KTRB Online Poll Blows Up

PAPPAS Talk KTRB-A/SAN FRANCISCO's website got overrun with listeners voting for their favorite shows after TALK RADIO NETWORK's JERRY DOYLE told his fans to vote for him. Once DOYLE took the lead, other hosts, including JOHN LONDON, NEAL BOORTZ, GLENN BECK, and PHIL HENDRIE, urged their fans to vote, leading to some overzealous fans using scripting to vote over and over. The station had to pull the poll from ktrb860.com and replace it with a new poll.
"We’ve always known that each of our talk shows had a passionate following, but as a new station, even we were not prepared for the tremendous response that just a few comments from our hosts would generate." said VP/GM JIM PAPPAS.
