I have not listened to the show in a long time because of Jack Harris and his treatment of Sharon plus he is ignorant about many of the topics they present. Ted is no better. I have been listening to the Wall Street station I think Clear Channel owns it but I couldn't listen to Jack anymore. I saw him many years ago on his tv show, but he seemed like a totally different person than the one on the radio. The reason I wondered about Sharon is because I did't change the station one morning. Sharon you are great and this many be a blessing, frankly, I don't know how you tolerated that unprofessional, mean-spirted Jack Harris for so long. Ted is also a small minded man who makes ignorant comments about various subjects in the news today.

I feel like I'm the Last to Know!! For whatever reason, I've been listening more sporadically the last month. When Sharon wasn't on (and no mention of her), I thought she must be on vacation. Finally decided to do search, since nothing was said on 970 site.

I am VERY sad! Sharon's melodic voice and good sense was perfect counterpoint to Jack & Ted. I realized today how much I miss her. I'm glad others have mentioned the 930 option. I will check it out!

we've been on vacation and when I turned my favorite program on in the morning, nothing was mentioned about Sharon, like being on vacation or whatever....wot the heck happened??? We miss Sharon's level head with the two nit-wits. Where are you Sharon? Let us know!

I cannot believe they let you go. You were the best part of the show! I like Ted too, but Jack is another story. He is so ignorant and narrow minded. Besides that, all he does is brag about his vacations, the people he knows and the expensive restaurants he frequents. Like, who cares? Iíve tuned out 970 since youíve been gone. I hope the show falls flat on its face now.

Will miss the contrast Sharon brought to the program. Conservative vs. Liberal, Male vs. Female,Lack of sense vs Common sense, Beer lover vs Animal lover, etc. This is the reality of this industry that Sharon choose to be in and can happen to anyone at anytime. However Clear Channel could have done a better job with the transition.

Sharon,

You need a morning TV show. You have the face and bod that would be perfect for TV. KJeep your head up. ALthough you went on your ultra lib rants every now and then, you were the class of the show. Maybe they let you go, so that they can bring you back as the beautiful woman of the week - You coul dbe that EVERY week!

I enjoy listening to this show and I thought Sharon was either on vacation or sick. But today I realized she was no longer thee. I'm sorry but without Sharon, this radio show is no good and I'm sure Harris and Ted are dying to have her back, but the big bucks speak and I guess they needed to shave something off. I would have preferred Ted be let go. He is late for work, is out sick too many times, and is a pervert who knows too much about porn.
i am and always have been an arch conservative,all of my 53 years, and i really loved the way SHARON rounded out the guy group! She was really funny, when she disagreed with the boys on certain political subjects and also seemed like a very likeable/compassionate person!!!!!!!!

I shall not miss you Sharon or your really clever questions and remarks that could come from your mouth before your brain was engaged. I am sure management made the right decision. I can say I once again really enjoy AM Tampa Bay with Jack/Ted.

Enough is enough. The mornings are not the same without you, Sharon. The new person does not cut it. Voice is irritating, too. Hope you find a new station.

Sharon was an honest person, I did not agree with all of her positions, but as I said, she was honest. Jack, is an egotistical blow-hard and I no longer listen to the morning show - Good Job - I hope your advertisers are happy . . .

I too thought that Sharon Taylor was a great fit for AM Tampa Bay. I was very sorry to hear that they let her go. I emailed the producer to ask if they would bring Sharon back & he told me that it was a cost cutting move but then they brought in Allyson Taylor who couldn't hold a candle to Sharon. Allyson was also let go. I don't think there were too many tears lost over her. Perhaps if enough of us fans of Sharon send the producer of the show asking that they bring Sharon back maybe they'll take it under consideration. The producers' name is Ethan Youker his email address is: ethanyouker@clearchannel.com
