What it won't be is a show with a political point of view, like the programs hosted by Charlie Sykes and Jeff Wagner on WTMJ, and Mercure's main competition, Mark Belling on WISN-AM (1130).
"It will not have a political ideology. I want everybody to listen, and I'm going to go after Republicans as hard as I go after Democrats. It will not have a bent one way or the other."

Cuprisin Wrong On Mercure
When it was announced that John Mercure would get the afternoon drive time slot on WTMJ-AM, we had our doubts about it.
Today, on Mercure's first day, Tim Cuprisin did an article on Mercure. In said article, Cuprisin wrote this:
Well, I will admit I only caught the last ten minutes of the show, but what I heard was Mercure gushing over Scott Walker, just as much as Sykes ever has done.
Mercure must have had chills running up and down his leg as he described how frugal Walker is, both with his own money and the tax payers money.
I guess the crack reporter failed to bring up Walker's $2000+ per month SUV.
Yeah, I don't think I'll be listening to that show too much.
