Chip Franklin

I used to tune in every day, then less and less. He seems to have lost his mind. He is nasty mean and stupid. I won’t waste any more time on Chip shame on KGO!

Don't waste your time

Hard to believe the once great KGO has sunk this low, this host is terrible! Seems like they are trying for the 18-34 year old crowd but this guy is a few generations back. He wants to be all liberal, but he does things like calling undocumented immigrants and dreamers "undocs", and the way he says it sounds very derogatory. Sounds like something Trump would say. Several times he encouraged listeners to go see the movie Red Sparrow because Jennifer Lawrence has topless scenes. "You get to see her boobs, really you can see her boobs!" he repeatedly said. Not sure I need to hear a 60 year old man encourge me to ogle the breasts of a 20 something girl. Kinda creepy...kinda Trumpy. Much of the show is biult around adolescent humor like sex and fart jokes, that aren't very funny. This guy is like the Benjamin Button of talk show hosts, he looks and sounds old but he's really a 12 year old boy inside. Much of the rest of the show is mundane banter about the host and co-hosts home life. Nobody cares about your middle age domestic home lives, what your dog's name is or whether you use tide pods in the laundry or old school powder. Nobody cares! Take some calls from listeners and stay on one topic for awhile! The only time its bearable at all is when Nikki the co-host fills in. She was just a news reader but was brought on as co-host to help Chip pronounce peoples names correctly and keep his scattered thouhgts together I assume. ( It's not working). As I said, it's a shame that KGO doesnt have something better in drive time.
