Listener Comments and Reviews
WHY??? CBS over ESPN?
I was very confused this morning; did I miss the announcements forcasting the change?
Oh boy I am distressed.

Why the switch to CBS sports? I for one am very upset about this move. The shows and personalities on CBS are not even close to the quality of the ESPN crew. I will have to go back to another station as I cannot listen to these boring shows. please reconsider and go back to ESPN. Thank you.

The decision to switch to CBS sports was a terrible one, Jim Rome is one of the worst sports radio personalities ever. Thanks for the notification, I will not listen ever again, thanks for ruining my morning rituals for the past 15 years

i was very saddened by the decision to drop ESPN. "Mike & Mike" have shared my morning commute for years, and I was extremely surprised to learn than 1240 dropped ESPN without any notice to your listeners. I tried the new show and format this morning. Unfortunately, it is not listenable!
the commentators lack the skills and professionalism articualted by Mike & Mike / ESPN Radio. In fact your guest commentator(7:30am) said the word, "umm" every 8 seconds!

thanks for ruining my morning routine by taking away Mike and Mike and all the other ESPN shows. very unprofessional on your part to give no warning to your listeners. i for one won't be listening in the future.

Great news for all "Mike & Mike"/ESPN fans in Berks County Pa.!
We can still listen to our friends Mike & Mike at 97.5 FM in the morning. It was grwat to hear their voices again!
They are clearly superior to anything on the air waves at that hour!

Broadcasting public service spots is fine, but after months and months of the same spots, some two or three times in an hour, I am switching back to ESPN. Early this morning I heard the same spot three times in forty minutes (about strokes followed by one about stray cats, etc.). It takes away the regular programming.
