John talks about how he was informed by clear channel he would no longer be able to work for C2C. Main reason given was, "We wish to go in a different direction". ??

I liked listening to John B. Wells and his ratings were almost 5 times better than the normal C2C weekly shows ....

Art Bell did not have allot of nice things to say about TPTB at clear channel whom he felt sold him down the proverbial river because they would not come to his defense once upon a time.
Anyway, those who might be interested, here is what he had to say about losing his Captain's stripes at C2C
When originally posted the video link was working.. If these do not work go to youtu.be... Sean David Morton / John B Wells - 30 Jan 2014 ..

I understand that Mr. Wells had a lot of followers and support. I also know that my sentiments will not be agreed with; but I do not care much for Mr. Wells. I felt that he allowed for too many listener call-ins instead of providing content of substance. I always felt that this was a lazy way to go about things. I'd rather listen to guests than some lunatics calling in with far-fetched stories. I believe the weekday shows have a much better balance.

Show has slid down hill since it lost Art. Now it is nothing more I than something I turn on at night to help me fall asleep. Back in the Art Bell days the show would keep me awake half the night. Now I just lull right off to slepp as there has not been an interesting guest or refreshing topic in years.

I was a fan of Mr Wells until I heard an interview not too long ago where he was saying some rather nasty stuff about Art Bell. Haven't listened to him since.

In fact, C2C is not the show it once was...George Noory is the worst host ever. The only thing that program still has going for it is George Knapp.

Excellent point...made me laugh too, cause I can remember dragging myself out of bed to go to work after having been up all night listening to the show MANY times. Now I only listen on the nights where George Knapp is hosting.

The problem that I have with it is that a lot of the guests sound like lunatics telling far-fetched stories.
The was one a week or so ago that was talking about aliens living among us. He was really way out there.

That is sad to hear. I loved Wells. Im not a fanof Noory though anymore. I used to like George more early in the shows but nowadays he just goes along with his guests. Art was the best because he would actually call out some of his guests on what they were talking about. Wells and Knapp have carried the show for me lately. They need to get rid of Noory.

this was a guy that was clearly on the extreme right, that's why he got canned....in his you tube interview after getting fired, he made it sound like he was a true independent, able to see both sides, but, not happy with just one. but, on his radio show , he ALWAYS bashed the left, never had one good or positive thing to say about it. he had a couple of guests (the few that there were) that would talk doom-porn constantly, to the point that after a while you would think that Americans were like the Jews in the polish ghetto during WW2. the few times he stayed away from politics, he was OK, the rest of the time, I simply turned him off.

my problem with Noory is that every type of dream reader, psychic, OBE, shaman, astrologer, numerologist, that was out there, he would have on as guests. but, the actual UFO investigators, actual scientists, etc.... were few and far between.
Knapp is the man, and should have been given the fulltime job. he's a experienced investigative journalist, thus, he knows how to interview, put together facts, and separate them from outlandish fiction.

I remember Well's first few shows on C2C in which he was not as outspoken on especially government conspiracies as he is now...or better said...as he was on the ones after that.

In my view this is a solid example of media control by the government or whoever is in control of the media. He has become to dangerous...he is too popular and too many people are listening to him. That is the only reason why he had to go.

Maybe he can continue the good work at Art Bells new radio program..I am not sure but it is called Dark Matter I believe.

I am happy that John didn't crash with his car..late at night...on a deserted road...crashed against a tree...in a burnt out car.

Those nights sort of forced me to get a subscription to download the shows as podcasts, which I did back in the Art Bell days.
I ended my subscription after Noory had too many guests come on who would talk for half an hour about an interesting sounding subject, but instead of going into anything substantial, launched into this manic sort of description of how modern Israel is the fulfillment of prophecy.

BTW: I listen to The Paracast regularly (3 hours, once a week, prerecorded with no annoying callers, you post your questions ahead of time on their forum) for more objective and skeptical shows on the paranormal.

I have a feeling that they will be replacing John and possibly George Knapp with one of these three people.

Alex Jones
Gerald Celeste
Linda Moulton Howe

They seem to be on quite often, to the point of not being guests, but rather co-hosts. And they always spew the same stuff. Over and over and over.

I find Linda to be especially annoying as she sounds like she is reading from a script. No inflection, just monotone questions, which are often disjointed and have no relevance to the previous question. She sound like those crappy infomercials you here on early Sunday radio.

Then again, maybe they are cutting off the weekend shows all together.

I stumbled on C2C late one night by accident many years ago with Art Bell hosting - that led to many sleepless nights and I enjoyed his shows very much.

George Noory rarely held my interest. Wells and Knapp both were less interesting/engaging than the commercials.

Personally, and I think he wasn't very well-liked all around but, I liked Ian Punnett. I'd listen to the show again if he were a regular host. Maybe he was too 'snobby' (aka knowledgeable)

Exactly, because she makes her living lecturing and speaking at conventions so she just reads from those lectures, and you can hear them said exactly the same way if you hunt around enough on different radio shows.

Thanks for this info because I really do like to listen to Wells. There re so many "alternative" radioshows today and is a good thing. It must be lucrative and capturing an audiance.

Most of the conspiracy content is most likely too far fetched but the really serious ones can this way be told to the public...which is important these days we live in.

The basic problem with CtoC is its credulous nature. It doesn't really matter if you replace one credulous host with another credulous host, or one that bashes the right with one that bashes the left. The nature of the show itself is that they book nutcases who encounter no opposition from the hosts. it's an easy gig. So we are left with listening to people who claim there are glass houses on the moon, that Serpo is real, or that the Queen is a reptilian. And what do the hosts say? "Oh, wow!" is about the extent of it. Yes, some hosts have been capable of bringing up some opposition, but it amounts for a target for the guests to swing at.

After literally years of this kind of programming the only conclusion you can reach is that it must be on purpose, that cc intentionally wants to keep CtoC producing this pablum for the masses rather than anything serious or that would take resources to research. When CC says, "This is not the direction we want to go in.' the translation is that they don't really want to go anywhere they haven't already been. I am not privy to ratings numbers, of course, Either CC is completely wrong and their show is falling apart, or they are completely right and want to keep the audience they have, with nothing much exciting happening that might disturb the serenity of the night.

George Knapp is a welcome exception, but he already has a real job. Why would he leave that, where he is a well-respected journalist who has won national awards in his field, by slumming for CtoC, where he would be laughed off the stage by his peers? It's amazing he has done as much as he has, but apparently his employer's point of view is that his hobbies are his own business.

Bottom line is that CtoC is a show put on by nutcases hosted by nutcases with nutcase guests for an audience of insomniacs or night-shift workers who really have nothing better on the dial to listen to.
