Skip to comments.Black Conservative Host Larry Elder Exits KABC...does anybody care? (BARF ALERT!)
Posted on 12/14/2008 2:05:56 PM PST by EveningStar
...President/GM John Davison commented, "This will be a tough change for both of us because Larry has meant so much to KABC radio over the years. We part with KABC's respect, gratitude and best wishes for what we believe will be a very bright future given Larry's many talents." (translated: get out of the building, we need ratings)(laugh)

Previous threads on Larry leaving KABC:
Hopefully Larry winds up on XM where I can hear him.
Does anyone know what Larry will be doing now? Nothing (yet) on his site.
Please ping me with any Southern California related articles. Thank you!
If you want on or off this ping list, please FReepmail me.
Larry Elder is an excellent conservative voice. I wish him well.
i find it hard to believe that KABC has something better they could be putting on the air.
Take a look at the previous threads referenced in the post #1 comment.
You are apparently unfamiliar with his work.
I am unable to imagine any other reason that would make you say that about him.
He IS a conservative talk show host and is one of the better ones.
I would rather listen to him than Sean Hannity any day.
Does this mean that black conservative AM talk show hosts are treated worse than black conservative politicians?
I admit I’ve not heard of this guy, but I can be certain that if he was any good as a conservative talk show host, his race was a factor in his downfall. (IOW, In this case it seems that things would have went better if he was white).
Larry did the worst thing a Black American can do...he left the liberal plantation. That’s why he’s hated by the so-called Black establishment.
Larry was being all whiny on Thursday night....I hardly ever listen to him, but John and Ken were talking about poo transplants.
Didn’t Larry Elder coin the term “victicrat”?
Stopped listening to Hannity *years* ago. His naive political party cheer leading is enough to make one sick.
KABC now has the Dodger contract. They were bumping Larry’s program and I think that caused him to rethink his position at KABC.
If the Dodger contract to air their games on KABC is lucrative for KABC, I can see how they might reluctantly have to choose the Dodgers over Larry’s show.
Larry didn’t seem to be too upset about it, other than the realization of an era coming to an end. He’ll be picked up on another southland station IMO.
Larry Elder is a Black gentleman who gets it. He’s been spreading the good news about Conservatism for a long time, as a Libertarian. I did not listen to Larry all the time. When I did, I always enjoyed the program.
Larry Elder is a class act. He is invaluable because there are so few Blacks who do get it. Powell and Rice are two examples of why Larry is so important to the cause if we are ever to pull Blacks away from the Liberal/Socialist mindset.
I hate to see a guy get whiny when talking about his dead mother, reads a letter about saving someone from suicide, and leaves after 15 years. He should suck it up and be a real man like us.
Roger that, Capt.
I listened to the first half hour of his announcement. I like Larry. He had a way of addressing folks who didn’t agree with him, in a manner that would win people over rather than have them entrench in their previous position.
Did it get maudlin later?
I wonder where Larry Elder going end up at I hoping he go to KRLA or KFI
Larry Elder has penned some fine columns. I haven’t heard him on radio.
I get the most from Rush. Sometimes Boortz and Hannity have their high moments. I guess I like listening to Boortz more than to Hannity. Levin, who I’ve listened to through the internet, shines from time to time also. At Townhall.com one can get Hewitt, Prager, Bennett, and others. These are distinct individuals. I react both to their personality and their content. The newspeople at ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN are members of the liberal Borg (StarTrek not tennis) by comparison.
I’ve downloaded all the podcasts from Young Americans Foundation (YAF) - available from Townhall.com. YAF has very good speakers. With one speaker per podcast, there is a lot of variety and content.
I was talking about the fool who wrote the article. I’m very familiar with Larry’s work and I agree with your comparison with Hannity.
He was great on the radio. One of the very best hosts.
I think so.
That's what I think too. Larry was getting preempted by the Dodgers seven months of the year. I was saddened but not surprised by his announcement.
Your post is whiny
more of a beer post, I’d say.
Actually, Larry Elder was he station's libertarian. And unlike some other libertarians, tough on foreign policy.
I guess that in the Depression economy we're all socialists now.
I was referring to the author of the article. Larry is a great guy.
Yeah, that’s the breaks sometimes. KABC saw an opportunity and they ran with it. You can’t blame them. I’d like to see another station put him on at 12:00 noon so I could switch to him from Rush.
I heard Larry Elder, and also heard other conversative radio talk shows, during the 4 years we lived in Texas (02-07)and I loved his show, He was not easily bullied!
Thats ok just don’t drive
actually...He was very good (a real person), saw him on C-spam, a couple years ago....problem was his message/ideas were ignored...near L.A. South Central, MaxASSine Waters' district.
Assuming you were being sarcastic. Or else I’m coming over there and beat you up, in Larry’s honor. ;)
If you read what I was responding to you can figure it out.
Why would KABC fire a popular, conservative black talk show host when a socialist black man has just been elected to the presidency? They couldn’t ask for a better juxtaposition.
Like I said, I was probably listening to the last 20 minutes of Thursday night....I really didnt understand what he was talking about....but he did seem upset about stuff.
Thanks. I didn’t hear that part. At times like that it is easy to fall into a funk. You’ve got to try to avoid it if possible, keep it on an upbeat. Evidently he failed to do that.
As a San Fernando Valley resident, I’ll miss Larry.
Only “real” fiscal Conservative on the Air in LA during the day.
Even calls for privatizing education — Go, Larry. Education is an emergency situation, and public education is a DISASTER.
Anyway, I look forward to seeing him pop up somewhere else.
Sorry to be anti-sports, but — WHO CARES about the Dodgers! KABC is NOT a “sports talk” station, last time I looked. I complained bitterly about that change in “format,” this year — and did switch to other stations any time the boring bb game was “on the air”.
I think it hurt them with political news junky listeners...
Larry - MISS YA!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don’t like him being off the air. We’ll see how it goes. He should pop up again soon. I can certainly understand where you are coming from.
