QFT. It's brutal the kind of garbage we get on the air. A half-hour of Tony Greco? Shean Donovan? Lee Versage? The terminally whiny about Toronto AJ Jakubec?

GET ME SOME PROFESSIONALS WITH A WIDE BREADTH OF KNOWLEDGE instead of the insipid pap we've been getting the past while. I was so exasperated with Jakubec I turned to a TO station and it was shocking how much more professional they are...talking hockey with experts, scouts and GMs around the league, then talking baseball, other sports issues and it wasn't bush league! Learn from that Team 1200!
I know its not perfect and its very easy to bash the team 1200 but some think it would just be simple for them to switch there format hire a ton of new people the fact is its not that simple for them to do that.I understand people are upset and i am with all those who are made now with that said email ctv media and then maybe if enough email them they will see people are not happy with the current programming.

I've noticed that they've landed some pretty good interviews this week, and not the same tired recycled, Jim Jerome-connected/Jason York-connected guests either

The morning show has had Jay Feaster and Jonathan Toews on this week and the scratches have Dmitry Chesnokov (the Puck Daddy reporter that has been covering the plane crash non-stop since it happened) on right now.

So, props to the Team for getting their act in gear and landing quality interviews for a change.
it's probably because they changed ownership TBH. how else would they get toews...

if ypur upset with the programming email and tell them off i did and everybody tried to tell me off but really it didn't bother me i judt wanted them to know i was a little bit unhappy.

they are getting better though now. and i liked the dan patrick show.

jim rome is actually good when he talks sports. he's smart and has great people come on his show. most people just don't like it because it's football basketball and baseball but he likes hockey you just have to ask him hockey questions.

I really enjoy the morning show, especially the 7:30 to 8:30 slot. Great for a drive in to work

Toews was doing a media tour to promote the Canadian Tire All-Star thing he's involved with. The interview wasn't really a "get" for the station.

The morning show has been pretty good this week. The Dorion interview this morning was excellent. They should continue the trend of interviews. It's a lot more interesting than listening to them talk about current events or their eating/grooming habits.

And I'm not sure why, but I don't mind Jungle's nonsense anymore.

Actually looking forward to PMG's return next week.

I think that TGOR has not given Jerome as much leeway to hijack the program with his endless manderings and have brought in better guests which leads to more interesting sports discussions,rather than getting side tracked on one of his pointless digressions for half the show.

Jerome on a tighter leash and more relevant guests mean a better show.

Oh man, I am pissed that Abbot is gone and we have to listen to Jakubek call 67's games. How bad and amateur is that guy at calling games?

The Team 1200 is a complete joke. Thank god I have satellite radio in my SUV

Ummm Jakubek was doing 67's games for awhile before Abbot, then he got hired by the Oil King's. Now he is back in Ottawa and got his old gig back. He is better and he has been doing it longer.

i'm only in favour of TSN taking over if:

-they are really only there to fill in some of the off-peak spots with good NHL or national sports coverage instead of guys like greco and sportscall and some of the other low quality american or local interest shows filling those slots

-if TSNradio just means getting pregame coverage for sens games and then toronto-based national coverage for most of the day, i think the station will crash. i actually find TGOR pretty decent especially with pierre in the morning. and i actually like yorkie and steve lloyd.

-if you get rid of stuff like that and replace it with toronto-based national hosts, i think it will be brutal.

No more Jonny Abbott? That brings the station down a notch, for sure. Where did he go?

As long as it's Jacubec calling the 67s games and they don't do something really bad like putting Kenny Walls in the play-by-play role (he should stick to producing), it'll be fine.

John Abbott went to Toronto, he is now the play-by-play guy for the Marlies.

Speaking of really good sports radio, Tim and Sid: Uncut from The Score had their last show yesterday. Rumour is Seixeiro and Micallef are going to Fan 590 to do 3 hours daily. Not sure when though.

Agreed.

Now with he and MacArthur gone so are the endearing tales of chicken wings, pizza, finger foods and so on causing dead air. Murray Wilson wasn't too bad, better than Donovan anyway. Dono isn't too bad but there is so much fawning over him that I generally turn off the radio when he's around.
Morning show is getting much better, Jerome has been reigned in.
9-12 show is decent as it gets.

I may have been too harsh on Eastwood. I don't listen to the postgame show after losses because of all the 70 year old grandmas who call in saying "trade ________".

Sounds like a recipe for success!

I can picture the two spatula wielding owners shouting down and berating their customers.

A store where the customer is never right.

As a non Sens fan I enjoyed Eastwood, he called it as it was, no coddling to the Sens or their fan base, with the Sens poor play as of late he had lots of ammunition. With AJ now seemingly involved the non Eastwood fans should be happy, AJ alwasys has nothing but positive things to say about the Sens.

I disagree. Eastwood was moronic, he didn't make sense. He contradicted himself. Instead of refuting a point made by a fan, he essentially said that it was stupid instead. Zero insight whatsoever.

Good riddance.

I don't know why people bother listening to a post-game show on the radio at all. In all the years where I'll tune in to 1200 forgetting it's post-game, listen to three minutes of some drunk guy calling in, and then tune out.

I never heard anything insightful or accurate post-game, whether from one of the hosts, a caller or an e-mailer.

Eastwood seemed to dislike the Sens so I can see why he might be agreeable to someone who shared his opinion.

He should never have hosted a phone in show; it was not in his nature to listen to another point of view. If anyone dared to venture a different take than his own he would shout them down and then he and MacArthur would snicker about it.

I am not gong to miss that at all.

Mainly he seemed pretty bored to be there and only really interested if the conversation turned to fast food .His hockey analysis boiled down to "it is what it is" which he said numerous times on every every show.

I doubt that

I doubt that he disliked the Sens, Sens fans just think that. The fact is the Sens were horrible last year and he would have no credibility if he sang the company line ala AJ. If the Sens were playing better hockey he wouldn't have to listen to all of those moronic callers complaning about the refs, etc and I'm sure he would have been much more positive. If anyone was annoying it was Scott MacArthur, that guy was full of hot air.

He was on the show for more than one year. His attitude toward the Sens was the same every year.

I am not now and have never been an uncritical fan of the Sens management by any means and that is not what I expect from the radio hosts.

But he seemed to have a chip on his shoulder all the time . The callers weren't all stupid, some of them had more pertinent and interesting things to say than Eastwood, but his ego prevented him from letting them have their say if they didn't agree with him. There were many times that I wished he would just shut up and listen.

With AJ we have a host that doesn't dislike the team he is covering, knows a lot of the players from covering junior teams and will actually listen to points of view other than his own..
