I'm not so sure about the "who" at this point, but I'd like to comment on the "what". I occasionally listen to 101.5 in the afternoons and their topics are hardly local. They are usually stale, generic topics that have been beaten to death over the years. For example I have heard countless segments about airport security and a discussion on what listeners have been caught with in the security line. I have also heard topics like who does the grocery shopping in your family, and are men bad at grocery shopping. Again, not exactly riveting talk radio, and certainly not topics on local issues.
I can't agree with you more, friends, ever since Walter Sabo left NJ101.5 WKXW-FM radio many topics have been lame and not local. The latest M/S/U ratings have the station sinking down into the 4's with their cume steadily dropping month after month. http://www.radio-info.com/markets/middlesex-somerset-union
