    Default Where is Ellis Cannon?

    His bio taken down from 104.7 site, Michael Savage now in 6-9pm slot, can't find any info. Am I off base?

    Cheers, Frank

    It would appear he was fired. I started looking around & saw the same as you - all info related to him removed from the WPGB site.

    Ellis Cannon has been fired from his talk show at 104.7 and other duties he had with Clear Channel Communications.

    The move is shocking since Cannon, whose show was heard from 6 to 8 p.m. week days, regularly had been receiving good ratings and seemed to be held in high esteem by Clear Channel executives.....

    See link above for the rest of the story.

    Bob Smizik has the answer. Ellis is gone, hope he lands on his feet somewhere. Conversely, I hope MM doesn't come over from TheX.

    This has nothing to do with politics but... I wish they'd completely wipe out 104.7 and turn it back into music. Channel was kick *** when it was playing some old school funk and r&b

    Didnt they play free forum rock/jazz/r&B back in the 70s? Those days are long gone and never coming back. Internet radio is great..and Sirius/XFM is cool too for old school funk/R&B.
    As per Cannon, it will be interesting to see where he ends up. He was a Pirate apologist but what do you expect when he was on the flagship station

    It has been some time since we have not had E on the radio, and the months have been bleak. "the fan" on 94.7 is a miserable attempt at presenting a sports show. Andrew Filipone appears to have zero ZERO sports knowledge, and attempts to make the show work by merely contradicting every point that callers make, even to the degree of contradicting himself on subsequent phone calls. Further, his feeble attempts to invigorate callers by raising ridiculous questions are unbearable. PulllEEEZE can someone find a way to bring back E??????

    I'm not a big fan of any talk radio. most people on talk radio come off as obnoxious attention whores even when they aren't trying BUT... that said, Ellis had a following and you'd think with an overall lack of talent in Pittsburgh for sports knowledge and personalities with a personality, someone like Ellis Cannon with a fan base would have a job.

    Where does one draw a line with hiring credntials for sports talk in town? You can't rely on sports knowledge and personality since none of them have those requirements worthy of being granted a job, so you'd think that having some sort of fan base would be next in line since ratings are all that matters
    The Standard Is The Standard and The Pittsburgh Sports Forum Is The Standard

    When was that? There was a station when I moved to Pitt in 2001, it was all disco, funk, soul and ****, I listened to it constantly. I thought it turned into Bob but maybe it was 104.7 I can't remember now.
