I hated that JJG put him as the head, before he unexpectedly passed away in October 2011. The format of old-time standards/oldies/community talk could have been continued. Instead, he f***ed with the formats.
The unforgettable music, spot-on news/weather reports (especially during extreme weather), and shorter days made 1530 fun to listen to. The listener base was there and Joe's show in the AM (then Johnny Dodd after 2008) reflected it.
FOX Sports >>>>> ESPN. They don't get political or rant uncontrollably over bull**** no one cares about. They know their sports and don't push/shove baseball down our throats all year long.
So, Matt finally found the one format that works, and 1530 has potential to grow (just like with finding the format, that potential will take time). He's smart for DITCHING alternative crap (Q-101 thing).
