That will be a fun conference to watch. They should add St Joes too

Apparently ESPN 1000 canned Harry from Carmen, Jurko, & Harry.

Always thought he was the weakest link, but going to be weird listening to them on the way home from work as only a duo.

Big shakeup on the way IMO. Wouldn't surprise me at all to see Waddle and Silvy moved to afternoons.

Wont be duo for long

They will find someone else to fill spot

And I have always thought he was terrible to be honest

I used to listen to ESPN1000 all the time but haven't been listening to it for last 2 years outside of occasional Waddle/Silvy during football season

B&B are absolutely hilarious. This part of the year sucks though for them, IMO.

Their style isn't for everyone. Over the top cynicism rubs some people the wrong way. I think they're hilarious. Having gone to B&B's tavern tour a couple times, I can tell you they aren't really *******s in person. Pretty nice guys actually.

The awful sports radio on afternoons has led me to rarely listening to sports radio anymore. From B&B always trashing their own callers and listeners, to the annoying Jurko and Harry show...uggh.

Harry always sucked. That show is ok but I'm not overly crazy about Carmen, either. Waddle and Silvy is pretty good but Silvy's pretty annoying, Waddle makes up for it.

B & B are intelligent sports guys but they lose me. I can't stand how arrogant and smug Bernstein is, and their attitude about hockey always turned me off. I get if you don't want to talk about the sport, it's the bottom rung among the four sports here for fan talk no matter how well they're doing. But there's not talking about it and then there's making fun of it and being smug about it. Surprises me even more now cuz I know Bernstein has a young kid who plays, at least as of last year.

Be interesting to see how all that shakes out on ESPN 1000.

I only ever go up the dial for national broadcasts, like the MLB Playoffs or the BCS Championship.

It's what I stream at work most days, but I don't care much for it.

I like the Score much more than ESPN 1000, but B&B I'm not a fan of. Wish there was someone else on my way home from work.

Working nights for so long the only ones I listened too were the grobber - who's very knowledgeable about everything but hockey - and Mulley and Hanley who I like.

I'm not big on M&H. They're both so bland, there's just nothing to that show. I'd rather listen to Eric and Kathy if I'm driving in the morning

B&B are entertaining but they suck. They often strawman their callers then hang up on them and mock an inaccurate version of the guy's point. Not to mention how hockey-stupid they are.

Exactly how I feel about B&B. M&H are decent on the way to work. Not the most entertaining, but fairly knowledgeable and do a good job actually talking sports. M&S in the afternoons are not bad either when I occasionally listen to them on my lunch break.
