    Finebaum finally leaves WJOX

    Move this to non-sports if needed, but it's breaking now that Finebaum has finally left WJOX. After a 3 month no-compete, look for him to join 97.3 in Birmingham.

    The only downside for me, personally, is the Roundtable is moving to 2-6.

    Re: Finebaum finally leaves WJOX

    I'd started to listen to 97.3 a bit more anyway--Scarbinsky isn't nearly the twit he seems to be in print. While Finebaum does great interviews, his regular callers set my teeth on edge.
    I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.

    Re: Finebaum finally leaves WJOX

    So glad to hear this! I can't take his regular callers and the lack of real football discussion. And even though he gets the biggest personalities for interviews, the interviews themselves are really pathetic. He doesn't ask the questions you want answered, in my opinion.

    Any ideas on who might fill the mid-day slot?

    Does that mean his satellite radio show is canceled? Agreed, many of the callers are irritating but it's still nice to listen to the guests.

    The Rondtable is moving from 10-2 to 2-6.

    His satellite show will also be gone as it was just a mirror of the WJOX show. He has a no-compete for the next 3 months.

    So will satelite pick it back up in 3 months? It seems to make no sense for them not to have him back on satelite and have a national audience.

    I imagine that all will be worked out when he finds his new home... whether it's locally with 97.3, which is the leader in the clubhouse, or a national outlet.

    Oh man! I loved the roundtable when I walked at 10am! I can live without Finebaum until a breaking scandalous story about Auburn surfaces. haha

    I know... I work out of my house, and the roundtable is what I listen to from 10-2. It's going to be hard to make a change.

    I wonder what the guys think about changing their schedule. I bet they liked getting off the air in the early afternoon.


    So what is taking their spot from 10-2?

    No idea on the 10-2. I'm also guessing the Roundtable crew knew this was always the plan since Finebaum's exit has been in the works for months.

    Maybe, but the rush hour time slot gets a lot more ratings.

    I really like some of the young guys that work on Sat. mornings during the season on the JOX Gameday. Maybe something will come of that.
