You sure like that emoticon, don't ya?

Dan MacDonald??? Good lord. Is CKLW trying to put its audience to sleep?

Is the station ever going to fix its piss poor sounding audio? Can hardly hear the damn station without turning the audio knob all the way up to the 12 o'clock position!

Dan's an OK jock on 93.9 but not the best, IMO. Not sure if he has any experience in talk radio, though. I think there could have been some better choices to replace Lynn. Definitely a big downgrade for CKLW.

Is it just me, or is every host on CKLW boring? I will admit I do not tune in much, but every time I do I feel like I am going to fall asleep.

It isn't just you. The station is awful. It gets big ratings because of (a) legendary and highly well known call letters, (b) Windsor-Essex is a diary market and (c) old fogies over 60 probably listen to the station in massive numbers.

The drive time programming on CBC Radio One is much better.

CKLW only targets Windsor. Always has since taking the talk format from AM 580. They are the only commercial talk radio station in the market, it wouldn't matter if they were 50kW or 500 watts, they'll do "well enough" by default.

Choosing Dan MacDonald shouldn't be a surprise. You really thought that Bell would spend money on a new host after endless downsizing at the cluster???
