Got some good info from inside Entercom hallowed halls that Jody will definitely be joining the show. If Marty and she are together long enough, she can help him develop into a good host as she has been great along with with Andy Savage. Marty will be lead, though, and will be great.
SO. I hear Marty in the Morning, but so far no Jody. Is the Mountain saving money by eliminating a position? Or is Jody to come later? Anybody know? I was looking forward to Jody working with Marty. By himself Marty kind of annoys me. I can't imagine him making much of an impact in the market in mornings.
Bigger picture, the forced retirement of Mike West (no doubt the best quality personality on the station) leaves a bit of a bad taste in my mouth. And the music seems to be changing slowly too- more and more mainstream rock sounding; less and less folk, reggae or world-music mixed in. The "Green Report" and the "Mountain Green Team" seem to have been eliminated or marginalized for some time now. What was once a very fun and VERY SEATTLE station is becoming very dull.
My best to Marty and I hope they do pick up Jody and the new Music Director (have they hired one yet? I lost track) gets up to speed and the station doesn't coast into irrelevance.
