Both valid points. Based on what I've read, I wouldn't be shocked if the Admirals moved and that was the end of minor-league hockey in Hampton Roads (and the rest of Virginia for that matter). And while people like going to Tides games, it's almost like a backdrop for their night out and not something that, outside of Orioles fanatics, will result in sports bar discussions about players and personnel moves. Obviously they're both local teams and should be represented on a local sports-talk show, but I'm guessing there won't be a lot of interest in either, unless one of them goes on a hot streak or an A-list player does a rehab stint.

I don't follow hockey at all so I don't know the dynamics of the minor leagues. However, minor league baseball is a weird sport because the MiL managers and coaches are there for development and its doesn't matter if they win or lose the games. So its hard to get people fired up about a team where winning really isn't the primary objective of the team.

I know it's a joke, but have you ever listened to the in stadium signal during games? The stuff that whole crew does during commercials is way more entertaining than Cattles' show.

We should have signed Tebow

But does he even know how to skate?

What is the in stadium signal, and how do you listen to it. Sorry if I am the only fool who has never heard of this.

Everything just said is why people here (maybe the majority of people here) would turn and run from an all-local show. Cattles tried to go the other way, but nobody likes that either because it was the same national show they'd heard and seen all day...only with less than half the resources and experience. It's a tough balancing act, this market is so diverse. It's impossible to please everybody, you have to pick and choose.

...Also, interviews with the opposing coaches have been part of every pre-game broadcast in basketball and football.

I have no way of knowing this, but I suspect that they were willing to allow Cattles to go mostly major sports with his show was to give people who liked listening to national shows but could never get on the air. A local version of a national show allows Dave from Chesapeake and Pete from Poquoson a chance to ask someone their Redskins or Alabama question.

Richmond seems to have a lot more success with their local sports-talk shows, but it's also a far more stable market; Tidewater is always going to have a large transient population because of the military, and they're probably not going to develop deep ties to local sports in the time that they're here.

I think 94.5 fm, small radio signal designed to be picked up only in and around the stadium so you can listen to the radio call during the game. But because it's a separate feed there are no commercials, they just stay on. The stuff that happens during the commercial breaks is down right entertaining.
