A Happy Farewell...At Least for Us

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye to Bobby Kravitz and Colin Cowherd!!!

1070-AM The Fan (WFNI) has given Bob Kravitz the boot from the weekday afternoon "Kravitz and Eddie" show. Hehehehehehehe. Unfortunately, the powers at Emmis left Eddie White to host the show with multiple co-hosts to help out, including Kravitz on a part-time basis, i.e. unpaid. While we here at are not huge fans of Bob Kravitz, I'm even less thrilled with Eddie White. I guess Emmis felt they could get away with it since WNDE 1260-AM dumped JMV for Mark Patrick (bad move) and XL-950-AM requires aluminum foil and gymnastics moves in order to tune in anywhere north of 56th Street.

Emmis stated that the motivator was financial in nature and not a slam on Kravitz. Yeah, right, and monkeys might fly out of my butt! And next month when Emmis adds a permanent co-host to the show again, then what are you going to say? That Eddie sucks ass as a solo act? Obviously since they've stated he will have a revolving door of part-time co-hosts.

Emmis has also reshuffled their lineup to move the Dan Dakich Show from a 10am to 1pm time slot to noon to 3pm. As a result the Colin Cowherd Show aired by ESPN is now caput. This is a good/bad thing. While I really had a hard time listening to Colin, he was typically good for some fodder for It will be interesting to see how the ratings go for 1070 having local content from noon till 6pm, or even longer on some nights.

**See EDIT below**

I guess we still have Kravitz to deal with in the paper and your faithful crew of will be ever ready to tell Kravitz what a fucktard he is.

**EDIT** - Sorry, I guess I should actually read everything in an article, huh? I missed in all of the show shuffling that Joe Staysniak will host a mid-morning show from 10am to noon weekdays. So now 1070 will be almost all local all the time from 10am to 6pm or later. I really don't think we have that much going on Indy to warrant local hosts for 8+ hours on weekdays. Granted, I think most of the ESPN radio hosts suck major assage, but at least you got some national news and input. Now you will get to hear the same things over and over and over and over and over and.... Personally, I don't think it's going to work as well as Emmis thinks it will. My bet is that they will be reshuffling things again by September.

I think I've got a paper cut...who's got some lemon juice?
