    1. So disappointed in this station. First it was the older artists like Clint Black & Alan Jackson that got tossed, then the oldies show on Sunday mornings with Stu Fink, I suspected Hank was gone & now Lori & JW. Shame on you all. Count me out

    2. Thank you for introducing me to the Bobby Bones show. Now that JW and Lori are gone, I'm went over to the Bull.

    3. Yes. I don't know what hit me without JW and Lori. Also liked that Sunday morning old show and Steve Kelly. I find this hard to belive that all is gone. I loved that station until now!

    5. I have tried for two months to keep listening - I can't take the new format anymore. I too will leave 102.5 without Lori and JW. They were the best. I have an hour ride in the morning and now all I listen to is an irritating talk show. Get Lori and JW back, they were the best.

    6. I can't listen to 102.5. It used to be my go to station. The talk in the morning is unacceptable. Issues that should not be discussed when I am driving kids to school. I stream my music now. Wklb and GM should be ashamed of themselves and the changes they have made

    7. What the hell is this? Who are these people? I've tried to keep listening, but have to keep changing the station. JW and Lori are the best. Not listening any more!

    8. I cannot believe JW & Lori gone!!! I have tried to listen but hate the new format and Hanna's voice is like fingernails on a chalk board--I also miss the Sunday morning show--Try again as this change is a failure!!!

    9. You have ruined 102.5. JW and Lori were the best. I don't like the way country music has changed but I kept listening because of them. Also the Oldies on Sunday mornings was something I looked forward to every week. The guy you have on in the afternoon is an idiot. He only talks to girls when he takes phone call s. At least that's all he broadcasts. He must think he is a stud. Ugh. I no longer listen to your station. You have made terrible changes. Go back to the old format. Wklb won best station for a reason before the changes.. That should tell you something.

  2. I can't believe you got rid of JW &Lori. They're the reason I listened every day driving to work. What are you doing there? I've listened from the beginning. Not anymore.

    1. I agree won't listen anymore. I really liked JW and Lori and of course Steve Kelley.I already tuned into the Bull. They are better than your station

    2. The new morning show sucks. Talking about bringing up drama. I listened every morning just to laugh with JW and Lori. I can't and will not listen anymore as I left a Chanel that brought up this drama. Hey maybe the sister station that broke their window. See I listen. That's immiturity

  4. Can't believe they got rid of J.W. and Lori, They were the reason I listened to the station. Won't be listening anymore. It's a shame, the students on my bus are really going to miss them. J.W. and Lori were the reason they now like country music.

  5. it was a big mistake to let go jw and lori you are going to lose a lot of listeners and I will be one of them I will start to listen to another country station as far as i am concern wklb is dead to me

  6. Wow...so disappointing! I loved hearing them come on at 5:00am for my commute! They are the only morning hosts that never complain and are relevant to the rest of us early morning commuters. Back to the Bull and CAT Country. Goodbye WKLB!

  7. So sorry to hear of their departure...pretty sure this was a HUGE mistake on the part of WKLB!
    Will be rethinking my morning station.
    I wish JW and Lori all of the best!

  8. So sorry to hear of their departure...pretty sure this is a HUGE mistake on the part of WKLB. Will be searching for a new morning station I'm afraid.

  9. My husband and I have been tuning into WKLB every morning at 5 to listen to JW and Laurie and Hank. Always enjoyed listening to the news and weather as well as their banter. They're stories were fun. I feel like the distant Auntie to both JW's kids and Laurie's nieces, I feel like I've grown up with them! Thanks you guys, wish you the best, won't be listening anymore. Big mistake! What a bummer!

  11. Morning rides will never be the same, I feel like I have lost two good friends, they always started my day off with a smile. Wish the best for them both, and Hank! Will change my station in the morning now or back to streaming, music is just music, Radio Stations are personalities.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I agree with all of the above. Miss JW and Lori in the morning. Hank too! I have changed stations also. Wish them all the best! Mornings are not the same. ☹

  13. This is so sad. They gave their all and they get the boot. As you get older you get replaced.

  14. I have been a long time listener to your station thru the channel changes and some dos, but this has got to be your worst mistake. JW and Lori were the best and I enjoyed listening to them every morning, it took me awhile to figure out the move as I drive professionally but now I know and will be finding a new station.
    REALLY POOR MOVE!!

  17. I am in shock!!!! BIG MISTAKE!! I have been listening to them for so long I can't remember I time I didn't. I enjoyed listening to them while getting ready for work and the commute, they made me laugh. I too will not be listening to this station anymore, I will find another country station.

  18. Really disappointed in this station. Huge mistake! Finding a new station.

  19. :( I thought I was dreaming when I tuned in this morning. Will def. be tuning in else where, Hank, JW and Lori was the reason I listened, sorry "new guy" --- Huge mistake, huge.

    ReplyDelete
  20. this is awful- I'd rather listen over at the Bull to their morning show. Part of the reason New England loved JW and Lori was that they were from here and they new what mattered to us. Sorry guys losing a longtime listener.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Not happy about this either. The reason I didn't listen to the bull was because the morning show was pretaped OUT OF NASHVILLE. the DJ couldn't tell the difference between Watertown and Worcester. Now we have a transplant doing "how do I spell MA towns?" seriously?

  22. I have been listening to the JW & Lori on WKLB 102.5 for the last 15 years or more. They made my morning commute more than just bearable, they actually made it pleasant. They had me laughing all the way to work. So, I get in my car to go to work this morning only to hear another DJ. I thought maybe he was filling in for JW & Lori. Noooooo...... WKLB, in their infinite wisdom, chose to replace JW & Lori with some guy from San Antonio named Miles. So now it's Miles in the morning. When they brought in a new DJ for my evening commute several months ago, I stopped listening to them on my way home because all he did was talk to people who called in, which I hate. Now they go and do this to me (and many others I'm sure). Sorry WKLB, you have just lost this listener for life. I would much rather hear two funny DJs playing off each other than one boring DJ talking to listeners calling in. It's been a good 15 years but our relationship is over. I hope JW & Lori went somewhere else together and I can find them. I don't even care what kind of music it is, I will listen because of them.

    I agree..don't like Kevin Kennedy..so stopped listening in the afternoon. Really messed up getting rid of Steve! But the morning show was fantastic. JW and Lori really knew how to play off each other and make your mornings pleasurable. Can't bring in an outsider to Boston..spelling bee just showed how much of an outsider he is. Been a faithful listener for over 20 years. Met and became friends with Ginny Rogers when I went to Hawaii with the Train to End Stroke Marathon team in 2005. But it's Goodbye now!!!

  24. You want to gear it towards younger listeners what about your longtime listeners that don't want to hear all that young talk. You were nominated 2 years in a row with what you had. Why change things. Very disappointed....not listening anymore.

  25. This is probably the worst mistake so far. Ever since the Bull came to town you have been making changes that are hurting the station not improving ratings. You should have left it alone. JW and Lori where the best. You just pushed one more over to the Bull--

    ReplyDelete
  26. NO FREAKING WAY!! WHY do this when these two were the best duo ever!!!! They totally made my morning drive better. BAD MOVE....just saying..

    ReplyDelete
  27. I am shocked and will also be switching radio stations. The guy in the mornings now is awful

    ReplyDelete
  28. I guess I finally found a reason to start listening to the other country station. The stiff you had on this morning should go back to Texas where he might be worth listening to. They where the reason I tuned in every morning. Adios 102.5

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love Bobby Bones but whenever I was in range of WKLB I tuned into Lori and JW. I live in Western MA and I preferred KLB to all other country stations. Huge mistake.

  30. Well..I totally agree with everyone... huge mistake and I'll be finding a new distraction for my ride to work.

  31. I thought I had the wrong station. I listen every morning getting ready for work. NO more. I'd rather tune into my pandora station than listen to this guy from San Antonio. No thanks. Good bye wklb. It was nice while it lasted Huge mistake. HUGE!!

  33. I am so upset about losing JW & Lori in the morning. Seems like you just want to compete with Bobby Bones. I wasn't listening to the Bull bc I'm a loyal country 102.5 listener but you really made a mistake with this and will lose many of us now.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Was so sad to hear JW & Lori not on the air…. such an unhappy surprise this morning! Will miss them during my hour (plus), daily commute to work. Such a shame, they will be missed, and I will be looking for a new station to tune in to.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Really shocked and disappointed that JW and Lori are gone! Why?
    You should have paid them more to stay. They won awards and kept your listeners engaged!

  36. Wow! Thought I had the wrong station on yesterday morning!!! What a mistake...shame on you WKLB!

    I'm gone, gone, gone!

  37. I will also be looking for a new station to listen to every day. Totally shocked not to hear JW & Lori in the morning. Cannot believe the station would make such a brainless decision!

  38. Big big mistake. I'm going to listen to my IPod and not 102.5!!! Or the Bull sometimes. Bye bye WKLB.

  39. Couldn't agree more with everything that's been said. Goodbye

  40. I am totally SHOCKED when I tuned into 102.5 this AM.. what a complete bogus decision the EXECUTIVES made FIRING JW, Lori & Hank! I will no longer be a listener to this station and possibly the AFFILIATE stations you are associated with! I cannot stand the BULL either because of the Bobby Bones show which is pre-taped in TN and those BONEHEADS also have no idea what it is like to be a NEW ENGLANDER. JW, Lori & Hank DOWN TO EARTH PEOPLE. I totally did not care for your new DJ Miles. Bye-Bye - HUGE MISTAKE all around!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. You don't know what you lost-for one a great morning team that got all their listeners involved and then become 102.5 faithful listeners, secondly a listener that had this radio station on faithful. I will definitely find a new station that values good personalities. Hopefully I will find them doing their usual fantastic entertaining show at a station that values them.You definitely DO NOT deserve country station of the year!!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Can't believe that you let such a talented entertaining team go. You have not only lost a creative team but also a faithful listener. I really enjoyed my daily ride in listening to them and my afternoons and weekends listening to 102.5. Believe me this is no longer the case! I don't really know where you found that new AM DJ nor do I care. I will be finding a new station to be faithful too, as well as many of my colleagues. You certainly DO NOT deserve country station of the year!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I also can't believe it, they all made the station come alive. If I wanted to hear people be on the phone all the time I would call someone. Every day I have to play with my radio at work so I can listen to them, first you get rid of Steve and now the others. You had something that worked and now what! I liked that station because they played new music, now I listen to 98.9 not the same but... and by the way right now I'm listening to it and Keith is filling in for someone else. I liked the ones that were on much better. Younger is not always good!!!!

  44. HUGE MISTAKE!!! They were the best thing WKLB had !!! I won't be listening any more that's for sure !!

  45. HUGE Mistake, will no longer listen to this station, moving over to the BULL. JW and Lori were such a great pair to listen to in the morning, just the right amount of talk. Sorry but the new morning show is awful.

    ReplyDelete
  46. You replaced this great morning team with a woman who is so full of herself that she is bragging on the air about forcing a couple to buy her drinks on a plane because their crying baby annoyed her. Wow!! I am out of here, that was a HUGE mistake!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I agree huge mistake. Can't stand the sound of the woman's voice either. Their personalities just don't mesh like JW and Lori

  48. count me out as well..four radios tuned to a new station..alarm clock,car,house and office radios all changed from wklb..good luck jw and lori..you will be sorely missed

  49. If you were trying to compete with Bobby Bones WKLB it looks like you just threw in the towel. This new duo you have is horrible. Bye Bye WKLB. I really enjoyed JW and Lori. I can't remember a time I didn't listen to them. HUGE MISTAKE

    ReplyDelete
  50. First the afternoon guys are gone,now the morning crew,you may be trying to attract the younger audience but it is the older, loyal listeners that have been supporting your advertisers for years. Big mistake. Like a lot of others.... I am gone!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I am a younger listener... and i must say i am so sad to see them go!!! You have officially turned me over to Bobby Bones for my new morning show... you have lost many listeners because of this! i know all my friends wont listen! good bye WKLB!! sorry you are no longer bostons #1...

    ReplyDelete
  52. I tuned in this morning to find JW and Lori no longer broadcasting. No offense to the two people who took over the morning show, but it was horrible and sophomoric and quite frankly a bit obnoxious. Say goodbye to another loyal listener.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Not happy with the changes. unhappy that Steve Kelly left, although Kevin Kennedy is OK. Now Hank, Lori, and JW? The new morning show is HORRIBLE. Hardly any chemistry or interesting dialogue. Maybe WOKQ in Portsmouth/Dover can boost their signal to get closer to Boston.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Returning to work this morning after being home sick imagine my surprise when I had no JW and Lori!! First thought was I had the wrong station on, so after trying to find them, I came to the realization they were gone. Then after listening to an obnoxious female tell her story about telling a lady on her flight how she "had to pay for her drink because of her crying child" and thinking of how funny she was, I was completely tuned out. Did not enjoy listening to Miles either......I want JW and Lori back!!!!! Looks like I'll be switching morning ride stations, over to The Bull!!! Don't know who made this change, but their job should be in jeopardy~!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Why did you try to fix something that wasn't broke? Not only was it "not broke", but as far as I'm concerned, JW & Lori as well as Steve Kelly are the reasons you received the awards and accolades you received. I've tried listening to the new WKLB, but it's not for me. The enthusiasm seems fake and forced. I miss the camaraderie between JW and Lori, and it was so easy to identify with them. It's really just a shame, you took a great thing and really threw a wrench into it. Goodbye WKLB,and good luck cause, you're really going to need it. J. LeBlanc, a very sad, former WKLB fan.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Glad to hear the change !! JW was full of himself. Back when he was the afternoon DJ ( Yea I listened way back then) The other DJ's referred to him as junior weasel. Looking forwarded to keeping 102.5 tuned in.

    ReplyDelete
  57. 59 comments expressing sincere disappointment in the loss of JW and Lori in the morning and just one supporting their loss. Makes me wonder if any true and fair survey was conducted. Clearly these responses speak volumes. Time to tune in to a station that is more loyal to its loyal listeners.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I have been a loyal listener for years. JW and Lori always brightened my morning. I do not much care for your new morning DJ nor your new afternoon DJ. I too am going to look elsewhere for another station. So sorry you did not see the value of them on your station.

    ReplyDelete
  59. The morning show DJ and Music not my cup of tea.
    Will no longer be listening

    ReplyDelete
  60. So sad. A new station comes to town and instead of continuing to be the great station they were, WKLB tries (and fails) to be a clone. Loyal listeners would have stayed. Not anymore! I really miss Steve Kelly, his soothing natural radio voice/personality was awesome. New guy has a high pitch, overly energetic voice/style that is a turn off to me. Now JW & Lori too?! As you can see from all the comments - BIG MISTAKE! Bye Bye WKLB. You have lost this longtime loyal listener.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I agree wholeheartedly with all the comments expressing disappointment with WKLB's decision. Loved JW and Lori, as well as Steve Kelly. Listening to Cat Country 98.1 out of Providence these days.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Extremely disappointed to hear of JW & Lori being ousted from what used to be the best Country morning show in Boston! I am done with WKLB, & will now listen to Cat Country, or 101.7 the Bull. Maybe JW, Lori or Steve Kelly will show up somewhere, what a HUGE mistake by your management! Best of luck JW & Lori, you will be hugely missed.

    ReplyDelete
  63. WKLB has made one huge mistake!!!! JW and Lori made your station! New guy is boring and does not have a voice for radio. Looking for a new station ~ guess I'll go back to XM Radio.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Smart move by management in my opinion. I used to be a loyal WKLB listener, but the morning show was getting stale and I'm sure the ratings and listener numbers were way down. Hey, being #1 is easy when there is only 1 station broadcasting the country format with sufficient wattage to reach the entire metro Boston market. I had switched the the Bull for a more upbeat and enjoyable morning show, so I'll give the new guy a shot, who knows perhaps I'll return to 102.5.

    ReplyDelete
  65. My mornings are not the same. I no longer argue when my daughter asks if we can listen to the Frozen cd for the billionth time. Wishing them both the best.

  66. I've been listening to jw and lori for over 10 years and now that their gone i won't be listening to wklb any more. Until you bring them back on in the morning show!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. WHY? WHY? WHY? is all I can say. The best and most upbeat morning show and best evening show...gone. So am I... What you have now is blah and not worth listening to when you are already dealing with traffic.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I miss JW and Lori. They were definitely a team. Family. I guess the Miles guy is ok, but not as charismatic and interesting. I'm not a big fan of listening to callers and that sort of thing. I looked forward to hearing them on my way to work in the morning. They were funny. Entertaining! I'm not sure why they're gone. I've been wondering for days what happened to them. I wish them luck with whatever they are doing. I gotta tell ya, I station flip a whole lot more now. It's a bummer.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Agree with all of the above, leaving 102.5 to go over to the Bull

    ReplyDelete
  70. LEAVING 102.5 BIG BIG MISTAKE

    ReplyDelete
  71. I had switched to CAT out of RI awhile back because there wasn't any variety in the line up of songs anymore. Same new songs played over and over. CAT plays many older songs between the new. Howver I have always lustened to JW & Lori in the morning and enjoyed my commute more because of them. I like Kevin in the afternoon most of the time but he does talk a lot! Guess I will be full time CAT listener in the morning now. Too bad this decision was made, WKLB. Losing long time listeners doesn't speak well of your decision.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Totally disgusted!!! My kids and I loved listening to JW & Lori in the morning. We did the brainstrain EVERY day and laughed all the time listening to them. We have switched to the Bull and are now enjoying them every morning. Really miss JW & Lori!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. What's next? Loren and Wally????? from ROR? What's wrong with you people? Haven't you ever heard the phrase..." if it ain't broke , don't fix it?" I've found PRIME COUNTRY ON XM. Will no longer be listening to KLB.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I will no longer be listening to your station. Reading all the comments I did not find any that say they like the new format. I did not enjoy listening to story this morning about girl posing for Playboy and her boyfriend looking through her things and finding article. Loved listening to JR & Lori and their stories.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I am leaving.. Don't want to listen to someone who knows nothing about Boston and the Boston area he is not good at all.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Just threw the new show on to give the new guy a chance. First of all he barely speaks it's been all commercials and a few songs since I started listening. Second, did I just hear Santi with him?! That made me lyeay laugh out loud. I loved Santi on Jamn and was mad when he was let go. But adding him to the morning show here as he token 'local guy' feels so forced it Seems so desperate. You should have stayed true to the station you were and not chase the bull so pathetically. Now you're a joke and pushing me more to the bull. Good luck I'm out.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Thank God for SIRIUS XM RADIO because WKLB is not what it use to be in fact it SUCKS !!!! it was bad enough dumping Sunday morning country oldies but now with the departure of JW & Lori well at least WCTK in Rhode Island is reachable on the South Shore. KEEP IT REAL KEEP IT COUNTRY !!!!!!!!!!

  82. I thought I was listening to talk radio the first day I heard the new morning show. And it doesn't seem to be family friendly anymore. I used to feel comfortable having WKLB on in the morning taking my 8 year old to school, knowing there wouldn't be any questionable topics to explain, but now it doesn't sound any different than the pop stations.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Couldn't be more disappointed - I listened to the new show, not knowing about the switch and I thought I was on a different station because of the stupid stuff they were doing. I thought Lori and JW were awesome to listen to. If they resurface - thats where I'm going until, I'll check out the bull.

  89. Really lost a good loyal listener. The replacement was so not necessary and is terrible!

  93. ve never heard of BULL but will find it. I couldn't believe that JW and Lori were gone. Unlike alot of DJs in the morning they were pleasant and funny... a nice way to start the day. I used to listen from 5-8 AM every morning. I tried to listen to the new team and I HATE the show. They sound just like every other radio station ...nothing special. I just can't listen any more... its painful to listen to. good bye

    ReplyDelete
  94. I hate the new morning guy. Just saying. He talks about stupid crap I don't care about. Him and Santi have no chemistry. I do NOT want to hear other people on the phone all morning. I want music. I have NEVER rolled my eyes at the sound of a morning DJ coming on the radio, and that's coming from a person who dislikes morning radio anyway. I can usually suffer through because I have a long drive to work, but with Jeff Miles I just can't. I click off the second he's about to speak. I miss JW and Lori. :(

  95. Everything about the new morning show is awful the way they sound to the topics they have. Not a fan I will move to another station. Thank you Jw and Lori love you and best wishes

  98. I have been listen to this Country station since it began. I have enjoyed it, not matter what time of the day I could find great music and lots of laughs. I will be no longer listening to 102.5 any more. I will be switching to the BULL and the NH Country Stations as well as 105.7
    JW and Lori were the greatest.................
    I am sure your ratings will suffer

  99. I'm so disappointed JW & Lori are gone! I was hoping they just went on vacation. The new guy is boring. I can't listen to 102.5 in the mornings any more. I've switched to the Bull, but it's still not JW & Lori. You lost yet another loyal listener. It's a shame!

  100. Very upset with this. Lori and JW were perfect for 102.5. They were funny, wholesome, and fun. This new duo is not that at all. They don't represent what a country radio station should be. They would be better suited for one of the mainstream pop/rap stations. I will no longer support 102.5 in the mornings. You let go of some great people, and clearly there are many of us listeners who feel this way.

  101. I was born in San Antonio, but have lived in Boston for a looooong time. I really liked JW and Lori and frequently listened to them in the morning. I've tried to enjoy the new morning show but, nope... like so many others I just miss the show we had. I, too, will be switching to one of the other country stations. If JW and Lori read the comments here I hope they can feel how much they were appreciated, and what a hole has been left in Boston radio with their absence!

  103. Totally agree: stupid change! I was out of state in Feb-March,so imagine my reaction on NOT hearing JW & Lori on my return! Where did they go?? These morning people are awful;sorry guys but I don't want a lot of boring,banal talk in the morning: I want to wake up to music. JW & Lori had great chemistry,were interesting,"real" people,and provide an entertaining and enjoyable start to the day. No more. Boneheaded decision WKLB,you've lost a lot of formerly loyal listeners,including me.

  106. WKLB is no longer my favorite station. With all the changes they made, they've lost a loyal listener. I now really dislike the morning show and the afternoon DJ as well.

  107. Don't like the morning show anymore....I won't listen. I'm sorry to say that I've moved to The Bull in the morning. The talk show with the new people is too annoying, I really don't want to hear about other peoples problems in the morning.

  109. Do not like the new morning team....JW and Lori were the best and made me laugh every morning....the new people talk too much about nothing! So disappointed.

  110. I can't stand the new morning program. I find most of the content inappropriate for my seven year old to hear so I'm constantly lowering the volume. Hannah never seems to have anything intelligent to say. So incredibly disappointing. Time to switch stations for good.

  111. The new morning talk is inane drivel. Miss JW & Lori. Another listener lost.

  112. I loved listening to JW and Lori. They were good together. The thing that I loved the most about them, is that as funny as they were, they could be serious also, especially when it came to tragic events in the world; I would always tune in to them and feel comforted because they always handled it with sensitivity. It really is too bad they are gone. I changed my radio preset to something else and have not gone back.

  113. I am with the writers above, the new morning format is awful and the hosts are not interesting. Hannah in particular, I hate to say this but she does not sound very "bright", last week they were talking about the Zika virus in Rio and she says "what, it that like in the air or something?". Really, where has she been? And her laugh drives me crazy. We were used to listening to hosts who knew what was going on in the world and had something worthwhile to say. All the new hosts seem to care about are bad dates and relationships, more like a talk show. I have tuned in to the Bull.

  114. I miss JW, Lori and Hank.........If you were trying to appeal to a younger audience, you failed!! I'm gone also. I agree with all of the above comments. Does anyone enjoy the new format? I think not!!

  115. JW and Lori were easy listening every morning to wake up to. The new duo are wannabe and his screachy little sister. I tuned into WBZ as my new wake up program.

  116. I try to listen to this station on my commute, but it's just not the same without JW & Lori. I also really wish some more actual country music was being played, and less of the so-called country music that is really pop music made to sound country-ish. I guess I could always listen to Cat Country in RI, but then again, the primary morning guy is terrible. Awful, actually.
    Good thing I can listen to CD's in my car...

  117. I used to listen to JW & Lori every day. They made this "not a morning person" start my day off happy and smiling. Lori was so thoughtful and caring and JW was pretty corny, but very funny. I want WKLB to know that after one day of listening to their new morning show, I have erased 102.5 from my car and office radio and I now listen to 100.7, because Bobby Bones and his crew have replaced the morning smiles, the kindness and the good stories that were gone from 102.5 the day JW and Lori left. I listened to that foolish "ask siri" skit once, and just listening to it made me want to throw my radio across the room. You might think you brought in new listeners with your new morning show, but if you even bother to look at the comments on this page, I'm guessing you lost more than you gained. We miss you Lori and JW. We miss you a lot! If anyone misses JW & Lori's style, tune to 100.7 between 6an-10am. Bobby Bones is awesome and HE now makes my morning.
