WMAL 630AM ^ | 10.13.09

Posted on 10/13/2009 5:10:15 AM PDT by Perdogg

You spoke (man did you speak,) and we listened (finally!) We received thousands and thousands and thousands of emails, phone calls and letters... even a few smoke signals (OK, maybe not that last thing,) and they all said the same thing: WE... WANT... CHRIS!!

Thank God for second chances and persistent listeners like you.

Please join us in welcoming back a conservative’s conservative, Chris Plante to the 9am-noon slot, beginning Monday. He’s always insightful, often outspoken, frequently fearless and predictably unpredictable, but be forewarned... Chris hasn’t spoken in 6 months... he has a LOT to say.

Thanks for your patience. Please be sure to tell your friends that Chris is back on 630 WMAL. See ‘ya Monday morning at 9!

Grandy & Andy had Chris on this morning at 7:40, talking a little about this.

Good to see local talk coming back to WMAL, and nice to see Joe/Mika going away.

This is the best news I heard this Month :) Chris is again the best talker on Radio. Not as Famous as Rush but more consistent and coherent. His thoughts on current events need to be hear now more than ever.

Hurray ... I have been delaying my lunch breaks until after 12:00 noon here in the Peoples Republic of Maryland just so I wouldn’t have to listen to this guy and his sidekick.

Good to have a real conservative back in that time slot.

This has always been a downside to the nationally syndicated talk shows, no matter how much we might like many of them. They have put dozens, or even hundreds of local talk hosts out of work. Good to see one be brought back, even though I’d never heard of him, not living in the WMAL coverage area.

[My email this morning!]

Greetings!

As one of literally thousands of 630 WMAL listeners who expressed displeasure over the loss of Chris Plante, I am pleased to announce that YOUR VOICE HAS BEEN HEARD.

I know that the line “back by popular demand” is a bit over-used, but this time it’s TRUE. Back by popular demand, Chris Plante, 9am-noon on 630 WMAL, beginning Monday!!!.

Please join me in welcoming an always insightful, often outspoken, frequently fearless conservative crusader back to the microphone, but be forewarned…Chris hasn’t spoken in 6 months…he has a LOT to say.

You were persistent, passionate and, most important, you were right.

Thanks for your patience. Please be sure to tell your friends that Chris is back on 630 WMAL. See ‘ya Monday morning at 9!

Best regards,

Paul Duckworth
Operations Director
630 WMAL

Great news! I am always looking for decent early morning talk. I also like Lee Rodgers of KSFO, San Francisco. He was away with medical problems last year and tuned into Scarborough. What a joke he is.

We are out here in the middle of nowhere so the internet streaming stations are very welcome.

Thank Goodness, finally something to listen to before Rush. I can’t take Beck; and Laura has been getting on my nerves of late. I think it speaks to Chris’s appeal that people really wanted him back and fought this long for him!

I guess WMAL’s ratings tanked when they took Chris off and put Joe Blow on in his place.

Its about freakin’ time.

I’ve refused to listen to WMAl since he left. Any correspondence I got from the station told them so.

Yahoo, Yahoo, Yahoo!

Life as we knew it returns. We need Chris more than ever!

I just heard that this morning before I turned of the radio in anticipation of Scarborough's program at 10 a.m.!

That's great news.

I sent a thank you email to WMAL. Absolutely could NOT handle Joe/Mika. Had previously written, objecting to the change, now it appears enough of us have done that. So happy to see Chris coming back.

It was the least listenable show called “conservative talk radio” that has ever been broadcast.

Months back I sent a disapproving note to the program director and moved the dial. I’m guessing others did that and the Scarborough ratings sucked.

Very good news. I gave Scarborough a try over the summer. You know it’s bad when you end up listening to Diane Rehm on NPR instead.

"Morning Joe's" ratings haven't been so flashy either. This morning, it sure sounded like he was auditioning for a move to Fox when MSNBC cans him.
