Not a troll, just a newbie.
This is legitimate. It happened shortly after the 2 o'clock hour.
I wouldn't be surprised if Miller is sitting on it right now for fear of his job.
Ok yes, I saw your post after mine, however it seems as if it may be an example of what the “Fairness Doctrine” would bring, and not actual action on CBS’s part.
Did Miller say anything about this? Was he cut off abruptly? Even if he was cut off abruptly, then it could still be a “stunt” as described. Which, I’m not saying is a bad idea to illustrate what the “Fairness Doctrine” could do, but still, is not what the OP claimed.
I think cooler heads should prevail here; we must wait and see what the real story is. Radio personalities do stuff like this from time to time to draw attention to either themselves or a certain cause. It doesn’t necessarily mean CBS pulled the plug...
...UNLESS, again, misspittsburgh or you have some other source that confirms the claim made in the OP.
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.
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.
I apologize to the OP then! Bygones!
