I have lived in Columbia, Greenville, Charlotte and Atlanta. I had a brief stint in New York but I don't count it. Back in the day, I worked in radio part time (mainly 104.7 but I did some work for other stations under the same umbrella) so I have a little insight.

The problem with radio in Columbia is layered.

The first layer, traditional radio is all but dead. It's an old format and doesn't make much sense in today's culture. Market approved information, culled and formatted. Pretending to be able to talk freely when in the end, do not piss those advertisers off. In sports, if you are the flagship, you have to not only keep the advertisers happy but despite having paid millions of dollars to be the flagship, you also have to make sure you don't piss off the university too much. Anyone who truly believes that the "flagship" station is anything but a propaganda machine, needs to truly take a look at the structure. I know that there is no one standing over the hosts approving their scripts but believe you me, there are systems of control in place. I will give credit where credit is due and say that some in Columbia do try and push the envelope but not the extent where you can fully trust their influence.

The second layer is that what would be required to make traditional radio in Columbia relevant (to Columbia) would piss off listeners. You can already see it with the shows that do venture a little off the beaten path. People complain about the morning show not being "sportsy" enough. The reality is that the sound byte, sound byte, 2:00 minute segment, live read, commercial, commercial, commercial format is archaic. What is popular now is long format, conversational entertainment. The hosts talk about anything and everything as well as the primary topic. Right or wrong, it is what it is. I prefer long format because (just like political shows), short format is constantly ending subjects before they can be explored properly. Think about political shows on CNN. Three people, in split screen, yelling talking points at each other for 30 seconds and then: "Moving on from this racism debate. A man in Wichita has been raising bees for women's rights." Nothing is resolved. Nothing is discussed. It's confirmation bias programming designed to drive ad revenue. Note: This forum itself could use a bit of a break from confirmation bias.

And the third issue is that Columbia is like, what... the 89th media market in the Country? It might as well be non-existent in the big picture. Each market has hundreds of shows. So, after the other 88 markets get their picks, we are stuck with the 89th best group of hosts in the country. Other than local guys that just want to be on the radio here. The ones that are half way decent do not stay. Guys like Benji. Guys that wish they could be comedians, who are not funny but are safe enough to air in an incredibly conservative market. So, you end up with shitty programming, being pushed by shitty programmers and voiced by shitty hosts. Who then in turn have to deal with shitty callers. Seriously. How often do you hear these same people call in all day long saying the exact same shit they said earlier in the day.

Switch to podcasting or (even though it too is getting outdated) satellite radio. I mean really, who goes to local radio to get news? Everything they talk about is usually on the net hours before. You go to "hear" the guys you like. You go to get their opinions. What can you really tell about someone from such brief interactions?

I dislike 107.5 as well. Mostly because if you have a negative opinion, you are shouted down. Wait... that seems familiar...
The thing is I actually like Jay Philips and think he is a good guy and is capable of doing good radio. It is just that he needs the right partner that is not afraid to counter his opinion and to settle him down. Duce was the absolutely perfect yin to Jay's yang. When they were together that was some really good radio. After he left Michael to some extent did this as well and it was still pretty good radio. When Tim was doing the show with him it was "alright" but not that great and don't get me wrong I like Tommy he is a great person and does a fantastic job with baseball but he is a terrible co-host for Jay. He is really nothing more than a glorified yes man to everything Jay says. He is so knowledgeable and that is fantastic when you are calling a baseball game but I don't want to hear 15 random sports fact every single day on a afternoon radio show. I think Tommy would probably be a great third host for that show but Jay really needs someone else in there that is not afraid to speak up and settle him down and offer a differing opinion. So yes while I am critical of Jay Philips I do appreciate him and think he is a good person and is capable of doing really good radio but just not in the current format.

I've never understood it when people to say this. The act of complaining is indeed complaining. You complain to air a grievance. Airing the grievance could be an end to itself.

Now, you could say that some people complain but they don't really have an issue with what they are complaining about. Then, I would have to point out that isn't really complaining. That is trolling.

You could say that some complain but have no investment in whether or not the complaining results in something. But, the complainer has no control over whether his complaining leads to a result so that is impossible to determine. So, through no fault of his or her own, they could be complaining just to complain. That isn't an indictment of their motivation.

If you are saying that some people complain for the sake of complaining, then yeah. Why else would you complain? It's not cooking. You cook to eat. Some people cook because they enjoy cooking but ultimately, the end result is food. Complaining has no predetermined end result.

What I think you really mean to say is that you disagree and see no issue with it and don't understand other people's issue. You don't see it as a "valid" complaint. You should own that thought instead of passive aggressively trying to make the problem less about your understanding of someone else's complaint and your disagreement with said complaint, than it is about the other person's desire or motivation to complain. In the end, it's not up to you if someone else's complaint is valid.

So, your statement is accurate. Some people do complain just to complain. I just think you meant it as indictment instead of a statement of what complaining is. I could be wrong.

Someone needs to create a drinking game for every time Jay Philips says "to that end". I think he's hit 4 on this Holbrook interview alone.

Anyone else hear Tommy say Chad was a "great coach". I had a good laugh after that statement.

Good to hear them capitulate and admit that it's time for Chad to be gone. Their defense of this garbage reminds me of the crap they spew in tiger town.

Did he say "great head coach" or just "great coach" as those are two different things?

I think he said "great coach"? Anyway, Tommy has to know how that will be interpreted. It makes him look like a company man with no backbone.

Jay is going to tow the party line until the very end. This is the guy that was defending Darrin Horn up until a hour before he was fired. They are the official station so they will never ever say what needs to be said and will always defend coaches until the very end and then after the fact say stuff like "look y'all we all knew he needed to be fired".

You will never hear harsh criticism of anything Gamecock on this station. They're employment is dependent on sunshine pumping. And Brent Johnson and Jay Philips are the worst. How two, easy listening FM radio jocks got in to sports radio is beyond me.

Disagree. I don't necessarily dislike Heath and I often agree with him. But, there is something about his cadence, tone and overall demeanor irritates me. I think I would prefer it if he didn't take as many calls. He takes the confident monkey approach to his callers and the callers make it too easy for him.

So far today, Jay has been talking about someone who let a snake loose in the congaree park and how he's very upset about it, for about 20-30 minutes now. Riveting sports talk, as always.
