|JT the Brick /Fox Sports Radio|
The current occupants on The Game from 10-12 are Haberman and Middlekauf , whose ratings continue to plummet and show no sign of moving up despite mounds of promotion and PR by the station, which just stole the Warriors from KNBR and with this move, acquire a major sports-talk radio figure, a proven talent who would certainly move the needle.
"The Brick" is based in Las Vegas but could do his show in SF via a remote set-up --very common in broadcasting.
For his part, JT, (real name: John Tournour) is downplaying the rumor telling me directly he hasn't "heard anything from "The Game" but he also didn't pooh-pooh it either." San Francisco is a great market and anybody would love to do a local show there--who wouldn't?"
We'll wait and see.
*Meanwhile, on KGO Radio, the abysmal "Armstrong and Getty" Show --mired in Branson, Missouri humor and out-of-date, out-of-style performance, isn't performing. The syndicated snot-noses are so unpopular they're actually drawing less-than-half the numbers from a year ago when KGO was all-news.

|John Bristow on KCBS|
I've had issues with Bristow over the years making fun of his notorious image as "Mr. Pipes" (the boom DJ voice and overly-exaggerated isms) but he's sounds good enough to be on KCBS and wish him well.
