Default Mark Maluisis and the worst 15 minutes of radio ever

So I woke up in the middle of the 4 o'clock 20/20, just missing the Mets score. So I figured I wd listen for a few minutes before going back to sleep, as surely MM wd lead w/the Yanks/Mets, right? Wrong! He started the our by telling Harris Allen how his brother-in-law stunk up his bathroom taking a dump a few nights ago. He then sequed into reminiscences of his own nasty bathroom experiences (I wont get into the gruesome details but most involved White Castle) and finished with an update of his and his wife's house hunting efforts (actually a welcome reprieve given topics 1 and 2). 15 minutes and not one mention of sports. I know there are some hosts out there who are not listenener favorites (Evan, Tony), but at least they have a degree of professionalism. This wasnt even worthy of Carton. Amateur hour at its best!

You know, I heard that bit as well. Awful radio, no doubt.
MM is always saying " What's on your mind ?" Now we know what's on his.
Scat talk radio !

WFAN's roster of nothing but "street guys" is getting bad. That is, guys like US, with really NO professional experience as a sports pundit or journalist....just fans "pulled off the street."

A street guy like Sommers is great. When its Sommers. Who is a decent man and has talent. But you need ONE of these types and when your ENTIRE roster is nothing but "street guys" and bad ones at that, its not good. The overall quality of the conversations on WFAN is very much lacking these days. When your roster is dominated by spoiled 24 year olds, hysterical, reactionay fans like Joe, and guys pulled from behind the glass and are doing toilet humor, its a bad job by Chernoff.

You're joking ... right? Russ could slide into any slot in WFAN's lineup and be a big improvement. I would like to see him join Mike since it is pretty obvious that Big Mike needs a partner to return to his peak form. Russ could be that partner.

I used to be critical of Russ' attitude toward callers but now cut him a lot more slack after his great work with the Giants pre-game show last season. The only reason that Russ isn't a fixture in the FAN's lineup is budgetary. At some point in the near future, we can only hope for a meeting of the minds between WFAN management and Russ' agent.

Angry Tony Paige sux

I'd rather listen to mark breakdown algebra equations then listen to Tony BORING PAIGE. Can this guy be anymore boring?....i mean he literally puts me to sleep. He mentions his son Jaylen every 5 minuts and breaks down his sports career like if we give flying fudge. If that isn't bad enuff he talks about fights from the dinosaur age that nobody knows about. This guy needs to go asap. Mark, The Bull , or any other overnight host is 20 steps up from this guy. Is he an affirmative action hire?...cuz it sure seems that way.

Mark Malusis reminds me a lot of Francesca and sometimes he acts like him on air. He is very intelligent to me though, and he could probably beat Tony Paige in a quiz about the NFL. Even though Mark sometimes talks about unnecessary stufff, I would prefer to listen to him over Paige any day of the week.

Malusis and Adam the Bull (WTF?) are the worst.

Tony Paige is at least a nice guy.

Malusis is a jerk/ Francesa wanna be.

Chernoff hires his interns/ board ops. What an idiot.

I think Mark's pretty good myself. Now Sommers, Neer, or Lori could provide you a worse 15 minutes anytime you tune into them !

This guy is more arrogant than Francesa, at least Francesa has a number one show, I've never seen somebody with such low talent and high arrogance. He was one of the jerks saying that Cutler faked the injury, he must have pictures of Chernoff at a rest stop, can't think of any other reason he is on the air, oh, I forgot, Chernoff is an idiot, that's the reason.

My e mail to Marc and his response

Marc;

You really should do some research before you call people out for being soft. Chicago medical people would not let Cutler back in the game. A grade 2 MCL sprain is a tear in the MCL. You sounded like a idiot on the radio today. You are trashing the guy as soft because of his body language on the bench.

Come on Marc I thought you were better than that.

Matt

I wonder if Malusis' tough guy persona is just an act.

If it is that's pathetic - no one likes a phony. Be genuine on air.

BTW how does adam schein have a job on sirius/xm? Must have a great agent.

-----------------------------------------

I really loathe both Malusis and Schein- I actually went to high school with Schein. Just to answer your question before it comes, yes- that is obviously a totally fake voice. You can hear his normal voice at times on Loudmouths (when he forgets to get in character), which makes him so much more palatable, but then he catches himself and puts on his terrible broadcast voice.

Also, Malusis takes every self-righteous, sanctimonious, judgmental position of moral high ground possible, and can't keep his attitude stable from one issue to the next. One minute he's decrying A-Rod for not fake-crying well enough during his steroid admission (I believe the direct quote was "can I get a fake-tear, something??!!") the next he's criticizing Tiger Woods at his embarrassing press conference for "being fake" and "not acting normally." Because if you had to have a press conference in which you acknowledged a large amount of sexual indiscretion and scumbag behavior to an audience of hundreds of millions you'd be "acting normally" too. I can't wait until we find out that Malusis rapes kittens or steals from the Polish-Orthodox church or whatever terrible behavior he's involved in which his over aggressive and arrogant mien are clearly trying to protect. It was great when Tierney called him a "60 year old man" on Wheelhouse last week. So true.

Wow- now I feel better.

Malusis seems more relaxed and fun on The Wheelhouse - maybe his radio is just an act? Or BT just puts him in his place?

I'm not a particular fan of Marc. He runs the same kind of ship that Mike does...somebody either disagrees with him or proves him wrong, and he cuts them off and makes himself sound like an arrogant bozo. I hope he doesn't have that attitude in real life, people pwn you for that.

I think Marc listens to tank and basises his opinion on tanks opinion. Just listen to them both, Marc always has the same opinion it never fails. It's like watching a really bad imitation of tank.
