    Most everything on the FAN is not worth listening to. Bunch of hack jobs.

    I didn't know that about brokered time.

    Yea, you had the #1 rated Sunday show on NST at one time til, well,

    Bob Haynie will never be a fixture because his voice is the worst sounding thing on the planet. I listen to 105.7 occasionally but if Bob Haynie is on I instantly turn it off, I don't care if he's the smartest man on the planet, he needs a larynx transplant.

    Ok, Zinno is not a great radio personality.

    But seriously, he needs to be called names, have his resume inaccurately characterized and mocked?

    He's a stand up guy and a Major in the Army. At least that should garner a more level headed criticism?

    Shameful.

    It was announced in June of 2012 that CBS Sports Radio would launch in 2013, I wonder if they will get any national shows, or also can the Sat and Sun morning non sports shows. http://content.usatoday.com/communit...adio-network/1

    Nobody here mocked his military service. And the cheerleader thing easy to poke fun at.

    I didn't call him names either. I just said he was terrible on the air.

    Throwing him in the 9 PM time slot is tantamount to putting him in the basement with his red stapler. He's one cut from being released altogether. Which means a lot of people agree with my assessment.

    Wasn't referring to your post.

    Yes, putting him at 9 is a death blow to his radio career. I wasn't a fan of his by any stretch anyway.

    Baltimore sports radio has been putrid for years now. Not sure why better talent can't be found and kept here. It's like it's a disease.

    "Zinno" doesn't use his real name.
    He was a male cheerleader.
    He's a cheerleader coach.
    He is an awful and unlikeable radio personality.
    That is pretty damn accurate.

    There are plenty of people who have or had provided service to this country, they, no so more than him, don't necessarily deserve to be on the radio attempting to have a legitimate take on sports.

    Works for me: Long & Cerrato are gasbags, but somehow personally preferable to Haynie & Zinno (both of whose vocal inflections grate on me), All for Scott & Jeremy especially in that order. Haynie does a nice job, though, on the players' shows (e.g Cary Williams).

    Such a visceral reaction to someone who you don't even know simply because he's not your ideal radio personality.

    Says a lot about you more so than Zinno.

    And I hate to break it to you, but 75% of radio personalities use some sort of pseudonym.

    Decaf. Seriously.

    I like Haynie.. bummer...

    I actually enjoy 105.7 because they talk local sports. I have Sirius if I want to check out national scene.

    Actually my "opinion" and others manifests from "Zinno's" on air personality. And last time I checked people don' t need to meet on air personalities to have a take on them. And most people in the Baltimore sports talk market don't feel the need to use psuedo names

    Cant stand Zinno. Just don't like the guy.

    Haynie is great IMO, his voice is just fine IMO.

    I kinda get the feeling that Haynie is not the kind of corporate kiss ass that Zinno, Garceau etc are when it comes down to it, that type of guy tends to be left out in the cold in that kind of corporate radio environment. (thats not a slam btw a certain amount of that is smart and necessary)

    So what has he said / done on air that warrants such an emotional, negative response?

    Short of mocking your family on air, killing your dog or keying your car, I cannot imagine he's done anything that warrant such scorn from a reasonable person.

    You'd be surprised.

    I know I am in the minority, but I really like the Vinnie and Rob show. I also enjoy Bob Haynie, but I don't like him paired with Mark Zinno. Glen Younes gets on my nerves and probably that is the reason Zinno is filling his slot. Scott Garceau is fine, but when he is paired with Jeremy Conn he is forced to act like a parent of a small child and that is not his style. He needs a much more mature partner like Bob Haynie.

    Another person who is a fill in who I always liked on WNST was Terry Ford. It seems like he has been black listed because I only hear him on weekends or when everyone else is out sick. I would love for him to come back full time on a station. I guess we are stuck with Steve Davis and Ed Norris.
