Does anyone else find WWLs on air talent extremely annoying"



That Christian guy always tooting his Marine horn.
That Semper Fi crap is getting old
Deke constantly on the rag.
Bobby the self proclaimed Father of the Whodat nation...a deadbeat dad since he went Falcon
Garland Robinette, opinionated think tank host who took the payoff, but won't admit it..
Scoot is whiney and always talking about his own success and opinions..like we care what he thinks
Tommy's OK I can take small doses of him
The only one I really like is Spud.
Sorry....had to vent...or rant

But Deke and Christian do grate.

All right, thanks, man. I don't really know what your point is, but thanks.

And stay out of Woolsworth!

I think you're being generous with the word "talent."

I'm from NOLA and still go down there for work every other week. You're using the word "talent" very loosely.

It's EXTREMELY annoying. He uses his service as a crutch too often.
quote:

Deke constantly on the rag.

Honestly don't know how the frick this guy is on a major station in a major city. Dude belongs on the radio in Bunke.
quote:

Bobby the self proclaimed Father of the Whodat nation...a deadbeat dad since he went Falcon

I actually like Bobby. At least he's entertaining.
quote:

Garland Robinette, opinionated think tank host who took the payoff, but won't admit it..

Dude is one shady arse mofo.
quote:

Scoot is whiney and always talking about his own success and opinions..like we care what he thinks

Scoot isn't bad. He has some demons that he talks about often so I can appreciate someone that's actually real.
quote:

Tommy's OK I can take small doses of him

This is another one I put in the category of how the frick is he a host in a major city. He should join Deke in Bunke.

Spud's ok. He just neve takes a side so he offers little entertainment value.

New Orleans radio is the worst. I listen to it just b/c it has New Orleans news (when I can pick it up that is)

Obviously I can't stand most of the hosts in Atlanta but they are so much better at keeping the show moving and staying on topics and changing topics at the right time. They also don't allow some jackass to stay on air for 5 minutes at a time. They also don't cut people off and call them idiots b/c they have differing opinions.

I honestly have no clue how half the on-air "talent" even got on the radio in New Orleans

The sportstalk talent is atrocious. I stopped listening. Bobby is just stupid and Deke acts like he's the smartest guy in the room but he's an ignorant stubborn jackass.

By any objective measure, it's inexplicable how a "flagship" station like 870 -- which the games of two major league franchises on its schedule, and which is the NOLA home of LSU sports, and which presumably has the resources commensurate with its standing in the sports/talk radio arena in this area -- cannot or will not upgrade its on-air talent.

It's one thing to have one or two barely intelligible guys with "local color" involved in your broadcasts, as long as you have a competent straight guy. But to have two of them as the centerpiece of your highest profile daily show ... well, that's a joke.

No hyperbole here -- I refuse to listen to 870 sports unless it's a game. That's it. That is my message to the station's management.

Kristian is okay at times, he's pretty logical in comparison's to deke and bobby at times but then he's got demeanor that's a bit arrogant.

Bobby is a okay at times and at times a dufus. He's horrible in interviews, sometimes his opinions are valid.

Deke can be an a-hole and has no tolerance for the callers. Callers on WWL i must say are some of the worst in the country.

I enjoy Bobby. But I agree about Deke though. It blows my mind how he landed that gig.

All media "personalities" are annoying, but I actually prefer the homegrown guys versus the know-it-all smug New York and Los Angeles media who portray themselves as "national" media, and know absolutely DICK about college football, New Orleans, and the South in general.

Garbage..the whole lot of them.

I listen to Gus Kattengell on 106.1 FM ESPN for local sports talk from 3-6pm. They are far and away better then Dick and Booby A-Bear.

I cannot stand Bobby. I remember him being plastered after the SB Victory, and to an extent I understand, but have some professionalism for gods sake. His 4 minute questions and "father of who dat nation" also drive me up the wall.

However, my favorite was Hokie's, "This makes my eyes wanna vomit". Oh god, I almost pissed myself laughing.

Anyone that bitches about 104.5 has never had to listen to SportsTalk on the way home from work.

"Sorry, I'm gonna have to let you go. You disagree with me and I dont want to talk to anyone requiring me to have an actual intelligent thought."

"Hold your point."

"Win the Turnover battle"

"Today we welcome in our special guest, football great Chris Carter. Thanks for the time Chris, but we have to go to commercial break."

Between 5pm and 5:30, you will get tops, 10 mins of actual show time in between commercials and news. The same news they just played 15 mins ago.

Moscona is full of himself, but at least he has a halfway decent show. Hell of a lot better interviewer than anyone from WWL.
