Skip to comments.Fans of Quinn and Rose Daily Discussion - Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Quinn and Rose are off the air, and we await word that they are returning soon. (Stand by) Meanwhile, our friendly group of dedicated FReeper Q&R fans will meet in our usual spot - same time, same station - as we always have! So grab your coffee - or whatever you choose to start your day - and drop in for some political chit-chat, or just to shoot the breeze! We are all coming from - or going to - work, but we all stop in to say hi! Feel free to join us!
So the left has already started the snarky remarks on the voy forum. Interesting the race card is played.
WJAS will continue playing to an aging white audience, just in another area.
That’s sure forward-looking on Iorio’s part. I guess he figures it’ll be a counterpart to WESA. Hey, maybe Chilly Billy could move to 90.5. Naaah. The snobs at Bedford Square wouldn’t go for that.
I just looked at yesterday’s thread. LOL! Funny how the babysitting just took it out of me. Didn’t even bother to check the thread after I got home!
Now I know why old women don’t have babies!! It’s starting to come back to me now though. I’m just getting back to speed - been a loooooonnnnngggggg time since I changed a diaper!
So excited about Quinn & Rose! :-))
Posted by prisoner6 on yesterday’s thread!:
Not totally confirmed BUT this is inline with my sources!
There was a change in time off scheduling at work with Bogut off Monday. Changes appear IMMINENT!
A bit of sadness Chris Shovelin is a VERY GOOD friend and will probably lose his job...at least on air. He MAY keep his Promotions Director job but right now everything is up in the air.
This is from Voy forums and several other sources.
Radio Rumors Melvin, 11:34:33 07/29/14 Tue 
A few Pittsburgh radio rumors for you: 104.7 switches to country format. 970 takes the syndicated shows from 104.7. A new signal is moved in to move the ESPN Radio stuff to.
Also, Frank Iorios WJAS (just sold to him by Renda)is going talk with Quinn and Rose. Cardille, Bogut, and Shovlin are not part of the station. Shovlin may or may not be out at Renda. Cardille will be gone, and Bogut may do something with KQV.
You heard it here, first (or perhaps, second)
Yup! The babysitting is a KILLER! Even mrs p6 is starting to get worn out from it.
So one thing to keep in mind about Q&R and WJAS. The deal still isn’t written in stone. Lots of things could still happen. That said, the voy forum post is exactly what I have been hearing but I get it from other sources.
Still unknown is what happens to the rest of the Premiere line up, Rush et al. There are several possibilities but I can’t go into them.
Also is what day part Q&R would have.
As I said the whole deal could still fall through. The reason for the posting was to show that something is starting to happen. The long nightmare may be coming to and end!
The new owner does have the Premiere line up on his other talk station so he might be able to bring them on when their current contract expires. IIRC that is within a year.
In the meantime they would probably go to 970 AM if it also goes talk. 970 may do that just to keep them off WJAS. My stations have contracted with programs but not aired them just to keep them of other stations. It’s fairly common.
WJAS could bring in Levin, Ramsey and others to round things out. That might not be a bad move. Fresh voices.
I continue to stress it is too early to celebrate! I am posting only info that is publicly available elsewhere. There may be disinfo being spread too.
There are some things I have access to that I cannot post or talk about publicly. Additionally I could be very wrong. You must decide and draw your own conclusions.
Ohhh...I forgot something!
Remember the young guy WPGB bought in to do a late shift during the week? Andy Dean. Most of us weren’t thrilled with him.
In Talkers trade paper it is reported he is leaving radio totally! He will pursue other career choices. His last broadcast is mid September.
That may indicate a time frame for when all the changes will be made...
Haven’t heard anything from Rose in awhile. No e-mails. Nothing on Twitter. When there is something concrete about to happen, she’ll probably let her fans know via e-mail. She has several e-mail fan lists. I’m on at least two of them. Hopefully we’ll get a heads up from her when something is about to happen.
Sorry to hear about Cardille, Bogut and Shovlin. All real gentlemen and stand-up guys from what I know.
