Steve Harvey piped in to replace Olivia Fox

At least they gave you a day's notice.

I am a faithful listener of the "Olivia Fox" morning show. I am displeased with the decision to replace the show with a "NOT SO FUNNY", Steve Harvey. I listened to the show on Wednesday and was furious with the change. Steve Harvey is loud and argumentative. Quite frankly, his show made absolutely no since at all. He reads from a email bag and comment on things people are writing to him about. If you call that variety then its obvious that the president of clear channel has no clue. Olivia if you hear or read this, i wnat you to know that the Bay area wil surly miss you and what you brought to the table. Steve's lack of funniness showed on his least BET awards hosting show. He was stale and boring. I guess thats why Ced and Bernie only let him host "The Kings of Comedy" instead of actually being a headline!

I was also a faithful listener of the "Olivia Fox" morning show. I don't think a lot of research was done prior to making this change. With the olivia Fox show you knew of upcoming events in the community. I don't want to hear about strawberry letter or anything else from Steve Harvey. he is not communicating with local callers and i just can't relate. My daughter looked forward to listening to Olivia on her way to school. i enjoyed simple things like the word of the day, Leroy and Tay, and the two guys that did the movie previews.An abrupt decision is almost alway's a bad one. Now i don't laugh on my way to work in the mornings, and I am searching for a new station to listen too in the mornings.

You Lost a Listener

I loved listening to Olivia Fox in the morning and so did my elementatry school-aged daughter-it was one of the few shows that I could relate to. As much as I enjoy Steve Harvey's comedy, I and my daughter simply cannot relate to his version of comedy. The void that Olivia Fox left is immense and growing. Clearchannel has lost yet another listener.

I also listened to the Olivia Fox morning show. I even would get up early just so I wouldn't miss the "O-scopes". I tried to listen to the new show, but it wasn't worth the time. I used to call my friends and say guess what Olivia and Shug said today, but nothing on Steve's show is worth repeating. I don't even listen during those hours anymore.

I too was a faithful listener of the Olivia Fox Morning Show but now I'd rather channel surf than listen to the Steve Harvey show. At times he can be somewhat entertaining but it is not the same. Olivia was REAL! Olivia was informative and she interacted honestly and thoughtfully with the local audience. She is surely missed and "The Beat"won't ever be the same.

Let me tell you this, i've lived in some major metro areas(nyc,wash.d.c)so have had a chance to listen to some of the great morning shows in those areas.But when i moved back downsouth after hurricane charley,i came across this "olivia fox Morning show",Not only was this show funny as hell, but they were informative about what was going on in the area,grounded in the community. It sucks,i got other words but cant say em' here, cleary this was some white,tight,manager/ceo, that made the decision to just cut these talented people off tha air like a light switch.For once in this radio market down here which is "rock,Country,classic rock, and all the other hillbilly crap",i thought we as black folks had a station that was as like they like to say "urban" and somewhat street. but i guess not, they say racisim has died off,but it's no longer being shouted to us in yah face like the 60's, it's smooth moves to keep people out of touch. if anyone knows what happened to olivia foxx, please post tha truth here. As for that station they suck, and i hope everyone stops listening to em',we all need to protest, write letters, and get some news coverage on this, cause the truth needs to be heard.
