Saga Broadcasting is not what they appear to be. The GM and Operations Manager think they are it and everyone else is second best. Saga came into Ithaca and took over the airwaves and there hasn't been a decent DJ in Ithaca since. Where do they get these guys with no personality. They're horrible. They forced their number one DJ for 13 years out. Tried to do everything they could to get him to quit and finally succeeded. Ithaca radio hasn't been the same since. Why would you cut off your nose to spite your face? Don't trust them they lie through their teeth.
First off radiolover, you apparently don't have a clue about what your saying. Saga Communications and the management at Saga are some of the finest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with, not to mention the rest of the staff. These are some of the hardest working true radio people I have ever seen. I've worked in several markets from Florida to New York and seen the kind of people you are talking about...Saga people are nothing like you described and neither is Saga Communications as a whole. Find a life dude, your lameness is pissing me off!!
I will once again point out that I100 is a CORTLAND, NY radio station. It is licensed to CORTLAND! It would be nice if its marketing hype reflected that fact. Its to bad the FCC allows stations now to put their stick in a community only to be ignored. What good does it do Cortland County to have Saga studios in Ithaca? What good does it do Cortland to have our AM dumped onto a useless religious broadcaster? Consolidation and chucking 60 years or rules out the window has led to the garbage you hear on the radio today. Saga, PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR CITY OF LICENSE!
