‘Shocker': Liberal Talk Radio To Disappear In New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco In 2014


Rush Limbaugh seen smiling to himself – yet again

Is this the beginning of the end for commercial liberal talk radio? Not that it hasn’t been on life support from the beginning, but if Truth Revolt is right, it may be time to officially pull the plug:

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.

While the left is loathe to discuss the ongoing failure of liberal talk radio to gain a foothold, it’s nothing new. George Soros & Co. pumped hundreds of millions of dollars into Air America Radio, only to see it finally die after struggling to survive for six years. TR’s take on the latest failure:

Thanks to radio consolidation and the secondary status of leftist talk in major markets across the country, the final death knell for liberal talkers could be tolling. Leftist talkers simply don’t have the same radio draw as conservatives; KTLK was ranked #41 in the market in November 2013, with WWRL registering almost no pulse at all. KNEW registered just an 0.4 in the San Francisco market in December 2013, placing it #31 in the market.

Lest our liberal readers become dejected by this latest death knell for liberal talk radio, remember, you always have NPR. Courtesy of the American taxpayer, of course. You’re welcome.

  1. I’m smiling right along with Rush. I certainly won’t miss something I NEVER listen to. :-D Too many lies on lib radio.

  2. NOOOOOOOOO!!! I hope George Soros isn’t giving up. After all, we need some way of sucking the life blood out of him.

  3. The Libs will now dismiss radio as a viable medium, which might actually hurt NPR.

  4. Dr. Savage’s show starts its new time slot this new year. 12 -3pm PST. Funny how even Fox won’t even talk about the Doctor?
    Libs had radio programs?
