Ethan Bearman is an An Insufferable Lout and Abomination; KGO Radio Torture 10-Noon

Image result for abomination CONTRARY TO POPULAR THOUGHT, I rarely listen to KGO anymore and when I do it's only for amusement when there's something big going on in the news and the designated host is talking about his favorite peanut butter recipe or interviewing some asshole life coach because that's what the guy who runs KGO likes, Mike Anthony thinks you guys are stupid and don't want news talk and would rather listen to morons like Ethan Bearman opine on Facebook topics.

Speaking of Bearman, I have a confession: I was wrong about Ronn Owens.

That is, as bad as Ronn Owens became, at least Owens could still do an occasional decent interview and talk to someone, usually, that was newsworthy and relevant and interesting.

On the other hand, Bearman is an insufferable lout and his show is an abomination even though KGO petered out many moons ago, I agree and I acknowledge. That said, there is accountability here.

Ethan Bearman
Bearman, KGO's idea of trying to attract to a few pimpled-faced millennials, is a broadcast boor. A nebbish that caters to women in Concord who still read life magazines and think getting their nails done is a day at the beach because Bearman's diet of shlock-talk is enhanced by issues that are melba toast and don't elicit any true thought or reflection. Worse yet, Bearman has no conscience and even when he does bring up a political issue because he long ago sold out and pretends to be a liberal even though he's a diehard conservative, you know he's a phony.

Pardon the elongated sentence but I haven't had coffee yet.

Bearman has no ratings. No following and no pedigree. He's on the air and no one is listening and no one will listen unless they were kidnapped by terrorists and were tortured by being placed in a room surrounded by armed thugs who threatened to kill you if you covered your ears when Bearman spoke on the air.

  1. I wouldnt care if he is a conservative or right wing. It all would be ok if he would not be boring. No great interviews; no local subjects; he PRETENDS to be broadcasting from and living in the Bay Area instead of LALALAND. It is amazing that he had no interviews or call-ins with any local leader. It is all about his dear sister; his diet etc.

    The time has come to bury KGO formally. Maybe just cremate it so it cannot be resurrected.

    1. No, it wouldn't be OK if he wasn't boring because he'd still be irritating as f*ck. I'm amazed he doesn't get punched in the face multiple times on a daily basis for irritating the living sh*t out everyone unfortunate enough to cross his path.

  2. Why are you insulting women who happen to live in Concord. LIFE magazine is now limited to the occasional special edition. Women in concord aren't listening to the program.

    1. Yes why are you insulting women in Concord. I live in Concord has for several years, live right on the border of Walnut Creek and Pleasant Hill, use to live in Benicia and Foster City, but ended up here, I don't think women or men for that matter is any different in Concord than any other place. Sure it is a little more conservative than Berkeley, but as far as I can tell most communities have a mixture of everything, from very far left to very far right. Also Concord these days is much different than Concord 20-30 years ago. I have always have friends here so have been coming here for many years. The downtown with Todos Santos Plaza is quite attractive, with resturant's Peet's, Starbucks, a books store and farmers market twice a week. There is a big new shopping center, with Whole Foods 360, Cost Plus, Restaurants, and Cinema. Also the housing prices even here is quite expensive, can't get much for less than $400.000 even a house in bad shape. Oh by the way I cannot stand Ethan, or Chip, neutral on Dr. Drew, liked him on TV, but there are other show on at that hour more interesting, if I happen to have time to listen tot he radio.

  4. To add insult to injury, Dr. Drew comes right on after Ethan and sounds very similar with annoying lady sidekick.

  5. Usually 2 lady sidekicks, both awful. You can almost hear them trying to decide if what they're about to say is in line with all their idiotic talking points. Truly atrocious radio. Almost as bad ad Bearman.

  6. I'm with 6:13, I would much prefer Ronn and Brian. The only time I can listen to Ethan is when he has David Lazarus on from the LA Times. David Lazarus use to have his own show on the old KGO and was actually quite good, he is also an excellent consumer reporter, very factual. I remember Barbara Simpson interviewed him a few time. When he had his own show he was more biased and left leaning, but that is to expected from a talk show host, I mostly lean left, but can listen to right wing hosts, as long as they are fair, and not republicans good, democrats bad. Michael Medved and Tom Sullivan falls in that category for the most part. I thought Brian was coming back, or is that still being debated. For a few weeks KGO ran commercials promoting Brian's show from 2 to 4, right about the time I heard rumors he would be back, not they don't. Any insight Rich?

  7. How the hell did he make the Talker Top 50!?! And Chip Franklin, both in the 40's! Meanwhile A & G are #24 and they love to remind us of that.

    1. Because liberal Democrats live in an echo chamber here in the Bay Area. They don't realize how everyone but their friends and twitter friends REALLY feel.

  8. I'm sorry to be positive on these hosts, but I like Bearman and Dr. Drew and Armstrong & Getty. However, can't stand Chip. I guess their ratings will determine who stays.

  9. It's why I stream KFI if I'm driving.

  10. How did Ethan Bearman go from an ardent conservative to being a strident liberal?
    Could it be, a pay check was waved in front of his face?
    Say Ethan why don't you tell us about your visit to Justin Herman Plaza and all the angry leftist you encountered?
