Tuesday Word on Street; Industry Buzz: 'One More' Major KNBR Tonsil on Hit List; Let the Guessing Game Begin

Image result for KNBR THE KNBR/CUMULUS CLEANSE has one, possibly two, more would-be victims on its hit list ...

After Ray Woodson (who was modestly paid) and a few morsels (Ted Ramey, OK, slightly more a couple of cookies) there's a slash and dash.

No, it appears the morning vomit fest known as "Murph and Mac" are safe (they re-upped last year) but nothing surprises me anymore with Cumulus. No such thing too as "guaranteed contracts."

Think someone you would assume "there's no way they'd can him." Just a hunch. Remember, Cumulus is about to declare BK.

*Tolbert is safe.
*John Lund is a jerk and asswipe but probably safe.
*Fitz and Brooks: Sponsored programming even though no one listens.

  1. Had Murph and Mac on the car radio last week. Made it through 3 minutes before I cried "uncle" and changed stations.

      I thought the Cumulus Cleanse involved tonic water, a hose and coughing 3 times. Is this true, Christine?

  2. Dare I say it Rich...Gary!!!! HE makes a ton of money wY and ma's or most of the time. On top of that, he is starting to get long in the tooth. Everybody knows that Larry carries the show as it is. I realuze it probably wont happen, but you never know.

    1. It's too bad we couldn't get rid of TheObserver from Bay Area social media and news websites.

  4. Rod Brooks of Fitz & Brooks incredibly has been with KNBR for 20 years now as a sports talk show host starting with KNBR 1050 in August 1997. Brooks has been the only African-American sports talk show host ever on KNBR 680. In terms of racial diversity it would be potentially a really bad look for KNBR to can Brooks even though both Fitz & Brooks are simply horrendous. In addition last
    year KNBR cut their Sports Talk Show hours from 12- 3 pm to now only 2 hours from 1 - 3 pm. Didn't know Fitz & Brooks were sponsored programming. That either leaves the insufferable Bob
    Fitzgerald, the Bentley Man or his lackey Krueger.

  5. Well, Marty can go back to A's games.

  6. One very obvious name is off the list. He can take his tired old schtick back to KRON 4...or if he had enough brains, he could go out by the Farrallons and do a pirate broadcast. Nobody would listen, except for the sea gulls. It's that way now, so no big transition for him.

  7. Marty buys time from KNBR through his production company and sells his own sponsorships. Cumulus is hopefully not stupid enough to slaughter that cash cow

    1. MARTY is why i no longer listen to knbr.Far too much time on the air for me.Pregame and postgame,and seriously you have to ask yourself why? His insights are no better then what you can find online ourselves.

    2. Right on. That is also what he did at Oakland Athletics a few years ago. So he is really a client/advertiser of KNBR.

  11. If Gary gets canned, maybe they can bring back Kate Scott and pair her with Krueger. She is sooooo knowledgeable. Sickening thought.

    1. I'm waiting for Kate Scotts book "A lesbian on sportphone 68" and all the dirt she must be hiding on ALL the hosts and managment. Put me on the waiting list.

    2. Her twitter bio is ridiculous.
      Surprised she didn't list paper routes she has had. Glad she is gone--

    1. Kevin Frandsen has absolutely nothing to offer. He's as empty as they come. He's also so afraid of criticizing the Giants that his only potential benefit - - he played ball - - is neutralized. I doubt he'd have any insights anyway.

  15. was referring to the flow of conversation between them. it sounded like 2 human beings conversing and not Kreuger just playing 2nd fiddle to the orchestrations of Radnich.

  16. I listened to about ten minutes of Krueger and Fransen while driving across town today. They were horrible; bad and badder
