    Chaos at WBEN, as Baurle and Bellevia are rumored to be feuding

    Chaos at WBEN, as Baurle and Bellevia are rumored to be feuding

    Sources say that Western New York’s most listened to talk radio station — WBEN Newsradio 930 AM — is ‘imploding with chaos’ behind the scenes, and it could lead to drastic programming changes.

    The source goes on to say that Bellavia asked the White House to reject Baurle’s security clearance to attend the East Room ceremony where President Donald Trump bestowed the high honor. Weeks later, Baurle discovered the betrayal and has refused to go on air with Bellavia ever since.
    Well isn't that special. I wonder what would have prompted Mr. Bellavia to ask that Tom's security clearance rejected.

    Baurle strikes me as being a bit of a douche off air (he's definitely one on air), and he definitely has a huge ego. Bellavia probably didn't want to risk Baurle being an ass and have it tied to him.
    I can't stand listening to that show anymore when Bellavia isn't on. Since their traffic reporting at 5pm skips the 10 after report I usually miss it, and I've found it's not that accurate for the 990/290 area even though they can literally look out the window of their offices and get a live view and not rely on delayed cameras, so I rarely even try to listen to their show anymore.

    Maybe Bellavia was just saving him from the embarrassment of getting denied after a background check and interview by federal authorities. His episode from a few years ago might be disqualifier for getting any type of clearance

    Two valid reasons I didn't think about.

    The only thing that bothered me listening to Tom or Sandy was when they would hang up on people who didn't agree with them. At least that was the impression I got why they were hung up on.

    I wouldn't consider the Buffalo Chronicle a reliable source. That being said, I am tired of Bauerle. He supported Bishop Malone and Dr. Gosy. He's such a name dropper. He's a middle aged wanna be rock star. B O R I N G.
    I wish David would come back. I think Bauerle gets jealous of the (well deserved) attention Bellavia gets.

    I do not understand why WBEN keeps Bauerle on the air.

    People still listen to him. If they weren't they wouldn't be able to sell commercials.

    both are hotheads, back then they could do that not anymore. the best shows were when the mouth and rocker tom would do shows about mayor erkel and other idiot politicians around here. Then it all stopped hummm wonder why

    the mouth needs to retire and get off the air and tommy I think everyone has had enough of him already. you see this clown out in public his testicles went to his head he likes himself so much.

    how about this new guy that fills in for the mouth. Joe high beam beamer. cant listen for more than 30 min with that voice. high beam and squeeeky voice tony all moring
    no thanks.

    Bauerle and Bellavia's facebook page has been changed to Bauerle. At least the pic has.

    Bellavia has not been on air with Baurle since he received the Medal of Honor in a ceremony at the White House.
    I'm fairly certain I've heard him on air since then. not frequently but at least a few times

    Official response from WBEN. Not buying it and pretty sure I am done with Tommy Nerd.
