Sure would like to know who bought it? Maybe I could find a new job......in the land of sunshine and warmth...
From RWM's face book page
Roger W. Morgan Joining the ranks of the unemployed is a humbling experience. I was caught off guard by the decision to discontinue "Free Speech". It has been so much a part of my life -- every week for more than 6 years. I felt the changes coming, but losing touch with all of you without discussing it on the air was the toughest part. Our love to each of you.
@DixieChick, I too never listened to his show after the first year, but I would suggest that he was not so much a "fake" as a personality...under the showmanship there is, or seems to be, a genuine good-natured person. Over the years I worked alongside "celebrities" with far less character.
Whether you agreed or disagreed with RWM's point of view you have to admit he did some good things for the islands such as participation in charitable organizations and the much needed attempt at cleaning up the island of litter. I was a fan of the show even though it seem as if the same people called all the time. I used to get a laugh out of the one caller who found it necessary to give the full name and title of whomever he was talking about, I think his first name was Wayne. For me the only good thing about the show no longer being on the air is at least we don't have to hear from that arrogant lady from Vermont.
Maybe the can give the time slot to Steve Nisky.
I just wonder how many of us would be willing to go public and admit our business had failed, we were broke and unemployed. I really do think that Roger loved STX and to leave must have hurt particularly since he came here because it was the dying of one of his children wish to come to STX?
I agree with you Jim Dandy.
I read the statements from people that RWM had previously been involved with shenanigans, well what is your proof. If you are going to attack someone's character present some evidence to prove your accusations.
Steve Nisky isn't that bad, a little to mellow. I would not mind him having the morning (or better yet evening) slot as long as he doesn't have that poetry lady on everyday (maybe once a month or season would be ok).
Who bought the station?
I was partly teasing (but only partly) about Steve. I've known him for nearly 20 years.
Would LOVE to know who bought the station. Heard a rumor (actual cash value: $0.00) that it may have been Mosler to provide himself with an election vehicle. That one sent a shiver up my spine.
So this is the story in the Source today:
