This question is specifically for people who have listened to C2C for a decent amount of time, at least before Noory took over. In other words C2C
I can't help but see a drastic change in the direction of the program in the last few weeks. It seems like every show is now about terrorism, nuclear
or otherwise. I don't know about the rest of you, but if I wanted to hear about that stuff, I'd just turn on one of the 24-hour news stations
(especially FOX)...seeing as that's all they talk about.
C2C has been going downhill every since Art "retired", but these past few months it's almost not worth listening to. I find that a damn shame since
I used to listen to it religiously back in the late 90s and early 00's. It used to be about strange things that you wouldn't hear about anywhere
else. Things like UFOs, ghosts, psychic phenomena, bigfoot, nostradamus, time travel, and the like. Now they're wasting my time with terrorism!
As important is the subject is to us, it's still MUNDANE. By that I mean it's not something that's out of the ordinary. Its something you can hear
talked about during the daytime. When C2C doesn't have someone talking about terrorists blowing us up, it's some other crappy guest. Someone talking
about the Bible or whatever. What's with the sudden fundamentalist Christian tilt of the show now anyway? You can tell the demographics of the
audience have changed just by listening to the callers. Speaking of callers, why does Noory waste so much time taking calls (screened no less!)
instead of talking to the guest?
I remember when the show used to have quality guests almost every night. Experts in the various fields, people like Stanton Friedman and Russel Targ.
Now I'm lucky if I find one interesting guest every 2 weeks. I used to look forward to the weekends when Art was hosting. Now he's gone....so
basically the show seems to have nothing going for it now.
I suspect that the downfall of the show has something to do with Clear Channel's purchase of it a few years back. Art lost alot of his independence
and the show became more....I don't know....structured or something. It changed. I also suspect that they are trying to change the focus of the show
from the paranormal to politics and terrorism. In other words, they're trying to turn C2C into exactly what Art didn't want it to be. I wonder if
his leaving had something to do with that. I remember he made some comment about Clear Channel the day he announced his "extended vacation".
Of course, Noory seems more than happy to go along with what ever FOX News...I mean Clear Channel says. Er..anyway, sorry for the rant. What do you
