I listened to the beginning of their first time back on the air Thursday morning.. I've listened just one time to their show, that was when the mayor was trying to get them kicked off the air and they set up outside city hall to do their show. Here's one radio industry report that comports with what I heard about their suspension.
"GETTY said that their absence was 'never about what was said on the air,' and that management has 'made it clear' that the hosts can say whatever they want. The reason for their absence, they said, was an internal matter and that they have been asked [by management] not to talk about it"
If anyone is interested here's why I think that it could have been threats from Islamists and it is no wonder that Dr. Savage is so concerned about security.
I knew about the following and have no problem believing the Islamism connection.
Here copied directly from the American Spectator source code are Lee's and more firings
Management of San Francisco talk-radio powerhouse KSFO-AM says the firing of longtime morning show host Lee Rodgers was the result of a failed contract negotiation, but Jane Jamison suggests other motives:
What is most worrisome for the conservative movement is the unspoken reason behind the KSFO firings: It appears that the station ownership, Citadel Broadcasting, led by CEO Farid Suleiman, may be "bowing" to complaints from liberal activists and Muslim sympathizers. Rodgers would rant about "Mooslims" and radical Islam on his show, and he frequently mentioned that the Council on American Islamic Relations was complaining about his views.
Other talk-radio hosts have complained about pressure from CAIR. Michael Graham blamed CAIR for his 2005 firing from Washington's WMAL. The Tanzanian-born Suleiman's role at Citadel Broadcasting has been controversial. KSFO's firing of popular host Melanie Morgan two years ago was widely criticized by conservatives.
