If True, WLS 890 AM Now SUCKS

UPDATE, FEB. 11, 2010: Pink slip for Erich 'Mancow' Muller - Chicago Tribune Now even conservative WLS 890 AM in Chicago is joining in the Dumbing Down of America. In a bizarre move, management of WLS has decided to replace funny, intelligent host Jerry Agar with vulgar, idiot host Mancow Muller. The Chicago Tribune reports today: Erich "Mancow" Muller, who lost his last full-time Chicago radio job 27 months ago, has agreed to host a weekday talk show for Citadel Broadcasting's WLS-AM 890.Mike Fowler, WLS-AM's president and general manager, confirmed that Muller will replace Jerry Agar in the 9-to-11 a.m. slot, beginning Monday. For his first week, he will be paired with Pat Cassidy, who joined WLS from WBBM-AM 780 this summer. Tragic. I guess I'll have to start listening to WIND 560 AM more. Sorry WLS, you've lost a lot of listeners with this stupid move. Agar has been a frequent sit-in for nationally syndicated talk show host Mark Levin. I have a feeling that we haven't heard the last of Jerry Agar. RELATED: The Bench - On the Air at WLS * Agar the Magnificent * Jerry Agar, Regular Guy
