I wasn’t listening to most of the portion of Monday’s “Mr. T Show” that got Ted Robinson in hot water. All I heard was the 49ers play-by-play announcer referring to Janay Palmer Rice’s decision to marry Ray Rice as “pathetic.” If you’re looking for a detailed account of what Robinson said (and he said a […]
Well, well, well. It looks like these here Radio Wars just got a little more interesting! Tuesday morning, our fearless leader sent shockwaves through the sports talk radio community (meh) and effectively brought Twitter to its knees in the process (not really) when he broke the news of a huge shakeup at 95.7 The Game.

This feature is called “Radio Wars” but with the current ratings it is less a war and more of a massacre. With baseball in full swing, the Giants playing pretty well, KNBR has become a ratings […]
The April Arbitron numbers were released. So, dear readers, that means you get your monthly fix of sports radio ratings. With baseball on the radio, KNBR has regained it’s dominant position in the sports “Radio Wars” and can comfortably call themselves “the sports leader,” while 95.7 “The Game” treads water. While it is hard to […]
The big news that rocked the Bay Area sports radio was Ralph “The Razor” Barbieri getting axed from KNBR. Unfortunately, because of the lag in the reporting of the ratings, it won’t be until next month that we can see what effect that news has on the sports radio landscape. Even then it might be […]
