So he antagonizes the gun people. While I agree with him, it's just not a battle worth fighting.

And I don't think expressing desire for a drone strike constitutes a terrorist threat. What a bunch of jerks for reporting that.

My friend worked at the X about five or six years ago so I'm sure much has changed but he said most of the people that worked there weren't really happy about their roles.

A couple days ago Madden retweeted anyone who who would say they didn't want music during his show anymore.

So it must be my fault. I never listen to Benz in the AM. Today, I had it on from 7:30 to a little after 10, via iheart here in VA. Seems a likeable enough guy. But he forgot lesson #1. Don't bring up politics on a nonpolitical station. Nobody wants to hear politics on a station like the X, and if I was a regular, I would get ticked off even if politics on my side were brought in.

Especially with the idiots we have in this world now. You have to be watching what you say at all times, regardless of how small a comment you feel something is.

It's bad enough to bring politics to a non political show - but when you do it in the childish bumper sticker method Benz does - you essentially make half the people turn you off. When you spend time reading the federalist papers, learning the history of what the colonists were dealing with in regards to the British, the lives and struggles of man of our founding fathers - you really have no patience for a joker like Tim Benz to condense that into some half thought out sound quip.

I listened to the show earlier in the week where the guns were brought up. He stated something to the effect that people can own guns, but there should be a line drawn, basing the opinion off of a comment from a guy that stated people should be able to own any type of weapon, including bombs, rocket launchers, etc, anything just "short of a tank or nuclear weapon".

People started calling in jumping all over him saying he said they had to go and take all of their guns away. He kept trying to say he never said that, that he was just saying there should be limits and laws. But then Tim did what he usually does and became hyper sensative and I think that pushed things over the edge.

The PR thread made me think of posting here. I really enjoy Mark Madden's show, and listen to it on my phone from Philly. What other Pittsburgh sports talk shows are worth listening to?

I feel bad for Bob Mclaughlin more than anything.

Listen, i hate Tim Benz. The dude is just not a good person from everything i have heard from people who have met him and he's a huge ****** on the radio. That being said, i never wanna see someone lose their job or worse yet, have it affect someone as nice as Bob. I hope they somehow find someone to carry that show quickly so Bob doesn't lose his job. The guy deserves better than a fate such as this from a dude who rage-quits on the air.

The thing that terrifies me is there really isn't anyone out there who is from the local Pittsburgh scene that can step in. Jim Krenn is the only guy who comes to mind and he was fired by clear channel. Just another great dude who can't find work. Sucks...

Wait... why don't they slide Scott Paulsen over to WXDX in place of Tim Benz? Paulsen is kinda the third wheel on the DVE morning show and it's clear he can carry a show even though DVE seems hell bent on promoting Bill Crawford over him. Paulsen is a dominant personality while Bob is a great sidekick. Does this train of thought make sense? I'm just thinking out loud here i guess.

Is there a podcast for that?
I can't listen to streams at work these days and Stan is a true gem...would love to be able to tune into him otherwise.

columbia, I'm not sure. You could check out 970's webpage. Stan really is the last of the great ones.
