Skip to comments.SHE'S BACK - Melanie Morgan on KSFO again! (Vanity)
Posted on 01/03/2012 7:25:43 AM PST by Baynative
Melanie Morgan, activice, patriot and talk show hostess is back on KSFO 5 - 9:00 AM PST
Good news! She always made this interesting and created a conservative drive that made politics interesting for me.
Mel was my favorite when I lived in the Bay Area.
What happened to Rush ? He starts at 9 AM PST.
What a nice surprise to get up and hear Melanie on the air this morning. She brings a nice energy to the show. I like Brian Sussman, but his show can get a bit dull at times.
ha, what a shock, another conservative woman, and she is a real looker too....
When did she leave? Where did she go? I remember seeing her at the 2003 recall rallies.
She’s on now for over another hour
Mark Levin is on with her now
She has been working with Free Republic since 2001

Monday, March 3rd, 2008 at 3:54 pm in Berkeley, General, Media.
Morgan the conservative radio talk show host who chairs Move America Forward, the group which has led efforts to shame and boycott Berkeley for its anti-U.S. Marine Corps recruiting stand has lost her job at KSFO 560 AM.
Morgan, 51, delivered her final broadcast there today after 14 years at the microphone, she says in a news release. KSFO owner Citadel Broadcasting decided not to renew her contract as part of the companys announced across-the-board financial cost cutting.
The ratings were terrific and I got to connect with a lot of passionate conservative casues, and Im really grateful for that, Morgan told me just now. I dont know whats going to happen to the show, I dont know whats going to happen to KSFO.
Shell not be bored, though. She said her e-mail is already overflowing with all kinds of very, very nice emails of support and work offers. I think Im not going to have very much time to grieve this job.
Among Morgans more incendiary moments: Of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, she said, Weve got a bulls-eye painted on her big, wide laughing eyes. Of New York Times editor Bill Keller, after the Times published a story on U.S. government tracking of terrorist funding, she said, If he were to be tried and convicted of treason, yes, I would have no problem with him being sent to the gas chamber.
Of billionaire financier and political contributor George Soros, after her co-host said Soros had cheerfully and willingly went to work for the Nazis, she said hed done so in order to further his own career.
She also helped launch and grow support for the 2003 gubernatorial recall, and rallied grassroots support to convince California to reverse itself and end use of the carcinogenic MTBE additive in gasoline.
Morgan started out as a television reporter for KGO TV in 1981. She worked at KGO radio from 1983 through 1990, then moved to Seattle for a time; she returned to the Bay Area in 1994 and went to work at KSFO. She has traveled to the Middle East twice to interview U.S. troops stationed in Iraq and Kuwait; her broadcast efforts from Iraq resulted in her winning the Associated Presss Mark Twain Journalism Award, and the Peninsula Press Clubs award for Best Interview or Talk Show.
They just announced that he is gone because of slacking ratings.
Our own homegrown Warrior Princess who makes being Conservative both cool and hot at the same time.
Just heard the news about Rush on KSFO.
Glad Mel’s back.
What I read was KSFO couldn’t afford him any longer, to bad they did have a good line up.
Here is from her website:

Coming Home (Again)
Written by Melanie Morgan Tuesday, 03 January 2012 00:00
Here we are in 2012. Barack Hussein Obama will meet his fate during the presidential election, and I am back on KSFO with my good friend Brian Sussman. Coincidence? I think not.
The Sussman, our KSFO crew and I plan big things for 2012, and we cant do them without you, our loyal listeners. Important safety tip for Obama: Read up on the recall of ex-Gov. Gray Davis, a liberal man in a state that has suffered many love affairs with liberal politicians.
Lets remind ourselves why we will work our derrieres off to defeat Obama this year. We know, dear listeners, that you are well-educated and you stay on top of the politics of destruction and the monsters - who usually sport a big-D after their names -who unleash their socialist plans on us.
Are you better off today than you were three years ago? If you answered yes, then you are probably an owner of Solyndra, the now bankrupt solar company that was quite cozy with the corrupt Obama. For review: Obama visited the solar company in a media blitz and touted it as a success. A short time later, Solyndra which had raised more than $1 billion from investors and got a half-billion dollar loan guarantee from the Obama Administration laid off 1,100 workers. (And we wonder why Californias unemployment rate has skyrocketed under Obama. Yet his cronies and he are getting richer).
This will not shock our brilliant listeners, but the entire Solyndra debacle (paid for with TAXPAYERS money) was driven by Obamas politics, according to an investigation by the liberal Washington Post.
Meant to create jobs and cut reliance on foreign oil, Obamas green-technology program was infused with politics at every level, The Washington Post found in an analysis of thousands of memos, company records and internal e-mails, according to the Washington Post.
Its the Chicago way, baby. So step aside or, as we will do at KSFO, stand RIGHT IN THEIR WAY!!!!!
Confused. this statement is on their web site: (OK what happened)
Monday - Friday: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Rush Limbaugh has been one of Talk radios most popular hosts since his coast-to-coast launch in 1988. Why? An engaging combination of charm, wit, intellect, and timing!
RUSH LIMBAUGH RENEWS CONTRACT WITH KSFO
Rush Limbaugh, Americas most-listened-to radio personality, will continue to be heard exclusively in the San Francisco Bay Area on KSFO. The station has entered into a new multi-year agreement with Limbaughs syndication company, Premiere Radio, to carry both his regular three-hour weekday program and his daily morning Rush Minute feature program.
I avoided the morning show when Mr. Lee Rodgers was kicked off the air for.. what? Being too mean to the Islamists (political Islam, sharia law and jihad advocates) killing Americans and others all over the world?
I knew Sussman was very good from listening to his evening show. I went back to mornings after a couple of months only to hear Sussman go after the self-described Communist caller -- enough already with that. Either fight the guy or shut up --- boring.
I must now give it another try.
I swear I saw AM910 list Limbaugh from 0900-1200 also. Rush is still on KSFO's schedule.
OV once said (when Ms Morgan was part of the show with him and Lee) that the show without her was like the Caldecott Tunnel -- two bores.
Good news bump!
Best news I’ve heard all year...
I heard rumors (maybe here) recently that Rush was moving to KNEW-910, as they are owned by his syndicator, Clear Channel. KSFO/KGO is now owned by someone else (brain fart at the moment, I forget who it is).
Missed all the big hoopla on the radio, as I start the work day at 0700, just when they were starting the real stuff and dumping Brian's hype. But if Mel's back in the early AM, all I can say is:
I'm getting some weird takeovers and echos sometimes, it's weird
Huzzah!! She’s one of the greats.
Just wish they hadn’t messed with their broadcast area. I haven’t been able to receive them for several years.
I had heard Mark’s show will be run later in the day.
I used to like Spencer Hughes -- he started at KSFO but lately he seems to have changed. I hope it is not him. But I've just heard him occasionally as a fill-in host.
Doubt it will be Spencer. He's got an afternoon show on Fox Satellite, and he took over for Dr. Bill Wattenburg on KGO recently.
Thanks for the ping. I’ve been following this all weekend and never suspected Mel would be the replacement. Sorry about OV, they canned the wrong guy.
Ann Coulter on now
As William F. Buckley said almost sixty years ago "stand athwart history and yell, stop."
“OV once said (when Ms Morgan was part of the show with him and Lee) that the show without her was like the Caldecott Tunnel — two bores.”
And he was right. I am very glad Mel is back. Suss can get swell-headed pretty easily. It’s not that he isn’t bright and hard working and all that, I just tire of him.
Ms Morgan is great! and Sussman is good. There goes the show. But that's the way it is.
I wonder if they told him before he came to work -- a know that Lee Rodgers didn't know that it was his last show until 08:59:59 (almost). And I remember Ms Morgan once learned that she was welcomed at work until her key/card/ID had been deleted and she could not get into the building like at 0400 hours.
Rush has moved to 910AM. Nothing to do with ratings.
Yeah. They did him dirty.
I remember the time when KSFO started carrying a L.A. show (John and Ken, I think it was) -- an immediate bomb.
I think he was only half kidding -- they all know the kind of business they are in.
And KSFO thinks JD can carry rating that Limbaugh wont...oh well.
Just looked at their line up, most of those people I have never heard of. Oh well, have 24/7 that works for me.
Looks like the steps a KSFO might have been the other high salaried shoe dropping since they're both owned by the same entity. Does that sound right to you???
What happened to Brian?
And they dropped Rush?
Brian’s still there, but he came up with some stupid story about OV moving to Montana.
Now OV is having to repeatedly tell people that that was a total lie, and he was fired. He’s still living in Crescent City.
AM 580 KMJ (Fresno)
AM 1530 KFBK (Sacramento)
It does take a good antenna.
RUSH was not on AM 560 (KSFO) this morning. RUSH owns AM Radio.
Good Hunting... from Varmint Al
They did several cross country tours to raise awareness of what our troops are doing for us, and raising money to send them things like beef jerky, coffee, silly string and other things to make them more comfortable and safe.
She now hosts, every year, a Troopathon to raise money for the troops.
Free Republic is always involved as can be seen by the photograph below the following link.
Here is a thread about the one in 2009.

Interesting that they would keep Ron Owens, arguably one of the most liberal hosts there.
I imagine, and hope, that Melanie negotiated a good contract, because she is worth it.
And now without Rush, they are probably saving some money.
I don’t buy it for one minute that Rush’s ratings were “slacking” on KSFO.
