Greg Freyermuth is now using the label "talkback radio" on his show. If you've been following the news at El Paso Media Group you'd know that they just launched a new radio station 920 Am KQBU and are calling it "Talkback Radio." I'm in that line up along with Lisa D, the Strelz and Sito Negron.
Freyermuth has had zero ratings. In fact he took a time slot with ratings and then made them disappear. Strelz was the only guy getting ratings on that station and they let him go. Now, Strelz and I are back on the air on a different station and we are sure to start heating up the Arbitron ratings - Freyermuth can smell his death looming.
It's not that I disagree with Freyermuth's political views. He's just a terrible on air personality. He repeats himself constantly and over explains simple concepts like he's trying to sell you something (his formal training kicking in). He doesn't have what it takes to talk on the radio and keep listeners. He would make an okay caller at best.
The best part is that he hates the Strelz and accuses him of being a self-promoting, self-aggrandizing ego maniac who shakes down sponsors for free stuff. Guess what - Greg Freyermuth is exactly that, only a republican. Freyermuth complains that Strelz talks too much about his personal life - guess what, so does Freyermuth. Pot calling the kettle black.
Since their station over at 1150 is falling apart around them because Freyermuth couldn't sell advertising, they are scared to death that we will be the nails in their coffin.
So why is Freyermuth saying "talkback radio?" Because he wants to confuse listeners when they go to fill out the Arbitron ratings books. He can't beat me. He can't beat us with a better show, so he has to resort to trickery. It won't work. He's a coward and doesn't know when his time is up. It's up.
I'm flat out a better host than he his and Strelzin has already proven he can beat him. This guy is going to be looking for a new job soon enough. If he's lucky we'll let him ride around on a bicycle filling up the magazine stands in various buildings with the new issues of "ElPaso Magazine."
He can play his little petty games, but it's futile in the end. I'm going to wax him. He'll be babbling to squirrels in the park by year's end.
