I'm devastated. I've been listening since they started airing the Sports Hangover.

Well there wasn't any mention on the broadcast today that I heard. The hosts didn't seem like they were out of the ordinary either.

Crossing finger that the deal falls through.

I guess this is what it is for almost all local sports radio shows.

Hell, look at the Baton Rouge market.... Jon Fine, Buddy Songy, and Richard Condon should be cooking fries at McDonalds if I had my way.

It is sad that this is what we have come to.

He is the dumbass shite stirer who comes on at 4 I'm pretty sure. He really doesn't claim a party all that much. Just likes to sit on the fence and act like a real man of knowledge on all topics.

His dad was a great long time WWL man from back in the day. Karre is just floating on his back.

So who is it that comes on around 2 when the Sports Hangover ends?

The station isn't selling the product well enough. Therefore, no money is coming in to pay for all expenses. There are two sales people in the entire building off Decatur. Bye Bye, WIST.

Kaare's deceased father was Phil Johnson, long time anchorman for one of the TV news stations. Kaare worked his way up through sports talk in BR in the early 1990's. He actually had to pay the station for his own airtime and any advertising he could drum up was his only income. He has earned his stripes, whether you like them or not.

Kaare is spot on with many topics related to NOLA. It's nice to have host who will just lay it out there, and call a spade a spade. Have you ever heard Bobby or Deke say anything negative about the Saints, City, Hornets? No, that station is a station of homers who will never change. When 870 allowed Garland Robinette to continue his show without leave last year, I was done. It was so 870, "I didnt do anything wrong taking a loan from a guy under Federal investigation, ok, onto the next topic of the day..."

This fricking sucks!

Kaare has a great radio presence. He is a pretty good troll. He just doesn't give a shite what other people think.


He was a sports guy in NOLA as well back in the early 2000s

He needs to get off Tulane's jock. Plus, he has too much of the "pause" thing going on.

That said, he is light years ahead of Deke and Bobby.

Meaning that while I'm not crazy about him, he is a professional broadcaster and understands the basics of on-air announcing.

Deke and Bobby NoYes are ridiculous. They still do not freaking know when to STFU and they still talk over every damn body.
