The sports stations aren't there to build interest in hockey. They're there to talk about what the callers want to discuss. Obviously they can push topics in a certain direction but if every caller called up and wanted to talk Flyers, they would be forced to do so. They go with what gains them the best ratings.

The morning show appeals to the average bro driving to work that has a limited knowledge about sports. He may have been flipping back and forth between the game and whatever his wife is watching and didnt catch the end so he tunes in to Angelo in the morning on his drive to work. he gets a little sports talk that he can carry over to work but also gets some humor since he doesnt care to listen to sports talk all morning.
