  • bye bye 99x

    The radio station I’ve listened to since they were Power 99 in the 1990s is now gone. Some fuck heads named Cumulus Media Partners bought out the station a while back and has now fired the best radio personalities around. As of Friday, the station no longer exists as it did. As of Jan 21 it will be gone from the airwaves only to exist online. 99x could always be counted on for great music, and entertaining talk. I can’t believe that Cumulus is getting rid of them and completely retooling the station. Ever since they’ve been in charge they’ve made bad decisions, firing the wrong people, forcing format changes and generally just doing bad for the station. With shitty management, no station can succeed. I hope all the personalities get snapped up quick, because I’ll be anxious to listen to them on their new stations. 99x isn’t 99x without the people who founded it, I guess Cumulus doesn’t understand that.

    *Oh, I’ve also just removed my link to them, no point in listening to them anymore is there?
