CA Right-Wing Radio Becomes Victim of Right-Wing Conspiracy

ON AIR.JPGAfter the Republicans were in power for eight years (with totally unchecked and unprecedented power for six years), the economy tanked. Tanked like very few people alive have ever seen. Big old sloppy right-wing valued, freed market meltdown – tank.

And because of wide-reaching powers becoming a wide-reaching recession, the once wide-reaching California right-wing radio is the latest casualty of the economy.

LAT’s Michael Finnegan reports:

But for all the anti-tax swagger and the occasional stunts by personalities like KFI’s John and Ken, the reality is that conservative talk radio in California is on the wane. The economy’s downturn has depressed ad revenue at stations across the state, thinning the ranks of conservative broadcasters.

For that and other reasons, stations have dropped the shows of at least half a dozen radio personalities and scaled back others, in some cases replacing them with cheaper nationally syndicated programs.

Casualties include Mark Larson in San Diego, Larry Elder and John Ziegler in Los Angeles, Melanie Morgan in San Francisco, and Phil Cowen and Mark Williams in Sacramento.

Didn’t the monster Dr. Frankenstein created eventually kill him and his family?
