<quoted text>Short lived? Over thirty years of making money. Millions of dollars worth.

Some people like Keeler and Super Mario are happy making a TV show that's lucky to clear $200. That's grubbing in the dirt for scraps. Other people make multi-million dollar deals.

I know which team I'd bet on.
Not sure who Mario is and I don't personally care for Keeler's TV or radio show but it's a huge leap above anything that comes out of the Adk Bank Building. Let's face it, Ken got lucky when he sold 97.9 & 105.5 to CC and bought them back so cheap. Millions? That was a one time windfall. I ask again, what kind of monthly ad revenue are you doing over there now? It can't be anything significant. Mark is a non issue. Kiss is the only thing with any ratings and the Krew sounds horribly sloppy. They're getting listeners by default and you can't turn that into any sustainable revenue.

Who even worries about Keeler this much but you Grant? Yau have an axe to grind with Keeler McBride... and Doc Jerry Krause? How long do you think your kiddie station is going to survive you being ridiculed and exposed for the piece of shuit you are? ROFLMAO!! Your whole "empire" isn't worth a million who exactly do you think you are impressing? Comon lets hear about any "million dollar deals"?
That coke has rotted out your brain Grant Roaser of Roser Communications! ROFLMAO!!! WOW!!! When grant gets snorting that sht he suddenly thinks hes the fifty bazillion dollar man!

Fat little balding Grant Roser of the dirtbags at "Roser communications >Empire< is a legend in his own coke addled brain! If he's so rich you would think hed be able to do something about his appearence and 15 year+ coke habit!

The problem is that there is no clearly defined purpose for the show. Part of the blame for that falls on TownSquare's management, but they're just going along with what Keeler promised.
The crux of the issue is that Keeler can't do a straight talk show. Ironically, it's for the same two reasons his old sidekick Mark is such an embarrassment on WUTQ. First, they don't have any real education. That's not necessarily a drawback if a person is intellectually curious, but neither Piersma and Keeler have that trait. They simply don't have the knowledge base, either through formal education or self-directed inquiry, to have a clue about most issues. Listen carefully and you'll hear it whenever they're challenged. They'll immediately change the subject or fall back on an easily remembered boilerplate response.
The second factor isn't exclusive to Piersma or Keeler, but it's a death knell for anyone doing interviews- they won't ask hard questions. The reason why should be obvious to anyone who's had contact with the local "insiders".
The shame of it is that there's already someone in the TownSquare studio who could do an amazing show if she was allowed to- Kristine Bellino. She's smart, well educated, and has had some incredible life experiences. Her politics are a little lefty for my tastes, but she's not an empty suit. Get her talking about something she's passionate about and the sheer depth of knowledge she brings to the discussions is impressive.
To stick someone like that into a supporting role for "personalities" like Justin and Keeler is just a waste.
This seems on target. So far the interviews have been pretty cut and dried. There's no real back and forth or insight.

Gran is broke now I have a friend who works for him that says he treats everyone like trash. Keeler is wierd but people who know him know he def dont treat people like Roser does. Roser takes money from the Stanley people and openly calls em faggs. Even his own employees despise him all the money in the world aint squat if nobody can stand you cept mabye his wife now that he blew his load on a house. All those people are just an example of the crap that passed for "brilliance" in ooootica. Let them all burn none will change they deserve to fester in shizt.

I shoudve said --Grant is broke now I have a friend who works for him that says he treats everyone like trash. He runs around yelling and bullying people his mood is usally mean to the point those employees talk about him often and what an asshole he is to work for hes mean and ultra arrogant in person I met him once and he was ok but you believe me that whole staff hates him behind his back just like Whitesboro.
There --- thats my contribution to this but I think its going to be EPIC because a lot of people just got wise all at once about him being a piece of shit of a litteman under that thin skin.

WIBX is no longer a news station as they resort to hiring Keeler.Never thought this would ever happen.News is not a joke and WIBX proves they are desperate to survive with the hiring of Keeler.

It's crazy how these people have gone off on the Rosers based on absolutely no evidence. Any criticism of Keeler's dopey show is coming from them? WTF?

Cool good for you then from what I KNOW you are maybe the one person whoi feels that way in person or you are him. Its not like I care but you wont tell me what I KNOW I just dont want to start naming the names and stories. All these people didnt come out of nowhere with all those tales I never even thought about it until this post showed up and I read the dirt and it meshes EXACTLY with what I know. I KNOW so maybe you can fool anyone else but I KNOW! This is no secret the more I think about it the more I remember what a resentful turd they all say he is.
So what do you do for him? Crap radio? Corny tv commercials? Sell crap radio ads? Answer phones and bill collect when?

Someone is trying to stop any criticism of Keeler with the classic Deflect, Deny, and Distract approach.

Somebody offers some criticism of Keeler's show?

OMFG! YOU'RE A COKE HEAD MONSTER WHO EATS BABIES!!!!

Another guy writes a measured analysis of exactly why the show is terrible. The response?

YOU'RE A LOSER AND A CROOK AND CHILD MOLESTER AND YOU WILL PAY AND WE WILL ALL DESTROY YOU!!!!

Does anyone really think it's a coincidence that even the slightest critique of the Keeler disaster is met by an attack...on someone else?

That was what started it if you read these posts they were crying about the midget keeler that wasnt too far off the track but now he sent his minions to trash Frank McBride and Krause and thats rank foul so a lot of dots got connected once these people started talking and finding out GR has been stabbing backs LONG before he hired Mark. Keelers show is a little dopey yes but as told to me that was what made everyone realize all these same ways of saying things online match just what GR and his wimpass radio "empire" of no name stations employees keep saying and manipulating.
Im a good student of details and remembering them so while Im here making sure topix stays on everyones mind Im going to do the same here its true. Just another problem with the little fishbowl called OOOOtica.

Not thrilled with it. I sounds like the last few wordsa of a dieing radio personality. I sure hope he turns it around I really used to like him. He has lost something, I haven't heard the old Keeler in a while.

Nice. Glad you think that that will make things easier. Somehow Keeler knew he would be starting that stupid show this month years ago and forced Roser to start taking shots at Krause and now McBride AND Keeler righty? Boy you are too sharp for us! The only thing Keeler did without even knowing because hes an idiot is hsow us where all the problems have been coming from the last six years. Good luck with that one. Tell Grant to pack it in and save all those "millions" he has in the bank. That won't be much help here.

Keeler is washed up! He doesn't take risks anymore he just exists. He used to interesting and you didnt know what was going to happen next, now it's just boring. Nothing happens on his show the same boring people Barry, Griffo made his standard appearance. I listened to Keeler everyday morning in the late 90's but I am afraid he's on his way out, come on people he's on LOCAL AM Radio. He's like a sports player who doesn't know when to quit the game and stays around a few more years and is remembered as washed up, instead of leaving on top of your their game. Keeler either step i up or quit cause you are starting to embarass yourself.
