"It's unfortunate that some choose to use this as a forum for taking shots at others"
Welcome to radio boards where broadcasters suddenly become courageous under pseudonyms!
Love him or hate him - and I'm actually split on this topic, at least give Strombo a few weeks to find his footing in a completely new - and extremely large market.
Further, if you wanna assail him and his newfound adventure, at least have the stones to step up, identify yourself and let your relative experience stand in comparison.
None of us are on CNN''s radar!
Give him a friggin' break!!

Any former radio-guy who can transfer to TV successfully (even the CBC) with all his tics & fleas glaringly intact, has my congratulations. George might be able to make the transition if his producers grab some better "gets". Martin Short may be a Canadian, national treasure, but in the States, he's another fine, aging comedian. Keeanu builds motorcycles? Big freakin' whoop. Yes, George might pull it off - if he has someone to talk to who is current and of interest. It is "showbiz" after all.

LOL was actually talking about the cheap shot at hagopian, not Strombo. As far as I'm concerned he's fair game. He's getting paid for it, so the criticism is valid.

Flame-Wars here are pretty tame skirmishes compared to what I've seen and read on other boards. Despite our past radio career behaviors, we're actually somewhat civilized.

Well said! The conspiracy theorists and know-it-alls elsewhere are real gems.

Amazing to see the peace that has descended on the site that recently quoted a Marg Simpson imitator as proof positive that Chemtrails are real. No one can argue with Marg, even a fake Marg. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... 0uLpPh08-U

George was duped. He has been a CIA plant for years. (I said it first. Here.)

Pave .... you traitorous weasel. Disclosing information like that could get a great many people killed.

I know you struggle with the duplicity aspect, but keep 'yer trap shut when it comes to international intrigue will ya?

A few days in the news and an entry on wikileaks just isn't worth a lifetime of shame.

I'm well aware that GS will comfortably take a left of centre position in guest interviews and commentary, and I've suspected him of being at least a double agent, if not a triple .....

Guys! That wasn't me! Somebody hacked my RadioWest account.
Aw, screw it. I'm going back to Hong Kong.
No! I meant Tilsonburg. Yeah, that's it.
