ers, etc.


5. This move has been on the drawing board for months--long before WomanSportsGate

  1. Can't wait till Bruce moves to another station, outside of the Bay Area.

  2. Damon Bruce has been stealing paychecks for years from KNBR. It's about time Hammer wised up and booted this misogynistic idiot. His opinions were all too often wrong and his attitude towards women is pathetic. I have been writing Hammer for years, advocating his departure... Happy Happy Day!

    1. Is it because he's not a bleeding heart liberal like yourself? You ask for Damon's departure yet you tolerate the garbage that stinks up the airwaves at Noon?

    JOYOUS DAYS!!! Soon to be gone and forgotten. GTFO, D. Bruce.

  4. This is one move that 95.7 has made that is a positive. Damon is better than the rest of 95.7's line-up, cumulatively. The only bigger, and better move, would be to dump JB and give those responsibilities to Bruce as well.

  5. Man, I just started listening to the Rise Guys because with baseball starting up I couldn't take six months of fanboy Brianna Murphy bloviating nonstop about the Giants. Anyway, I thought they were really entertaining. If KNBR was smart they would grab a couple of them to replace the nonexistent Paulie Mac - besides Brianna could use a male role model. As for DBruce, its a great day for all mouth breathing jersey-wearing adults!!! I'll stick with Tommy T, but he could also use a new cohost to take control of the show (Whitey?) - he's much better as the funny sidekick.

    1. I agree. Brian sounds like a girl at times. The Rise Guys had grown on me. What a shame.

  6. The Morning Guys are out too at 95.7, replaced with that awful Townsend and Bucher Show. I'll miss Dibbly. He's the only one I liked.

  7. Where is confirmation that Jason Barrett has finally been fired after 3 years of epic failure?

  8. Couldn't stand him on KNBR, won't listen to him on 95.7. Anyone going up against the Giants broadcast will get crushed anyway

  9. I can't believe they are this stupid at 95.7...didn't like Dibley too much, but overall the Rise Guys was a great show, far better than anything on KNBR. Townshend and Bucher were tolerable at 3pm, mainly because I only listened to bits & pieces. But Rise Guys I listened to entire show...Townsend and Bucher for 4 hours in the morning? No way, will not listen. Terrible move.

  10. The morning rise guys and Dibs were fired along with PD Jason Barrett? And they've brought in Damon Bruce? Sounds like Entercom's version of Lee Hammer is running the show at that obscure FM station that calls itself: "The Bay Area's NEW sound for Sports." By the way, on that topic, the promotion folks should get a clue. 95.7 the game is now in it's 4th year of operation, so they're not exactly new!

    1. Where is the firing of Jason Barrett confirmed? I've seen nothing official. The only thing I've seen is the SPECULATION that Rich listed above.

    2. Jason Barrett has been suspiciously quiet today. His last tweet is from Monday night. In the past when lineup changes have been made on 95.7, Barrett has been the one to announce them.

  11. "Townie" and Bucher are horrible. Bucher doesn't know much sports outside of Bball, and he takes an hour to ask one question. Where does Dibbly end up -- back at KNBR?...

    1. Bucher is the worst radio host in the Bay Area, and I will include Karel.

    2. I may not agree, but it is very funny.

  12. Bucher begs people to listen to his show every Warriors game. Please pretty please listen to my show on 95.7 The Game. He is annoying as all hell.

  13. Congratulations to Damon. Good move for him.
    I would rather listen to him than some syndicated talk show out of the east coast.

    1. The same way people on the East Coast would rather listen to someone local than Damon Bruce on the weekends.

      Bruce is a 6.5-7. That's his ceiling. He has the formula stuff down, but otherwise he's rather uninteresting, for whatever reason.

      I wish him luck because I think KNBR is terrible. I thought when I moved here from the midwest I'd get good sports radio. Just terrible. I look forward to the day the 49ers and Giants are uninteresting and KNBR is forced to make real changes. They'll probably syndicate the whole thing.

  14. I cannot understand how Damon Bruce can land a job on radio anywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  15. He's a blow hard who thinks his own farts don't smell. He thinks he knows more than anyone else in the area about sports, but he doesn't know squat, except for how to insult people.

  16. Now all the 'Game' needs to do to solidify their spot as the worst station on the radio is to hire that "annoying clucking hen" Amy G. from Comcast and give her a show! Can you imagine something that stupid being done? It wouldn't surprise me!

    1. I think that would be great, as it would get her off the Giants telecasts!

  17. Bruce will have a tough time opposite Tolbert. If the FM station wants to hurt KNBR they should put Bruce opposite Radnich.

    1. It does not take much to beat Tolbert these days with all the same old sound bites they play ad naseum.and juvenlie humour from them both. At least a change thats better than Townsend lets see if they change formats or such.

  18. worst move ever. the game is clearly run by idiots. i love the rise guys, they have been dominating murph and mac who suck. bucher at 6 am sounds horrible. love whites/crides me a river/dibs. 95.7 "the titanic", good luck dipshits.

  19. Big Rise Guys fan. This is a sad morning.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Damn. Miss the Rise Guys already. HaberKoff is a big yawn.... Gleason and Kriedler were- sometimes- funny as hell, and though i'm not a big Dibley fan, all three of them are pretty damn good at what they do. They'll find gigs, no doubt, and it's the game's loss

    1. I, too, am bummed about the Rise Guys.

  21. whoever runs 95.7 the game is a goddamn idiot. the rise guys were genius.

    ReplyDelete
  22. The Rise Guys are gone for one simple reason - ratings. If they were getting good ratings, they are still on the air. Fact is, the Rise Guys was the worst rated program on 95.7.

    ReplyDelete
  23. AJ, the morning show is never going to be the best-rated show on a sports station. The best you can do is have a good product for people who fall asleep listening to the game (small g) at night. "Rise Guys" did that. You think their ratings were bad, wait until the ones for B&T roll in.

  24. The rise guys were the best...hope knbr takes them!

  25. I'd rather listen to 15 acts of Italian opera than the rise guys.....
