  1. Just thought it’s interesting timing after they just completely screwed up not having a special tribute to the late MLB HOF star, Tony Gwynn ~ #GoodMorningSanDiego

    • That is a great point. Many people in San Diego are not going to like the change. The morning show known as the World of Sports is one of the most popular morning shows in San Diego. I guess these moves had to be made in order to compete with The Mighty 1090. The biggest radio station in town.
