Liberal Commercial Talk Radio Disappears in NY, LA, SF in 2014



2014 will mark the beginning of a massive change for liberal talk radio across the country. In New York, WWRL 1600 AM will flip to Spanish-language music and talk, throwing Ed Schultz, Thom Hartmann, Randi Rhodes, and Alan Colmes off the air. In Los Angeles, KTLK 1150 will be dumping Stephanie Miller, Rhodes, Bill Press and David Cruz off the air in favor of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. In San Francisco, KNEW 960 will leave Miller, Hartmann, and Mike Malloy without a radio home in the market.

Perhaps a "trend" is coming into the light of talk radio.

With the recent ratings wars bringing cable TV FoxNews above MSNBC and CNN, talk radio could become a conservative dominated political arena.

And the story claims that NPR would be the only "Liberal" talk left on the air.

Maybe that's the plan because NPR is Government funded for the most part. With NPR at the "helm", it would be easier to consolidate the agenda.

But just the same, I think the advertisers have the final say. They *listen* to the polls and surveys that make the most money.

Could this be a "pre-2014-election" ?

It's not just liberal. Republican stations down in here in Tennessee are being replaced by music stations. It's annoying because I used to listen to Coast to Coast and Michael Salvage every night, but can't anymore. But what sucks the most is that there are no independent stations at all, and if you tried to make one you would just be tuned out by the big media stations. Free media is no longer an option anywhere except for online.

I have noticed that MANY talk radio stalwarts are already being squeezed.

Here in California you could find Michael Savage playing everywhere. Until this last year.

Same with Coast to Coast AM, now they only play the first half.

And on Saturdays, they NEVER play the 'back in time' episode which preceeds the normal broadcast

Maybe because liberals are busy living their lives and have better forms of entertainment then doom porn, while conservatives enjoy nothing better then partaking in the art of complaining, or listening to it.

I listen to a lot of talk radio; conservative, liberal, C2C, alternative www radio and it looks like from my perspective that radio, cable TV, satallite TV will be replaced by the www. very soon. AM Radio just isn't the viable advertising medium it once was. The whole communications industry is in a state of flux waiting to see how it will shake out.

Even Rush's advertisers are goofy light weight companies targeting the geriatric demographic that honestly isn't very internet savy. old schoolers

Personal video devises have changed everything. I was having lunch with 3 friends; all had smart phones, tablets and laptops. A total of 10 video screens with my phone.

They mean "pretend" liberals, don't they?
Hartmann, Schultz et al used to be liberal before Obama got elected.
After that their ant-war stance went right out the window from what I heard.
I used to listen to several of those on the list and so far as I'm concerned they changed their colors.

Leaving NPR as the sole voice of Liberalism?
Them and PBS have both become "voice of the government"

Politics aside truth is the missing factor in talk radio.

Oddly same in the UK.

We used to have talk radio which changed to talk sport (i hate sport) and LBC
got stopped being broadcast in my area and got replaced with another music station to
add to the other 30ish already there.

The only talk radio left in my area for talk radio is all BBC which usually has a presenter reading
a headline from a daily paper and asking "what do you think" with the same ten callers every day.

Not good.

here in Stockton, Calif...it's conservative, religious, Spanish, and sports and 1 NPR station...that's it. and of course, all the music stations...the only station now that I listen to as far as talk is NPR. if I turn on conservative, it sounds as if I live in a different country.

Wait what ?

NPR is the 'sole' voice of 'liberalism? ?

Since when?

Have people forgotten who foots the bill for NPR ?

We do according to this article:



The loss of federal funding would undermine the stations' ability to pay NPR for programming, thus weakening NPR.


www.npr.org...

So goverment sponsored 'radio' is this countries 'last,best,hope' for 'liberalism'.

*Chuckles

Hell don't have to pay MSNBC, and CNN, and ABC,CBS,NBC to be a mouthpiece for the current regime from mordor.

Decline in radio is primarily due to broadband, and 3g,and 4g wireless.

The thing is that liberals don't listen to much talk radio. We like to form our own opinions, based upon empirical evidence. We don't need to listen to a talk radio show in order to be told how to think.

The empirical evidence says otherwise.

Liberals been telling me guns have been killing people since 1935, and other recycled rhetoric.

Them evil bankers!

Them evil corporations!.

Gimme them free homes!

Etc.

Haven't heard an original opinion from 'liberals' in the last 13 years, well actually quite a bit longer.

Talk Radio, well Radio in general, like 24 hour cable news neworks are dying mediums. While I was not even aware their was Liberal talk radio it is not suprise if it going away faster than conservative radio. Conservatives tend to be of the older generations and radio is the medium they choose. Younger people choose things like Podcasts where MSNBC, NPR, NBC and 60 Mins dominate the ratings. It is no suprise that older conservative prefer fading traditional means of getting information and the younger liberals prefer new and upcoming methods of communication. It is very symbolic of what they are.

Limbaugh said he'll leave country if health care passes.
I'm still waiting for his promise.

I bet Mr. Oxycotin is angry because Obamacare only covers mammograms for women.

I listen to talk radio across the spectrum on satellite radio. It's not a liberal/conservative thing. Most of the shows, well, they suck regardless of how they lean.

Stephanie Miller: Three knobs sitting around being snarky at the world.

Rush Limbaugh: I'm not wrong. Ever. No way. Heed my authority!

Ed Shultz: The same approach as Rush but a different color of spin.

Michelangelo Signorile: Don't think the subject has anything to do with LGBT? You're wrong you bigot! It's all about LGBT always.

Sean Hannity: Progressivism is the root of all evil. Period. Let's expound on it for three hours shall we?

Glenn Beck: Sort of like Stephanie Miller in the three knobs part but when Glenn gets on a role, it's like fire and brimstone church.

There are a few who are pretty good:

Thom Hartmann: I think he sees things for what they are. If he would just stop carrying Obama's water, the show would be way better.

Mike Church: My favorite. His show is more history lesson than talk radio.

I wondered why.

I mean, these markets in these cities are full of liberals, right?

Then I realized that those markets are full of liberal politicians.

Not liberal listeners.

The market will feed whatever is the hungriest. The people aren't listening to the liberal market. They are refuting the liberal message.

Of course you'll not see nor hear this from the media.

But advertising dollars don't lie.

Liberals don't even know how to tune a radio.

I'm all for conservative talk radio but that states Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck...those are known dumbasses and dissenters that don't have a moral or intelligent fiber in their entire bodies. This isn't good if that's the alternative.
