Notice to all Buzzboard readers & posters: A requested server migration took place Saturday evening. Unfortunately, I did not re-point my DNS records to the new server until roughly 7:45p ET on Monday, November 12. As a result, any posts and new user registrations occurring between the nighttime hours of 11/10 and approximately 7:45p ET on Monday, 11/12 have been lost.

This was unavoidable, and the longer I waited to re-point to the new server, the greater the number of posts that would've been lost.

Please feel free to resubmit any threads / posts you created. They will NOT be lost this time! Many thanks for your patience these past couple of weeks while I've worked to migrate the Buzzboard to a more secure, more robust platform.

Re: Reese Rickards Bounced from IHeart

The person tasked (Dan graber) with reading the news as reese's replacement could possibly be the worst news reader I have ever heard. I've given it some time for the gentleman to grow into his role, but 4 months in he still sounds like he's going to say "and boom goes the dynamite" at any time whil...

Re: Eric Zane to WBBL

You can't honestly expect show number two with all new people, a new board, and a new clock, to be "tight" I agree some of the topics were a struggle, but again, show number two. 4 hours of content. Not even a pop off sound machine yet. I find it interesting that no one is discussing Friday's show. ...

Re: Eric Zane to WBBL

Good show on day two.

Listened to show one again. Sounds like Russ has tight panties and was too high on himself, free beer wants soft rock style talk, and hot wings was indifferent.

I only met Russ once, but he was a real big look at me guy when I did.

Re: Eric Zane to WBBL

FBHW had been going more vanilla over the years as they tried to get more syndication. Everything was the free beer and hot wings report. My guess is FB wanted to protect his brand as host and sports PBP guy and Eric was doing the same things that made them successful in the first place. Eric is a l...

Re: Zane From Free beer and hot wings is FIRED

I popped on the video to see what he would say. Seems very much like a Russ Hines-led incident. Backchannel intel is telling me that they used the Deltaplex comments as a driving reason to fire him. This is a Zane vs Corporate issue as much as I can tell. Also, Daisy is a very rotund bulldog. Zane ...

Re: Zane From Free beer and hot wings is FIRED

I have stated this before, but what if Russ Hines used this opportunity to break one off in Zane for how they tortured billy a few years ago, when Russ had to work with that gasbag.

Re: Zane From Free beer and hot wings is FIRED

I really find it hard to believe that the owner of the Delta Plex has that kind of stroke, even though he also owns the intersection. If (big if) he has caused this, Townsquare is run by a group of pussys. Don't know how authentic this is, but sounds realistic. Hard to believe that Joel gave WGRD a...

Re: Zane From Free beer and hot wings is FIRED

Well, the shot clock wasn't working and he went on to rip the whole place. First off the Deltaplex IS a dump. Everyone knows that. 2nd. Does anyone have the audio of Zane's on-air rant regarding the shot-clock repairman? http://yourlisten.com/donyfilmix/UxMmY2Nj#info Okay. If that's the audio that ...

Re: Karma Baby...(Matt Hanlon)

FWIW, I heard he was fired Friday.... If he got a DUI or wrecked his car, it would have most likely been after hours.

For those scoring at home, it sounds as if he got fired, and went on a a wicked bender.
