Levin covers politics and “ stuff “ every day , 5 days a week for 3 hours a day . Levin’s audience is almost equal to Savage’s now . Apparently he doesn’t want to compete with Levin covering politics only . Recently , I don’t think Savage does much if any show prep . He shows up 3 times a week and doesn’t do a 3 hour live program . Realize he is 70 , but that’s no excuse for lousy show prep and the inane topics ( mainly about himself ) that he talks about sometimes . I’ll still listen on days when he shows up ( for now anyway ) , but I’m sure I speak for many when I say I am tired of tuning in only to hear “This is an encore ...” , or “ This is ( fill in name ) “ ...
I agree with your assessement of Savage.
It definitely impacts his affiliates. They probably lose many listeners when he is absent.
Several of the radio stations I used to listen to him on have dropped him for Mark Levin.
Savage is losing stations.
Maybe he doesn’t really care. Sometimes he seems more interested in writing novels.
No matter. I can easily click and load an alternative radio feed. I love the Internet!
The worst thing Savage does is his obvious “paid time” segments with decent people from think tanks or WND talking about whatever they pay to talk about, with Savage saying “interesting”, “really?”, or “what else should we know?” every few minutes. Unbearably dumb. I wonder how much he gets paid for those?
I’m completely addicted to Doc Savage. I’m hoping he’s just taking extra time off in the summer - he’s always talking about how nice it is in SanFran in summertime.
Also, he said something about doing a live stage show, maybe he’s prepping - he knows he’s getting an axe.
Clear Channel bought local radio stations in my area and fired everyone - Jay Severin, Mark Levin, Rush who got another station to pick him up.
It’s official, Babbin in tomorrow also.
Just said it 2 times as he signed off.
