Post by Daypart » Mon Aug 05, 2019 5:20 pm

Anyone have insight on why he left? Where he went?

Who cares. The guy contributed nothing on-air. Had the most annoying voice; his live reads were cringe worthy.

Entercom is cutting overhead all over the country. Their earnings have sucked ass and their stock performance has been abysmal over the past 12 months.

I didn't say it wasn't a good move. I'm just curious. He was horrific I agree. I never understood why Valenti mixed in the stooges after Foster retired. Either get an actual co-host or do the show solo...don't half-ass it with a call screener and producer chiming in.

He wasnt horrible and he wasnt great. His purpose was to provide a crutch for Mike when needed and give "millennial" context to the conversation. I'm sure he contributed more behind the scenes.

I'm not gonna rag the guy, but I will say that it has been months since I've tuned in. It's not just because the local teams stink, but because a). The schtick is old and b). I'm trying (although sometimes it's futile) to avoid things that I know are gonna piss me off (hence avoiding the PolPot section lately. Yikes).

But, in the station's instance, what goes up, must come down. And if you thought we might get another FM sports station anytime soon, forget it.

I never like to see anyone lose their job, so I wish him well. I always wished, after Foster’s departure, that Valenti would get a co-host, as opposed to a ‘yes’ man like Sully.

There is this thing called VACATION. Don't know if you've heard of it.

I doubt he's been fired since they were joking about him yesterday.

97.1 really wants their full lineup to be around during football season, so a lot of their staff takes large chunks of time off in August. Samuelsen's been out for a week. Karsch was out all last week, Valenti was out all last week and will be out next week.

97.1 is a complete joke. Stoney and crew talking about strangest places to ever have sex and every geek around calling in with their fantssy including Verlander's bathroom.

Sorry, lol, now they are getting philosophical about outter space. That's where they belong. What would it take to get a real sports station around here?

Thats what you get when every single team around here sucks and football isnt yet going.
