I heard Jack Rice last night on KOGO after the debate. Didn't he do stuff for KOGO from the Conventions? I love this guy. Finally finaly finally, somebody at KOGO who isn't in the tank for the Republicans and completely blind to everything else. Will he honestly talk about the issues? Sure sounded like it last night.

Re: Chip Franklin

To Whom It May Concern:

Who is this Chip Franklin? I listen to the Coast to Coast evening show, and too often have the misfortune of being woken up in the mornings by his shrill, piercing, treble voice, which forces me to change stations. I dislike Rick Roberts on KFMB, but listening to him is infinitely preferable than remaining tuned to KOGO.

Isn't there an EQ thing you can do to make his voice less annoying? Although that wouldn't do anything about the content.

Chip Franklin stands in the very back of the lengthy line of Obama bashers. The difference between Limbaugh, Hedgecock, Roberts, Savage and Mr. Franklin is that the other radio hosts don't WHINE. Mr. Franklin whines incessantly, repeatedly, and annoyingly, and is constantly spewing his off-the-top-of-his-head (as opposed to well thought-out) opinions. The result is broadcasting drivel.

All broadcasters have healthy egos, and the aforementioned ones have more than healthy ones. But they also have accomplishments that (at least in part) offset these. Other than losing weight, does Mr. Franklin have any broadcasting, humanitarian of public service accomplishments to warrant the prodigious ego he so prominently displays? If so, they pale before his pathetic on-air performance.

Chip Franklin is a terrible interviewer. He talks over people, stammers and stutters. He is not a good listener, which is a prerequisite for being a good interviewer. He doesn't handle call-ins well. And his attempts at humor are pathetically unfunny.

I see (from a Google search) that I am not alone in finding Mr. Franklin unlistenable, Apparently, his former Baltimore audience did. I suppose one of the few smart things Mr. Franklin has done is refrain from California bashing, now that he lives here.

Surely in this tight economy, it is possible to find people who are actually good at what they do. Chip Franklin simply isn't.

At the opposite end of the spectrum is LaDonna Harvey, who is professional and has a pleasant voice.

I thought Jack Rice couldn't put together a single clear introduction the whole time he was on the radio for KOGO. He would always start with what I thought was a topic and then recreate his point another 3 times. His information he clearly got from the internet and blogs. He rarely had a salient point or clever insight. Very disappointing. Sorry to see that some people actually get paid for what he did.......

Agree with all the other posts: Franklin is awful! His jokes aren't funny, his voice is annoying, he's out of step with today's world -- he lives in the '80s. Can you imagine sitting through one of his stand-up "comedy" bits??? What a nightmare!

chip is terrible.
i came back from iraq and all the radio was changed. some of my presets were now spanish and then chip in my first preset. terrible. a warmongerer ready to go to war but a real chickenhawk, probably jerks off while watching 24. so blantantly republican, rush wannabee but claims he's independent. give me a break.

has people on and then talks all over them, why bother having guests? seems like a real a-hole.

I have been listening to KOGO for probably 30 years. In large part its a very solid station to listen for news and information. Roger is probably one of the best people in the country regarding the state of political affairs and understanding the issues at hand.
Chip Franklin sadly does not seem to fit in well and continues to amaze me with some of his comments that lack logic, which is sad; he seems like he is really smart sometimes, but his apparent liberal bent does not allow him to think from a stand point of right and wrong instead of from his feelings. And I wish Dr. Laura would be replaced with someone who is more in tune with what is going on in San Diego or at least a program that more of us can relate to. I dont have a great deal of desire to listen to somebody elses problems.

PROBLEM: KOGO is "boring" in the mornings and some don't like Rush, etc., etc. SOLUTION? Turn off your radio and read a book, study in school, college, find a JOB (oops...) BE SOMEBODY, listen to NPR (YUK!), OR...TA Daaa... buy your OWN station and run it as profitably as KOGO does.

I already posted a comment to Rufina...but will add that one hour of Chip is more than enough and I have to turn off radio, for fear of loosing my love of a world where everyone is a fool except him...so he thinks! I find him repetitious and predictable and esp. on the economy and his ideas of free markets and how well they work. My husband is retired from brokerage business and says he is full of the stuff left over at Del Mar after the race. Deliver us, please.

I used to like the old radio programs on KOGO until that lame bozo Chip "Shithead" took over KOGO and held us hostage in the AM. Now I listen to KFI which has better programming. Sad. Dr. Laura and Rush need to go as well they are terrible. Bring back Tom Leykis and Dick and Skibba!

The worst show is Ladonna Harvey. Can you say total hypocrite. And I know a guy who is a big fan and loves her show...and thinks she's totally hot, I don't know why. but he exchanges vulgar emails with her and nude photos, he showed me the nude photos of her. Some of them look like they were taken in the radio studio. And I hear she is engaged, why would someone do something like that when their career would be ruined. Just goes to show you, everyone on talk radio is a hypocrite. That's why I don't listen anymore. You think you find someone with half a brain then you find out they are a nasty human being.

I've listen to KOGO since Michael Reagan back in the early 90's and I've learned and enjoyed most of its programming, but adding Chip Franklin in the a.m. has got to be one of the stations worst decisions. Judging by some of the previous comments I see that I'm not alone on how awful Chip is....especially as his bias comments on the Occupy movement bring out the worst in him..and there's quite a bit.... I am forced to listen to anything else but chip in the mornings..I just tune in to catch the traffic and news at the top of the hour...KOGO please, PLEASE replace Chip with anybody else...LaDonna would be ten times better Chip if u read this, believe me when I say you trully SUCK sincerely MARTIN
