(latest radio ratings in Boston):
WBZ holds first place with a 7.3.
Conservative talker WRKO up slightly, from a 4.1 to a 4.3, for sixth place overall.
Conservative WTKK-FM turns in a flat performance and ranks 10th.
Air America's two Boston stations disappear from the radar screen, that's right, they are no-shows. Blame the signal quality all you want, but they were getting at least some ratings before. Even major free publicity from the Boston Globe didn't help one bit. Can't wait to hear the lame excuses. Bet the Globers won't be dwelling on this news.

Air America is bombing big time in liberal Boston. After truly horrible ratings for the last couple ratings periods, the latest one has them _not showing up at all_! This despite more than a few plugs in the Boston Globe and Boston Herald (more than a few articles plugging Stephanie Miller's remote in Beantown). Tons of liberals in the Hub, and their reaction to Scare America is a big thumbs down! Soros' money is well spent!
I wonder if they'll take the Spinal Tap defense; there the manager said Boston wasn't a big college town; I guess Al Franken (whose ugly mug is plastered on cab roofs here) will explain that "Boston's not a big liberal town".
The site for these statios (http://www.bostonsprogressivetalk.com ) has a video link
from SeeBS-owned WBZ-TV, plugging Stephanie Miller and Air America. "Well, now liberals are fighting for their chance to bend your ear", says the newscaster. Hello! Like they don't already have CBS, CNN, PBS, NPR...???
Funny how Demmies have had control of local school districts for decades, yet they continually bitch about no money going to the schools, thus we've created this awful school system which they control, yet it's not their fault.
Liberal ideas do not survive a medium that allows for feedback.
BTW -- Boston has TWO Air America stations? Is that city really that big ???
It supposedly needs two--WXKS is in Medford, about 5.8 miles north of Boston, while WKOX is in Framingham, about 20 miles
west of downtown. Supposedly both signals needed because of
signal weakness, especially after dark, though they seem
pretty powerful to me--especially within the Rt 128 belt where
many people, especially libs, live.
It's not like either station is out in the boonies. Yet it can't get even mediocre ratings in Kennedyland.
WXKS went to liberal talk radio? Is that FM 107.5 or FM 107.9? I grew up in Medford in the 1970's and WXKS was the hot disco station in those days.
Just think, disco is better than liberal talk radio. Who wouldda thunk it ???
Oh no, you're thinking of WXKS FM 107.9, "Kiss 108", which is still a music station...
The Scare America affiliate based in
Medford is the _AM_ side, WXKS (AM) 1430 which used to be "standards/Music of Your Life" (and got half decent ratings...). Both stations broadcast from studios near
the Wellington Circle "T" stop of course!
