Well Bob Haa is apparently either sick or on vacation again… not sure why the station management down at WWJB allows the morning talk show, Haa Wire, to be down. This show has to be the life blood of the station and is the most listened to program on WWJB.
Nobody gives a shit about the “Clark Howard Show” or “Niel Boortz”, people listen to WWJB during the week for that 3 hours of golden radio known as the Haa Wire.
If Bob is out sick, on vacation, or has been kidnapped by the Secret Service the station should hire Mark Larson to fill in until he gets back.
Oh well time to flip on the Tampa Sports Radio to catch up on some Tampa Bay Lightning nooze.
Just heard an interview on WWJB’s early morning show with that Mike Reeves guy from Tampa. The interview was with a guy named Frank Digiovanni who apparently is the City Manager of Inverness, which is the County Seat and largest city in Citrus County. Before I chew into this jabroni from Jersey that somehow managed to hoodwink the native Florida citizens of Inverness into allowing him to be the City Manager, I need to give some background on ole Mike Reeves.
Now typically I don’t listen to WWJB’s early morning show because I don’t like the format, and I’m not fond of the host. The host is a guy by the name of Mike Reeves and he used to be the host of another show down in the Tampa market called “The Big Show” which was aired on 820AM “Newstalk Radio”. This channel used to be a good channel until they fired talk show host Mark Larson who used to be the morning host on 820AM prior to the hiring of Mike Reeves.
Prior to the firing of Mark Larson 820AM was the best news talk station in Tampa, afterwards it was and remains the worst. When 820AM fired Mark Larson they hired a slew of other talk show hosts that lasted for about a month before getting canned. After a year 820 hired Mike Reeves and his cast of rejects from Q105 to do the “Big Show” which was nothing more then a liberal slanted news talk program. Needless to say this flopped big time and after 2 years the show was canceled and the station was borderline bankrupt. Read the rest of this entry
