Real reasons: issues with various staff, (think a certain one).
Terrible people skills
Ronn Owens loses--he picked the wrong guy to kiss major ass--(again!) Chaos

UPDATE: 2: 24 PM PT: BAKOS RESIGNS! A staffer: "Good riddance!"
Just learned through a station source that Renee Bakos, the PD, has resigned, effective immediately.
So soon after Bloomquist is out, Bakos resigns. Coincidence? Perhaps, you be the judge. It's common knowledge that both Bloomquist and Bakos were close confidants --how close? uh, let your imagination run wild.
Meanwhile, the station personnel and the entire operation is in complete chaos. If this were to happen at any business, let alone a major-market, 50K-watt radio station, major heads would roll. The inmates are running the asylum --and it's reached crisis proportions. Heavy-duty.
A person with knowledge of the situation tells me the following:
"So here we go again, new management with yet another new set of how we should be doing talk radio. The frustration mounts. Many of us are at the point of not giving a fuck anymore. But we hold on to the desperate hope that we’ll get someone who gets it. We had great hopes for Kevin and the bastard went and died on us. Now we’re in limbo again."
Yes, this is the same radio station that Ronn Owens said would just be peachy after the December, 2011 format change. "We're going to be great!--These are great people." Yeah, Ronn, how's that program going lately? The grand Cumulus experiment has been an utter disaster.
Wait, did I say it already? I need to say it again. Cumulus is the WORST company in the World!
If this isn't proof I don't know what is.
