Good news! She always made this interesting and created a conservative drive that made politics interesting for me.

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.

(From 2008)Melanie Morgan canned from KSFO

By Josh Richman
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 company’s announced across-the-board financial cost cutting.

“The ratings were terrific and I got to connect with a lot of passionate conservative casues, and I’m really grateful for that,” Morgan told me just now. “I don’t know what’s going to happen to the show, I don’t know what’s going to happen to KSFO.”

She’ll 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 I’m not going to have very much time to grieve this job.”

Among Morgan’s more incendiary moments: Of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, she said, “We’ve got a bull’s-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 he’d 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 Press’s Mark Twain Journalism Award, and the Peninsula Press Club’s award for Best Interview or Talk Show.

Thanks for posting that, Baynative.

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 can’t 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.

Let’s 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 California’s 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 Obama’s politics, according to an investigation by the liberal Washington Post.

“Meant to create jobs and cut reliance on foreign oil, Obama’s 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.

It’s the Chicago way, baby. So step aside or, as we will do at KSFO, stand RIGHT IN THEIR WAY!!!!!

Rush Limbaugh
Monday - Friday: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Rush Limbaugh has been one of Talk radio’s 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, America’s 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 Limbaugh’s syndication company, Premiere Radio, to carry both his regular three-hour weekday program and his daily morning “Rush Minute” feature program.

Thanks! That's good to know.

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.

They just announced that he is gone because of slacking ratings.

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:

YEE-HAH!

Brian Sussman and Lee Rodgers before him were good, but they got so single-mindedly intense at times that I would have to shut them off a bit to decompress. Mel can be just as driven, but she always seems to know when to back off the fire and have a chuckle to balance.

The replacement at 0900 will be? Mark Williams?

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.

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.

OV was fired?

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.

Well as long as J.D Hayworth is moving to the Bay Area -- at least to the extent that his interest will be local to the Bay Area -- it should work out.

I remember the time when KSFO started carrying a L.A. show (John and Ken, I think it was) -- an immediate bomb.

Yes it was. I remember though when Ms Morgan was let go OV's first comment as it was revealed that she was let go was, "Can I have her parking space?"

I think he was only half kidding -- they all know the kind of business they are in.

I heard about 3 weeks ago that everybody at KGO was fired except Ron Owens because their parent company was having problems and the Salaries were way too high. As you know, this is KSFO's sister station (the call letter deficient station).

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???

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.

From Bethel Island, CA about 10 miles east of Antioch, I can get Rush on the following:

AM 580 KMJ (Fresno)

AM 910

AM 1360

AM 1530 KFBK (Sacramento)

It does take a good antenna.

RUSH was not on AM 560 (KSFO) this morning. RUSH owns AM Radio.

For years Melanie was Chairman of Move America Forward, which supplies essentials to the troop serving in the Mideast.

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.

I do know that the reason that Melanie was fired before was because of her value, which they didn't want to pay for anymore. And also because they were purging conservativeness as much as they could.

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.

After she was fired from KSFO, Morgan moved to Washington, DC, to co-host the then-new America's Morning News with John McCaslin. She spent a year doing that show (heard on KSFO from 3:00-5:00am), and then left due to health issues (thyroid cancer). She moved back to CA at that time.
