Well, that’s one reason to vote for the guy

Tuesday, Apr 26, 2022 - Posted by Rich Miller

* Um

Co-host of Chicago’s Morning Answer on AM-560, [Amy] Jacobson said she saw Irvin at a fundraiser hosted by Chicago’s “Common Sense Conservatives” Friday on the city’s Northwest Side.

Jacobson said she had questions for the first time Republican candidate, but he avoided her.

“Richard Irvin walked in, I waited for two minutes and walked up to him. No idea about the show. I don’t think he knows (AM 560) exists,” she said. “He kept avoiding me. I’d go from room to room trying to talk to him.”

    “Well, that’s one reason to vote for the guy.” oh I needed that laugh. Thank you, Rich.

    The gall of someone to not know about your AM radio show in 2022 /s


  3. - New Day - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 12:15 pm:

    “I don’t think he knows (AM 560) exists,”

    Well that puts him with 99.5% of Illinois.

    Seems like Pritzker and Irvin have something else in common.


  5. - Jocko - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 12:20 pm:

    Amy should’ve reminded Irvin, “I’m the former Channel 5 reporter who interviewed Craig Stebic in a bikini.”

    Did not see Jocko’s post as I was typing… sorry for stepping on your post Jocko

    Amy who?


  8. - TheInvisibleMan - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 12:38 pm:

    The click through headline is pretty interesting on its own, even more so than jacobsons lack of self-awareness.

    With friends like Richard Irvin, who needs enemies.


  9. - Grandson of Man - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 12:40 pm:

    Naturally it’s hard to imagine Irvin would know about AM-560, given that he was a Democratic-supporting liberal recently.


  10. - JoanP - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 12:46 pm:

    = He kept avoiding me =

    He’s smarter than I gave him credit for.


  11. - Joe Schmoe - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 12:50 pm:

    AM 560 what? Look at the latest ratings for the Chicago market. The station doesn’t even show up on the top 30 stations. Not what I would call a powerhouse or market leader. A piddling number of listeners….


  12. - Pizza Man - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 12:52 pm:

    Da’ mayor missed the previous IL Gop debate, avoids Amy… not a true Republican obviously.


  13. - Pot calling kettle - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 12:59 pm:

    Irvin later contacted security regarding a suspected stalker.


  14. - Streator Curmudgeon - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 1:03 pm:

    Irvin probably had his head buried in the National Enquirer.


  15. - ArchPundit - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 1:05 pm:

    “Don’t you know who I am?”

    “No. Could you stop following me?”


  16. - Real - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 1:14 pm:

    Ken Griffin gave Irvin specific instructions to avoid all media.


  17. - OneMan - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 1:21 pm:

    If she hosted the Radion Shopping Show on WBIG 1280 he might know who she is (one of our two radio stations in Aurora.

    Aurora’s city hall is not a long drive from any part of the city so I suspect he doesn’t listen to much AM talk radio Amy or he tuns into McKay in the Morning on 95.9 FM The River (our other station).


  18. - MrMisery - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 1:35 pm:

    It really is hard to believe in the year 2022 AM Radio is still around.


  19. - Bruce( no not him) - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 1:40 pm:

    “He kept avoiding me. I’d go from room to room trying to talk to him.”
    From talk radio host to stalker. We cover all the bases here at Am560.


  20. - opinions opinions - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 1:45 pm:

    == “He kept avoiding me. I’d go from room to room trying to talk to him.” ==

    If a man was saying this about a woman he would be cancelled.


  21. - Primate - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 1:52 pm:

    Hat tips to Grandson of Man. The good thing is that Rauner/Irvin’s allegiance to the Democratic Party is now making it into chatter around the state. This matters. Republicans are finally waking up to his corruption.


  22. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 2:16 pm:

    The left handed “do you know who I am routine”

    If you look at the ratings… not many know who they are.

    Plus, what, she gonna get a sound bite Proft can use against him?

    No thanks.

    Good on Irvin


  23. - Matty - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 2:16 pm:

    I didn’t know radio exists outside of NPR affiliates.


  24. - David Agnew - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 2:28 pm:

    The mayor lives in downtown Aurora nowadays, OneMan. Three block walk to City Hall.


  25. - Skeptic - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 2:33 pm:

    They’re still making AM waves? The last I heard from AM 560 it was a Spanish station.


  26. - Who is this? - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 3:34 pm:

    Some of us don’t know why you got booted from on-air TV?


  27. - Bruce( no not him) - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 3:42 pm:

    Recently, I accidently put my car radio on AM.
    Wow, that’s a whole lotta nothing going on.


  28. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 4:04 pm:

    The thing is to the link…

    How does Irvin say things so crass to Black Lives Matter to let a headline be so impactful to hurt his own narrative to “own the libs”?

    So it’s racial, not really, but is racial because “appeasement”?


  29. - ArchPundit - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 4:05 pm:

    ===If you look at the ratings… not many know who they are.

    Salem doesn’t subscribe so you cannot see their ratings unless you are a Nielson subscriber. It’s pretty clear that Salem isn’t a radio business, but a marketing company that happens to offer some radio time.


  30. - Marty Funkhouser - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 6:56 pm:

    Proft and Jacobson don’t even register on the list of top 10 morning shows in Chicago.


  31. - Excitable Boy - Tuesday, Apr 26, 22 @ 7:15 pm:

    - Well that puts him with 99.5% of Illinois. -

    Drastically overestimating their audience.


  32. - Now I’m down in it. - Wednesday, Apr 27, 22 @ 10:10 am:

    This is hilarious. Irvin knows exactly who Amy Jacobson is. Good on him for avoiding her.
