Coming over and 94.5 not being able to repair the relationship.
In the Zone the just had a commercial that gives you the number of days till the Finebaum contract is up and announcer says "hey but who is asking" or something like that.
If that occurs I hope the shakeup at the zone finally means Matt Coulter gets pushed off the air forever. He is so bad at radio it scares me.
But I also wonder what Jox will do. Do they keep IMO the best radio show, the Round Table, at its spot for what are good ratings or move it to the better time slot of 2 to 6 but up against the highest rated show of PF? And what new show and with who does Jox go with to fill in the 4 hours they must make up.
Has Finebaum ever been happy. He has whined about every station he's every been on.
The Zone commercial is really ridiculous.
I think the matchup of Roundtable vs Paul is very interesting. He'll have better ratings just because of the Sirius thing, but I wouldn't be surprised to see the Roundtable win the Bham market.
I would definitely choose roundtable over finebaum
Just to be very clear I would too. It is the best radio show going.
Jox will either let Finebaum go and risk losing a good number of their lineup or they resign him which I feel is more likely. He brings too much cred to the rest of the station and they won't risk losing that, IMO. There are interviews that Jox guys get at events like media days that wouldn't happen without Finebaum being on board.
Also, the RT, which I enjoy as well. couldn't have the same show from 2-6 that they have now. Many more kids in cars with parents to do what they do at times.

The one with Rachel Baribeau is ridiculously bad. Too many awkward periods of silence doesn't make for good radio.
But, I'd rather listen to her than the crazy callers from Finebaum.
She doesn't have a voice for radio. I can't stand to listen to her.
But she got a face for my pillow

Sometimes its better to just listen to nothing at all
While we are talking about sports talk in B'ham. I drive around B'ham for a living so I hear all the show's. The one thing that has really gotten under my skin, and I just wanted to see if i'm the only one. Has anyone listen to the Sports Czars? While the show at times is funny & entertaining, its not very knowledgeable when it comes to sports. But that isn't what bothers me. Has anyone heard Rick call in as Dickey Nadmyer? This character was once funny untill, he became open about his and the Rick & Bubba Show's love for all things AuBarn. Now Dickey is a stupid sounding, back woods, trailer trash, inbred idiot drunk. And wouldn't you know it, after every other word he yells Roll Tide. And to me just tries to make Alabama fans sound really bad. I maybe the only one this comes off too like this but, it gets my blood boiling and just wanted to see if anyone else feels the same way.
I agree completely. Their love for all things Aubbie makes me sick. While we're on the topic of Rick Burgess, I used to listen to R&B but couldn't stomach their attitudes towards anyone who doesn't think like they do. I fear Rick is a phony of what the general public thinks he is.
I dont see roundtable as being any more crude than finebaum. The language on finebaum is actually much worse.

IMO, The Roundtable would go head to head with Finebaum in this market and win, so I look for them to be moved into PF's time slot and go to battle.
If that happens, that would be Finebaum's most serious competition that he has ever had in this market.
