Talk about overkill, same songs played every single day just at different times. What is up with that? For a "new" radio station, it's not doing anything original..Same old stuff, just a different day.

What happened to Gary & Beth on 92.9!? Were they just told over that weekend that they have no more jobs? Miss them & Vicki Cohill!! Weird!! Was there even an announcement that this was happening? I don't listen anymore to that station as much now!

Listened to Gary and Beth every morning. Now I only listen when I use the bathroom in the morning. Those 2 in the morning are so juvenile. Station sucks a big one only listen now cause the bathroom radio only get that one station.

the new Q92.9 is a bummer. I listened to Gary and Beth in the am because of their fun, calm style that made them seem listener friendly, especially since it was in the morning. And I switched from 99.7 a long time ago. Like the other comments, this new setup just doesnt cut it.

The new 92.9 is disappointing.

What were they thinking??? No, obviously they weren't thinking at all. I feel like I lost members of my family since Gary, Beth and Amy were so unexpectedly taken off the airwaves. I hope they were able to get other jobs. I haven't turned back to 92.9 since this happened, and I don't plan on listening ever again.

I agree I really miss Gary, Beth and Amy - I never missed their show. The new 92.9 is absolutely the pits. Boring!!!! I don't listen to it. It has become generic. Bring back Gary, Beth and Amy.

I really miss Gary and Beth. It's just not the same without them. Also the new Q92 plays too many repeat songs. So disappointing for a "new" station. I now keep switching back and forth to other stations -- just can't find one that I can say I really like.

Oh, plese bring back Gary & Beth. They were the best. I tried listening to this radio station and it is just awful. Gary and Beth were so great together. I turned on 92.9 as soon as I awoke to go to work. I also miss John Gallagher, who was just super.

I must admit I miss Gary and most of the other staff at 92.9. Beth can stay off the radio from now until December 2012 for all I care. In the beginning she was great. She and Gary were an ideal team. As of late, she got uppity, snobbish & snippy and very condesending toward some callers. It was time for her to go. Gary always stayed Gary. Witty and down to earth. The music as the station seems about the same to me. Less jock talk which is good.

I miss hearing Vicki Cohill. Her voice was so soothing. The Q92.9 station identification song between songs is annoying. You should bring back Vicki.

I used to work at the station when they were still 92.9, Lite FM. The one air staff person that needed to be cut was John Gallagher. His on-air delivery was just so fake, and not the easiest guy to work for either. I should know, he was my boss. I loved Gary & Beth. If you thought they were funny on the air, you should have heard them when the microphone was off. They were a hoot to work with. I was "pink slipped", personally by Gallagher, via voice-mail. How professional, to find that you've lost your job on your voice-mail. Such class. But the main thing that is broken at Q-92 / Lite FM is the music. It is simply dreary. WSHH won the fight. Move on. How about doing a kick-butt Oldies format. It's Pittsburgh, and that would work. And put jocks back on the air. It's BORING without them. Oh, and tell sister station BOB-FM to drop those stupid BOB-isms. They're horrid.
