Carroll Kicks Ass

March 21, 2011 @ 08:33

Nice to see that good guy Bill Carroll is kickin' some major league ass in Los Angeles at KFI, which just happens to be the number one talk radio station in America.

Since joining KFI about a year ago, Carroll has had the length of his show extended and he's been a fill in for veteran LA morning man Bill Handel.

I've always been a big supporter of Carroll's, not only because he's great at what he does, but I've always liked his attitude and it was highlighted in a recent interview he did with

This is the part that really sticks out for me, and is something all Program Directors, not just talk Program Directors should think about.

What are the differences between Toronto Talk Radio and Los Angeles Talk Radio? "In Canada I probably spent most of my days meeting with program directors telling me that I've got to pull back. Here, I was told I had to push forward. It has taken much of the year to really realize what's actually on my mind and not feel like I will spend four hours a week in meetings."

On the whole pushing forward thing...perhaps that's Toronto more than Canada.

I doubt Dave Rutherford of QR77 is held back by his masters at Corus. Perhaps it's that people of the "left wing" are simply more sensitive to caustic comments than those on the right wing?

Good for Billy, miss him here to listen to. Shows he isn't just a Canadian one trick Pony, can adapt to the local market as he is a quick study for sure. Some may not like his style but you have to admire his skills for sure.
Would catch him occasionally with John Tory in the afternoon when it was at 5.30 driving home, but 6.30 is just a crap time.

This is being discussed on the SOWNY website also

First time I've been called a leftie.
