Skip to comments.Vanity - Is Chris Plante done with WMAL?
Posted on 11/30/2012 9:12:20 AM PST by Perdogg
I heard that Austin Hill will be back next Monday after we were told that Chris Plante would return on Monday in the middle of the week.
Has Chris Plante been fired from WMAL, or is this more of a personal reason?
I would assume health problems also, but Monday’s podcast was pulled sometime after I downloaded it. Apparently, it was posted for only a short time before it was removed.
I listened to the podcast again last night and made the following comments on the Levin thread during a discussion of Plante:
Except for first 35 min, which I commented about in last post [post 76], he was fine. Not his best show, but other than first 35 min, witty and OK.
He says to caller, I am a little scatter-brained today.
Caller: You are repeating yourself a little bit.
Chris: Am I?
Later on, 1hr 38, he said, I gotta admit that I am a little spacy today. Im a little off today. I dont know why. A few days off; lost my usual razor-sharp edge.
I only noticed repeating himself in first 35 min and gave 2 reasons for why I thought that might be in the last post [see post 76].
He played the Jamie Foxx- and our Lord and Savior, Barack Obama- about 6-7 times. Did about 5 min on Obamas cult following.
When he was a no-show for Huckabee and then on his own program, I just assumed he was sick- virus, flu, etc - not uncommon after Thanksgiving (said he went to Chicago).
I hope thats all it is, but I am hard-pressed to figure out why this podcast was pulled.
Austin said CP will be back soon.
I’m going with a sickness of some kind, possibly a mini stroke since he was so disoriented on Monday repeating himself. I think that’s why they pulled Monday’s podcast.
Dunno, but I have everything needed to start it.
Give me 2-3mins.
Then I wasn’t imagining things when I heard the multiple repeats of Foxx proclaiming his savior. Yes, he seemed a bit off his game, but I was also listening intermittanly, thus not really sure.
“Then I wasnt imagining things when I heard the multiple repeats of Foxx proclaiming his savior.”
I heard that Youtube videos of the moment were being pulled, but I haven’t checked.

That is my take, as well. I’ve been worried sick about him for the past few days and pray he’ll be ok with some rest and proper medical care.
Wouldn't surprise me in the least.
CP was one of the major reason I advertised my company on WMAL this year. He’d been not be gone...again!

What’s your company?
not WMAL, I hope???
Ingraham Seeks WTNT Radio Lifeline
DCRTV hears that DC-based political talker Laura Ingraham (right) could soon return to the airwaves via a brokered deal with DC area talker WTNT, 730 AM/102.9 FM. Ingraham, who had been heard until early this week on WTNT, recently announced that she’s leaving her syndicator, TRN.
But, we’re told, she does not yet have another national radio distribution deal set up. Sources tell us that she’s been talking to Clear Channel’s Premiere and Cumulus.
That leaves her with the short-term possibility of buying time from WTNT and doing her show from its Fairfax studios, allowing her to at least be heard in the National Capital market. Ingraham could show up in the late morning slot at Metro Radio’s WTNT as soon as mid-December, we’re told.
FPF Training. Concealed carry, etc.
Things that make you go “HMMMMMMM.............”
Cool. Don’t worry about him being fired; he’s WAY too popular on that channel.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
The wierd thing is, that same day Rush and Mark Levin said they were repeating themselves.
