Maybe the Star should start a new forum called "Flirt It Out" or "Let's Get a Room."
People would probably talk about the issues of the day on it and people trying to flirt would complain about them not flirting.

As has been discussed here, significant among WIBC's alleged improvements is the absence of Paul Harvey's News And Comment(s) and The Rest Of The Story(s).

For those in the southeastern part of our area, WLW AM 700 is the ideal replacement. Those to whom Louisville is handier can try WHAS AM 840. The Terre Haute affiliate is WTHI-FM 99.9, but since it's FM, it doesn't have the range of a 50,000 watt AM station, the kind that WIBC was up until a couple of days ago. But in the western part of the state, Paul's originating station, WGN AM 720, is the best choice.

The best thing about these stations' broadcasts is this: there's a LOT fewer commercials, in general, and during the Paul Harvey reports, in particular. During the midday News And Comment, WLW airs one count 'em, ONE local commercial between Page Two and Page Three. WIBC, when I listened to it, would typically play about 15, half of them WIBC's own self-promotions.

Another good thing: while the morning report comes on pretty much everywhere at 8:30, the midday report used to come on anywhere from 12:17 to 12:23 on WIBC, while the preferred affiliates (like WLW and WGN) flip the switch at 12:05-12:07.

As for The Rest Of The Story, the same stations play it, but there's nothing like a suggested schedule. WGN airs it at about 7:50 PM and 3:20 AM (repeat); WLW plays it at 6:25 AM; and WHAS at 6:15 PM. I'm pretty sure WIBC tried to pack all the commercial insertions they possibly could pack into the space between "You know what the news is; in a minute [or three], you're going to hear, The Rest, Of The Story" and "And now, The Rest, Of The Story".

I'd actually contemplated making some telephone calls and warning some of the advertisers that they weren't getting much for their advertising dollar, and that as long as they continued to advertise on the overdiluted WIBC, they'd get no customer dollars from me. But now that the handwriting's so plainly on the wall, it shouldn't be long before the advertisers follow the listeners who will follow the programming to whichever other station picks it up.

The world is not watching how we handle the Clippers crisis. They are focusing on the upcoming Kardashian wedding.
