2009-01-19 11:39:11   I heard a rumor that Lonsberry may be leaving. I think this would be a big mistake. I find Bob a bit of a loose cannon at times but he is generally fair and has great common sense, something we need more of these days. I think that the D&C is in trouble, partly because the editorial staff is out of touch with the readership. To keep WHAM connected locally you benefit from having a local voice. I think Lonsberry does a nice job. —gregriley

2009-01-19 16:59:26   FYI Greg-the rumor of his leaving came right from his own writing ([WWW]http://lonsberry.com/writings.cfm). He is just trying to drum up discussion as usual—he knows nothing for sure.

As to Dave's comment from 9/7/2008 Sean Hannity has never contributed to 1180 in the morning. Rush has a morning blurb (generally to be ignored). Hannity is on from 11pm-1am. —PeteB

Another good station is 1040/92.1 WYSL. They seem to have alot more local talent involved than WHAM. WHAM carries mostly national shows and WYSL seems to play more local shows. I personally enjoy listening to both for different reasons. —Beadle
