I wonder if this is why he was mysteriously absent without reason?
It crossed my mind more than once or twice. The timing (coupled with the Thanksgiving experience I mentioned). Double whammy for Plante.
Why I think this may be more than a rumor is that Ingraham wants to be in Washington. Her ratings are probably stronger than Plante’s...and she would add diversity-— a FEMALE.
Yuk! I can’t bear to think of it.
As someone up-thread said:
“WMAL management seems to have a real gift for making stupid decisions.”
Laura has more pull than Plante nationwide and with Cumulus bigwigs — so I wouldn’t doubt if she replaces Chris on that time slot (9am - Noon).
Chris go do 5am - 9am — and that way we can get rid of Brian Wilson and Larry O’Connor, who talk over each other all the time! So annoying!
I still can’t find/haven’t heard anything about *why* he was AWOR for those days. Listening to Tue 11th Podcast now; will replay todays’ missed Podcast after tonite’s TGO stream.
