CBS is Ruining the Jungle
« on: September 21, 2022, 06:47:42 am »
The Jungle used to be SO DIFFERENT than every other show on radio. Over the last several years, the show is getting watered down. A lot less smack nowadays, allowing more time for crappy takes, and NOW we hear Rome spinning for a daily CALLER SEGMENT? You know that the suits are telling him, "We need more listener involvement with the show." Next thing you know, they say he has to have a "Rome's Weekly Top 5 Moments" or something stupid. Maybe it's just me, but the show is dying and CBS is to blame.

I don't like the caller segment idea.

Much better to have them sprinkled across the show, and if a call wrecks the show, even better.

Rome did that himself about 15 years ago
