It seems no matter what the topic that somehow, someway, someone will eventually insert a comment about Mike "The Hurricane" Herren.
Now Mike Herren has been the host of WSAR's afternoon drive for a little less than a year now. He can be rough around the edges. He lacks polish and often seems to skip the research and go with his gut. Still, despite his flaws, I will admit that there are times when I have tuned in and have enjoyed his show.
Herren has his fans and he has his critics but it gets a bit sickening for a vocal minority to constantly insert him into every discussion. Really sickening.
Here is the latest example from a comment on Fall River-tastic:
BAD NEWS FOR BLOGGERS..HURRICANES ratings are in and his show is off the charts..now what are you going to say????
What am I going to say?
Show me some proof. Back up the statement. Let's see the Arbitron report. Here's my email: firstname.lastname@example.org send me a copy!
Give me the data. I won't reveal the numbers, I know that would be against the law. But if the data shows that his ratings are better than Keri's and I can back that up. I'll state it here. If he is number one in the Providence/Fall River market I'll be glad to say it.
I have nothing personally against Mike Herren. This guy has taken a lot of knocks some deserved and some uncalled for. If his show is doing that well in the ratings congratulations to him. But, show me the proof and I'll let his naysayers take notice.
Otherwise let's stop talking about Mike Herren unless it is related to the post.
