WIBX today in anticipation of Monday. Can't wait to hear Keeler again. I listed to TOOT now, and with each passing day get more irritated. Keeler is experienced, has a better radio voice, is better acquainted with local topics and material that Piersma will ever be. The only thing is AM. I've never listened to AM in my life! Well, change is good.

He'll do well, because he always has in the past. He's probably burnt his last bridge, so he'll be on good behavior.

The only irony of this entire thing is, he now becomes main rival with his boy, Mark Piersma. They will be the only local morning radio talk.

The younger crowd doesn't know AM, I agree, but they voted in the President, and look where that is getting us!!!

I don't think he is going to do much stuff like that. He might get a little crazy doing interviews, but I don't think WIBX hired him to do his old circus show.
does anyone care that bad

Im betting by the level you harp on it youll bee the first ahole idiot pranking the show. Or do you just limit your level of "fzcking ahole" to the internet greybox deal?
I've been hearin him for 10 years and now matter what your blowhole modulates it won't change the fact that where ever that guy plugs in his microphone he blows holes in other shows' numbers. Is he the greatest in the world? Nope. Does everyone listen? Nope. I can't listen to it every day but I can't listen to ANY of these idiots all day. You could all do a lot worse and if any thing is clear from here and radio net some people are REALLY in a tizzy and worried because if that weren't true you wouldn't be here blabbing about how he hangs up on aholes like you. Hi! If you reply then I guess you know who you are then thanks in advance!

Not true at all. When was the last time he had good ratings? It's been MANY years since the guy was a factor.

He was the only one at The Drive getting any type of ratings. That station, at the time would have shut down if it weren't for Keeler. He's better and knows more about the Mohawk Valley than Gomez & Dave. He's not as annoying as Bob & Tom and talk about not being a factor, who are Hunter and Josh? They sound like two kids in my son's kindergarten class.

As opposed to the fake, scripted calls Keeler has already been busted for?

Gotta love radio! Ed's actually terrified of how AM radio's about to make his WOUR & K-Rock morning shows completely irrelevant in the Utica market! Josh, Turner, Gomez & Dave are all very open about their hatred of the Utica area. No one in Utica wants to hear that. And I'm not saying that as a bitter radio employee. I'm saying that as a Utican. Love it or hate it, it's our home.

So the story about pictures from the UticaSux site and Keeler's website having the same EXIF information isn't true?

99 percent of all people do not know or care about EXIF information. The only thing that matters is whether people find him entertaining enough to listen to his show.

The ratings will determine if he is successful, not this messge board.

Why would there need to be "fake" calls?

What's wrong with asking where the $25,000 loan from the city went?

What's wrong with asking whatever happened to the "repayment plan"?

If those topics are off limits just say so up front.
