I’ve listened to The Fan for years, and I’ve always enjoyed tuning in and hearing sports chat on a daily basis while I’m driving or working.

I have to say though – I don’t think I’ve ever listened less to the station than I do now. I still love Prime Time, and make sure not to miss that. But I don’t listen in the mornings. I’m not a big enough hockey fan to listen to an in depth 2 hour daily show (though I like Maclean – it’s just too hardcore hockey for me). I enjoy The Game Plan, but they seem to be away 3/4 of the time, and I don’t have much interest in listening to the fill ins. I like Jays games on radio and Wilner, but that’s a summer thing.

I dunno. I’ve been realizing that other than McCown, I think I listen to The Fan more out of habit than out of actual interest.

I’d say 590 has improved a bit in the last 6 months (mainly due to the subtraction of Farraway and Toth) but it still has a long way to go to get to where it should be.

By the way, apparently Brunt was supposed to be on with McCown this week but he is stuck in Europe which means another week of Shannon

Farraway is still there though, isn’t he? But yes, he’s a disaster when he hosts a show. Their talent after 7pm has promise. Sixeiro and Zack Cooper will get better, but Erik Thomas isn’t listenable. Simply horrid.

Not sure who’s running the ship there, but I can’t believe they won’t have an overhaul done before September. A major one. I said it months ago, if you’re not named Bob McCown, you’re not safe there.

I’d also think he won’t possibly get as lucrative contract again as he has right now. Times have changed. No one’s worth a million dollars. They’ll throw him 450-500 and say, “take it or leave it”.

I don’t know. I don’t have any insider insight into the business, but I can’t imagine The Fan could afford to lose McCown.

Yes Farraway is still there but he is not on the air much anymore (thankfully).

Yes I agree that Erik Thomas is unlistenable. But I do not agree that Sixeiro has promise. I am not a fan of his.

I could be wrong but I don’t think McCown makes anywhere near a million dollars…………..I thought he made closer to half a million…………..and since Kirke is his agent he will have a good chance of getting a similar amount once his current contract expires.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
