    Richie Whitt and Greg Williams were apparently fired from 105.3 The Fan yesterday. I looked on line for news on what happened, but couldn't find any.

    I'm curious as to the reason. Anyone know?

    Greggo has a history of drug abuse...probably what this issue is.

    That would be disappointing. Greggo has been clean for quite a while now. I'd hate for him to have relapsed.

    I think there was a similar situation when he was with the ticket and at the time they would not talk about the reason why he was gone and I think it was because they were not allowed to talk about it at the time.

    Of course it could be something completely different and maybe the station wanted to go in another direction.

    There was footage of him last year I think it was messed up on the air... too bad as he was entertaining...

    I was with The Ticket from the start. Greggo was on the straight and narrow the first few years, then he became a jerk. Rude to fans at Ticket functions, not showing up on time...

    This guy was making $500,000 per year... that's righteous bucks...

    Well, it's pretty bad that they couldn't beat the curmudgeonly old galloway, lol!

    I have no opinion on The Hardline. The Ticket's signal is so weak I can't always pick it up while driving. Perhaps if their signal was stronger I'd try to listen.

    I don't care for ESPN, or Galloway, so the only time I am on that station is for the Ranger games.

    Greggo needs to come full circle and return to the Hardline.

    He burned those bridges way too severely...actually both sides did...that that'll NEVER happen.

    He was given multiple chances and assistance, to straighten himself out, but he only got worse.

    Man I can't wait until they get rid of the Fan's morning crew....

    Both those guys are annoying Choppy and Sirhan Sirhan or whatever his name is..

    The show was terrible and had horribly low ratings.

    .

    Try 104.1 FM instead of 1310 AM. Depending on where I am around town 1 works better then the other.

    I actually liked RAGE, but mainly because I liked Greggo so much from his Hardline days. Felt kind of sorry for Greggo. As someone mentioned before, the Hardline from 10-15 years ago was awesome.

    But like others i really lost interest due to the poor signal on AM. By the time they became availalbe on 104.1, I had already swtiched over to The Fan and ESPN radio.

    The crap that The Fan is throwing out there on the RAGE timeslot is horrible. Ben and Skin coming back to the FAN? Can they hang with Hardline and Galloway at that time slot?

    I wasn't the biggest fan of either show, but the absence of RAGE on 105.3 and Ben and Skin on 103.3 have left the local FM stations incredibly dry.

    Elf and Slater are the only thing keeping me on 105.3.

    I just dont like Elf and Slater together. Elf is good from his Ticket days, and was so much better with Josh Lewin.

    I just dont buy Slater's sports knowledge. She's hot though.

    Really like the Gbag nation with Gavin Dawson and Chris Arnold.
