I was so disappointed to hear of the firing of Reese. I listened to him at work. It made the morning go by. He was funny and crazy at the same time. With the way things are today we needed a laugh or two. Now it is politics, politics, politics. I got to know the people that called in too. It was a family. I will be switching to find something with more rumor and a talk show host that cares!!!!!!!!!!

This is unbelievable!! You keep Tommy Taxes, the felon who no one listens too on the morning show (7 - 10 AM), and fire Reese, who was a breath of fresh air on your station!! What a stupid RACIST decision!!!! You should have placed Reese in the 7 - 10 AM slot and fired the felon??

i grew to really enjoy and look forward to hearing Hopkins in the morning. Honest and raw talk not the bull you hear from the 6 to 10 phoney. i use to listen from 10 to 12 and then rush on and off till the king arrived at 3 to 7. had the radio on at home and in the car now i have to find something to fill the morning hours from 10 to 12. Do us a favor and dump the ass kisser on from 6 to 10.
