Amen to that. Jim was nothing but a pedestrian when Randy was there. Now that he's the main voice, the room seems empty. I refuse to listen to the morning show anymore ~ sad since it was the best one in town with Randy there. Jim seems like a really great guy, but I think it was stupid to break up possibly the best morning show team at least in the state, if not the country.

I like the X morning show for the most part, but they get focused on too much stupid crap which tends to take away from the show. Every single X jockey seems to get caught up on using big, hip words which make them sound less intelligent than their intentions - it's annoying, just stop.

For a station which the X has done nothing but rip since word leaked out of their existence, it looks like they might have a bit to actually worry about. Now that there are (I hope) better afternoon guys on 93.7, I probably will hang up on MM. Again, the guy is good for the most part, but I don't like his A-hole shtick; it also gets old.

Hope The Fan sticks around longer than The Man Station or w/e the heck that stupid crap was lol...

Wow. Did not realize the Vinnie guy on the 10 o'clock show was such a "New Yorker".

Will be interesting to see how the Pittsburgh audience takes such a bombastic New York guy.

He is definitely a "schtick" guy.

I agree. While I love the DVE morning show, it has been a train wreck since Randy left. Neither Jim or Val can carry the show. That is what Randy did, and now that he is gone, the its been very awkward. I am happy that The Fan offers me something new for the ride in.

They are rehashing Super Bowl 40 because this Vinnie guy is from Seattle.

Cook and Vinnie may kill each other.

Randy was kind of an idiot and I did not like him very much

But the banter between him and Jim made the show pretty good.

Val and Prisuta are both likable people and both good at what they do, but Val does not do a very good job at being jims sidekick. The show is a lot worse off without Randy, like him or not.

Could just be the newness or the presence of The Vinnie, but I'm not annoyed by Cook. Yet.
