WAHOO!!! JERRY SPRINGER SHOW CANCELED ON CLEVELAND (Clear-Chanel) WTAM 1100 AM !!!

Posted on 03/11/2006 4:39:02 AM PST by InfantryMarine

Heard it (partially) last night on air and confirmed it this AM with a call to the WTAM 1100AM Newsroom.

Springer is G-O-N-E! (As of this coming Monday)

Wonder if this is isolated or he's dead nationwide?

Isn't he all that was "carrying" Airhead America as well?

THANK GOD WE DO NOT HAVE HEAR THAT MEALY-MOUTH JERK HERE ANY LONGER!

That Glen Beck wasn't much better. Put Trivisonno on before and after Rush.

Huh.

Cleveland MUST be a tough town.

First I've heard of a talk show people were forced to listen to!

I suggest moving elsewhere.

Here in Colorado for instance, if you don't want to listen, you're allowed to turn the radio off.

I've got to disagree. Triv is entertaining but too local. Glenn's show is really great. Bring him back!!

The way I understand it is that Air America is only the distributor for Jerry Springer's radio show. They neither own or produce it, but they do take credit for the station as an affiliate. Since his show was the only AA "product" on air there it can be said that AA loses it's Cleveland station. Live by fake numbers, die by fake numbers.

Here's a link;

BTW, Franken is the only thing carrying AA, which is like building on quicksand.

I know it.  If you don't like someone, don't turn them on.  That's what I do.  I know a lot of people that get a big kick out of Jerry's show.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that. heh!

WooooHoooo! Thank goodness!

I stopped listening to WTAM in the morning 'cause of Springer. He sure didn't last too long.

Any news on what is replacing him though? They were trying to balance out against Rush...like that could happen.

Glenn Beck's show is a dumbed-down Sean Hannity show which is a dumbed-down Rush Limbaugh show.

In Houston we have a Glen Beck, should have heard him try to take credit for 'breaking' the ports deal. When we know it was Savage that was screaming first and the loudest ...what a jerk Beck is. I've also heard Beck say he doesn't like freepers.

I just found out that the show on the Cleveland station was the highest rated show for all of Air America, even beating out Franken everywhere. This isn't good news for them.

Oh no........Sean Hannity to the rescue. Will he be picketing the station on Springer's behalf.

Dial it over to 1420 WHK for The Laura Ingraham Show.
As far as who replaces Springer on 'TAM, my guess would be Tony Snow since WTAM is a FOX affiliate and Tony isn't on the air in Northeast Ohio.

HI.. long time no "see" !

I am hoping they will pick up on Tony Snow.. I can now only stream him & not too practical to sit at computer the entire time! I like Laura also.

Same conflict in theh 12-3 time frame. Like both Rush & Dennis Prager

I don't see how his show would work on radio, on tv it's obvious but radio? I know it's a different format but who takes him seriously?

Forgive the FReepMail (it was to be THIS post).. I too need coffee I guess. :-)

@

I listened to Glenn Beck before WTAM replaced him. He was very friendly w/FReepers before the war..the Rallies for America had huge FReeper presence.. that is how I found FRee Republic as a matter of fact in March 2003..

It is possible many of the "in your face" one-issue FReepers have been all over him for something.

I simply haven't listened to his show so don't know. I recall liking him for most but sometimes he would go off the wall & even I didn't chose to keep the radio on. I am glad we have a variety of types of shows. They all can't be Rush or Tony Snow.. with the different personalities & styles there is someone to appeal to most conservatives.

I think I viewed about 15 seconds on TV once & about the same amount of time on morning on radio when I turned on radio & it was still on WTAM from day before & Rush..

At first I thought it was a sub for Laura (during her cancer treamtement time) .. don't know his voice but when the lib message vomited forth, I knew I had the wrong station w/o looking.

I don't know if he was cancelled in the Houston area but I hope not. His show is the very best comedy series on the air.

This is indeed good news. It is bad enough that Springer pollutes the Television airwaves with his brand of refuse.

Sorry you weren’t able to make it Thursday Dolly really missed you and it was a really sparse showing for the group.

Hope they come up with a good replacement. Bringing back Glen Beck would be OK with me. But I have been listening to him anyway on Ashtabula 970.

Don't presume to lecture me about my freedoms.

It was a play on words.

Perhaps you should loosen your tight-butt a little before loosing your condescending yap.

Also, I was referring to it as a CLEAR CHANNEL syndication victory... NOT A/A.

If he was dropped by CC nationally ,THAT, would be a MAJOR blow for Left-Wing Radio; as they touted Springer as their front-runner.

Franken is an also ran.

Come Monday, the moaning and gnashing of teeth by the DU crowd will be unbearable.

Better post a suicide watch on them quick!

So was mine, ease up.

I'm looking forward to seeing what happens to AA New York 4-1-06. Losing Phoenix may be the least of the AA crowds worries.

YES!!!! Too bad I couldn't reach through the radio and strangle that idiot.

Now if they'd stop interrupting Rush to broadcast Indians pre-season baseball games.

Personally I don't think they like Rush much, they put something else on every chance they get.

Glen Beck is going to have a Field Day with this news...

I live in Cleveland and can't be happier that Springer is gone.
Glenn Beck was great. I loved his "Valentine Day's" program.

Just switch your dial to 640AM (WHLO - AKRON) for Rush when Indians are on.

1420 AM for Conservative talk radio as well.

Glen has been on 640 since Springer started on TAM. Beck starts at 10 after the War Room with Quinn and Rose.

I can pick up Quinn & Rose on my drive in to work, (but not very well), and I thought Beck was on WHLO after them, was not sure. I posted a statement from a googled search about Glenn Beck on 640, must have been old information~~~sorry about that!

FYI: Rush is on a two hour delay from 660AM out of Sandusky Michigan, sometimes NYNY radio overpowers the Michigan station.

I've also heard Beck say he doesn't like freepers.

He came here trying to pimp his website. It wasn't pretty.

Or try WJR (760-Detroit) - much more powerful station than WHLO.

If you are on the west side of Cleveland you can still hear Beck in the am on AM 930 WEOL.

Celebrating Springer getting dumped. He forced me off that station completely and I am on 1420 all day now. Bennett, Ingram, Medved, Paiger, etc.

Yeah, I made the jump to 930 A.M. as soon as Springer raised his ugly head.... I'll have to check 1420... I generally listen to Beck until noon and then switch back to 1100 A.M. when Rush comes on.

When they're not interrupting him for Indians baseball, at which time I have to go to 760 A.M. to pick him up... I think that's a Toledo channel.
