KFNX is going in a different direction

Changes are a brewing at KFNX 1100 AM, and it looks like a big shakeup is about to commence and it appears that the station will return to brokered programming aka infomercials, as it was when the recycled program director was heading the operation before.
Bob Mohan announced today his will do his last KFNX radio show this Friday from NOON-2p.m.

The assault on the airwaves, that is the result of this programming decision should be grounds for FCC revoking their license. I thought that the radio airwaves belonged to the public and programming should reflect the public interest, not to whet the desires of neo-nazi groups and snake oil salesmen.


I don't understand, Naum. Who are the neo-nazis? Does this mean Newcomb, and whats-her-face in the morning are gone, as well (not that aI listen too much).
You're right though. Since when do people actually take the time to listen to goddamned infomercials? WTF? Does anyone WATCH them (okay, I watched the Carson video commercials)?

I'll say this for KFNX; when it comes to local radio, they re much better than the others. Even with Newcomb, who's as entertaining as John Sebastian was. It looks like I'll be listening to 960 now (no locals, all syndicated).

Sorry, but Goyette has flown the coop. Naum, can't you talk to Straus and convince him to return? It hasn't been the same without his show.
