TV, Radio, Internet...dishing dirt since 2001
Ah, Rich, come on... Can you give us initials or a hint? It cannot be any worse than today's earlier events...or could it?
I found the initials HW encrypted in Rich's blog which only means that Henry Wofford is hosting his own talk show on KGO.
Just ask the poor folks of San Diego...Chip Franklin is never just "gone".Filling your ears full of cement is the ONLY way to make the awful sounds end.
Chip is a grinder. His website says so.
Franklin was an asshole and he probably will be missed by no one.
More often than not I enjoyed listening to Chip. I will miss him and might see where he lands in the future to listen again. Good luck Chip!
Chip wasn't too bad. His was about the only one I liked there. Cumulus are a bunch of cretins on their last legs.
I liked Chip! Who is going to take his place. Sarah Palin?
Only dim light that happened today...but sure his dang ads will go on and on and on and on and on...
Chip Franklin in constant contact with programming genius and serial philanderer Randall Bloomquist.Maybe Chip will announce he's "leaving" and take a female underling withe him.
Says a lot about Cumulus that they hired Randall Bloomquist when his philandering ways and sheer incompetence were a matter of record. Bloomquist couldn't get a job as a radio station janitor for six years and then they put him charge of their entire talk division. If he hadn't gotten caught with his pants down, literally, at KGO, Bloomquist would still be running the company the rest of the way in the ground.
KGO has been the victim of poor decision for years now. Of course listenership dropped off. Other than Ronn, you got rid if all the great hosts with new ones not worth listening to. Then in the early morning, they started playing recordings of Ronn's show to fill dead time. When I heard that I stopped listening. How sad to lose one of the great Bay Area stations to suicide.
That was not a suicide...It was murder.
Good God not Gil Gross...
It won't be Gil Gross because Cumulus isn't smart enough to have him. I'm pretty sure they are going after the younger and/or more right wing listener (if they exist in that combination). Gil has a very interesting show with great interviews and he is very informed and explains what is happening in our world in a very thorough way. He is much better on 910 than he was on 810.
Suicide is the perfect word to describe what happened to KGO Radio. All of Cumulus's decisions have proven to be failures.
Chip Franklin was a Neanderthal that was too lazy to do his own research.
pretty neat that what many predicted when kgo went to all talk has come true.very sad that thanks to the telecommunications act, terrestrial radio is basically deadeven sadder that cumulus killed two of the progenitors of talk radio...kgo and kabcits a sad dayand i just want to share one thingjohn rothman used to be my neighbor when i was a kidhe frequently allowed myself, bro and sis to peruse his massive library (he still keeps the apt as his office/library)when he made it on air, my mom never missed any of his showsmy mom passed about a month ago, and i know that one of her happiest moments of the past few months, was listening to john when he did a fill inwhen kgo was talk...she never missed a show....that's loyalty...and it doesnt exist anymorerip kgo
Armstrong and Getty - those Sacatomato idiots. Its all over the news here.
I don't think Chip is a goner. His voice is all over that inspirational garbage that's running on KGO right now.Unless they made him go do the Q&A, edit it...then fire him. L O friggin L
Chip is a breath of fresh air at KGO. I hope he stays, or I will follow him elsewhere
I saw Chip and his wife having lunch at Harris Ranch on Highway 5 heading south back to San Diego in a U Haul. He was on his phone yelling at- Rich Uncles -,"what do you mean I can't get my money back".
