KNBR

98% Giants talk, 1% Niners and 1 %how great the hosts are!

Pretty much, although these percentages do changed when Niner season is full blown, more so with Fitz & Brooks.
Every show talks about the Niners pretty much all day when the football season is on.

knbr f**king sucks. they have a million programs dedicated to the giants and talk more about the stupid warriors than niners.

They load-up on what ever is in season. They're the flagship station for the 49ers, Giants and Warriors so they get most of the play when their seasons are active. KNBR is obviously heavier on the Giants this year because they're the defending world champs. But the Niner coverage is ramping up daily. The Warrior talk is all but gone right now with the NBA lock-out which I don't miss one bit.

It wasn't always that way. The Giants are winners. The Giants are a top flight organization. The Niners are losers still trying to win with a proven loser as a starting QB. The Niners don't excite. Losing doesn't excite people. NFL, Football is by far my favorite sport. I could listen to football conversation all day, but I understand why folks to Giants in this market.

Hopefully that will soon change.

The entire NFL is relevant all year long even when there are no games played. Majority of the people want to hear football no matter how their team is doing. The problem is that there isn't anybody at KNBR air that appears to understand or be able to talk football. The beat writers can talk more about football intricacies than the KNBR radio hosts.

They used to have Lincoln Kennedy every once in a while and those were awesome shows that talked a lot of football in general. Right now, all they have are hosts who love baseball like a cult or Rod Brooks/Tom Tolbert who can talk some basketball but even don't provide solid insight.

On the flip side, the 49ers need to do a better job with presenting KNBR with more athlete/announcer availability.

giants and warriors have always come first before the 49ers. so sad.

I think Rod Brooks is the only KNBR host with logical Niner talk, then again the folks calling in are usually dummies, which makes his job quite easy.
