I've been a follower of News/Talk radio in this area since it's inception......For those who may not know, Curtis Wright got his start on 980 WAAV in the 90's. WAAV's then Owner/GM, Donn Ansell, allowed Wright to sit-in for local News/Talk Hosts while they were on vacations, etc. Almost every local show on The Big Talker has roots on 980 WAAV. Even Paul Knight, the current GM of The Big Talker was WAAV's Chief Engineer for many years. With a incredible background at CBS Television, Ansell knew how to create great programming and developed a formidable show line-up, balanced programming and a huge following on 980 WAAV, He recognized potential talent and offered sound advice and guidance. Perhaps if Wright had received better direction about the importance of creating a forum all viewpoints, both conservative and liberal, he could have weathered the current storm brewing at The Big Talker. Whether you agreed or disagreed with Curtis Wright's viewpoints or practices on his show, he definitely created another local forum for the conservative viewpoint. You may want to keep your ears atuned to the possibility of Wright returning to 980 WAAV, the heritage News/Talk Station in this area and the one who has made a long and rich investment in this community. WAAV has always been and will be a pioneer in bringing new things to the airwaves... was one of the first 50 Stations in the Country to sign-on The Rush Limbaugh Show and one of the first in the area to broadcast sports....Nascar, the Seahawks and other sports teams. My loyalties are to 980 and I'm curious to see if Curtis Wright might come full circle and return there. Could prove to be very interesting!! If he returns to 980.... I might even listen if he tones down the negativity that is already so prominent on the national programs. He's no Rush Limbaugh. He needs to remember to educate, entertain and inform.....not just shock!
