Liberals are in FULL MELTDOWN MODE with the loss of KPOJ 620 Portland OR (Randi Rhodes suddenly switched to U of Oregon hoops, a team coached by Moochelle’s brother) and now soon KPTK 1090 Seattle. Both stations have run liberal talk for several years.

The left leaning Blather Watch blog writes:
>>As numerous CBS Radio and Cumulus stations prepare to flip to sports talk in January, KPTK is just another victim of the companywide desire for affiliate stations. While consumers and the consumer press bemoan the proliferation of sports talk (“How many sports stations do we need in this market?”), the answer is that CBS Radio and Cumulus need to have affiliates in as many markets as possible to be able to sell a national sports talk product to national clients.”

All kinds of lefty blogs and messageboards are CONVINCED
in the case of KPOJ that it’s Clear Channel-Bain-Romney etc. in a big efford to silence liberal talk.

Guess what.
KPTK, now KFNQ is not owned by Clear Channel! They are owned by CBS!

Here in Wilmington NC our local talk station just switched from a local conservative and then Beck to Whoraldo and Colmes. Needless to say not listening to them anymore.

“1180 KLAY Lakewood/Tacoma will pick up the syndicated Ed Schulz and Stephanie Miller following...”

Think they’ll get all six of those listeners?

Liberals have no need for talk radio.

They have just proven that they can individually target 107 million Twitter users with the message that “your stupidest personal pet issue is our #1 priority and will receive our undivided attention”.

On the heels of Clear Channel dropping Liberal Talk from 620 KPOJ Portland in favor of Sports, CBS will follow suit at 1090 KPTK Seattle. As of today the station has changed call letters to KFNQ, with a likely branding of “The Fan” to match many of its CBS Radio brethren coming. SeaTacRadio.com is reporting that Talk 1180 KLAY Lakewood/Tacoma will pick up the syndicated Ed Schulz and Stephanie Miller

If Liberal Talk Radio can't succeed in the LIBERAL cities of Portland and Seattle, where can it succeed?

I guess we should ban Rush, Glen, Sean and Mark for FAIRNESS on their Portland and Seattle stations!
