AM Sports Radio Stations

Has anybody ever done a study to find out how many minutes in an hour AM sports radio stations actually talk about sports?

I'd say less than 20 out of every 60 minutes are actually "sports talk." If they're not doing a commercial talking about buying jewelry, it's a divorce lawyer telling you how to get your ring back! Throw in a little porn music wile you wait for the host to get back from the pooper, and nearly 40 minutes have gone by. Add the "sports news update" and there's even less time the sports talk guys have talked sports!

No disrespect 610 and 810 station lurkers, y'all are awesome (ask yourself!), but it's just a question I've had for a while...

Sure. I definitely mix in more music during the off-season.

This may be tomorrow's experiment. I'm not tied to either of the to sports stations, and I even have KMBZ in there to listen to also. Hell, I even have the other one that sports ESPN yapping...

It was just a fun question to answer. I'm pretty sure that the period of time I drive in each day is indeed wrought with commercials (no surprise advertisers want a rush-hour crowd to hear their ads!), so it's just the price I pay for drive at pretty-much the same time each day.

Who knows, maybe I'll enjoy Christmas in February and try satellite radio! I'm sure there's a "Girls of the fax machine" station I can listen to there...

ya, I'm to the point where I can't listen to the commercials either. I keep some Phil Hendrie podcasts on hand for just such an occasion.

Back on the topic of actually talking sports. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz. I mean what is there to talk about right now? College basketball r or Royals couldn't put me to asleep faste. I like the NBA but around here nobody cares.

At this point I'm only partly listening for draft talk. Outside of that? Yeah bring on the light hearted talk about Cdot's date with Kelly Jones, etc..

It's no different from the vast majority of threads on here during the off-season.
This... Maybe I'm just menstraiting this same time every year. Maybe it's just College basketball (and being a Missouri resident)...

Welp, I'm a KU fan So that might be another reason I enjoy the discussion on 810.

I usually only listen to 810, mainly because the hosts are all local guys, that have deep rooting interest in local sports. Sure, they get off topic a lot, and spend way too much time talking about sports not many people care about, but I know they all have followed and rooted for the local teams.

610 seems full of fresh out of broadcast school guys, who feel the need to fill the show with topic segments, like, " Hey callers, call in and tell us your top five Super Bowl moments!" " Where does this latest one rank? Give us you're list of the three best Super Bowls!"
I just hate that kind of, killing time radio.

Come to Nashville. Up until recently most of the sports talk was dreadful. You think Bill Maas sucks, listen to Frank Wycheck for 5 min. and you'll want to drive nails into your ears.

That's AWESOME!!! I at least need a radio that has an Aux port or bluetooth to get to that level!
