16. they are dooming themselves
I became a subscriber because of Sam, I love the Majority Report, they had great guest, so they canceled that and put him on mornings, now they are canning him.
They dumped our beloved Mike Malloy, I am real disgusted with them.

I'm not going to be a listener anymore once Sam is gone. :puke:
