Though we normally focus on national politics, I feel compelled to write a piece on this. Al Roney, who has held the 9am-12pm slot at WGY for years, is getting replaced by Glenn Beck. The news has been sudden, and conflicting commercials on WGY say that Beck is starting either today or Monday.
Now, I don't know why Roney is being fired all of a sudden. Maybe his ratings were poor, maybe GY wants to go in another direction, maybe Mr. Roney did something bad. I do not know. However, something I do know is that I have been listening to Al Roney's show for years and I have never been disappointed. Not only was it a good show, it was by far the best local radio show.
I do remember that Glenn Beck was in the 9am-11:35am slot before Al Roney (at 11:35 they put on Paul Harvey for twenty minutes). It could be that WGY misses the days of Beck. If this goes through, and it appears it will, maybe Mr. Roney could get a later timeslot.
So, from all of us here at Jumping in Pools, we'll miss you Al.
