WKNR 850 ESPN Cleveland Announces Changes; Jerod Cherry to work with Emmett Golden on Afternoon Drive Show

ESPN Cleveland WKNR 850 announced changes to its show schedule, as Aaron Goldhammer will move back to the morning show slot to rejoin Tony Rizzo on The Really Big Show, while Jerod Cherry and Matt Fontana move to the afternoon spot to join Emmett Golden from 3-5 pm.

The new show will be called “Emmett and Jerod” and reunites the pair from their days of hosting “3 Deep” together in 2013.

    Just noticed this as I haven’t been listening to the Golden Boys lately because Aaron Goldhammer has been really annoying as of late. Guess now I can tune in again now that he’s gone!

    Aaron Goldhammer is a total idiot and arrogant. I hated listening to him. He had no idea what Ohio is all about with football. I am very excited to be able to listen again in the afternoon.

    Well I guess that ends my listening to 850am. I would listen in to the RBS in the mornings but if Goldhammer is going back there I will not listen at all.

    Total dissatisfaction with RBS bringing back Aaron. Couldn’t listen when he was there before and surely not interested now that he’s back.

    Aaron is now on twice a Day? What brain trust thought that a good idea. He has become un-listenable. While he may be a decent behind the scenes guy, he is NOT an on-air personality;especially on sport talk. Get him outta the booth while you still have listeners. 92.3 is starting to be an option.

    RBS with Aaron has just turned too negative. I listen to the beginning of the show and when it turns against individuals and the Browns organization I switch to another station. This organization didn’t have much time to organize for the draft last year. Now is the time to judge them based on this years draft.

    I just found this page, and I have to laugh reading this string of comments. Aaron Goldhammer really is the worst in local sports radio. Maybe he thinks getting a few people calling in all fired up means it’s good for the show? I personally think for every one of people that call in mad at him, 100 or so must tune away. He’s awful. I won’t listen anymore when I hear his voice. He’s going to make “Bye, 850” the new “Bye, Felicia”

    I can no longer listen to the RBS show. The comment about bigotry being a seasoning for chick filet was the end of it. There has been a steady diet of this type of vitriol. It won’t be long before all of your listeners will agree with you as listeners like me will be gone. I don’t plan to boycott your sponsors, but on the other hand I will no longer hear their message.

    Just happened to see your comment Bob G and my response was the same that day. The arrogance of the”commentator” is astonishing. Chick Filet is perhaps the #1 fast food franchise in the country for a reason. Comments like that are just bad business. But I’m sure the “commentator” wasn’t a business major @ NYU and certainly has zero street smarts. Suffice to say WKNR from a business standpoint is in for a world of hurt when Tony Rizzo retires.

    Swimming against the current here, but Aaron is about the ONLY reason to listen to KNR–with the exception of Grossi. He is articulate, and he has a sense of humor and interest in the world that his used-car salesman partner/flack can never attain. And can I ask the question that many more must be asking: How does Emmett keep his job. Nice guy, great parent but not a sports talk host. It’s two hours of “what I did at home yesterday” backed by an unremitting laugh track. Then there’s the constant stream of “you know what I’m saying” fills. He must appeal to a different demography. Congrats to him for somehow selling himself to Keith William.
