Our second 'nega' note is also related to this: Some shows have added cohosts who are comedians, probably to make their features more 'fun' to listen to and watch.
Alas, some of the new cohosts are 'B' comics who are notorious for their sour and scathing way of making people 'laugh,' and thus end up as liabilities, instead of plus viewing factors.
As for other cohosts, a number of the 'oldies but goodies' are no longer around-and they've been replaced by much lesser talents who don't have the 'K' to cohost a morning show.

"I love when we get to be right on top of something," says the dulcet-toned host, who shares the show with a variety of cohosts ranging from bantering lesbian Amy Matheny to celebrity guests like author Rita Mae Brown.
Now the two-hour call-in show is cohosted by a straight woman and takes on all topics.
