Yes, car stereos have AM radio. In fact, WIBX is one of the most listened to radio stations in the area:

Sorry, Ian, I can't disagree with the previous poster. While I appeciate your tip on Keeler and your opinion, how long has it been since he had a successful run? I no longer find the "next big thing" that Keeler does to be newsworthy, any more than Hank Brown's next move. Hank may be a legend in his own mind but he has not been much of a success in radio for a long, long time. I enjoy news/talk/info., but how will a softer version of his old shows appeal to the multitudes, especially on AM?
Bill was the only one who got any sort of ratings at his last gig. If it went by ratings, the Drive would have shut down. I think Bill's been pretty successful. Besides Heather, who can't be from this area or is just breaking balls, most people know who he is. I know that doesn't make him a huge success but there are only a handful of people around here who people recognize. Bill is one of them. Finally, it will be refreshing when you actually hear a local morning host that actually knows something about the Mohawk Valley and also supports it.

That's right! See, it HAS been a long time since he's had success. So I'm not the only one with that "opinion."

Bzzzzzzt! Wrong! I ask because someone I know knows him and didn't remember where I had heard the name before until later. So there Mr Pants Too Tight maybe for that now I will listen just to hear what all the drama is about with your guys!

If it's a comedy morning show I am thinking you'd probably need to be MUCH MUCH funnier than that or they would dump your call. That's just 3rd grader blabber actually. Sorry.

Were the ratings any good in the morning anyway? Limbaugh and the other conservatives get all the ratings on that station.

I haven't caught the show yet I'm in NY but downstate. I'll check on iyt when I'm visiting next week. I can see how Keeler's going lower key would make less of a draw for certain types but so far as I've heard everyone is listening so far and they said it was good. He's and WIBX have a good opportunity for themselves here if for nothing more than the mashup of Keeler and WIBX. WIBX was the news station and Keeler is the biggest morning draw they ever saw there so I'm betting it will be a good run this time unless the jackals nipping at his heels make inroads into TownSquare which with the exception of one person currently there.. is unlikely.

Someday, I expect to see an example of just how far Keeler's fans will go to prove what loyal fans do when their favorite host is unfairly attacked. Bill would never have anything to do with that but trust Hob.. enough crafty an very discreet smart people are upset about the past even after Bill long ago blew it off. It's all fun and games until your station needs to claim a million on their insurance for repairs.
