TV, Radio, Internet...dishing dirt since 2001
KGO 2.1 to 2.4, Rothman effect?
More like the Trump effect. Look who's #1 and #2.
Nope. It'll kill Rich...but Armstrong & Getty are the #6 morning show in San Francisco.
I see the former top radio stations in the bay area KGO, KSFO,KFOG and KSAN are all in the dumper. All four stations are owned by Cumulus Media. Great job Cumulus!
Were KGO to replace that ill-conceived 10 pm John Batchellor Show with live and local John Rothmann, I think they'd quickly move consistently into the top 10. If added to that, they replaced the bizarre-choice-for-a-host Chip Franklin with a more amiable, interesting, and politically astute entertainment, KGO could maybe even move to an occasional top 5.
6:46 ... That would, certainly, be a giant step in the right direction. The would also have to improve on the not-ready-for-prime-time Ethan Bearman, and "The Giggler." These are serious times, and that day part begs for someone who can address something of substance.

11:02, so YOU'RE the guy!
batchelor loves sucking larry kudlow's dick too much!! Move on boys!
6:46 - agree! Such a mystery as to why they don't make those types of changes.....
I like John Batchelor. His show often has good, interesting historical Americana content. He does hour long interviews with authors who have written books about our founding fathers and authors who have written books about other pivotal events in our American history. He is not just another right wing blow hard. I like his show. I inevitably learn something about my Country's history!
Cumulus is in real trouble. They did a reverse split awhile back in order to stay listed on the NASDAQ Global Market System, which brought their per share price above the $1 minimum level. Now, they're back well below the $1 level again. The CEO is asking for sales leads from ALL employees via mass email. They just reported a $500-million loss for all of last year. They're servicing a $2-bilion debt. Vultures are circling.
The Dickheads will burn in Hades for what they wrought on the public airwaves.
