In case you haven't noticed, we have no problem attacking each other... unlike MOM, we never run out of material and we never have to water it down for censors.

That's true. Even though most incoherent,pointless post on here is more interesting than 98% of the MOM show.

Aside from having a faggy name like Oscar, he sounds like the biggest ass at the station. They're giving him money, trying to patch things up after the "blow up" and he's still calling people dicks. They should take their offer of money back and tell that fucker to go hang.

Oscar is a very nice guy. he can't help what his parents named him. He comes to my gym and I just adore him. I would be mad too. Chad is also very nice. I hope their show stays on the air. They are both the sweetest guys and very respectful of older people.

My 2009 predictions:

-WJFK will make serious format changes as has been mentioned on this site, possibly to all-sports, and the Mike O'Meara show will be gone as of 1/23/09.

-WJFK will not 'shit can' Mike that way everyone would prefer or are predicting here. Due to his many years at WJFK, he will somehow take a lesser role in the new format. He will take this new position due to his current financial situation and the lack of opportunities elsewhere. He's got to support his girlfriend, his house, his kids, and ex-wives so he will reluctantly accept another paycut.

-The disappointment that the posters on this website will feel actually will allow this site to continue in its current state. Everyone will continue to have fun cutting down Mike and his various roles. WJFK may let him be a roving sports reporter, weather man, janitor, or sometype of executive - who knows. It will be fun follow the changes.

Paul Fahri at the Washington Post writes what we have all been thinking...

"Radio station most likely headed for a fall: WJFK-FM. As much as I enjoy the morning Junkies and Mike O'Meara's afternoon show, I wonder how long CBS Radio will keep such high-cost, local shows around in the current economic calamity. The Junks tied for 16th among adults (25-54) in November; O'Meara finished 17th"

Fahri also pointed out that Jim Rome's show in the evenings sucks just as bad in the ratings, but because it is piped in, it costs a hell of a lot less than O'Meara's fat contract.

Can anyone suggest some other stations to listen to? I don't really dig sports. I used to listen to Elliot a long while ago, but not sure if I want to again (although, he's funny). Just looking for something new w/o going to satrad.

I believe they ran ads when Stern was getting ready to jump to Sirius. I think broadcast outlets have limited leeway about what advertisers they can refuse because they are considered a public trust because of the public airwaves. Even if WJFK balked at running the ads, I don't believe they have much recourse to deny them.

I can see them not giving Mike a "goodbye" week. All he would do is come in more and more drunk every day and go into one of his two modes: cry and/or fight. The idea of a goodbye week with Mike would be a disaster. I would listen to it, but it would be cringe radio at its finest.

It's fairly certain that the last "fresh", and I use that term very loosely, MOM show was broadcast last week before he went on vacation. He will not be back. WJFK could broadcast an endless loop of an emergency broadcast warning and get better ratings than O'Meara.

Buzz Burbank will make a decent living as a voice-over guy. Robb and Joe will end up working in retail somewhere. Mike? I imagine he will have the same career prospects as any other hack DJ in this market. Middays at Big 103 at $50K a year? Yep.

Worst: MIKE O MEARA SHOW How much did Don G do? Everything it seems. It was an evergreen show, now it is DEAD LAST bottom of the pile filler shit. I thought all those years Mike was the talented one, now the curtain has been pulled away and it was all Don. Sad for a once great show AND station. His interviews are NOT "pay for play" by Cbs or advertisters. He's just lazy, and takes whatever crap Beth Ann throws at him. Shameful. His 60% pay cut when Don left was not enough. And he nutered Rob, who was once also funny. CBS will pull the plug shortly.

Now that the general media is reporting on Mike O'Meara losing his show, he is pretty much toast. You can't tell me that advertisers like hearing that the show they are spending money on isn't just in last, but is rumored to be close to being cancelled. I can’t think of press that is much worse for a radio show than reports that you are going to lose the show due to low ratings. “Box office poison”. The end is in site.

Well then, your pathetic ratings will continue to drop faster than the Dow Jones. Even if the show doesn't end on 1-23, do you think WJFK will continue to keep paying you no talent turds when advertisers start buying airtime on other stations instead of yours? Maybe you'll be able to entertain people in the unemployment line, because the ratings reflect that you're NOT entertaining people who listen to the radio...Dipshit.

O'Meara would have lost to WPFW if his on-air Obama blow-job hadn't pulled some communists over to his end of the dial.

With PPMs becoming official and setting ad rates, the sales staff could book the entire show and it will still lose money. CBS has no choice but to start firing people.

I'm amazed that more people aren't focussing on Robb "Ratings Poison" Spewak! He has become some combination of Robin Quivers (laughs at everything Mike says) and Elliot (thinks laughing into the mike for long periods of time is somehow compelling radio). He's the albatross around Mike's neck. As soon as they announced that he was in the lineup, I knew that show was doomed. P.S. Hey Robb - knowing stuff about 60's and 70's television doesn't make you intelligent, it makes you a dork.

I thought Spewak was funny on the D&M Show, but they kept him on a short tether, he was more of the guy on the sitcom who'd pass through and make a funny aside and then not be heard of again for the rest of the show. I usually got a good laugh out of Spewaks little inferences to beating his wife or neo-nazism, if you can imagine those things having any humor. I also liked the charmless way he would speak to callers or contestants.

I think Geronimo brought out the "better" in Robb and used him sparingly. With Mike in charge, Robb has to pull more weight and worse of all, has to "make funny" with someone who isn't - O'Meara.

I detested D&M's old Morning Zoo on the old WAVA. I was "forced" to listen while at work when they moved to WJFK and came to appreciate their show for what it was. It was never Howard Stern caliber (Stern has a lot of writers and top flight guests etc) and D & M did pander to the soccer moms a little, but as background noise while working it was better than decent.D & M even in syndication was a local oriented show and that was worth a lot as a listener.

Now that Don is gone, I can really appreciate all he must have done for that show and the station. I think he wrote a great deal of the material and gave everyone just about the right amount of airtime. Don could tell a story and make it interesting, he had good timing and sounded most of all genuine, unlike O'Meara.

I see Robb differently. I thought that he was unfunny for most of his time on D&M. But, when he started getting more of a major role on TMOS, he became funny to me. I think that the problem that is going on is that Mike shouldn't be the lead guy - doesn't work. I have mentioned this in a previous post on this thread - Let Robb play the lead/Don role and Mike second fiddle. Tone Buzz down to solid news and tell BethAnn to produce some better guests or go back to real estate.

I couldn't see any show revolving around Robb, though it would probably be very charitable to allow O'Meara on any show as a second fiddle after he's performed so poorly leading a show.

O'Meara isn't that unbearable when he cameos on the Junkies or O and Dukes, though the "dysfunctional family show" a few weeks back was butt awful. Buzz sucks pretty much and Beth Ann isn't radio worthy. The guests that have been coming on don't seem to be tough catches, just typical performers or writers etc on publicity tours. Their agent sends out a press release, BA calls and O'Meara snoozes through the boring interview.

I am really starting to think this whole shitfest has been ( though maybe inadvertently) a great tool in making the Dc market hungry for Geronimo to return to the airwaves.

What fucking planet are you from? What exactly does Robb do now that is funny? Bray at Mike's unfunny jokes? Kiss Mike's ass?

You have to be fucking joking, right? Robb has demonstrated ZERO talent or ability.

That part I can agree with. However, Beth Ann has had ample opportunity to book good guests and she has failed. Fire her ass now.

I guarantee you Beth Ann has two or three PR people doing all her work for her in exchange for booking shitty guests. Being a producer isn't that hard, especially if you put no effort into it and don't care about the caliber of the guests you get...AKA Beth Ann.

I know that Robb can't touch a candle to Don & he's not the funniest guy in the world. I'm just saying that I think he's funnier on TMOS vs. his time on D&M where I think that he was annoying and unfunny. Just figuring to give the guy a chance. No, I don't know him or anything - just saying what I think, however stupid it may sound.

They gave Robb a chance. He hosted his own show on Saturdays. It failed miserably.

I will admit that Robb likes his air time, hence the starved for attention. For the Saturday show, do you mean the car thing? That, along with any weekend WJFK programming that I've heard (except Goss's Garage, which I like the rants against the listeners) are shit.

The bottom line is that Mike SUCKED when he covered for Don (during his absences) on the D&M Show. It didnt take a genius to figure that he would SUCK when given his own show. He SUCKED during his first week on the air and every week thereafter. This is confirmed by the obismal ratings. I agree that Rob was ok when he was given two-minute spots on the D&M Show. I agree that Buzz is ok when relinquished to giving the news (he cannot ad-lib and is painfully uncomfortable doing anything unscripted). The whole formula of Mike-Rob-Buzz just does not work. If you listen to the Junkies or Big O and Dukes, at least they are comfortable with each other and seem to do their shows effortless. Mike and the gang clearly struggle and it makes for painful radio.....

There are only three weeks left of the Mike O'Meara Show. Its last day will be January 23rd. It will be interesting to see if O'Meara and company come back and do three weeks of shows to bow out gracefully or if they'll just play "best of" until then. The ratings would be about the same in either case.

It really will be interesting to see if your prediction is true. If so, I might ask you to pick my March Madness bracket in a couple of months.

I think Mike is coming back with about a week or 10 days to go before the 23rd. Enough time for him to do a pathetic swan song for a week on radio. I think I might tune in to listen to one of his drunken tirades. With any luck, he'll drop a few f-bombs or rant about the Jews...something that will "Greaseman" his career.

This was just posted on DCRTV. Sounds like the momentum is building for sports at WJFK, but keeping TMOS (as well as Junks)?:

JFK Will Likely Go Sports, Keep Junks & O'Meara - 1/2 - Examiner sports media columnist Jim Williams tells DCRTV that he's spoken to representatives of Fox Sports Radio and Sporting News Radio and both have targeted CBS Radio guy talker WJFK (106.7 FM) for an all-sports or "nearly all-sports" format. There have been a number of conversations about the focus of the station. Both networks have made very attractive pitches to CBS. The two sports networks feel that an FM sports talker would be a big hit in DC, Williams adds. One scenario has WJFK, which has been battered in the new electronic Portable People Meter radio ratings, keeping the Junkies in mornings and Mike O'Meara in afternoons, but with sports talk in other time slots and a goal to make the station the flagship for the Nationals and the Wizards, and add more college sports. A sports talk WJFK would be a solid ad sales package with CBS's newly-minted sports talk WJZ-FM/AM in Baltimore, Williams adds.....

I've noticed over the years that O'Meara is quick with what seems to be phony outrage when someone says something racial. O'Meara also is anxious to talk about how hot he thinks some black women are, but he has no problem going into the "joo-york" accent when talking about lawyers or someone who has a Jewish sounding last name. White guilt guy with some anti-Semitism?

Hopefully the Junks will stay and TMOS will be cast off like the garbage it is.It won't be a really solid sports lineup with TMOS, O'Meara doesn't seem to know dick about sports, Robb and Buzz know less. O and Dukes have been focusing a lot on MMA and the Skins, maybe they got the memo.

If WJFK flips formats and keeps O'Meara, it'll just a matter of time before his ratings are in the commode also.

There's no point converting to a Sports Talk format and keeping high payroll people. Even a good sports station probably won't crack the Top 10. If they do that, I could see JFK breaking up The Junkies, having EB and Lurch on in the Morning Drive, sticking JP and Cakes in Midday and using Big O and Dukes in the evenings.

Hockey? He watches a few Ca[s games.
Baseball? Red Sox fan, thats it
Football? z e r o
Basketball? z e r o
College sports ? z e r o

And I think Ive been generous.

The problem WJFK management has is they are saddled with Mike's contract. Anyone with half-a-brain would have given him a one-year contract with options, but I doubt these guys were that smart. However, if these guys keep Mike on the air to fulfill a contract, they may pay with their jobs in the end.
