    They did but ultimately he got fired by a private company.

    If anyone claims his free speech was violated, they are clueless.

    Good. He was a xenophobe deadbeat. And an irrelevant hockey 'mind'.

    As a Habs fan though, got to love the fact he cost the Booins at least one cup in the 70's.

    Despite everything, he was extremely popular. I thought he was on a one minute delay, where was the producer? The guy is 85, so . . .

    He doesn't care that he got fired . He's happy to be done with that sinking ship of a network.

    Tim & Sid are on Sportsnet if I’m not mistaken which has an affiliation with the CBC.

    I know Jay and Dan are on TSN but just as a comparable, who do you like better: Tim & Sid or Jay and Dan?

    I always liked Jay and Dan and was happy they returned to Canada after their US stint.

    People are talking about Burke for replacement, but I wonder if the other Maclean, Doug, could be an interesting choice too. He just got canned from [email protected] so he would have the time.

    Moving on to the post-Cherry era, who does everyone see as inheriting his soapbox and what kind of format would it have?

    Does Marinaro ever talk about anything but food? Jesus, they're having a conversation about something and he starts talking about food all the time.

    It’s like he’s sending a loud SOS to all the restaurants and pastry shops in the city.

    Good thing he wears pants with an expandable waistband. :sarcasm:

    Mangia, mangia!

    Aside from Melnick, they’re all getting paid miserly salaries on 690. So except for Nilan and Melnick, Marinaro and the rest of them latch on to whatever promos and freebies they can get.

    Marinaro is just more shameless about it. His pretend Ted Tevan schtick is abhorrent and sounds hollow.

    I think Marinaro is good at hooking sponsors, so that justifies his ongoing employment. To use a phrase that may be a little too on point, he pays for his plate. It is actually a good survival technique for any radio personality - bring in sponsors, and buddy up to them like they are your own clients. Just like lawyers and accountants take clients for meals, golf, send them tickets etc. Build a relationship.

    We closed the Cherry thread for a reason. Use the main board thread if you want to talk about it.

    Marc Denis who is usually composed and professional lost his cool during a radio segment he regularly does:



    The host of the the show took to making repeated attacks or criticism of Denis, at which points Denis completely lost it and can be heard making these choice quotes:

    "As-tu écouté ce que j'ai dit à propos de Merzlikins hier matin? J'fais mes devoirs, cr*sse!"
    "Si tu veux pu en entendre parler, Ray ost* ferme ton micro!"
    "Si ça t'intéresse pu, change de job, Ray. Tabarn*k!"


    Denis is using several expletives in French and on the last one, he's telling the host of the show that he should find another job, lol.

    I can see why radio personalities will do this except that how they do it is also important since unlike lawyers cavorting on golf courses and what not, the radio people are exposed -- everything they do is in the public eye and not doing it right can lead to backlash and ridicule.

    It's the main board or not on HF. We have other things to do than delete 50%+ of the posts because people can't follow the rules.

    Fans and animators have sometimes the same or different opinions. And that's how it works. It's the nature of human beings as simple as all that. So overall what I despise during conversations is when these following actions are happening. Old daddy-jokes. Roasts. Cutting off the speech. Being passive-aggressive. Stonewalling. You aren't talking with your friends.

    Enough of praising and off-topics nonstop. Let's talk straightly about the real stuffs and sincere opinions.

    Act yourself like an expert and experts. Nobody holds the pure truth. Just listen in the worst case. Respect is the most important after all.

    Also all the plugs for Baton Rouge/AutoPrix and all the other stuff is asinine.
    I understand they need to make money somehow , but it becomes ridiculous sometimes (the frequency).
