    Talk stations belong on A.M or low power F.M not in between a top 40 (97.9) and a rock station (99.7)

    The new “98.9 THE ANSWER” will carry the usual SALEM lineup of BILL BENNETT, MIKE GALLAGHER, DENNIS PRAGER, MICHAEL MEDVED and HUGH HEWITT, plus DIAL GLOBAL’s DENNIS MILLER and COMPASS MEDIA NETWORKS’ LARS LARSON.

    Sounds like a really shitty lineup.

    Tried to listen to JACK FM today…instead I heard a man ranting about how the marriage of two consenting adults is dangerous for the moral composition of our nation and threatens our very existence. BUMMER.

    The “Jack” format is so 2008. Not that talk on the FM band is any better. The radio industry is soooo lost.

    As much as I dislike conservative talk radio, it makes me happy to know that I will never hear Jack FM insult the Italian Village ever again. If you aren’t familiar with their brand of “humor”, Jack FM had a brief spot where they said, “Broadcasting from a dumpy little building in the Italian Village.” Well that “dumpy little building” happens to be the beautifully restored Berry Boltworks builing which is on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Jack FM, You will be missed. ;)

    Heh. I heard that spot on there but didn’t realize where they operated from. The only thought I had when hearing it was “Weird… there’s not too many dumpy buildings in Italian Village these days…” ;)

    Is this the format Salem was trying to put on 102.5 a few months back, shortly after CD101 moved their frequency and relocated their studios and then had to re-organize itself under Randy Malloy? If so, the net loss to Columbus radio would’ve been even worse and Randy deserves all the gratitude in the world for fending off the takeover.

    Wow you guys really do get lost in your own mess, don’t you? I don’t think the point was to call the Italian Village a dump. It was their sense of humor. Due to format they had to humor their audience some how, other than random music. Another example was Low Paid Lee and JackTivities. Columbus needed a station like that. I believe it was the most unique station in Columbus. It was really the only station that PLAYED A TRUE MIX of the best hits from the last 40 years. You never knew what would be played next.

    Yeah… it was their sense of humor… but that doesn’t mean everyone will find it funny.

    This is a great building. Is calling it “dumpy” something everyone should find hilarious comedy gold?

    This will be like the 9 millionth format for this frequency since I was a kid.

    I guess I would have found that joke a lot funnier if they were broadcasting from a dumpy little building in Downtown Worthington. ;)

    As for the format, sure they had the most extensive ipod playlist ever.

    The window treatments do give it that “rural barn” sort of vibe that you see out there… though the black metal fencing certainly clashes with the New Albany white fence aesthetic. ;)
