Default 107.5 is terrible

I'm just venting in this forum bc it's close to football season.
Aside from carrying the local feed for games, 107.5 has to be the worst sports radio in the state. The morning show may as well just be recorded and played back every morning. It's the same every single day: no in-depth sports discussion (because only 1 person there knows anything and Tommy only remembers pre-1980), that Benji guy is AWFUL, "the way we were"??? oh let's not forget the "X days until kickoff so let's list all the players that wore X"...
Is it too much to ask for a local sports talk morning show to actually discuss SPORTS? I seriously doubt any of the guys on this show could tell the difference between a 3-4 and a Nickel defense. 560 isn't much better but at least they talk about sports (sometimes). Rant over, thanks for listening.

I disagree. The morning show and 12pm hour are bad. The rest of the programming is very good.

DP Show...1PM and 4PM

I agree with this... I no longer listen in the morning, but enjoy Jay and Michael and then Heath is good as well.

The halftime show with jay phillips and michael haney is pretty good and heath cline is also pretty knowledgeable... they are fans but they are also realist and willing to disagree with coaches or the school .. and pretty objective ive always enjoyed them... never really listened to the morning show but that is the one i usually see people complain about

Default Re: 107.5 is terrible

I want to jump in on this...afternoons are usually decent and sometimes pretty good. The morning show has to be the bottom of the lineup. Cannot stand the amateur hour stuff they are doing. There seems to be no plan, no rehearsals, and barely any sports. The only halfway decent thing they do is replay interviews from other journalists. Even their guests are usually high school coaches and that's about it except for Scott Hood, who I can also barely listen to. He is like listening to the mushmouth car talk people from npr. Plus, offers up nothing that I didn't read on cockytalk over 24 hours ago. Benji is awful as a front man; talks over everyone, the transitions are awful, and has to be one of the most unfunny people on radio.

I only listen to the morning show during football season for reasons above. I listen to the afternoon show with Heath on my way home from work every day.

Can barely listen to the morning show or lunchtime, unless they are playing clips of the coaches/players interviews, I find myself trying not to change the station. Heath Kline is by far the most knowledgeable about sports in general of anyone on 107.5, and what I like about him, Jay and Michael Haney is they all seem very even keeled, and call things like they are, not just rah rah everything at USC is great. They call a spade a spade. I can't stand a homer station that tells you everything is great when its a dumpster fire. I really enjoy listening to Jay, Michael, and Heath.

I'm posting in hopes that someone from 107.5 will read this and do something about it.

The morning show is impossible. Same reasons as everyone else: little to no sports, way too many commercials (especially the lengthy on air plugs), and boring personalities.

I enjoy the rest of their programming. The morning show has just gotten worse recently and I can't do it anymore. Until they make a change it's 560 from morning to noon.

People here have obviously never listened to wccp sideshow we have up here. U want amateur hour u can get it all day. Strangely the biggest homer Philpott has the best show up here. Will agree the games morning show is pretty bad but to have dp show jay Phillips and heath Cline are all pretty good.

I love 107.5. They're a big pillar of the Columbia and Gamecock communities, and the show content is interesting for the most part. I like that they've been interviewing High School Coaches every day - adds some interesting local color. The hosts really are professionals, I'd take 107.5 over your WCCPs any day.

I hate that about talk/sports radio in general. "this phone line sponsored by angelos pizza;" traffic report sponsored by billy's roofing; this list of things that happened in sports history sponsored by bud light; "let me take a minute to talk about xyz car dealer and how they treated me right when I got my oil changed" And those are the non-commercials.

Well even if we do get some really good sports radio hosts in Columbia who are funny and knowledgable the stations will fire them.
