Default Jeff Ward

Apparently was canned from KLBJ. He was the voice of reason for the afternoon talk show world and this is going to come back to bite ownership in the ***.

Enjoyed him and Ed in the afternoons, Jeff was definitely more liberal than I like though.

Most of the people on here don’t have a clue who we’re talking about.

That's wonderful news. I might start listening in the afternoon again. Hope they fired little Ed the lap dog too. It's all about the rating and his TDS cost him his job.

Shame to hear that Jeff is gone. He was the best talk show host on Radio.

Listened to him daily for 10+ years.

I don't know about being the voice of reason...he really seemed to stir the pot to create drama. I wasn't a fan. Don't know what "TDS" is that some one mentioned.

I think they’re just mocking him on the Ed Wallace show. I suspect Dudley will be next to go.

He went full on liberal since President Trump got elected. Todd and Don would often refer to the afternoon show as the impeachment hour. Glad he is gone!! It would be awesome if they would put Michael Berry in that time slot!

Can't stand Jeff Ward, zero loss to KLBJ IMHO. Terrible talk show host, thought he was smarter than everyone, liberal, same old BS over and over, boring show. I like Todd and Don in the morning much better.

Anyone that thought Jeff Ward was a liberal is no better than the left wing hacks that tune into MSNBC nightly to have their own narrow world views regurgitated to them.

Jeff is no liberal. He is libertarian in the truest sense. He thinks all politicians are trash and has disdain for almost all government does. He was harsh on Trump and that turned a lot of people off. He is a lot of things—liberal isn’t one of them.

Talk radio will start your day off on a bad note. I turned my radio off over a year ago. My days improved by 1000%. Only opinion that I worry about is mine.

I pick up a Harmonica and learned to play it to pass the time on my 45min commute.

Used to listen to KLBJ years ago when I lived in Austin. I enjoyed listening to Sargent Sam in the mornings. At first when I listened to Jeff Ward in the afternoons he was alright but then his arrogant, big me little you attitude really started coming through and I shut him off.
Since moving back home I tried a few times to listen to him and Eddie Clements online and just could not take the drama. I am sure there are a lot of followers out there but it was just not my thing.

This could be said for pretty much all mass media. John Prine said it best. Blow up your TV, throw away your paper, move to the country, build you a home.

Jeff hated government and Trump. Ed was and still is a tool. I would go to 1200 out of SA when their show would come on.
