When did she leave? Where did she go? I remember seeing her at the 2003 recall rallies.

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.
