Posted on 10/17/2012 10:27:38 AM PDT by raccoonradio
Less than three weeks after parting company with TRN Michael Savage will now be syndicated by Cumulus. His show, "The Savage Nation" will go live on Tuesday, October 23rd. Co-chief Operating Officer John Dickey said, As we aggressively create radios most compelling mix of show hosts the addition of Michael Savage is a milestone in our determined efforts to provide our listeners nationwide with the best programing in the business."
In late September, Savage said he would be off the air for "some time." according to his website. He posted a message on his website that said, "after a grueling legal battle that cost him and his family dearly, Michael Savage can announce he won." Savage filed a lawsuit against TRN in 2010 over his contract and says he is "now free to work with whomever he wishes in the radio industry from this day forward."
No terms huh?
The guy is 70 I doubt it’s a 10 year deal.
Via All Access:
>>The show will air 9p-midnight (ET).
(it was 6-9 ET/3-6 PT before. Jerry Doyle was placed into
his old slot by TRN)
Same time slot?
All access says 3 hours later: 9p-mid ET. Stations may not necessarily carry him in that slot.
Talk Radio Network gave his old 6-9ET/3-6p PT slot to
Jerry Doyle. Some stations like WRKO Boston opted for
He has never been a loyal employee and almost never a benevolent boss. —he generally treats people in the cold and horrible way his dad and professors treated him.
He’s a very passionate and talented BUM who ended up lucking out big-time with a great family of his own and a few very important lucky breaks.
1 micrometer to the left or right and this guy would have been floating in an ebb tide off Point Ross after an amazing fall.
If you think he’s REALLy a conservative then you’ve been hoodwinked.
Our radio provider is unhappy with how Michael left all his customers hanging in the wind. Considering it thoughtless of his fans/listeners.
All to say ... I doubt if the local station will subscribe to Michael's new show.
I am a fan of Michael Savage. I miss him. Most everyone when having success becomes full of their self. It is all about ego, money, power ,,, to heck with current listeners.
God bless Michael Savage's new endeavor.
9PM-Midnight is a death slot for talk hosts. Most AM stations are running at reduced power with reduced coverage at those hours. Some literally on flea power of a few watts.
Yes, 6-9 out west though. And in NYC Cumulus is buying an FM (WFME 94.7, from Harold Camping’s Family Radio). May wind up there but perhaps not for awhile
On Drudge there was an article about a 72 foot yacht capsizing near the Golden Gate bridge. The first thing I thought of was Savage.
After parting ways with his previous syndicator last month, Michael Savage has joined Cumulus Media Networks roster of talk personalities. Hell get a later timeslot with Cumulus slotting Savage in the 9pm-12midnight ET daypart. Savage had about 300 affiliates while at Talk Radio Networks, and Cumulus will now work to bring them onboard. —inside radio

Here in DC, the lineup on WMAL could or might be:
5-9 Morning Show
9-12 Chris Plante
.. and two C2C presidential, post-debate listener polls show Romney winning almost two-to-one.. so 12 years of anti-Bush shows like the one recently remembering the 9/11/2001 attacks with a show about how Bush and Cheney ordered the attacks (along with Saudi Arabia) has little effect on a large number of their listeners.
A conservative Savage would have more than half of the C2C listeners in no time.. he'd even beat Red Eye among listeners who like C2C stuff.
Thanks for posting!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE MICHAEL SAVAGE AND CUMULUS; A NEW POWER IN RADIO October 17, 2012 Cumulus Media Networks, with more than 4,000 affiliate radio stations reaching 121 million listeners, proudly announces Michael Savages The Savage Nation® will go live beginning Tuesday, October 23.
Evening, rather than drive time, but at least the Doc is back!
Yea, right......Hope he got a lucrative contract because his show was dropping later and later in AM local timeslots.
Then how will we know when the aliens invade
Then how will we know when the aliens invade
Yeah! I’m going to make it a point to seek him out again. I was listening to an old clip of his, mostly Robin of Berkeley speaking. He was doing one of his interviews where it sounded like it was edited later. I like when he interviews people, even if it is edited, because he lets the guest talk. Now, when are you going to be baaaaaaaaaack, the jogger?
Better ‘late’ than never!
Welcome back, Dr. Savage!
Then how will we know when the aliens invade
How do you know they haven’t already.....
That;’s what I get for not listening last night.
9 PM EST is good for me in the Philippines (10AM).
For those who want ANY program at your own preferred time.
DAR.fm is a great service for automatically recording any radio program, for playback whenever you like.
I use it for recording Rush, and I am now listening to today’s Rush as I type this.
"theories of a programmed reality, in which we may be living in a giant simulation"
I have long believed that we could be in our Creator's video game -- who is probably the equivalent of some 14-year-old nerd in a real world.
I think that C2C stuff interests Savage.. and he's good at tying things together in a stream of consciousness.
.. and it would make for a much more interesting show than what he has for lunch everyday.
Not much of a listener.
I have my bedside set on KFI LA and usually catch the first half hour. Hear what the show will include for that evening, but not much detail.
I will try and have to find him on the air next week.
At least I can listen to his show. I cannot listen to the radio at work, so I miss his show.
The other guy I like to listen to is Rush even though he is different than when he started out when he had all the various update theme songs.
In my old job I could listen to the radio, but I cannot in my current job.
Thanks for the heads-up!! We night owls will be there!!
I’ll be tuning in 8:49pm sharp!
Ok, great news, so far the only station that I know will immediately have Savage is KSFO, I can stream that live at 9pm est but does anyone know of a station that Savage is going to that will provide podcasts?
I need to podcast his show and listen the next day at an earlier time, maybe Dar.Fm is the way to go, is it complicated to use?
Can’t wait!!!!! Thanks for posting.
Good news. Cumulus is big. This move will instantly put Savage on hundreds of stations. Looking forward to it.
“Dar.Fm is the way to go, is it complicated to use?”
Dar is easy to use, and free for one program per day.
The show will be in tracks. One Rush takes up about 12 tracks
that play in succession.
If you get distracted, you can go back and click on that track, or start over.
I have exchanged a few emails with the guy that runs it.
He will help if you have any problems, or you can ask me.
For real time streaming of most any radio station, I use www.tunein.com It is also free.
Thanks, I just signed up, it looks easy enough but one question that doesn’t seem to be answered on the site. If a Savage show ends at 12 am est, how long will it take for it to be available to download to one’s Itunes player?
“If a Savage show ends at 12 am est, how long will it take for it to be available to download to ones Itunes player?”
Well, I am not sure. It may very well be instant, but I have not needed to know.
I have only Rush on my schedule, as he is on while I am asleep.
Savage will be on mid-day for me, so I will not usually need DAR for his program.
You should play around with the service and get to know it.
I guess we have a few more days before Savage is back.
Nice list, thanks.
There were stations that carries it delayed before he went off air. There will probably be some when he comes back.
Waiting to hear the official word. The following is from
Radio-Info.com; O&O means owned and operated of course.
Cumulus syndicates Batchelor (not sure of his fate?), Geraldo, Huckabee, and Mark Levin
>>Cumulus will want to put him on as many O&Os as possible so heres a rundown of what programming airs during the live broadcast time of Savages soon-to-be program. In San Francisco, O&Os KGO and KSFO air a local evening news show and its own syndicated John Batchelor program respectively; WABC, New York airs Batchelor; KABC, Los Angeles airs its own syndicated Mark Levin; WLS-AM, Chicago airs the last hour of Premieres Sean Hannity followed by Levin; WMAL, Washington airs Batchelor; WBAP-AM/FM, Dallas airs local host Chris Krok; and WJR, Detroit airs Mark Levin. With Savages program to debut next Tuesday, October 23, look for some programming changes on Cumulus Media O&O talk outlets.
Not sure about Bachelor show. From Wikipedia:
Under John Batchelor:
>>The future of Batchelor’s program was left uncertain when Cumulus Media (who acquired WABC in 2011) announced it had acquired the broadcast rights to The Savage Nation for air in Batchelor’s current time slot beginning October 23, 2012. Whether Batchelor will continue with the weekend edition of the program is unknown.
Under The Savage Nation:
>>The Savage Nation will be revived on Cumulus Media Networks on October 23, the day the non-compete clause expires. It will air in a new timeslot, 9:00 PM to 12:00 midnight Eastern time, replacing the weeknight edition of John Batchelor’s newsmagazine.
I am going to miss Batchelor and Gordon Chang reports of the goings on in the Far East especially Red China -- actually the show was a great source of economic and international news in general.
KSFO has been trumpeting "the most famous radio personality ever is returning to where it all began" -- or something like that.
I'll miss it.
Yes, AllAccess is reporting Savage to start 3 hours later than before.
I’m glad. I liked Savage as a way to wrap up the day without having to say that useless politicians’ phrase “at the end of the day.” I was also starting to miss The Savage Nation threads here in the afternoon.
Don’t know how able I will be, however, to catch the show at 6PM - 9PM Pacific and be online too. Just too much happening between traffic snarls, dinner, late night projects, etc. We shall see.
I wonder why he simply couldn’t have gotten his old timeslot back. It worked great for West Coast commuters and East Coast day-enders.
Here’s where I read of the “time change”:
