No more madhouse?

I just got an email from Q101 letting me know that, after Friday, Mancow’s Morning Madhouse will no longer have a home on the station. I can’t find any confirmation on Mancow’s site, and the Q101 homepage is currently throwing an error from an overworked server. Anyone else hear anything? From the email…

We are building an unconventional new show that will debut this fall.  It will be a fun, smart, entertaining show that will be different from the other morning shows on the air.

That means we have to part ways with Mancow’s Morning Madhouse.  It is been eight great years and we hope you’ll join us for our final broadcast this Friday.  Then, we’ll kick off the Summer of Shuffle.

It just seems to be very strange that no station will be carrying the program in Mancow’s hometown. I am assuming that some other station is waiting in the wings to snap it up?

    Ugh. Thank goodness. Mancow caters to the lowest common denominator. Good riddance.

    Just saw this in the Trib, was going to post, my first in a month, but ya beat me to it! Ah, it’s about time he’s gone. The Trib also has a comment page available for people to express their joy/rage…but it’s empty…fitting, I think.

    So who even listens to commercial radio these days? I haven’t heard that guy’s voice in 5 years and hope it lasts much longer. Shuffle? That’s no way for a radio station to operate. That’s something we do with our iPod when we get lazy.
