Right-Wing Radio Promises More White Noise

old_radio.jpgBrian Stelter, current NYT reporter, former TVNewser editor, has a piece about conservative radio’s excitement at having a target back in the White House.

Which means Rush Limbaugh will continue his denouncement of the ‘mainstream media’ like he’s on a shortwave instead of being nationally broadcast to 3.58 million listeners.

Anyway, Stelter reports that GOP presidential also-rans are looking to cash in on radio stardom. Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee, and the Ambien-esque Fred Thompson.

Stelter writes:

However, next year promises to be a unique one, with grim forecasts about the economy and renewed interest in the presidency. Advertisers and syndicators are expecting a busy year because of the incoming administration. “I think people are going to tune in more than ever,” Maja Mijatovic said.

For the record, our radio is with our VHS player…at our local e-waste center.
