It is time to make your predictions. Will there be any major changes to the morning radio ratings with Keeler back on the airwaves?

I am sure that there will be many new listeners to WIBX from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. due to curiosity, but will they chase away their long-time listeners? I would be willing to bet that they will have a net increase to their ratings over the next several months. I also predict that his show will not be the crazy circus show that he has done in the past.

Does anyone else have any predictions?

Maybe he will bring Stefan back as his new sidekick.

We can only hope. Those morons on wutq need to be handed pink slips. That show ain't worth the price of the grid bill for powering the antenna.

With such a horribly written rant, you have the nerve to criticize anyone?

Tomorrow will be telling. I expect Bill will kick things up a notch and try to keep it interesting to attract listeners in the 35-54 age group while trying not to lose the older listeners. It will be interesting to see how many in that age group actually switch their radio to AM. I am curious and will be listening tomorrow morning. AM in the AM will be something new for me...

Good Luck Bill!

Will the new Keeler show be the same kind of guest drive talk show with a focus on local politics? For many that is the appeal of "Talk of the Town" on WUTQ. Does Keeler have the same connection with all of the local politicians? Will they come on his show? What's the format?

With "Talk of the Town" obviously neither of the hosts is an expert, or even close, in most of what they discuss. I hate it when Elias goes to the internet and takes what are actually slanted reporting and then portrays it as the truth. He also seems to parse every word before he speaks in order to try to sound intelligent. Doesn't always work. These and other shortcomings aside, it is appealing to me because they act as a forum for people on the inside of many of the stories I see on tv or read in the paper. Those people are able to speak in more than just sound bites.

If Keeler can't provide that then listeners won't tune in. There are plenty of places to tune in for morning "hijinx".

I don't think so. Stefan seems to have gone off the deep as of late.

Keeler hasn't been interesting in years. he makes a show out others that are down on their luck. Lance-the Virgin guy, Stefan, Fred, and Barb the lady loosing her house.

I like Bill when he make up his own comedy ( like crank calls) and didn't exploite others misfortunes.

Good or bad Keeler at WIBX is going to devastate the also-ran radio shows and stations. This must be why they are so worried at all the other stations even today's startup show had everyone listening.

As expected, Keeler mentioned the Stefan issue in his 1st half hour. He shouldn't have even acknowledged it. Keep it classy!

Stefan was a guy who would turn up on the show but he started getting arrested for mental stuff like pulling fire alarms. The reason he probably mentioned it is because the Keeler Haters were trying to trash him about it on his Facebook page.

I was really surprised Bill wasn't showing more support for Remington Arms. His hometown is going to dry up and blow away and he doesn't seem too concerned.

It's just a few hundred people losing their jobs. Why would he care?

That's sarcasm, by the way. It's going to gut Ilion. If they actually go through with relocating the plant the follow on effects will be devastating.
