Last Call for Happy Hour - Kenny's Show Hits the Road


Oh the vagaries of post-Salem sports talk radio in Cleveland. According to a report on Cleveland.com, WKNR personality Kenny Roda is out as the station's longtime afternoon drive sports talker. And his surprising replacement...

Sports radio stalwart Mark "Munch" Bishop is bolting Clear Channel Communications - and his gigs as sports director on WMJI and WMMS - for a job at sports-talk station WKNR. The voice of sports on WMMS and WMJI's popular Lanigan & Malone morning show is set to take over the afternoon-drive shift, 3-6 p.m., on WKNR.

Now, we were never the biggest fans of the Pittsburgh native's style, but ironically, his show was THE Cleveland sports talk show that had the pulse of the Cleveland fan. He didn't necessarily have the most entertaining afternoon all sports talk show in town, or the worst. Actually, he had the only one - and for many years. Which is the point. The Cleveland sports scene certainly needed and deserved a fresh voice. Roda and the recently reassigned Greg Brinda had the monopoly on the local airways for far too long, with no major ratings jump since Art Modell gave Clevelanders a reason to listen.

As for Munch, he's certainly capable of injecting some new life into WKNR. Anyone familiar with his Buckeye gameday shows on WTVN in Columbus certainly know what's he's capable of. He's a bare bones type of sports talker, who knows the players and coaches inside and out. The guy also might be able to roll off every high school mascot in the state of Ohio, which is actually kind of creepy, but different. And given the recent history of the same Tim Couch/Akili Smith-type sports talk in this town, different is good.

Many "insiders" at WKNR have already suggested to CursedCleveland.com that Roda will now anchor the post-game show, where his candor and "hotty" talk will be far better received (And maybe he won't stay so tight lipped about his son Cameron's amateur sports career, which many listeners have been clamoring to hear).

You can't be a Steelers fan AND an Indians fan. Pirates or nothing dirtbag. So long Kenny.

Never understood all the hate for Roda. "Dirtbag"? Stay classy. Guy has been around for years, and while he may not be the most entertaining of hosts, who out there has been? He has credibility, and has tamed down his lame "hottie" talk quite a bit.

Brinda on the other hand.....

I thought calling a Steeler fan a dirtbag was a compliment.

yeah, i really don't understand kenny's obsession with "hotties", i mean i HAVE SEEN KENNY and he has NO shot with any chick that rates over 5. he is scary looking, like reghi. also kenny i don't care how many free tickets you get from merck's....

one final thing, a guy the other day told me that kenny was at a local AAU(cameron's of course) game yelling at the official from the stands and acting like an idiot.... i can see that happening from the way he talks on air...

war ---- sbt..... you rock.

KNR is making some strong moves and should be applauded. The guys still have to produce. Reghi over Bob K. on the postgame show is like going from having Smush Parker as your No. 1 option to having LeBron James...with Reghi being BronBron. I think it would be cool if Reghi starts taking potshots at McClouded.

I'm not sorry to see Roda on the WKNR graveyard shift. His act just got stale to be honest.

kenny roda was the only one who actually asked the wuestions in the locker rooms, he wasnt a pussy like all the other half ass reporters who think they're shit in cleveland. he actually talks about the things he beleives in instead of sucking up to any organization in cleveland. just cause he was born in pittsburgh doesn't mean he is some hardcore steelers fan, has he ever cheered for the steelers on the radio no never so all you assholes who talk shit should shut up cause while you little fucks sit on your fat asses eating potato chips watching softcore porn, kenny roda is out doing his job as best as he can getting the best answers he can because thats what all the people want to here. fuck you all
