    Sorry if this is a DB, but i didn't see it posted anywhere.
    You stay classy, Andy Furman.
    Always good to call an athlete a racist when he misses a spot on your show.....

  2. "Furman, along with other WLW personalities, has a history of making controversial and inflammatory comments on the air. The station has led the Cincinnati-area ratings for more than six years, according to the paper."

    That might be the most telling sentence on the national dialogue anyone's written in the past decade.

    The station leads the ratings cuz it has the strongest signal in the area.

    The Senator, while insisting he was not intoxicated, could not explain his nudity...

    Hey, if the slur fits, it's not racism.

    Furman is a rabble-rousing idiot. The problem is, he's not the worst offender at that station.

    I thought Furman was good radio, for what he was (yeah, rabble-rousing idiot isn't far off). Surely he realizes by now that this was a really dumb thing to be fired over.

    Will be curious to see who fills his spot at The Big One.

    It took them a MONTH to decide what to do about it?

    They should replace him with Venus Flytrap.
