    What no Jay Mcfarland??

    1. John says:

      He took a job in Utah to be close to his ailing mom

    2. Justme says:

      Bill. Have you not been paying attention?
      God Speed Jay. Blessings on you and your family.
      You will be missed.

    3. Avis says:

      I heard he left to move to Utah:(

  2. Patrick Duncan says:

    Where is Jay going?

    1. Patrick Duncan says:

      Utah,…I hope he and his family the best possible scenario

  3. Button says:

    I hope that KRLD will continue this News “all day” format. I will definitely listen. Talk radio is fine but the News is better. Thank you for the change.

  4. Julie Fisk says:

    Best Wishes Jay! We’re sending prayers your way.

  5. Glen says:

    I listened to your show yesterday and wanted to call in but couldn’t at the time. My wife and I quit our jobs in Atlanta to move back to TX to take care of my mother, who had just had a heart attack. We thought it would be a 5 to 6 month gig – That was over 6 years ago. She is now 91 – we have saved her a couple of times. I have not had any income for those 6 years, and it is a struggle to pay insurance, etc, but it’s a something far too few people do to take care of their elders. I take her and 3 of her “Blue Haired” friends out every Thursday for a Blue Plate special at local restaurants. Good Luck with the new Job! Utah is a great place! (Wish I had an HD radio in the car and at home for my mom to listen to – she listens all day long through some wireless headphones I have hooked up for her.)

  6. Tom C says:

    If a genie had given me three wishes, this programming and lineup change would have surpassed anything I could wish. Ernie and Mike are awesome together and they go way back. I’ve missed Scott B during the day. More news! WOW!! This is great!!

  7. Mike says:

    I like the news all day and am happy to see it coming back.

  8. Jack Kelly says:

    Charley Jones is the best talk show host in the world.

  9. Debbie says:

    What time will “The Other Side of the News” be on? I missed it at 6:40 this morning!

  10. ann says:

    Thanks for putting Ernie and Mike back together. Now just add Roger, and you’ve got gold.

  11. Madison says:

    While I will miss Jay, I am very pleased that you’re going back to all news. KRLD continues to be the first station I tune to during the day for news updates–all day long. I am enjoying hearing Ernie with Mike in the morning. Good choice!

  12. Honey says:

    Now if they would just get rid of those terrible weekend money talk shows, this station would be complete

  13. E. SITTON says:

    Best of luck to Jay in Utah

  14. Thorpe says:

    More news. Great move — bravo! Appreciate focus on what’s happening, not telling me what to think or what the talking heads are saying. Thanks for the changes!

  15. Warren says:

    Thank you KRLD. I am so tired of all the talk, talk, talk, stations int the DFW area. This is a welcome format for this area. It would be great if this format was 7 days a week.

    Good Luck to Jay.

    Mitch Carr:
    So glad to get to have you on the air at a decent hour!!! Looking forward to the new time slot & listening to you again. I was on the trip to Scotland with you last year! Hope all is well.

  17. b says:

    you should have never seperated the 2 guys. they were good together. They had their differnce of veiws but that made the show interesting. I have listened everyday for 7 years…. How ever if he needs to go for family reasons. God bless for him, But with modern technology he could have operated remotely. My prayers are with your family Jay.

  18. Eric says:

    I grew up in Chicago listening to WBBM Newsradio 78 (now they say 780) and love the all news format. I’m very happy to return to DFW from vacationing in Chicago to find out that KRLD has gone back to all news all day! I hope it stays for a long time this time – thanks a lot !!

  19. Mary says:

    While I’ll greatly miss Jay and wish him/family all the best, waht I’ll miss most is what had already gone away – the Ernie & Jay show, especially with their Flip-Off. Such great memories and laughs for a bad day!
    I enjoy the news/weather/traffic, but it gets old during the slow periods (non-rush hour, for example); I think a talk format or similar would be accepted at those times – SOMEthing that would appease both sides. Although, from the comments posted so far, it looks like pro-all news; don’t know about call-in votes, however. Go with what works at this point; I’ll still listen, just not every time I’m in the car now.
    Cheers, Ernie – I never knew you without Jay, but I like your style, too!

  20. Bill Cherry says:

    I have spent a half-century in radio-tv, although primarily as an avocation. Ernie Brown is one of the most talented broadcasters I have ever encountered. I am delighted KRLD showed the good judgment to retain him.

  21. Eugene says:

    Congratulations and good luck! I’m in Austin and so I only get a faint signal on 1080, but I like the idea of having the news when you want it. Plus, I’m from the East Coast and still miss the news formats of WCBS and KYW, and from what I’ve heard, the pacing at KRLD is at least as good as those legends. Now if only 590 or 1200 would switch down here….

  22. Sara says:

    I, for one, complained to KRLD about Jay becoming a “Mark Davis wannabe” without the stuff to back him up. I left WBAP when Mark got too ‘pontificating’, and then went back to him after Jay started his show. I also wondered why KRLD lost the cool stuff Ernie used to do, like “truth or crap?”. Ernie always seems so ‘balanced’ in the crazy radio world. BEST to you, Ernie, and may the station allow you some creative license in your new venture! Please don’t get burned out on the early morning gig!

  23. IMary Seabol says:

    I have a question. Is it possible to give Chuck Scheckner not sure of the spelling of his name, and I apologize if I have it wrong) some elocution lessons? He has great enthusiam, but his speech pattern slurs words, making me work to understand what he’s trying to say most of the time. Most of your speaks pronounce each syllable, but he’s the standout. Thanks!

  24. Barry says:

    As a former radio news director, I’m really happy that KRLD has recommitted itself to an all-news format for most of the day.

    A metropolitan areas as large as DFW must have a reliable, credible source for immediate news and information, without its broadcasters having political/religious/sociological opinions that slant the news.

    And that’s what KRLD is doing.

    Thanks very much.

    And with that said, I must add there’s always an exception to the rule. I really do miss Ernie and Jay’s midday show. It was really entertaining.
