I was searching the interwebs the other day to find out more about the Chuck Powell/Morning Ritual fiasco and found this on Yahoo! Answers. This is courtesy of azirishman70, its freakin’ awesome:
“Today, We Former Edge 103.9 listeners salute…….THAT GUY! You know the guy which just this week fired his top rated morning show jock to bring in a nationally syndicated radio show that has been twice cancelled by other stations in the valley!
Instead of keeping one of the funniest host in valley radio history on your station, that guy decided to abandon the “independent radio” label that he work so hard three years ago to perfect, and sell out to the man and bring in a “shock jock” for a few bucks saved on the company payroll, and to get what he thinks will be a few extra points in the Arbitron ratings for morning drive time.
Right now, that guy is sitting in his cushy office, in his plush leather chair counting the immediate savings to the “bottom line”. But what that guy doesn’t realize that his bone-headed decision could cost his station even more money that he is saving in lost ratings, lost sponsorship, and lost respect in the station that broke away from the corporate ownership trend and vowed to listen to its listeners here in the valley. In fact, that guy tried this once before and found out what a HUGE mistake it was!
In fact, that guy feels that the station will gain more brain-dead male chauvinistic listeners in the 18 to 25 age group then he will lose in all the other age groups!
At this time, that guy is setting back thumbing his nose at all the loyal “Morning Ritual” listeners saying that. “I’d rather be that guy than keeps his listeners happy and say ‘screw the big bucks that running Adam Corolla will bring the station dude’”.
Well First off, this letter is not about, “I’d rather be that guy then keeps his listeners happy and say ‘screw the big bucks that running Adam Corolla will bring the station dude’”; it’s about THAT GUY!
Second, Adam Corolla is not that damn funny! In fact, he is a chauvinistic *** who most entertaining thing he has done in the past 5 years is embarrass himself by riding a unicycle on “Dancing with the Stars”!!! There is a reason his show has been cancelled twice in the valley……IT SUCKS!!!!
So if you think the core of what had been loyal Edge 103.9 listeners will continue to listen to your station at ANY TIME…you are sadly mistaken!!!
So if this letter offends you at any way, there is a good reason why…….YOU’RE THAT GUY!!!”
