This new morning host,(oddball) chip franklin, should be sent packing back to the east coast. He is a disconnected, slurring, racing, BORING talk freak! I refuse to follow his stupid banter! And the boring women he engages to chat his nonsense, is SOOOOO BORING. His topics are total Crap! He has a "smorgasboard of Crap! His old cronies from the east are a BORE! His interviews STINK! His topics are BS!

Cliff Albert, you lost it, bringing in this LOSER! And why didn't you keep Dave Mason, instead of that ladonna harvey! But then you're cliff, that explains it! Anyway, no listen to your crapola, Can't take the BS, thanks anyway!

Was thoroughly surprised when turning on KOGO AM at 6:00 a.m. to no longer find Dave Mason on. What the heck was anyone thinking to let him depart the station. I didn't even know who the man was that was on. He was boring, disconnected, messing up his words, and a terrible format besides. I have been a faithful listener for over 37 years in San Diego, but no longer. GOODBYE KOGO in the a.m.

I know its not from SD (its from L.A.) but Bill Handel on KFI 640am is fun... as well as the show on 1053 FM in the mornings.

What happened to Dave M. on KOGO?! Another (and boRING too) talk show with a guy who engages in totally meaningless conversations with callers? And, not ot mention the type of callers ... Started listening when I first moved to S.D. over 10 years ago, but no more ... You've made a BIG mistake in changing the mornings.

We are running out of options for morning talk that is based in San Diego. Listening to an LA station is about worthless if you want to hear local news.

What was KOGO thinking! Gave Chip a try for a few days, but have already grown tired of it. Rick Roberts is a better option on KFMB, as long as he does not lock onto a topic for days in a row.

Hiya Matt,

I like most of the KFI hosts, they are entertaining, and LA news is usually more interesting anyway.

any talk radio turns me off if they keep beatin the same topic into the ground...especially if it is some dumb smokescreen story diverting attention from more important issues.

cheers!

Talk radio is on the decline. The current crop of talk show hosts are not as entertaining. Dennis Miller has a show on another AM station. Boy, it is bad.

Sean Hannity is too repetitive. All you hear is Hilliary, Hilliary and more Hilliary. Even conservatives are turning him off.

Roger Hedgecock has his moments. Some days his topics are interesting, and other days it's boring. He is going national in a month.

Michael Savage is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. His up and down mood swings are costing him listeners. I don't think he will last long on radio, given his mental state.

John and Ken of KFI AM in Los Angeles have been on the air for over a decade. They chose hot button topics that keep listeners interested.

Rick Roberts is not of afraid of voicing his opinions. He's blunt and to the point. Listeners like that. He has a shot of becoming the next talk show host of going national.

Talk radio is a numbers game. The market will decide who is successful or a failure.

KNX 1070 news from LA is a good alternative if there's too much boredom from any paticular time slot.

KFI also has John Zigler, he's pretty good, and of course Leo Laporte the tech guy on weekends. And of course KFI has better news than KOGO. KFMB has better news than KOGO too! Coast to Coast is the saving grace for KOGO.

From 3pm on I switch among KFMB, KOGO, KFI.

KFMB has the excellent Mark Levine show 7-9PM and Jerry Doyle after him is ok.

But as far as the AM shows, it may just be the Classical station on FM 90.7, or maybe Rick Roberts, or KNX, occasionally Bill Handel, but his crew can be irritating! After 9am it's hasta la vista until after 3pm.

You can read more about Chip on the Baltimore forum.

I don't care for the Chipster. His sidekicks interject frequently, adding to already frenetic discourse.
Dave Mason will be sorely missed. What happened there!?
Anyway, I like Conservative Talk shows. However, I wish more of them would shut up while their callers are speaking. Why bother allowing them air time if the hosts are going to talk over what they have to say? Michael Savage is the absolute worst about this. Rick Roberts and Roger Hedgecock are pretty good about respecting their callers.

Cliff Albert IS THE PROBLEM. This idiot should NOT be a Program Director for anything higher than a college radio station. He brings in his "buddies" - like that bible slapper, Sean Hannity wannabe Mark Larson and now Chip the dope Franklin. This is amateur radio in San Diego and apparently Clear Channel is clueless about Cliff Albert's incompetence. When will CC catch on? Then again, what competition do they have? KFMB has a broadcast signal that craps out 10 miles from the transmitter and Robert droans on about the same ol crap day after day.

For those that think Bill Handel is hot ... Hesus! Get a life! He's the biggest Jerk on radio and a notorious product pimp ... if he gets it for free or has a financial "piece of the action:, he'll pimp it. His fellow Mega Product Whore is Leo Laporte who is nothing but an Apple Pimp, Bought and Paid for. Ask this "tech guy" any computer or tech question and his answer will always be "buy and Apple", "buy a Mac". Some lady called and asked what dog to buy for her son, Leo the pimp replies "buy a Mac" (sic). These two con artists should be banned from radio for blatant whoring.

The ONLY decent Talk Show guys on the radio in the So Cal area are Rush Limbaugh's show, Larry Elder in LA and Glenn Beck where every you can find him.

As for KOGO .... lose Cliff Albert, before you lose ALL the rest of your listeners.

I am Relenting! I applaud Chip Franklin! He is doing an excellent job! I now enjoy tuning in the AM to hear what he's talking about now! He actually "gets it" about politicians, and regulation, and Founding Father principles!

So, Chip, sorry for the slams earlier! Keep up the good work! Happy Listener!

Now what can be done about that boring deb welch? News at kogo has always been Boring and redundant!

I have never bothered to go on any discussion board - for anything!
This guy is an outrage. He shows his ignorance all the time. I've never heard anyone so 'low' using up air, or t.v. time. It's offensive to listen to him, but there is no other reception for me. This is it. There is one positive posting here, and it was probably written by 'Chip'(even has a dumb name). This sort of person is fine for the East Coast - this is their humor/lingo/venacular. He obviously does not like the West Coast, so why are we having to be subjected to this? He is old school, East Coast Blue Collar Worker Mentality (which there is nothing wrong with that - but we are in S. Cal. with enlightened, intelligent, well-educated people!). I hope he has a one year contract that has to be honored and then he can transition back to where people can relate to him - where he can have an audience - on the East Coast. If I wanted to wake up to this every morning, I WOULD MOVE TO PHILLY!!!!!!!!!! SPARE US

How old are you anyway? Some so-called Old school is better informed and thought out than what you were babbling about!

If you would actually listen to him, instead of blocking yourself by something else, you'd understand! He is a Freedom person, a person who who seems to understand what our great founding fathers of this republic declared. That is old school??!! If you think so, how about trying your life out in some other area on the planet? Where some authority would take over your hut! Now that's old school!

In the morning I don't want to hear a talk show. I want the news. I've been a faithful listener for about 15 years. Now I've switched to FM 87.7 which is Fox channel 6 news and starts at 5 am.
First you got rid of Mark Larson, then Dave Mason and now me!

I listened to Jack Rice who was apparently filling in for Chip Franklin this week. This guy is a pro, very smart and it was a pleasure to listen. He made me want to know more. Hope he gets his own show.
