Chris Randolph Joins 97.5 WAMZ

In early October news dropped that Bobby Jack Murphy was no longer with WAMZ (a Clear Channel station) in Louisville. Dozens of readers have commented and emailed to share their stories.

But since then, WAMZ has been on the hunt for a replacement and the station has hired Chris Randolph from WMTX in Tampa. He’ll join Mel on the 5:00 to 10:00 A.M. wake-up shift. Randolph is a Shelbyville native and may be familiar to metro area radio listeners from his days on WDJZ, 98.9 KISS-FM and WQMF.

WAMZ Program Director Coyote Calhoun had this to say: “We are very excited to add this experienced market veteran to the WAMZ morning show. Chris has enjoyed much success in Louisville. We feel very fortunate to have found someone who knows the market so well and loves its people.”

And in Randolph’s own words, “The chance to work with Coyote Calhoun is a once-in-lifetime opportunity. He is one of the very reasons I’m in the business. I can’t wait to get started at one of the most highly-rated, legendary Country stations in America.” It looks like Randolph is excited to be back in town.

Will listeners welcome him with open arms?

Governor Beshear Just on Francene’s Show

Governor Steve Beshear was just on Francene.

“Quite honestly, Francene, I got a little chuckle out of it. It’s amazing the ingenuity of folks and what they can do these days… it is cut and pasted and spliced.”

He then compared the profanity-filled rant from Mongiardo it to the casino/slot machine mail piece of him. It’s clearly not randomly pieced together. The only editing is to put two separate recording sessions together.

Let’s listen again just to be safe:

He wouldn’t say the clip was a fake when pressed. Said Mongiardo says it’s doctored. “We’re not gonna allow these kind of political shenanigans.”

What’d Francene have to say about it all?

Page One & The ‘Ville Voice on TeeVee

This week we discuss Jason Stinson (no mention of his ridiculous religious statements), stupid rumors about Heather French Henry and the mayoral race (for the record, we did not hear from reliable source that she’s considering this race, not sure why that was said on television), something about Kentucky Kingdom and a roller coaster, yadda yadda, check it out.

It’s a shame Fox 41 felt the need to over-hype this stupid Heather French Henry rumor. How is a non-credible rumor – which we publicly attacked for being pure hilarity – more important than the Stinson case or any number of issues? Come on, Fox, let’s get real and quit it with the hype when it comes to doing the news. It’s not cool to do just because it’s “sexy” to discuss someone who used to work for you.

Still think they should hire Dan Spangler.
