It kinda sucks to see Spec leave...his show was a good contrast to Stauffer's "Oilers Now" show

Does that mean Spec won't be on with Gregor anymore either?

One would think so, if you're Sportsnet you probably don't want Spec on the TSN radio station in the market.

One can only hope. I'd be curious what Lowetide's numbers are talking to random bloggers that a lot of people don't know about or hate because they are from hockeybuzz.

I can't remember particulars but I thought someone mentioned something about a guy in Vancouver with a similar situation to Spec?

With that being said, I like Spec's show and like him on Gregor's show, but far too often Spec isn't on his show and it's quite hard to listen to when he's not on.

I would love less Brownlee either way. I hope he can stay on, but I could see a Spec hiatus atleast at the beginning just so Sportsnet puts their foot down or whatever at TSN invading "their" market.

They need less of a lot. Gregor has too much airtime. Still think he does well getting away from Hockey, but 4 hours is too much for one guy. They need less local programming. You have the radio on all day in the summer and it's pathetic. Then come winter not only do you get to hear Doug Maclean, Dreger, Mckenzie etc.. on the radio, but then they state the same info daily during hockey intermissions.

Personally, I can't stand the Jungle Jim Hunter show. Hope they get rid of it and replace it with a local sports show.

And I have to disagree about Gregor. I think it's a great show, and Brownlee is a good co-host. I only wish there were less commercials.

When Rome has guests the show is pretty good. When Rome is just being Rome the show is pure awful.

Jim Rome is the most infantile host of all time.
His Schtick is bad. Real bad. At least for anybody with an IQ over 75

3 hours of Rome talking to his "Clones"??? I think I would rather listen to 3 hours of Spence diamond commercials.

God no. No American shows during the day. If you want to listen to Rome, there are many other ways to do that. Luckily TSN is affiliated with ESPN, so there is basically no chance Rome will be back on.

I can't stand that show but I understand a need for some diversity. I would avoid that station like the plague during that time slot if they brought Rome back though.

Ugh I puke every time I hear Jim Rome. That guy is the freaking Oprah Winfrey of sports.
I don't care what some basketball player thinks is Dope.

I listen to the Radio to hear about hockey. I'll listen to the hockey show.

I hope they don't kill all the good local programming that has come on. There's nothing worse thank clicking on the radio sports station to hear about some college guy you've never heard about faking his girlfriends death or what not.

Rome is super American.
Loud, brash and forces things down your throat.

And talks in the most monotone voice ever.

I'm so glad that Lowetide has taken over where Rome was. I couldn't stand the guy.

It kind of sucks to see spec go but I'm sure that they will replace him with someone good. I can't wait to see who they are going to get from TSN. Maybe Rishaug gets his own show :0

Spector to CHED would make sense.

Rishaug getting the noon slot also makes sense.

Dear god no. I avoid the hours he's on the air every time. 3 hours would just make that gap longer. Rome is brutal, imo. He tends to pick a joke and then jam it down your throat 50 times an hour.

I don't see the point of Rishaug or Spec having shows. Spec has problems committing in the summer to shows. Once hockey is actually on and his travelling he'll have more problems. Rishaug would be in the same boat.

This gave me a chuckle.

Pretty much sums up my feelings as well.

Hopefully they make some changes, the morning show reminds me of KBBL off the Simpsons, with all the audio clips, they try too hard to be funny.

Lowetide show doesn't do anything for me, but I'm not an advanced stats guy, don't mind the host, very well spoken and quite intelligent. Also by far the most humble.

Spector drives me nuts. Picks one point and sticks with it, and hammers the point home over and over. Any time he talks CFL is a joke.

Gregor does a lot with the diversity of what he talks about, which is good sometimes and bad others, tries to bring to light some stories around edmonton that you don't really hear about. But damn those commercials.

What would be great is if both TSN 1260 and Oilers now would stop inviting MC79.

Instantly switch stations when I hear that egotistical jerk on the air.
