. That's 3-5 minutes that could have been used to talk about a hockey matchup, NFL news, the MLB playoffs, whatever. Simmer is pretty bad for this (he has seemed to have toned it down, to his credit), but he hasn't been the only one in the station to fall into the trap of thinking people actually care about
. And getting boring fast? You can switch speeds talking about sports and make it fresh. Guests, debates, previews...
That is not dead air. That's probably more interesting than any of the on-topic stuff. And what is 3-5 minutes anyways? They have 4 hours to talk about whatever bit of sports nonsense you are interested in. They would have even more time without the phone interviews with meaningless and unimportant guests they have on in the afternoon.

So having a Chinese guy on the radio talking about golf is now racist? What? Or replaying his "Hu Tang Long Bang Tony Chang and Jimmy Yip Golf Academy and Smorgasbord" sound bite? How is that racist.
And you just made my point by saying what does and doesn't belong on a station owned by a massive media conglomerate. Being owned by that conglomerate means it now has to be a squeaky clean,
station. You're the typical white person who likes to be offended so he can write and complain about it. No wonder the station has gotten dull.
And again, about Mendez, I am sure he is a fine sports person, but his voice doesn't suit the radio, especially for 4 hours.
