Where is Q100 Bert Show’s Jeff Dauler?

jeff daulerQ100’s Jeff Dauler has been mysteriously taken off the Q100 Web site.

His boss Rob Roberts today gave me a categorical “No comment.”

Jeff is on vacation this week, along with the rest of the Bert Show. (The top 40 station has been airing “best ofs” this week.)  I texted Jeff to ask him if he was no longer with Q100. At 1:33 p.m., he responded, “Why do you ask?”

When I explained that he was off Q100’s site and  Roberts said no comment, he wrote with a non-answer: “Must be a virus. :) ” When I suggested this might be a stunt, he wrote, “Why waste a stunt when listenership is off due to holidays?” I then asked if he’s negotiating a new contract.

At 1:52 p.m., he finally gave me the right answer once I asked the right question: “My current deal expires on 12/31/09. We’ve been negotiating in some form since July.”

So it appears Q100 has taken him off the site as some sort of hardball tactic in preparation for Jeff not being on the air come Monday if he doesn’t come to terms by tomorrow.

I suspected initially that he was negotiating because Jeff has not conveyed anything on his Twitter, Facebook page, Facebook fan page or personal sites about leaving Q100 and I’m sure Roberts would have at least confirmed his departure if that were the case.

Jeff’’s been an integral part of the Bert Show since it debuted in the spring of 2001 as a producer and on-air talent. He books guests and sets up a lot of the bits. He’s also the guy willing to say anything for a laugh (or not.)

Bert Weiss signed a five-year deal in early 2007 but I’m not sure the status of the contracts of other team members Jenn Hobby or Melissa Carter.

Jeff’s agent is B.B. Abbott, who also represents Brian McCann and Chipper Jones. Jeff, for several years, did on-site promotions for the Braves home games, hosting the little promotional contests between half innings.

I’m sure it’s a stunt of some sort. Either for listeners or due to his contract negotiations.

I can go ahead and tell you that he’s the best thing that show has going for it. If he leaves…I will no longer be able to tolerate that show!! DON’T GO JEFF!!!

Sometimes the 3rd or 4th wheels are the best thing on a morning show. Maybe he wants to strike out on his own.

I expect in 2010 there will be some changes in (and on) the air in regards to Atlanta radio.

I doubt it would be a stunt such as ” Where’s Jeff”, that would be too easy. Just check the dumpster behind a Flying Biscuit.

Jeff Dahler and the whole Q100 staff is nothing but self-centered. I quit listening long ago. It would not hurt my feelings to see the whole
crew gone…….

I just love my Sirius satellite radio. Regular radio bites in a big way.

It’s especially tiresome in the mornings, and always has been.

When I happen to be in someone else’s car, or a work vehicle without it, I’d rather have silence. The commercials are annoying, and even more so are the insipid DJ’s saying, “here’s a NEW song from so-and-so,” and it’s a song I’ve been hearing on Sirius for MONTHS.

Free TV is about to be history, and I’d have predicted free radio would have bit the dust before TV.

Jeff is the only thing tolerable on that show. The others make my ears bleed. I quit listening myself, but I’d be more likely to listen to him on his own show!

no talent a-hole…just another example of how bad Atlanta radio is when guys like him, Ryan Cameron, and Steve Barnes are considered”stars.”

For the last time Sirius/XM fans…I’m glad you enjoy it…but that’s not the topic being discussed here. Go back and listen to Howard Stern talk to a porn star or some more of your niche music and find another place to vent.

The whole show is springer radio. Trash. The voice disguiser is used to cover the same person doing the fake bits. War of the Roses was as fake as it gets. They have to tell you that you are on the air people or get your permission to use your voice. Fake Fake Fake show.

Jeff outgrew that show years ago….he is the only thing remotely funny on The Bert Show. Stop negotiating Jeff and take your chances elsewhere. You’ll be able to find something with a lot more credibility than working with an elf that has a shnaz, bad hair and a shiny waxed chest! Ewww!! Disturbing!

I hope he’s not leaving — the personalities on the Bert show are just right the way they are. Take any one of the 4 out of the mix and the show will tank (for me, anyway). Of the 4, he’s the least politically correct and that’s what I like most about him (plus he’s pretty funny).

Honestly it wouldn’t be a bad thing if they all got the ax. The bert show has been going down hill steadily for past few years. I loved it in 2002. I can’t stand it now because quite frankly, they’re boring and its just not that interesting any more. I think their well of stunts, bits, etc has just dried up. It’s funny because I talk to people regularly who feel the same way.

Yay! I hope he goes…. and his annoying wife, Jessica. I can’t stand her voice. Jeff brings the show down and they are much better off without him.

If Jeff leaves, who will be left to orally pleasure Bert? Melissa’s too busy pleasuring herself to thoughts of her girlfriend and Jenn Hobby is too busy scouring TMZ for the latest celebrity crap for her reports. Bert will step in and get Jeff’s deal done for this fact alone!

Who cares? The show is trash anyway. These people think because they are on the radio they are better than everyone else. screw them and their big egos (and Bert’s nose)

I actually could care less about Jeff. He irritates me in that he continues with jokes far longer than they need to be stretched. I swear he has to add 3 to 4 more adlibs onto a joke each time one is made. It makes me feel sorry for him. I like them all mostly, but him the very least. I can’t stand Jen’s voice though, she speaks like a robot when she is doing the entertainment buzz (very chopped up and says “um” waaay to much!) I love Bert and Melissa though (though I hate Mel’s laugh.)

Yeah, I may hate them all a tiny bit, eh?

I wish they would get rid of Wendy…… she is the airhead who’s biggest New Years resolution was to sit in the ‘family’ section at the Falcons games……wow… Met a ‘bobsledder’ who was training for the olympics just so she could ‘possibly’ go to the olympics……..LOSER!

The older I get, the less appealing that show becomes…how many times can they let the traffic girl tell all of Atlanta how many shots she did at 2am on a Saturday night…she sounds like she’s 16. On the other hand, Jenn just became better looking now that she’s single again…

He’s a jerk and the rest of them are wasting what little talent they possibly have.. I used to like them when they first came on the air now they constantly stoop to all time lows.. Whoever said it was the Jerry Springer of radio is right… Everyone calling in is a desperate women or jerk of a guy…

He really is the only funny one on that show. However, I met him at a Braves game a few years ago and he just nodded to me then went back to his phone. Guess I wasnt hot enough.

Jeff deserves better than the Bert Show. Everytime he voices his opinion he is shot down by the head lesbian chief. Without Jeff the show would be useless. We know what Butt kissing Bert’s answer is going to be without opening his mouth. Therefore, q100 should just have the lesbo run the show.

It would be nice if we could get rid of ALL the morning shows. They all equally suck. These people are not funny, they don’t know anything about what they talk about. CD’s are the way to go in the morning!!!

Jeff is the snark required to keep the show from getting too sappy, cheesy or childish. Ya can’t do the show without the snark.

Jeff is not one of my faves on the show, but he can at least carry the show when Bert is gone, which is too frequently in my opinion. Whenever Jenn and Melissa are left alone to do the show, it sucks! I hate to admit it, but the show needs him

Bottom line the show is one of the top morning shows in Atlanta, second to V103. They make a lot of money for Cumulus and his leaving in my opinion would be a loss.But my opinion can’t hold a candle to all the pin heads who have already expressed theirs.

Give the poor guy a break, he’s more sick of hearing Bert say “uummmmmmmmmmmmm” then we are because I am sure he says it off the air too.

“Therefore, q100 should just have the lesbo run the show.”

I agree completely. She’s smart and funny.

As for shutting up about my satellite radio, why should I? Any post about free radio and how it may or may not suck because of X, Y, or Z is fodder for a plug about Sirius.

Howard Stern is a moron, but they have lots of great programming that puts free radio to shame. The comedy channels alone are worth the price…mush funnier than any morning show on Q100.

See? I brought it back to point!

so glad for satellite radio – no longer have to listen to these meatheads. Stern is one of the best interviewers and radio personalities on the air.
