I used to change the channel the minute this guy opened his mouth. Mostly because his voice annoyed the hell out of me. Then for one day I listened to an entire show, probably because it was all about the Chiefs.

I gotta say. I'm a fan. He is tuned in to the Chiefs and seems to have a good connection with Haley.

He's talking on a great subject today that has been discussed here at length. The difference between "The right" player and the most talented player.

Nick Wright is good because he won't talk about the Royals most of the year.

his voice is annoying, but I prefer him to the KK/810 infomercials / pointless talk etc.

I'm a fan of his show.

It's either him or KK.

Nick:

- Talks a lot of Chiefs
- Actually puts in the work and goes to watch practices. (unlike KK)
- Will talk Royals but not very much which is great for me.

KK:

- Royals. zzz
- Golf
- BBQ
- Racin Boys

Makes it pretty easy IMO.

I found it odd that he was just seriously mocking work colleague Bob Fescoe today. Basically calling him stupid and an idiot. They both work for 610

i pretty much change the station if either station is talking about the Royals. There's nothing to discuss about that team; they suck.

You can tell Nick Wright amps it up when football season rolls around and he gets to talk about the chiefs pretty much the whole show.

Compared to Keitzman's KSU commercial, Nick Wright is a breath of fresh air. I'd quit listening during that time period due to Keitzman's blatant homerism and outward hate for anything KU. If 610 were smart, they'd hire Petro away from 810 and watch the entire station collapse.

I don't listen anymore because I moved from KC, but I like Nick. 610 gets too heavy into KU during basketball season for me, but that's the market, so I get that.

It should be disallowed to talk about anything other from Late Night to March. Only KU, all the time.

I went to high school with Nick Wright. I remember him being a scrawny little fuck that was no good at any sport, and followed all the popular kids around like a lost puppy dog. And he was a wannabe white gangsta.

I still love his show, though.

Now that it's Wright up against Kietzman...I'll listen to Wright all day before I listen to KK drone on and on about his golf game

I went through the same process and realized that I liked him just before he moved to drive time.

I don't listen to Wright or Fescoe because they are the whiniest radio hosts I have ever heard. Everything they say sounds like the are whining.

Yeah.... I listened to Nick today for the first time. My thoughts:

Talks a lot about the Chiefs...which is good. Although there just wasn't much to talk about today so he hammered that point over and over again about the difference between the 2 inside linebackers in the 3-4 defense and why DJ is only considered weak-side by Haley

That stupid rant about Fescoe was just stupid.... and boring.... nothing worse than media attacking media... in the media. It all bores me, just talk about sports, not each other.

All in all, better than KK. I've had enough of BBQ and racin' boys... god it's a terrible show. Only so many times I can listen to that hick say "now that's a pretty neat deal, right there"... that and KK doesn't really seem to know a lot about sports... nor does he do any homework, it seems.

I thought him adding the "America F*ck Yeah" song behind Fescoe's rant complaining about taking a game to Europe was pretty funny. It did get old, which is one of Nick Wright's weaknesses. He doesn't know when to stop hammering home a certain point or idea causing the listener with ADD to become bored and disinterested after a while.

and if you guys didn't listen to him when he had the night show, or even when he was on 9-11, you missed a lot of great shows...and some really bad ones. but he's improved a great deal, and is probably, imo, the best we've got (which for some, might not be seen as a good thing).

Totally agree. It seems like most of the guys that really hate him only heard the early shows, where he was pretty bad and rough. But, he's really hit his stride lately. I'd rather listen to him than any other show in the area.

Listening to 810 during the day is just painful. Advertisement after advertisement... and then they advertise during the show, talk about barbeque, more food, beer, bbq again, maybe some sports, which is usually Royals, and then it all repeats. Ugh.

He has definitely improved a lot. It helps that Herm is gone, because Nick Wright defended Herm way too much. Shortly before Herm was fired, Nick Wright said over and over and over that the Chiefs needed to keep him.

When that shit started I immediately changed the station.

I have to admit, I like the bump music to start the show. Run this town.

I've liked Nick for a while. He doesnt spend too much talking about shit no one wants to hear.

But....Shan Shariff? Holy fuck the guy is stupid. He doesnt even talk sports. He talks about things that surround sports but not the sport itself. He spent a whole hr talking about how his parents never came to his HS tennis games like we could give two shits about that.

That's my biggest issue with KK. Half of his show is a commercial. Pizza places, sporting goods stores, ticket brokers... on and on.

Wright gets right to the sports, no bullshit.

I've often wondered if that will change when/if he ever starts beating KK in the ratings.

KcMizzou
08-10-2010, 10:13 PM
I still say St. John is good too. He talks about pop culture as much as sports, admittedly. But, he's the only Mizzou guy on KC radio, and he talks MMA and boxing here and there.

I find it amusing that they basically have turned into 980 and Don Fortune of 10-15 years ago.

810 wins the morning drive. Still.

I've tried to give 810 every chance. Like St. John a lot personality-wise, but it seems like their main focuses are Big 12 and miscellaneous sports I don't care about. I'm pretty much focused on Chiefs/NFL about 8-9 months out of the year. The rest I reserve for Royals. So even though I'm rooting for 810, they lose that battle.

Wright's biggest problem IMHO is that he'll get started on a point and go over and over and over it. If the horse wasn't dead when he started it certainly was after he beat it to death.

He's still miles better than KK.

He's still miles better than KK.Yeah, they all do it. The "talking point" of the day... whatever they think will create interest and discussion. Most people don't listen for the full 3 or 4 hours. If you do, I suppose it gets old really fast.

He'll even do that in a single segment. He'll say something then say it again, then again. Although to be fair almost everyone in radio does the same thing. Petro will get himself worked up about something and keep repeating it, loudly, until he runs out of steam.

Nick Wright annoys the piss out of me because he's generally talking about Nick Wright.

Sure, he'll talk Chiefs, but every single damn day he talks about himself - about how great he is, about how tuned in he is, about how he was the youngest this that or the other...

He's a pretentious douche.
