I can't stand how WAAV runs

I can't stand how WAAV runs 10 mins of commercials at the top of the hour for Curtis Wright and Tyler Cralle's shows, maybe if they change this they wouldn't get so slaughtered in the ratings.


It couldn't happen to a nicer group of people. Chad, Aimee and Joe are the best. Chad is intelligent, well read and entertaining and the guests are top-notch. I listen M-F from the moment I get up (7-7:30) until 10. Congrats and keep up the good work guys!

Congratulations, but not a

Congratulations, but not a suprise. Those of us that live too far from Wilmington have Al Gore's internet. Some are very loyal listners. Keep up the important work. There is still a lot of cleanup to be done in the Tombstone Territory.


You guys make a great team! I love to listen every morning! I find it informative as well as entertaing!

big talker became what waav was before curtis...but lost soul

Curtis might be abrasive and harsh and prone to grudges, some dating from 15 years in the "thick of it" fighting battles. He was and remains a principled conservative with history to share. Chad probably means well and is quickly adopting the childish, editorialized opinions typical of wway's sensationalism and lowest common denominator "reporting." Chads smarter than that but should do right not leftist gotcha attack journalism. The big talker has lost any credibility since joining with the Natty Enquirer of tv news, becoming the bulhborn of pickey via radio. Its a shame they put that business partnership ahead of informative, inteliigent and grown up content. Sad.

Congrats! Ever since Calvin

Congrats! Ever since Calvin was fired, the Morning Beat has become on top again.

How sweet it is!

Curtis Wright...#14

A BIG Congrats to Chad, Aimee, and Joe!
