Rover Gone Missing From K-Rock

What's up at CBS Alternative WKRK (92.3 K-ROCK)/CLEVELAND?
ALL ACCESS confirms morning man ROVER is now MIA from the station's site, www.krockcleveland.com, and syndicated morning stars OPIE & ANTHONY are suddenly slotted in wakeups. Where will ROVER surface?

Maybe i could have thrown out a hack joke like

"I think the punt got blocked this time"


That would be worthy of car crashes and or falling down stairs head first.

Maxwell is afternoons. They used to compete with him. But now they're moving forward in Cleveland and coming live to mornings and leaving him in the dust.

I agree. Too bad there's not better news on the Philly front.
Radio here just sucks balls without O&A.
Philly will happen. I think for the most part the show works best in towns where there is certain fucker attitude, and Philly certainly has that.

Now it's just a matter of timing for them to find a good station that will treat them right so they can kick the shit out of WYSP.

Thank God that hack is off the air. O&A deserved to be in the mornings in Cleveland to begin with. It's difficult to try and talk to anybody about the show when they haven't heard it yet.

I love my XM.

CBS was too cheap to pay Rover what he wanted for a new contract, so he bailed. CBS suddenly finds themselves needing a morning show, and they're already paying O&A. Let's not go busting out the champagne bottles just yet. This was CBS's cheapest option, not some big victory for O&A.

Of course, it's still an opportunity for them to kick Rover's ass in the ratings and show CBS what a mistake they were making by hiding them in afternoons along with the "and punt" douche.

Are you insane? Rover was #1 with men 18-34 and #3 12+ in Cleveland. O&A should be so lucky to have such "shitty" ratings.

last fall before they moved to Chicago and then Back to Cleveland (same awful station that they tried O&A On) they were pulling 20+ Ratings in Cleveland

not sure what there current ratings are.

Rover is a scripted show whit a hole. i HATE that awful show and i'm happy the boys are on in the mornings

if they are moving they are probably going over to 100.7 WMMS which currently airs Bob and Tom (have had 7 morning shows over the last 8 years)

will be an interesting battle as Rover will have the early advantage (Rover had better ratings in Cleveland then Howard Stern did his last couple of years)
