Lou Schizas and Corus have parted ways

Happy Capitalism is no more...just wondering if this paves the way for Jack "B" to take over the business reports...Just kidding...

I will miss crazy Lou! Good luck Lou...job well done!

 


The world would be so good if it weren't for some people...

Did he jump or was he pushed? Whatever the case, it'll be an improvement. He was an embarrassment.

Lou is rumored to have shorted CJR-B a year ago at $12 and covered his position this week at $4, and will be wintering in Palm Springs

Sue Ann Levy will also have to find a different place to spread her prejudiced bullshit, also, per her on the Twitter.

He does, doesn't he?

You'd almost think he had an agenda of some sort. Hmmmm.


Naaah. Couldn't be. A beacon of open expression and balance, that there Oakley fellow.

He was pushed.  According to Lou's twitter, he was getting calls asking if it's true even before he was told by the powers that be.  They must have given the word to everyone in the building before notifying him.

Personally, I liked his approach.  He never pretended to be a "broadcaster".  Now we get to listen to broadcasters who pretend to have a clue of the business world.

I don't mind Lou & don't know Mark Steyn but for Sue Ann, John Bolton & Conrad Black, a big No Thank You! 

To add to your list of "winners" .. from years gone by .. David Menzies & Charles McVety .. instant channel changers!

Re: Lou Schizas and Corus have parted ways

Apparently, Levy appeared for free for 15 years until she accidentally learned that all the other regulars on Oakley were paid. https://twitter.com/BorkowskiNews/status/1044766599264186368?s=20

Re: Lou Schizas and Corus have parted ways

A bunch of mamby-panzies on this post.  So now Oakley's show gets more bland - and we shall get milk-toast reporting about city hall - maybe.  Nobody tells it like it is - Lou and SueAnn did this - oh well TuneIn radio brings the world to my car and office - no need for more vanilla from 640

Re: Lou Schizas and Corus have parted ways

Sue Ann never told it like it was. During the Rob Ford era, despite her access, she was about the only city hall reporter who didn't break a story about Ford's drug use and misbehaviour. She was too busy competing with Warmington to be the Ford's family stenographer. With DoFo now in power there's even less need for this court apologist to get airtime.

Re: Lou Schizas and Corus have parted ways

They both stimulated good thought and discussion.  Their segments will be a loss to AM640.  I can't say the same for Dwivedi or Cutrara.

Re: Lou Schizas and Corus have parted ways

Whatever you think of Sue Ann Levy, it definitely sounds like they didn't handle her axing very professionally. Admittedly, this is pretty one-sided, but according to some of her Tweets, she found out from social media - not the powers-that-be at Corus. Love her or hate her, that's just wrong.  

If what she says is true, she likely deserved better after 15 years as a contributor there. It just doesn't speak well of Corus management. And I'm sure none of us would want to be treated this way.  

"I want to personally thank @troyreebglobal for the classy way I was treated today after 15+ yrs on the @johnoakleyshow. I loved that call from Nathan Smith 45 min, before my regular spot & after my axing had made social media. Very professional!
 
I also loved when Nathan Smith told me on the phone after 4 pm that he was waiting to hear from me. I guess I was supposed to phone him to ask if I was axed. Surreal. Rude. Classless.
 
I asked the PD why 4 weeks before the municipal election he would can the one person who knows the ins and outs of City Hall. Pregnant pause was the response.
 
So the new way of doing business on radio is to kick a contributor of 15 years to the curb, not even advise them in advance of today’s show and not pay them for 2 months. Shame on @am640."

Sounds like she wasn't very happy with their Capitalism.

(Yes I know that's an awful cheap shot; while I make it in this little forum...she'd excrete the same tripe into a newspaper that is believed by thousands to be the Public Record)

Re: Lou Schizas and Corus have parted ways

Looking at her Twitter feed, it sounds like she was definitely triggered. Poor sensitive snowflake, that Sue-Ann.

Re: Lou Schizas and Corus have parted ways

Don't know if anybody else heard this on Wednesday, but there was a strange moment on Oakley's show when he introduced Rocco Rossi, the president of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, to comment on the government reducing mandatory WSIB contributions for companies. 

"So Rocco," says Oakley, "you must be pleased that businesses will have to put less into this."

To which Rossi - who may not have any knowledge of what's gone on at the station over the past 24 hours - replies, "Yes, John. I'm a Happy Capitalist!"

This is followed by a semi-prolonged silence from the host, who finally simply responds, "Hmmm." 

The only word that fits is "awkward."

If calling a woman a whore because you disagree with their politics is the essence of conservative thought then good riddance, sir.

That mindset is on tragic display in the US Senate for all to see, this week. How uplifting.

Excellent job sir.

In one oh so brief post, you've encapsulated the deplorable rot that increasingly demonstrates what today's conservative has come to be. 

Truly sad.

I'm sure she has heard worse. And given the same.

It's a juvenile and misogynistic insult. Grow up.
