Seems like the kind of thing Limbaugh and Beck listeners would be furious about.
They really would be - seems like this station is quite this mash up. Strangely, there is no online presence for that station - which would only make sense if everything was syndicated. But it sounds to me like the morning show is local people.

Perhaps you need to listen to the Women of the Round table more often, they are trying to bring national, state and local information to our airways. These ladies have their facts and figures to back what they are discussing.

AND these ladies have the backbone and spin to stand up and speak up about what they believe in.

Kelly, is a well-respected host, who is fair and balanced to those she interviews. Her programs include many key guests: politicans, charity organizations, business owners, authors etc.- always informative to those who listen to the program.

Listen for yourself. Monday through Fridays, 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. It's worth the time to listen to!

When I hear the phrase "fair and balanced" I immediately think "conservative extremist."

Women of the Round Table, that's what this show is called?

"...the backbone and spin to stand up and speak up..."

I gotta say - you said so much without saying a single thing in that post. Who is Kelly and is there a website for this program?

I'm writing this in response to this entire forum.I'am a regular listner to The Women Of The Round Table show.Ihave inquired about having the ladies speak to my womens group. Apperantly "Millie" and others haven't listened to this show or they would know the ladies have talked about health care reform,gun control,sex offenders and how to keep your children safe among other topics and yes they did speak of Tiger Woods infidelty and Haiti. The general feeling on Tiger it's a personal thing and true if he would kept his unit to himself he would have saved himself&his family a world of hurt.Haiti if it really offends you that the ladies felt we should be taking care of our own people not just the homeless,think about katrina. Those people are still trying to rebuild with little govt. help because we havent got the money.Maybe you should revealuate how you feel as Americans!!!!!Also you want to call the ladies out for spwelling hatred when the 1st sentence,2nd paragraph of your(Millie) comment you bashed the host a woman who I assume you've never spoke with much less have met. I say in closing and to your post consider the source.

Hey moms, did you hear the phrase in question used in connection with Tiger's problems?

Would you want your children to have heard this phrase?

#1 what child is listening to talk radio at all let alone at 8:ooa.m. on a monday morning when they should be in school #2 what about the cartoons they watch with the lack of clothing the characters have on and the adult humor.#3 what about the music on the radio , yes so called music, its nothing but filth ( I don't hear anybody complaining about the garbage the senior high plays in thier gym while the varsity team practices before a game. Pure garbage- I heard F&*# and cocaine within the first 15 sec. of the song. There are older folks and kids of all ages.#4 If you have a problem with the ladies then turn the station.

Did anyone listen to the trashy local talk radio show this morning (Monday). A bunch of nasty foul-mouthed kvetches spouting off about everything from Tiger Woods to Haiti Relief Aid. What an embarrassment to our area.
It started out with the host, who sounds likes she smokes a carton a day, asking the "women's roundtable" what they thought about Tiger Woods' apology. The first thing
you heard was one of the member of the
coven say, "Well if he would have kept his
**** in his pants..." They then went on to
bemoan the fact that Americans saw fit to
help the poor people of Haiti in their hour of
need, basically calling us stupid for not
helping bums on the street, who the majority
CHOOSE to live there. I couldn't believe I
was listening to "supposed" local "ladies"
spew this hatred! The FCC should start
monitoring this radio show and fines should
be paid for offensive language.
You are unwittingly creating a buzz for the show that thousands of dollars of ad campaigns couldn't do. Already, you have me wishing I could listen to the show online to draw my own opinions. If they are using FOX news as a model, they should do well in Frank's County. Have the Taylor's been a guess, yet? That's your area's "T" party.

Women of the Round Table sounds like a local teabagger version of Fox and Friends.

Save it - I have better things to do in the morning.

Quite interesting to read this.
HI! I am part of the women of the round table. Our hopes on that show is to wake up and maybe try to shake up the tri state area. Maybe it seems to be racist to you that we speak of illegal immigration but we didn't mention any race its whats on everyone else mind as we have jobs taken from us. Or maybe the fact that we feel Charity should begin at home. I bet if you ask anyone from the Alabama or Louisiana areas that are still in fema trailers they would agree. We weren't being heartless. If you search the internet you will find there are others that feel the same way. Did you know that some Pa counties may not recieve federal funding for all this snow removal?
Do you not want to know whats in our health care plan or do you just want the government deciding this for you.
I think if you all are talking about this then we are doing our job of waking you all up to whats going on out there. I think its good to look at different sides of stories and opinions, its how you can learn to form your own opinion and grow.
And for all the people that do love our show its Mondays 8AM for just an hour. If you don't like it then pull the pillow over your heads because that obviously how you live anyways!

So how much do they pay you to dupe the American people? Why can't you people tell the truth?

Davey boy, your problem is you cannot handle the truth...in fact, you can't recognize the truth when it is placed in front of you.

Oh, and before you decide to bash me about listening to this program, forget it...never heard it and probably never will.

May God Bless America!

Sounds like you ladies jump on hot button issues that get people's emotions in a frenzy - a cheap and easy way to get listeners I suppose.

I have yet to weigh in on the merits of the topics discussed on the roundtable.

I AM talking about the offensive phrase used this Monday morning. There is no defense for said phrase.

It's been a while since I took COM LAW, but I'm thinking the FCC would NOT appreciate such discourse.

This isn't rocket science we're talking here.

I doubt they got rid of Mancow in favor of local programming. It is far more likely his show was too expensive and this was a cheaper alternative.
.
Same thing happened with Opie and Anthony, were getting decent ratings and bringing in money but the Terrestrial Radio business is BROKE and they can't afford to keep good talent who they have to pay well. Instead the go "local" aka. Pay a no name no money to save $$$. Get Sirius/XM radio it is well worth the 13 bucks a month or so, great comercial free music stations, great talk stations and everything else you could really want out of radio and no worrying about being out of range for signals etc, you can listen to the same channel as you drive across the country.

If you don't like it TURN IT OFF!!!!!!!!!! Just becasue your object to the language doesn't mean you have the right to take it away from everyone else that may want to listen to it. There is no VALID arguement to support language restrictions on radio. You have plenty of choices on the radio, if you don't want to hear racy talk don't listen to it!

I know all the members of the round table and these ladies do a lot of research on the subjects that they discuss. If you would like to see the paperwork I'm sure the ladies would provide it to you. As far as calling them names shows how ignorant you are. It sounds like some of you have a personal agenda, hum, what is it.

Are you being deliberately obtuse? It doesn't matter if there's a "valid" argument about language restrictions on the radio. They exist. And breaking these laws can RUIN a radio station.

Furthermore, radio shows which engage in envelope-pushing language almost always have bumper warnings at the beginning of the show, letting the listener know what they're getting into.

"Good Morning Tri-State" is the LAST show a parent would expect to hear this phrase, and therefore it's irresponsible programming.

I await your inevitable non-response.

God forbid the radio cause you to have to have a realistic and honest conversation with your child about language. No it's much better to hide your heads in the sand and hiding from language. Your little snowflake has heard much worse at school, maybe you can take the oppertunity to discuss proper language and teach them instead of sheltering them.
