There are two points people have mentioned in this thread that I think are the main reasons:
First, people are just getting bored of hearing the same thing over and over. That's the reason I stopped listening to NPR. They are in serious need
of new presenters. Sometimes I could swear I'm listening to voices from beyond the grave. I'm still a big radio fan, but I listen mainly to the
World Service, PRI, and some local, listener sponsored stations.
Second, regarding conservative talk radio, I heard a talk show segment where they were discussing this, and the general opinion of the guests was that
the average conservative-but-non-religious segment of America is getting a little wary of the religious right, who expound values that are seemingly
impossible to live up to.
