Posted on 02/24/2012 12:08:22 AM PST by raccoonradio
Cumulus Media has dropped Coast To Coast AM with George Noory from multiple markets and replaced it with its own Red Eye Radio.
Among the stations that have dropped the program are 770 KKOB & 1050 KTBL Albuquerque, 1290 WNBF Binghamton, 890 WLS Chicago, 710 KCMO Kansas City, 630 WPRO/99.7 WEAN Providence, 980 WAAV Wilmington NC, and 630/105.9 WMAL Washington DC. In two of the markets, the program has already found a new home as it is picked up by Clear Channels 920 WHJJ Providence and Sea-Comms Big Talker 93.7 WNTB/106.3 WLTT Wilmington NC.
For now Coast To Coast remains on a few Cumulus stations including 560 KSFO San Francisco and 570 KLIF Dallas, although the latter is no longer listed on the shows affiliate page.
Many Clear Channel talk stations (like WXKS 1200 Boston) carry the Premiere stable of hosts including Beck, Rush, Hannity, Bill Cunningham, and Coast to Coast. In Prov. RI Coast to Coast has moved from WPRO 630 to WHJJ 920, as WPRO now picks up Red Eye.
Is Coast to Coast losing audience or what?
I still remember the chills I got listening to that one show about Skin Walker Ranch. Coasttocoast is a great show for some mindless listening in the dead of night. I haven’t listened to Coast for awhile though, since some of the episodes had been dang boring. Is it possible that Coast2coast isn’t performing well?
I still remembered Noory carrying the hopeychangey water for Obama back in 2007 and it was annoying. He’s Halloween broadcasts were great but weekly..meh. It’s like Jim Rome’s show. When you start begging your “drones” to like you on your Facebook page, you’re in trouble..
I want Art Bell back!
The “two guys” (Eric Harley and Gary McNamara) are actually pretty good—genuine conservatives, quite articulate.
Ah yes, I do remember that, and his liberal leanings were never lost on me. I never listened to Noory for politics though, just for laughs and ghost stories.
I’ve always wondered why Rush doesn’t do midnight to 3am rebroadcasts. It’s not like he’d lose noon audience with something on the opposite end of the clock.
I listen to them (Midnight Radio Network) on occasion on WJR 760-Detroit.
A top notch program!
My uncle who is a retired trucker says he listened to him and Art Bell when he would do overnight longhauls, if the city he drove thru carried his shows. He caught the Roswell UFO show many years ago and he was coincidentally, passing the highway leading up to Area 51 and it was past midnight..
This move may lower the ‘energy level’ of Coast to Coast.
Mmmmm yes, THAT right there is what makes it fun.
Cumulus Media is apparently controlled by the alien invaders, trying to silence the only outlet for the truth.
More commercials than content...
I listen to C2C nightly or it is at least playing in the background as I go to sleep.
Over the last 6 months or so, the show has taken on sort of a Beck-onian Dark Side. Oddly reminiscent of things said earlier in the day or week on daytime talk. Years ago it would have been considered crazy conspiracy talk, but it now seems on pace with current events.
I often have thought...word is getting out, even to the crazy overnight nuts, that our world is very close to being turned upside-down.
Of course last night I fell asleep listening to a guest discuss the ‘shift’ of consciousness that is coming and the awakening that is happening. All couched in Arab Spring and OWS as the agitation of the ‘spirit.’ This was the first guest interview that I have heard actually tagging the movements to the ethereal realms. The guest didn't preach to join these movements, just noted them as evidence of a spiritual upheaval. She spoke of 51 golden cities worldwide and 5 here in the US. Areas we should start moving towards for ‘safety.’ I can think of a daytime host that just last year had a discussion with his audience about ‘moving to safety.’
Which if you listen to Beck at all, the upheaval is marketed as good vs. evil....and it is time to choose.
I listen to WMAL - used to love CTC on it, but WMAL cut it down to 3 hours [1-3 am], with the balance of the show repeated the next night between 11 pm-1 am. However, I could not listen between 11 pm-1 am.
At 3 am, Midnight Trucking [now Red Eye] came on and I like it too. But, it was only 2 hours long - also being cut off [but the balance was not repeated the next night].
So, something had to give. On the whole, if I had to choose one show for the full time - it would be Red Eye [which is what WMAL is now doing 1 am-5 am].
I sometimes listen to Kook to Kook during my daytime here.
On occasion they have something of interest, but when they are into the paranormal/UFO junk, I tune out.
If I had to stay up past midnight to hear it, I never would.
I can see why long haul truckers listen...It is all they have past midnight.
I understand that Noorey is an Obot, so he is obviously a simpleton.
Eric and Gary are quite good as conservative commentators, but I’m a bit miffed by their show because I believe the title to it is misleading. There is nothing “trucking” about their show at all other than advertisements for Shell diesel grade motor oil. If you want to listen to a real “midnight trucking” show, the Truck’n Bozo(Summers) on 700 WLW out of Cincinnati, OH and on satellite radio is much better. Summers is also a conservative and unlike Eric and Gary, he actually regularly covers issues relating to the trucking industry.
