We're still stinging from the near-elimination of live & local weekend radio on KIRO... and we weren't the only ones.
We got a note Saturday night from a name-recognizable manager in Seattle radio who says to describe him as "a former insider who is really perplexed by some of [KIRO's] recent moves."
"I was riding home with my wife this evening... we turned on the radio to get some evening reaction on the caucuses (the Obama win and the still-being-tallied numbers on the GOP side).
"I checked out KIRO and they were running Wednesday night's TBTL."
It was a perfect night for Goldstein to do what he does best...and Bonneville is basically telling listeners to go fuck themselves with 3-day old crap.
We couldn't have said it better.
Not than any of the other talk stations are any better: KVI with their infomercials and old Sean Hannity's; KTTH with Dr. Mixon's genteel quackery, and Kim Komando swooping in off the bird.
Sadly, the historic KIRO brand is being trashed in the process.
