Top 6 Reasons How and Why Wes McElroy Annoys Me

Wes McElroy is a sports talk radio host on WRNL in Richmond, VA.  He can be heard on AM 910 Monday through Friday from 3pm - 6pm.  He annoys me for many reason and it's too bad he owns the best time slot for sports radio.  So, with that, I give you Ruben's "Top 6 Reasons How and Why Wes McElroy Annoys Me."

6. His outro music at the end of his show is completely aggravating, old and tired.  It is played just prior to 6pm and ends every show.

5.  I have 'tweeted' at Wes several time. He has never responded to any of them.

4. I have emailed Wes twice. One time he responded after 10 days, the other time not at all.

3. Wes loves baseball, it's his favorite sport, which in itself does not bother me. What does bother me is his incessent coverage the sport.  Baseball is boring and many sports fans just don't care about it any more.  We get plenty of Flying Squirrels coverage from Wes because of this.

2. Wes is from Philadelphia, PA and relocated here to take his current job.  Because he grew up in Philadelphia he talks about the Phillies constantly.  This is Richmond and most sports fans don't care about a team that plays 250 miles up 95N.  Richmonders identify with Richmond teams and Washington DC teams, not Philadelphia teams (Eagles DUH).

And the number 1 reason how and why Wes McElroy annoys me:

In the lone email he replied to "My listeners don't care about minor league football. Only the NFL and college football."

You are wrong Wes McElroy.
