love it, Punnett again 'I'm giving the regular callers (The Sad Pack) the night off' lol

he then said he realizes others may feel differently but he's glad 'George has my back'. Noory did address this and said other Coast hosts can do what they want.

Good.  Syrett does the same thing on occasion.

Yep Corny complained to Noory one time about Ian blocking the regulars...

The Sad Pack feels entitled.

come to think of it, didn't Noory have a rule at one point for how often callers could call in? i seem to remember that.

Yes he did, but he never followed his so-called rule.  I think he claimed it was once a month.  I could be wrong.  However I do recall a guy that tried to call in a second time in a week and Noory scolded him.  But Annie From Alabama called four times in that same week.

Wow. This guy sounds like he really sucks. ;)

One of IHeart's predecessors, maybe Clear Channel or Jacor, had a corporate policy on how often callers could call individual shows and/or win prizes.  WLW used to play a spot at least a couple times a day spelling out those rules. I heard it every weekday during evening drive time on the way home from work.

Ian's reaction to the open lines caller who thanked him for shutting down the regulars ("it's not personal, not them vs us, it's meant to give infrequent callers an opportunity") leads me to believe George set constraints on the rent-a-hosts' efforts to curtail them.  He certainly does not want to run them off, considering there are nights without the regulars he'd be doing either a monologue or risk running out of 3×5 card questions.

Or cutting into his on air nap time.

Thing is, these sad pack callers repeat their stories so often that it's hard to tell if it's a replay or not. Maybe they are a tool of sNoory to obfuscate playing hooky.
Eh, nevermind...
