Ira versus Bill

I find it interesting that the 3-6p time slot in Reno now finds two local hosts competing. 99.1 FM Talk features KOH-alumnus Ira Hansen against KOH‘s Bill Manders. Some of you may remember that Ira was fired from KOH after the Atlantis threatened to pull advertising because of comments he made during his show.

With KKFT seemingly on the rise I’m anxious to see if KOH continues to decline. I have to believe that having Ira back on the air will give them a significant boost. I was a big fan of Ira when he was on KOH, so I’m excited to see him sign-up with KKFT.

I’m excited to see this kind of head-to-head match-up and I have to give credit to Jerry Evans for making it happen. I think I’m going to give equal time to both Bill and Ira so that I can provide some type of educated analysis at some point in the future. As I’ve indicated before, I don’t listen to Manders’ show regularly, but this is more out of disdain for KOH than anything related to Manders. It’s probably time to give him a fair shake…
