Rumors on the Internets


Talk about conflicting information. A few people liked the new Boomer and Carton show; a lot of people didn't. There was a rumor that Rufino wasn't doing the engineering - but wait, he actually was. It looked like McCord was gone for good when Tracy Burgess did the news - but wait, he's actually "on vacation" until next week. Meh.


By this point, it almost seems pointless to keep speculating. All this Monday morning quarterbacking over where everyone is going is precisely what it is - Monday morning quarterbacking. (I could easily make a horrible pun here and suggest that WFAN really does have a "Monday morning quarterback" whenever Boomer hosts Mondays. But I will refrain.)


Anyway, I just hope that when Imus comes back, he gives a long, Bond-villain-esque speech that explains every motive and every mystery from the past four months. Myst was easier to solve than this situation.

It's almost to the point that if Imus comes back, fine...and if he doesn't come back...fine.

Imus stays silent much longer, he gonna be deemed as irrelevant when and if he does come back to the airwaves.

Al, I wish that he'd hurry up as well. At least we know that talks are going on and that an announcement is scheduled to be made fairly soon - so we're headed in the right direction.

Rumor has it that the absolute latest possible date is January...and that's just another three months. But that NYPost article hinted that we may know by the end of September. He'll probably get a lot of media attention at either date.

Ah, predictions...

College Girl,

They say Imus was the victim of a slow news day. I don't buy that but that is the Media's story and they are sticking to it. Will Imus come back in a slow news cycle or will he pop back up when things are getting busy in the news again...Timing it is a tricky thing.

There was a comment on the Imus Fan Yahoo Group if you put Imus Ranch, in the google engine something like 85,000 hits come back, I am going to check that out. If true that means Imus is still a popular subject. Not like Ellie Dylan, who I am still trying to follow up on.

In the meantime if you have insomnia, I hear Boomer is the cure GRIN.

College Girl,

No it wasn't 85,000 it was 193,000

Laree,

I actually think that about 80% of it was because a "slow news week." Yes, some of the people involved obviously had axes to grind, and they played a key part. But like a friend of mine said, "If Seung-Hui Cho had shot off his gun a week earlier, then Imus would still have a job."

Glad to see that the Ranch is popular.

NY Daily News writes that McCord has left WFAN?

Awesome news, if true...

Al said...

...a slow news week and the ever increasing number of tattletales who are out there monitoring every little thing they can possibly monitor...

Tattletales who monitor everything you say = NOT COOL.

I did see that about McCord leaving the 'FAN, which is awesome to read. Good to finally have it official. My only question is why the webmasters still have his bio up on the web page.
