The Ticket Thread

A hit-or-miss hodgepode of hyperbolicism...

Although if you read the comment thread it mentions anything from CBS/Cumulus merging to Mike Rhyner retiring.

Nah, that was a huge stretch, I'd say. It sure seems like it's gonna be Mike retiring.

I bet it is Norm. Richie Whitt said something about three decades and Norm took all of his vacation time for the year last month...

At this point it seems like Dan or BaD is leaving if a deal isn't worked out.

Hmm. What in the world could be better than what they are doing now?

Hmmm... I've always wondered what these guys make.

I would think that the Ticket pays them pretty well and I would think that paying somebody twice as much would be out of the question for that type of position.
why don't you run back to the sandbox where the rest of the kids are playing so the adults can have a discussion...it's over there....you see Howie, he's over there with PMS knocking over other kids sandcastles...looks like fun.

Twice as much money and they'll be out of a job in two years when The Fan folds.

If I'm well compensated, which I assume they are because neither's wife works, I stick with the sure thing.

They are not going to turn a station around, so why would you leave a place where you've been very successful?

Seems like the smart thing to do. Surely, they got a pay increase of some sort.

I heard they had written into the contract that David Moore can't tell any more corny jokes.

So, did we ever get what the facts of the story were or just rumors?

I haven't seen hard facts anywhere....rumor was they were headed to The Fan today, which is why they aren't on the radio today, if contacts weren't worked out.

Bob tweeted something last night about staying at home and not messing up a good thing.

Don't know if they got their demands, or ultimately just decided they better keep what they had.

I personally hope they slashed Sturms salary in half, because he sucks that bad.

Which leads me to the question....what would The Ticket have done? Promoted a weekend show? Most of those guys have regular weekday jobs. Brought in new guys?

That would have been an incredibly meteoric rise for Sean and Jake. But that's probably what would have happened.

Doesn't Jake have a regular job though? Guess he'd prob quit that pretty quick for a weekday gig at the ticket though.

I'd have been out on that though because I can only handle so much Seabass.
