KGO Radio Jumps The Shark: More News, Less Talk (Essay)

KGO Radio Jumps The Shark: More News, Less Talk (Essay)

I was listening to The Gene Burns Program on KGO Radio (810AM) in my car after getting off work and heading home for the night when he said that it was the middle of the week, Wednesday, November 16, 2011, and started talking about whether or not gun owners should be required to have a license and safety training. Actually, it was Thursday, December 1, 2011, and gun ownership wasn’t the pressing topic for that day. This was rather odd. If Gene Burns wasn’t available, the station would have someone else step in for him without having rebroadcast an old show. As I ran errands the next night, Gene Burns was discussing the Republican presidential debate that took place the night before. Actually, the last debate was on Tuesday, November 22, 2011, and the next one wasn’t until Saturday, December 10, 2011. Two nights of repeated shows was more than odd. I found out on the Internet that KGO Radio was switching to an all-news format, and, in the process, letting go the best talk-radio talent in the San Francisco Bay Area. Cumulus Media, KGO Radio’s current corporate overlords, decided to jump the shark by throwing away 40 years of broadcasting history in a hasty bid to improve ratings.

C.D. Reimer lives and works in Silicon Valley. His interests are ceramics, painting, tropical fish, and web programming. These keep him out of trouble when he’s not fixing broken users and consoling hurt computers.

After serving two tours through The Twilight Zone as a child and a young adult Christian, he writes about everyday reality that he often finds weird, twisted and absurd for being so normal.

He’s currently working on various short stories and his first novel, and blogs about writing and everything else when he's not busy writing fiction.
