The people who pronounced the Fan DOA mostly wanted 93.7 to go urban. (Having said that, the ratings would be absolutely amazing if the product wasn't awful).
I don't disagree ... but what specifically is awful about 93.7 the fan?
Where do I start?
Alexander brings nothing. No insights, no comedy, nothing.
Gianotti is a good sidekick who has to run the show.
New York accents all over the station. I half expect the ID to "New Jersey's 93.7 the Fan".
No chemistry, as pointed out by Boss.
Vinnie brings nothing. He's a pleasant enough guy and people seem to like him, but he's a lifelong baseball guy and that's all he knows.
I know they want to focus locally, but sometimes they will manufacture a really stupid local topic and ignore a national story that might be worth discussing.
Seibel is the best talent on the station but there are too many people on in the afternoon, specifically Josh Miller, who adds nothing.
They seem to feel that what people here want to do, more than anything else, is call in and talk about how great their teams are. A valid assumption in New York, where people would do entire shows on the greatness of Derek Jeter if you let them, not so much here.
They let callers go on too long.
Bottom line is they hired a bunch of TV people and writers, and none of them are good talk show hosts. It doesn't always translate.
But what do I know... I like Colin Cowherd on ESPN and to say he bombed here would be an understatement.
