Consistently the most listenable host around, bar none!

If Prem-rat can't work him in at some point we'll all have been Noory'd out of our next best host after Art.

Sorry George,
placeholder matters less and less as the years go by...

When does Noorys bloated contract expire? Syrett would be a better and most likely cheaper replacement. He's personable and isn't afraid of challenging guests and callers

Oh Noory's contract, um...well...the news is not good:

Tuesday, Premiere Networks announced an exclusive long-term agreement with Noory to renew and extend his relationship with the company.

"I first partnered with Premiere Networks to host 'Coast to Coast AM' in 2003, and I'm excited to carry the torch for years to come," Noory stated, according to a Premiere Networks announcement. "I want to thank the incredible team at Premiere and my amazing show staff, who have been with me since this remarkable journey started."

I wish there was a hard number on that, but it sounds so hopelessly open-ended... :'(

I have no idea is Syrett would be cheaper, but his interviewing and prep skills are far better. In addition he's not wow'd by woo, nor does he genuflect to it. in many ways he's like a more inquisitive Knapp, sans the obvious tie-in to Bigelow and the TTSA crowd.

Well I based that on the $500K/yr figure people throw around when mentioning Noory's salary. I would be surprised if this number hadn't been re-negotiated at the last contract signing, seeing that Premiere has been teetering on the brink of bankruptcy for the past year. They could ditch Noory and offer Syrett $250,000 Canadian($567.67 US)

The maths on that seem sound, and it's not like we haven't a long and somewhat checkered history of poaching Canadian talent - Peter Jennings being one of the nicer catches back in the day.

So I'm willing to allow it, as long as no one substitutes with Alan Thicke... ;)

Here's a tangential oddity as these things go - how is it that the entirely more talented Dave Scot gets 2nd tiered down on KONR and "Spooky Tim" who touches no bases for my ear, is elevated to MITD's main seat?

I suppose pre-existing contractural entanglements must be involved, but Keef is a fool amongst fools to not cash his Bart chips on on Dave, whatever the payoff needs to be.

Which one needlessly inserted themselves in the Wade drama like a good Keith stooge should? To the victor goes the 4th hand internet show

Occam's razor cuts to the quick again, well analyzed, Padre.

Dave Scott is his own man, ftmp...for a Bart pawn... :-\
