See, even as his colleagues were in tears packing up their belongings and being led out of the Cumulus-SF Media Building, Ronnnn was joking; both on and off the air; Ronn joked about how an associate told him once, "you'll probably die while on the microphone." Ronnnnnn laughed at that. Said it was probably true. See Ronnnnn is a radio mercenary --hell, give him a mike and a few bucks, hell show up. Who cares about stinking call letters. Lowenstein is about Lowenstein.
Ha Ha Ronnnnn.
See, lots of people asked me, why is Ronnnnnn still even working? He sounds like shit now and his ratings are terrible. So, how does he help KSFO when he sounds like an old man.
Well, for starters, Ronnnn truly doesn't know what to do outside of radio and so, there was KSFO. Cumulus, A., feels sorry for Ronn and given his health status, doesn't want to fire him because they're afraid of legal repercussions and also weary of having to cut him a major check, (like someone else a few years ago); So, ratings-challenged Ronn will be sent to KSFO to do a three-hour splurge --maybe they believe Ronnn and his terrible ratings will be helped by a strong lead-in from Michael Savage who has great ratings from Noon-3, but back to the basics.
I don't know what the hell Cumulus is trying to accomplish with KGO. They have permanently wrecked it. Furthermore, I don't think they know either. In five years they have KILLED a legacy station, TWICE! They RUINED a LEGACY station, TWICE! Most of their listeners moved on from KGO and Thursday's latest charade was only proof positive that Cumulus doesn't know how to run a radio station, much less how to maintain any degree of competency --I don't care how many "Armstrong and Getty's" you bring to the table.
*FRANKLY, KGO is in a perpetual no-mans-land; truly Neanderthal status; it's been beaten and bruised and hit so many times; its brand forever altered by a bunch of outsiders who do not RESPECT its sacred call letters; have no regard for its many loyal listeners who long abandoned it because the ill-conceived Atlanta corporate raiders RUINED it and buried it into the ground.
IT IS DEAD NOW.
*It's too early in the game to talk about and speculate about what will be the new line-up at KGO, and KSFO.
KFOG? Really, tragically, does anyone care about KFOG anymore? The last time KFOG was relevant was about when Bill Clinton was president.
Sorry, but I'm right.
