I always enjoyed Baker. I remember the first day he came on the air. I followed, a bit passively, from station to station as Cheap Channel tried to decide where to put him. I must admit, though -- even as a big fan -- that he had lost much of his luster. I was never a fan of Barry, but he seems to have found his stride. Neither is a superstar, both think they are. But the show is a bit higher brow now. I always thought Chris was the dumbest guy in the room. Barry at least seems to be smart. I think he tries harder than Baker did, because Baker had become lazy.
For what it's worth, I wish Chris the best, and I think the move will be good for him. And I'm willing to give Barry a chance for a while to see how he develops.
Thanks for the update, I wondered what happened to Chris.
Wait, I thought you just said:http://www.radio-info.com/smf/index.php/topic,89474.msg681442.html#msg681442
I dealt with Chris Baker twice. Let me tell you: turd. Bad attitude, prima donna, no count. I didn't like him at all. Not a nice guy. Glad he's gone. He was a bad apple. I spoke to a friend who used to do lives with him. Trust me, bad guy.
