Marc James' last day at Wfnz today!

Recommended Posts

You would be to if you had to moderate all the idiot duke and NCSU fans that don't have jobs who call WFNZ 3 times a day. Not to mention they're probably pulling him away from a golf course.

I'd be willing to bet Kilgo works for free on those days when he fills in. The guy is a legend and when he's on the air you are being educated whether you realize it or not. He's not shoving his opinion down your throat. You are learning. Dude knows more about college basketball than at least half the people in the mainstream media. Now, he may not have the connections to teams/players away from the the state of NC and the ACC like Jeff Goodman, Gary Parrish, Jeff Borzello. Andy Katz, etc have - but he knows the history of the game. I love the guy. He's somebody who can educate you on basketball and can educate you on life.

You do realize this is a PANTHERS forum , right? Your schtick is really old. STFU about UNC and their "haters".

You are in a minority my friend about not caring about college sports in North Carolina and the southeast. The Panthers and UNC/NCSU/duke/Wake/college hoops are the top dogs in this area and it ain't even close with anything else.

The university I attended was not an ACC school so UNC/Duke/NCSU etc are not on the top of my agenda. I watch college football but don't need to hear much talk radio discussing it. I could listen to Panther talk 24/7 and be content.

they might not be on your agenda - but ACC sports, UNC, NSCU, and duke are on the agenda of WFNZ's target audience and demographic. That is a fact. They wouldn't talk about it all the time if it didn't move the dial and generate ratings. It's why they don't talk about Seattle Mariners baseball or Minnesota Twins baseball on WFNZ. And why they probably don't talk much ACC basketball (aside from when UNC and duke play) in Seattle and Minnesota. 

 

I as well could listen to Panthers talk 24/7, but we're kinda in that blah part of the year where baseball is still kinda getting started (and it's attendance and TV ratings are sinking faster than a ship in the Iraqi Navy), and if you aren't a big NBA fan (I am not but my love for NBA is slowly returning) and if you aren't a big hockey fan (which no true Southerner is) than you don't have much to talk about. NASCAR is in decline ratings wise but it still moves the dial here and they talk about that more on WFNZ than they do the Braves.

BS aside from this thread - I think 99% of us in here, most being a part of WFNZ's target audience and demographic, can all agree that Marc James WILL NOT be missed.

 

This is going to be interesting to see which way they go in their hire. Somebody mentioned Jordan Gross, and I gotta admit that is a pretty good idea, but I was listening to him on WBT and his podcasts....eh I dunno if he has that assertive/strong enough personality to lead a 5hr sports talk show. Even when he filled in on WBT, he really struck me as a type of guy who is kinda ready to move on from football and to be frank I dunno if he's versatile enough to handle the different sports in this area that are important like Nascar and ACC hoops. Gross isn't a meathead like Frank Garcia is. 

 

I think Haywood could be a good choice, but even with him (or gross) they are going to have to bring in a seasoned radio guy that can kinda lead the way with Gross and/or Haywood as sorta the sidekick bringing a sort of expertise and credibility to the show.

Ditto.

He's probably a douche in real life and he said on air that if he weren't in sports broadcasting he would be working for the paparazzi and TMZ. Are you kidding me? That is special type of scum bag that tries to catch an upskirt photo of a drunk Lindsay Lohan or start a tabloid fight between celebrities talking poo about each other like a bunch of school girls. That is the type of person we are dealing with here.

Loud, obnoxious, know it all. I don't wish any bad on him professionally or personally but I'm thrilled to see him go. He's somebody else's problem now. Word is he's heading to Atlanta. I'm sure he'll be telling the awful sports town that is the ATL how they are such great sports fan and he's got the smartest listeners in the south in no time.

WFNZ is a horrible station. Still, try listening to Bobby Rosinski on ESPN730. It's even worse.

I used to work with bobby .A very quiet kid but nice. He never said a word and it was very surprising he ended up on a sports talk show. This was 10 years ago so I guess he came out of his shell.

He said he set out to get Hurney fired...and believes he accomplished his goal.

 

I set out to get his ass fired...and I believe I accomplished my goal.

 

 

 

As far as I am concerned, we are equal Mark with a qunt James.  Drag your ass on out of here you talent-less POS.

 

Best day I have had since Kony got drafted.

Bobby R from all accounts is a nice dude. I have some friends that know him. I think he grew up in Matthews. 

 

Still, how do you think he got that nice job on ESPN730? I'm sure his old man didn't help him in anyway. 

 

I tried to make the switch a year or so ago to ESPN730 but I couldn't do it. The hosts are horrible and the local shows are horrible. It's flat. Boring. Uninspiring. At least WFNZ has a little bit of personality. ESPN does have a nice "brand" and that alone helps them get some good interviews.

Kilgo is the best person on that entire station. The only people who don't like him are UNC haters.

In other words State fans?

The majority of UNCers in here could only get nto UNC- Pembroke. No hate just amusement...

Kilgo is great for filler but couldn't listen to him all the time.

I don't like Kilgo and I don't find anything he says interesting. I didn't mind his play by play at all but I turn off the radio when I hear his voice doing talk radio. I don't mind listening to foxsportsradio.com during the day or 730 when im out during rush hour. You could say 730 has less personality but they are also more professional. They try to inform you and don't spend entire shows with immature/sensational dialogue on the big social issues in sports. They don't bait callers with easy topics about Cam or Jerry Richardson. All WFNZ has to do is say "Is Cam" and the lines are loaded with people that hate him for sad reasons and people that will defend him to the death.

 

The saddest thing about Marc is he thinks he matters. He thinks he moves the needle, he thinks he influences the sports world. People hated Marty before he ever showed up. Losing got Marty fired, not Marc James. When Marc makes a prediction and it comes true you would think he cured cancer. He thinks former Miami players care that he went to Miami. Best thing that ever happened to Jon Beason was getting traded away from Marc's brown nose.

WFNZ has really lost a lot of credibility and it's going to be interesting to see what kind of hire they make. I could honestly see them bringing in no names. No names like Colin Hoggard/Nathan Conley or no names with no ties to the area and aren't recognizable nationally.

 

That'd be pure budgetary hiring, no credibility at all (which frankly, sounds like how they work)

 

 

Nathan Conley is terrible too. He's not a jerk he just sounds like a wimp that got hired because his daddy knows somebody. He starts talking before he's thought of something to say.

 

Pretty much.  No way I'd listen to that.

 

Get ready for this is gross with jordan gross and the QCB from 3-7

 

I wish (the Gross part, anyway; QCB I can live without).

 

 

He said he set out to get Hurney fired...and believes he accomplished his goal.

 

I set out to get his ass fired...and I believe I accomplished my goal.

Geez, what a self-important douche.

 

The person that got Marty Hurney fired was Marty Hurney.
