why is that merely reacting to something stupid/insane/incorrect a member of the media says usually results in a chorus of people saying "haha the joke's on you you played right into their hands he was trying to elicit a response DANCE PUPPET DANCE"

i mean couldn't someone also just up and say that all the terrible shitposting on this board was just a ploy to get someone from the media to notice us and that kilgo has in fact been had here? i mean i wonder how many people heard that on the radio (i know that radio has no audience now, try to suspend your disbelief for a moment) and then checked out the site immediately afterward? lol looks like kilgo played right into zod's hands am i right

When you first started whining, he was a respected, credible, straight-forward man. Now he's a shock jock troll trying to get attention. You should decide on a story and stick with that or you're going to lose this case, son.

Lol, just what I was thinking. Now he is a shock jock? Well, possibly because he is a cheeseburger away from a defibrillator.


Have fun guys. I never said that. I said he comes from the beginning of that era (think Howard Stern, and locally, Jay Thomas, who also worked for Kaplan at the same time Kilgo was there). That is not fundamentally inconsistent with anything else I've said. My point is simply that "strong" air personalities elicit strong reactions and generally, more listeners. Look at the replies/views here. You can't buy that kind of publicity. Stan Kaplan also taught that. Furthermore, many of these posts are proving Kilgo correct. The last laugh isn't on Kilgo, he's the one having it.

This isn't really a lot of replies for the Huddle; it actually has an audience.

Again I'll point out that Zod has over 4 times as many twitter followers and dozens of thousands more people as his audience.

Kilgo is basically that rapper guy who tried to fight him for attention.

You don't get it. If this thread generated one more net listener, or a current listener pays a little more attention when he's on, he, FNZ, and their clients all win. Period.

PS - Kilgo doesn't have a scheduled slot on FNZ. His listenership numbers depend almost entirely on the station itself. To the extent they don't, publicity like this almost ALWAYS makes for a net gain. In radio, it's percentages (market share) that matter most, not overall numbers. That has been true forever. As someone else said, number-wise, local radio is dead in the water compared to other forms of media. In that respect, you are correct.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am already working on finding a station via internet so I can listen to this guy talk about stuff like NC basketball.

Oh, wait a minute...no I'm not.

I can guarantee you this thread produced a lot more people who will now refuse to listen than people who think "oh he insulted me I think I'll tune in."

The adage that any publicity is good publicity is a proven fallacy. Ask Imus and Anthony Wiener.

As for the latter statement: True, and Stan used to say that too. Imus forgot he was now living in a PC generation and stepped across the line. The Wiener comparison is an entirely different issue.

As for the former: I highly doubt that you are even close to being right. Look at how many Huddlers call each other idiots. Does that stop them from reading and responding to a given poster? As a rule, no.

Don't know who he is but he's correct. It's hard to sift through this site for quality commentary.

I just took a class 3 Kilgo after eating taco bell for lunch. I must weigh 5 pounds less.

I know you are the boss of this place and all, but if you want to stay in the good graces of as many Charlotte media types as possible, if I were the CEO here, I'd delete this post (and my quote). He is STILL very well connected. One phone call from Kilgo has made or broken more than one Charlotte media career.

so, this old fart nugget insults the community that zod put together, zod insults(i suppose) the guy that just insulted his community and zod's supposed to retract what he says and act more respectful because the guy used to be respected or at least used to have people know who he is?

bwahahahahaha

he probably has more people knowing who he is than ever before and that isn't a good thing because now all they know is that hes an ancient vindictive prick and will probably tune out anything he says...regardless of the fact that he's probably right.

What some of the posters here don't get is this: good or bad, there has always been an entertainment aspect to all but the most serious forms of broadcasting. That includes news/sports...even weather. John Kilgo's career took off about the same time the era of the "shock jock" was born. Do you really think the person(a) presented on the air is the exact same one that coworkers, friends, and family see/hear? With rare exceptions, of course not.

Kilgo's old boss, Stan Kaplan, encouraged the very sort of thing the haters are complaining about. Sure a few people are "button pushers," "knob twisters." or whatever we used to call those who changed channels/stations when someone/something came on, but, for the most part, you do listen, and you react just as strongly as he does on the air...and that is exactly what "strong" air personalities are trying to get you to do. Every one of you who has read or posted on this thread, even the ones who have never heard of him...well, now you have. In other words, you took the bait. No matter what your opinion of him is, the net result is positive for Kilgo, FNZ, and their advertisers. That is exactly how that business works. For that matter, it's how many businesses work.

TLDR: You've been had, owned, etc.


Kilgo was/is Doug from Lawndale, and "both" died 2 years ago.
You are listening to archived tape from 1992.

Did you see the NFL total access segment he had about the Panthers and if Rivera should be fired or not? I just want to punch him in the ball sack or kick his throat in. He's at a Joe person douche bag level.
