They should of kept Laurie and fired the clowns on the morning show. They are boring and dumb.

I've listened to Laurie since she started at KOME and she's always been one of my favorites.I've nothing against Chris Jackson (he's better than Greg Kinh) but miss the sparkle that Laurie added. Big mistake, Clear Channel!!

I will miss your Love for the Beatles and playing their music all the time.
I will miss your eletters to KFOX listeners...they were personal and very imformative
I will miss your cheerful attitude, even when filling in on a holiday.

Clear Channel has made many boneheaded decisions like this.

They have many stations where they fired everyone and all the music is done through a central location. You get a computerised voice that tells you the name of the song and artist.

I try not to listen to any Clear Channel station.

I thought Laurie Roberts was pretty much the best DJ at KFOX. I always enjoyed her interaction with both Greg Kihn and Tim Jeffries. She always had interesting stores about different rock artists and had great taste in music. I hate Clear Channel. If this is indicative of the way they run their company, I doubt they'll be in business for long!

How shortsighted of the corporate morons to unleash a great DJ/announcer like Roberts. Now when she works miracles for some innane station in East Bumfu$@ they're going to act shocked. I hope our classic rock venue survives the brilliance of it's higher ups.

Laurie will take alot of personality from that station.She is now with a good family. I can remember names like her's,Dana Jang and Jona Denz made a station you wanted to listen to becauuse these people were at the controls when you turned on the radio. Good Luck and welcome.Please try to play some of the same music you used to; if the bosses let you.
