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.
