I listened to Howie for years, then switched to Jay.
But Jay lost me last year during the election cycle with his constant negativity about Bush's election prospects. Also, I really got tired of listening to him bash Bush on Iraq.
So now I just switch back and forth between them.
Jay later apologized and said he had made a mistake in regard to his stance that he could not vote for Bush. Sometimes Jay is wrong, but the best and brightest in the listening audience will call the show and go on the air with him to pull him through it.
"Jay lost me last year during the election cycle with his constant negativity about Bush's election prospects" - same here, at that time I just stopped listening to Jay, now I switch to him when Howie goes in to commercials. And what makes Jay the brilliant mind military strategy he is today? It must be all those years he spent in the army/navy, ... oh never mind.
