Jason Stein will start producing Mitch in the Morning, (KJR, mpf, 6-10) on January 2.
Remember Jason? he was the producer of The Ron & Don Show (KIROFM m-f, 3-7p) run off by Don O'Neill. That, after bringing the show from the depths of the toilet into ratings Valhalla.
It is safe to assume Jason Stein will be motivated to destroy Bonneville's 710 ESPN, plus lure (25-54) male listeners away from the KIROs. After all, he was treated like shit there... by "I would be" Don, the dimmer of Dim & Dimmer (think Tommy Smothers with pre-natal alcohol syndrome).
There's more Don O'Neill news, which would be funny, if it weren't so pathetic.
'Where are the men?' he snorted on air and on line on Oct 28. He was chiding the men of the region to become Big Brothers, which, of course, is a well thought-of mentoring program that R & D, to their credit, make a lot of noise about.
Flexing his mighty guns, O'Neill said, "If you don't look out for them, no one else is [sic] there are ways for us to stand up for kids and be a part of their village."

Guess who ISN'T standing up for kids and becoming a Big Brother... that's right, Don O'Neill. Seems partner Ron Upshaw has become a BB, but has been unable to convince his radio partner to put his time and effort where his big, fat mouth is.
