KROQ cans entire morning team

Hey, some of us like to talk about happenings in other areas of the country, too. Here's the place to do it.

Jeeze.... Wasn’t the morning show propping up KROQ for all these years? But, surprisingly, Woody over at KYSR has been cleaning their clocks, so maybe it’s time for a change. Probably the only place where The Woody Show is having success. I know Entercom has an unhealthy love of the Alternative format, but could we see one of the original Alt stations blown up in the next few years?

Jimmy Kimmel called out KROQ management on Twtter after news broke. IIRC, KROQ and the morning show was his first real high profile gig back in the day.

KROQ's ratings have been lackluster for a long time, not just in mornings, but throughout the week.

The Woody Show beats them fairly routinely in key demos in morning drive, and lately, KLOS also seems to be gaining some steam.

Given the recent PD change there, the fact the remnants of the Kevin & Bean show were thrown out on their ass is not a surprise in the least.


Caroline Beasley is ruining WRIF. What a bitch!!!

They're tied with Class A Spanish KRCD!

Considering how many stations are in the LA radio market, being T-14 isn't bad. There are several full-market commercial FMs behind them in the beauty pageant

This brings me to the question of providing coverage to all Hispanic listeners in the second market.

Can an smaller FM station cover the whole Spanish-Speaking community of L.A. with a Class A east of Downtown, or is it spread out, making a grandfathered superpower Class B the only way to reach the whole community?

It's not Detroit, where covering 48209 and 48146 seals the deal.
