The Chiefs pre season game with the Saints was carried on 590 on Friday night.  Might be a good,sign for,the season being on the radio in Omaha.

Dropped the Chiefs?   They are still listed for the 2013 season as an Affiliate On the Chiefs Radio Network web site.

You see all kinds of atypical broadcasters covering pre-season NFL games. I wouldn't get your hopes up.

They had dropped the Chiefs a couple years ago.  Sounds like they are back on 590.

Did they say anything about where he is going or a Replacement?

The new person would be the 5th host in the history of the show:
Kevin Kugler & Bob Bruce
Kevin Kugler & Mike'l Severe
Mikel Severe & John Bishop
John Bishop & ???

2. Anyone know if he is staying in the market?
3. Wish we could get Kevin Kugler back.

I use to listen to 1620 from 11am to 5:30pm almost daily. There were some days that I would mix it up a bit. However once they moved Rome to 1180, I don't think I have listened to 1620 for more than an hour or two a week since. Now I move around the dial, catch up on podcast, or listen to Pandora.

I have never warmed up to Kohn Bishop, and now with Severe leaving, I don't know if they could find someone that I could appreciate. Severe is not saying where he is going, but after Friday I think they will tell. Sounds like he got a offer hr couldn't refuse, don't know if it is in radio or tv or both...

This.

I suspect they might bring Rome back to his original slot, and pair Bishop up with Nick Bahe.

Or . . . maybe they'll move the morning show to afternoons and let Bishop go back to Lincoln for a regular timeslot. For as bad as Unsportsmanlike Conduct has become, Sharp and Benning have been really good.

I find it interesting that he will go head to head in his old time slot and the Zone let him stay on for a week after the anouncment of him leaving took place. On another note I wounder what this will do to have OWH staff avaialbe as guests on other local radio shows? Could be interesting. I think the new show will gain a following and I am guessing there is a fair amount of on line listeners for the Zone now since their on air signal is not the strongest.

Not sure why they did that. Did they know in time to make a change?

Online radio works if you have the time to sit at your internet location for two hours. It works if you are listening to music, where you tend to listen to 3 minute chunks at a time, so connection durability is less or a problem. Try watching a 15 minute long YouTube video without it pausing on you via a 2 bar WiFi connection, not the same. It works if you have a data plan that gives you the WiFi download capacity and the access points while out driving. If I have to pay the OWH and then pay the ISP to listen to something I rarely listen to know, I am probably going to pass. Not sure this idea is truly ready for prime time.

Who is Jay foreman?


Jamal A. Foreman (born February 18, 1976 in Eden Prairie, Minnesota) is a former American football linebacker in the National Football League with the Buffalo Bills, the Houston Texans, and the New York Giants. He played college football at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and was drafted in the fifth round of the 1999 NFL Draft. After retiring, he started a business called Foreman Fitness. He is the son of Chuck Foreman.


I think he has done some radio before and reporting...

He's had a call in session on Sharp and Benning's show in the morning for like six months or so now, he is a friend of Benning. I really hope he is not permanent, he doesn't really add too much and doesn't have a good radio personality.

I think they are using temporary fill-in hosts for the time being. I think this announcement took 1620 by surprise.

They didn't announce Severe was going to do a competing show. The World-Herald held it until his 1620 show ended on Friday evening.

I question whether an online show can truly be competitive with radio at this time. AM radios are standard equipment in every car built in the last 25 years, and you don't have to worry about data consumption. And I think the signal is more dependable in the metro area.

The big advantage of online is that it exposes Severe worldwide. I know that the online stream increases the reach of the show and makes it accessible to Husker fans everywhere. But is that a marketable thing? I know that 1620 has struggled with their online sales on the stream. Can the World-Herald do it better? I suspect not; the World-Herald has tried lots of things to try and keep up and stay relevant with technology, and most usually end up failing (or being late to the game if they do get it to work.)

Anybody remember their "news channel" with former channel 3 anchor Jeff Jordan in the early 80's? Or their Minitel experiment about 10 years later?

5 years ago 100% of the Sports Talk I listened to was on the radio. Now about 90% is through my phone or computer, the other 10% on my radio in the car.


I think the OWH needs to be looked at in a different light. With Berkshire backing and all of the media buys that Berkshire has done, it could be a whole new ballgame for them.


I'd like to see 1620 convince John Baylor to make the move to Omaha.

It seems like 1180 the Deuce is having more and more problems remembering to flip the feed over to Jim Rome at 11am...

Since I stream, I just flip over to a differ station.

So has anyone been listing at all? I have not heard any of the show. How is it going if anyone is listining and is there call in segments. Wounder if there is any data available to the public that gives some idea of total listeners? Probably not anything like the boadcast ratings.

I can't seem to find any contact information for them, they don't have a Facebook or Twitter account, 1620's Facebook page hasn't been updated in almost a year....

don't have a radio station you can't run!
