I'm sorry, because it seems like a lot of people like Cohen, but I say GOOD RIDDANCE.

I've never disliked someone I usually agree with more. I probably agree with Cohen on 90% of the issues and I still thought he had no ability to express a logical point of view in a coherent manner.

But in truth, most of the time his air time was filled with repetitious nothingness. A typical Kevin Cohen monologue would go something like this;

"The important thing to realize about this issue is how important it is to reasonably reflect on this issue and consider its importance". blaaa blaa blaa.

But then, every now and then, he would form an iron-clad opinion about some random thing and argue for it rudely and illogically.

It seemed to me that his air time was divided between almost "background noise" nothingness or unwavering argument.

I rarely, if ever heard, him actually discuss something from a defined point of view while also debating intelligently. He either took no stand at all or argued for his opinion like a 6 year old.

For years I've been changing the dial at 3pm sharp to escape Cohen. Now I can finally keep my dial at WVOC.

When Kevin started the political show, it seemed he was taking a thoughtful and considered approach to his daily topics. But somewhere along the way his tone took a turn and he started with the sensationalism, ala Rush and Glenn Beck. At that point I stopped listening. I enjoyed him engaging in honest conversation about the issues of the day, because he came across like he was truly involved. Once he went off the deep end though - presumably just for ratings - he became just another loudmouth blowhard I don't patience for.

Where I most enjoyed him was talking sports way back when - before he started with the politics. I think he was very good at that and could talk sports intelligently but not over the heads of the audience. It seemed he connected with his sports talk audience more than his political audience. I'd like to see if he could return to that genre, maybe on 107.5

The excuse, as I understand it, is that Columbia needs an afternoon show that doesn't just have talk and local politicians on it.
Now, thanks to Clear Channel, 100.1 has Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum on from 3 to 6 pm, and a good, solid, Columbia icon is out looking for work.
Hopefully when revenue dries up for that time slot, a positive decision will be made.
Personally, I've switched back to the static AM radio has to offer on WIS AM and Sean Hannity.

He was obviously providing steroids to Armstrong while having simultaneous intimate relations with Mark Sanford, Nikki Haley, John Edwards, and Manti Te'o (virtually).

I like ol' mad dog Kev. Or at least I enjoyed his sports talk radio gig before he moved into political talk radio. There, I found him and his show exceedingly low brow and painfully, painfully boring.

Hopefully, he finds work in the area.

Yeah, AST was a blast while it lasted.
