I had no idea they were struggling. I like most it except Rome

+1

They say they are already the #1 sports station in the area during one of their intros.

Say what?
 
They're not even close to being #1 in the market. In fact their ratings are much worse than their previous music station. Station manager has been re-assigned/fired. I predict the whole station goes back to music eventually.

I get the concept because I would rather listen to local than Rome, but the market must not support it.

 TAMPA --

Sports radio shock jock Dan Sileo, let go by Tampa's WDAE-AM last March, was fired again less than a year later, this time by a South Florida station.

WQAM-AM announced Sileo's firing in a Twitter post Monday.

"Dan Sileo is no longer at 560 WQAM. We wish him well," the tweet read.

After arriving at WQAM, Sileo fell under fire for sexist tweets aimed at Fox Sports broadcaster Erin Andrews. Sileo, a former Miami Hurricanes star, also lost favor after a tirade criticizing his alma mater's loss last year to Kansas. WQAM is UM's flagship station.

On Twitter, Sileo thanked WQAM for the opportunity but wrote that he was fired because his provocative style did not mesh well with a "soft" station and "for speaking my mind."

"I'm very brutal on the air," he wrote. "WQAM couldn't take it."

Sileo, who calls himself "America's most controversial sports talk host" in his Twitter profile, added, "I can't tell the truth on the radio."

"11 Controversial Months on the Air ... U bet ... that's The Dan Sileo Show Baby!!!!!!!!" he wrote in another tweet.

The controversy included a Twitter tirade against Andrews that led to a brief suspension in January. Among the posts was a reference to the 2008 incident in which a stalker secretly recorded a video of Andrews in her hotel room.

Sileo tweeted to Andrews: "pepe hole best thing for ur career," a comment he later backed off from.

He also referred to Andrews as a "bimbo," told her to "make me dinner" and "bake me a cake" and added, "love Erin either naked or in a porn ... not at a sports desk."

Sileo, 49, was hired to host WQAM's prime late-afternoon drive-time program but was moved to midmornings in August after a management change.

Sileo moved to Miami after he was fired as WDAE's morning host in March, when he referred to three black NFL free agents as "monkeys."

He was also suspended in 2009 by WDAE's parent company, Clear Channel Inc., for erroneously stating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' owners lost millions in the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme. The station retracted the report.

Sileo, who played for the Bucs in 1987, began his tenure with WDAE in 1998.

There were several people on this message board who claimed the Bucs were broke because the Glazers were involved with Madoff. Those people cited Sileo lol

Average Quarter Hour ratings of persons 6+ from 6a-Midnight doesn't support the argument that they are struggling. They may be struggling, but unless you can provide the ratings of their target
demographic and qualitative listenership and the ability to sell that product, you, as usual, have no idea of what you're talking about.

all folks have to do is stop playing the game

All he has is playing the game, which is why he ignored the substance and took the low road, again.

There is a common thread that is the problem, I don't think everyone else should have to make the adjustments because of that thread.  Cut the thread.

On a night when you came to the Cove and left an incendiary comment in each of the top 5 threads (sort of you "shtick") . . .

You started a thread asking people to shoot Morgan in the face
Morgan objected and asked that the thread be deleted -- shocking
because you started a thread asking people top shoot him in the face, Morgan left a "who cares" comment in your thread
because Morgan left a "who cares" comment in your thread, you came to this one for no other reason then to call Morgan dumb

like I said, every thread a proxy ..

the funny thing is how fragile you troll types are when someone pushes back or treats you the same way
