    Re: Finebaum finally leaves WJOX

    He'll be back, trust me on this. It was set before he let the contract expire.

    Re: Finebaum finally leaves WJOX

    Employees of 97.3 do not know for certain if he'll end up there. I do know some employees are hoping their show doesn't get the boot because of his show moving.

    Yes they did very well in that slot when Jox was AM, no reason to assume they wont do the same now.

Also, he seems to have been star-struck on his last visit to NYC and is probably chomping at the bit to get back up there.
    I look for him to take his show to a larger market, or at least to an area that will support his burgeoning ego. Problem is, he won't find a market that is as big on football as are the folks in Alabama.
    But who knows? Maybe he'll grow to love basketball and soccer.
    He isn't going anywhere, look for him to stay in the state.

    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.
    Satellite wouldn't be competition, though.

    Only if he moved to Montgomery. He could choose ESPN radio and be played in B'ham, he just can't go to a "local" station like 97.3 and broadcast his show. I doubt he'll be on anywhere the next 3 months if what I heard is true.

    I only rarely catch the Sports Czars, but I would take them over Howell any day.

    They're just a bunch of rednecks talking sports just like every other redneck does and they don't really claim to be anything else.

    Howell claims to be something of an expert, and yet he is horribly bad. I've tried to listen when there's a big game coming up, or some sports story is breaking, but I can't do it. He won't go an entire show without making glaring factual errors, often worse than his callers. A week or so ago, he said it was completely against NCAA rules for scholarship athletes to have part time jobs. A caller questioned him and he repeated his assertion. He was so sure, I had to google it when I got home to make sure I hadn't missed some recent rules change.

    Re: Finebaum finally leaves WJOX

    Still some confusion as to whether or not other markets are receiving a show from Finebaum.

    Re: Finebaum finally leaves WJOX

    I enjoy his interviews but I can't listen regularly because of the idiot callers. Someone calls in and rambles for about five minutes and then someone else calls in and talks smack to whoever just called. Just not interesting to me.

    Back in the early 1990s, Paul had a nighttime show on a Birmingham station. Then he suddenly quit and it was announced he'd be joining another station and paired with Matt Coulter, who had a show there. Coulter promptly quit and moved to Paul's old station. Maybe he'll move back to Jox. Or call Herb Winches from retirement.

    I can only listen in the afternoons so I'm stuck with the Czars. They aren't bad, but I'd rather hear the roundtable.

    Finebaum finally leaves WJOX

    Thank god. I could never stand him and I hope his new show doesn't get picked up by xm radio. I really enjoyed the beer bath he got by the UGA fans after the 08 blackout in Athens, that was awesome.

    His website redirects to the generic Cumulus Media home page.

    If he were still on the air somewhere...you would think his website would still be up and running.
    I remember my first game as a child and the amazing feeling I got when I first walked into Bryant-Denny. I still get that same feeling every single game.
