Good Riddance Curt Hansen ! Hansen ruined many radio careers, while keeping his cronies gainfully employed. For the most part, Hansen paid people minimum wage, except for his buddy Danny "Mangini" Lyons.
Hansen and Pete Salant took all the credit for the success of heritage 13 WAVZ, when in fact, the station was a ratings success long before Hansen and Salant took the reigns. As a matter of fact, when they took WAVZ over, many argued that they dulled the sound and imaging.
And then there is the years of bows that Hansen and Salant took for switching formats with sister station WKCI to KC-101 FM. This was later seen as a snoring FM that suddenly switched from a beautiful music to an Adult Contemporary (AC) format). Salant and Hansen must have been on downers at the time, because they neglected playing some of the biggest hits at the time, in favor of playing sleepy AC favorites.
And for years after, they slapped themselves on the back for this infamous and over rated format change.
