The answer to KDKA should be “It’s your radio station and you can do and say whatever you want. But they are OUR radios and WE can tune them to whatever channel WE want. Good luck with your Air America programming. Ciao.”

Think of how many quotes and gaffes Obama could make talking for THREE HOURS!

THIS IS A TRUE STORY. I heard it today on KDKA. The KDKA management came on air @ 2pm and made a statement concerning their new policy for Kevin Millers’ show. KDKA has never done this before. So I do not believe this is a stunt. KDKA management is showing its cowardice in the face of obamas brownshirts intimidation tactics. This situation , in this country is eerily similar to the weirmark preceding the rise of Nazism.Germanies economy was in shambles, an astute, charismatic figure rose and promised change. Hitler then used his brown shirts to enforce his dogma and blunt any dissent.
This country needs to wake up!! Maybe this attempt at censure of Kevin Miller will open some eyes. Lets pray it does.

I was off today...and I listen to Rush (not local shows) when I am doing things at home.

All I can say is 'what the h#ll?' Has the management at KD lost its mind? I went to the Political Junkies linky...and I agree w/Jennifer (a poster there). This is some kind of stunt (maybe an idea was given to them by an Obama protester or two...I remember a few from when I used to listen to Mike Pintek...but hes gone, and I digress I really don't know who their regulars are anymore). Again...some kind of stunt...would Obama 'waste' three hours on AM talk radio in (as Jennifer said) a 'secondary' city/market? No. Would KD like to 'drum up some conservative vibe' by admonishing their noobie host...maybe.

And now maybe...just maybe...this is a little response to the John Murtha 'western PA is troglodite (my phrasing) racists...yada yada yada' commentary of today. Maybe some enterprising KDite decided to play their own 'race card.' Hmmmmmmm...

Not a stunt. Fred Honsberger, the drive-time host was discussing it further during his show. Since he’s a conservative, his show following Obama would be the only silver lining on the whole shameful ordeal.

Talk Radio as we know it today will be gone or underground.

Nope, ever hear of XM?

If the feds bring back the "fairness doctrine" buy stock in XM.

Rush will triple his income.

THIS IS FOR REAL! Haven’t posted here in ages but my Mom was listening and told me what went on. I heard the last 20 minutes or so of his show. The show following his had more people calling in appalled at what happened.

I don’t know why the statement is not on their website.

Here is a blogger who was listening at the time.

http://2politicaljunkies.blogspot.com/2008/10/kevin-miller-announcement.html

UPDATE 2:08: Statement from the parent company read on the air. In response to a number of complaints about the tone/content of the show regarding Senator Obama’s campaign, Senator Obama will be hosting the Kevin Miller show for one three hour show at some time in the future.

Obama will host the show with no input from Miller.

At the end of the statement, KDKA apologises to anyone offended by the Kevin Miller show.

UPDATE 2:51: Trying to get a copy of the statement. Once I can, I’ll post it here. On the radio Kevin’s listeners are comparing KDKA’s decision to Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.

Is this the Kevin Miller who used to be on WPTF in Raleigh NC?

I’ve heard of it.

Never seen it.

Who’s going to have the money to buy it and pay the monthly subscriptions?

And can’t the Feds just take away the satellite channel assigned to XM and give it to someone else, say, the “Glory to Obama” channels?

Is XM beyond the regulatory powers of the government?

I didn’t think so.

Actually XM and Sirius merged a few months ago and the merged company trades under the SIRI ticker.

There’s no link because it was heard on the air, not posted at their web site. But several other Freepers on this thread also say they heard it.
