South Florida radio icon Neil Rogers calls it quits, retires

Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The Neil Rogers era in South Florida radio is over. Rogers, for most of the past 33 years the most popular talk host in the market, has reached an agreement that removes his 10 a.m.-2 p.m. program from WQAM immediately.

The day has finally come when this individual with an overinflated opinion of himself is off the air.

May he remain in toronto and rot.

Yeah, I heard that guy once or twice years ago. He was the worst thing I have ever heard.

Completely nasty, everything negative, juvenile, gross, etc.

To this day, I hardly turn on 560. It kind of just became ingrained to stay away from the station.

And I usually don't care too much one way or the other, but I really disliked that mound of negativity - even in the minor brush.

Whew! At least sports are just what they are...a way to pass the time and not really all that important. Not some crazy, mean jerk who has nothing good to say about anything.

Enough was enough of this guy. Too bad that he was in this market spewing his hate for so long. I did listen to him for a while and found him to be insulting.
So enjoy your retirement, enjoy your money, and enjoy Canada. I can't think of a better place for him especially since he always complained about our neighbors to the North!

At 41, and a Neil listener since the pope arrived in florida: I hope he returns.

I take comfort in intelligence,caustic intelligence is entertaining.

I will listen to Jim Mandage, because he is an entertaining man: not because he is a jock.

Wqam is clearly not thinking well.

It's amazing how hateful most of these comments are and yet he was consistently the highest rated talk host in SF. You either loved him or hated him, but you couldn't turn it off.
Thanks Neil. You gave me many laughs. You'll be sorely missed. Now go and get a life.

Neil is awesome. Not afraid to tell it like it is. I know a lot of people in South Florida will miss the Bridge Tender and Eisner bits. Thanks for everything Neil. I wish you well.

Neil Rogers was a south FL icon - and leave it to a queen to have the biggest balls in all the land!

He was a breath of fresh air because he told the truth about every self serving, self righteous douchebag in Florida. Only fitting that we get more of the "jockocracy" once his show goes. We love ya - Neil God!

Just what we needed in this market, even more mundane, brain cell killing sports talk.
