    Lee Rodgers, Rest in Peace Written by Melanie Morgan I really don't want to write about this, I don't want to think about this, and I don't want it to be true. Lee Rodgers, friend and mentor, is dead. I owe everything that I have in my professional life to Lee Rodgers, who took me under his wing back in 1988 in the halycon days of KGO Radio. Lee was a nighttime talk show host, a former rock and roll DJ, hired by my husband Jack Swanson. He hired him twice, in fact. "Lee Rodgers was a real radio guy....

    I can’t take credit for the title. I was getting ready for work last Tuesday morning at ‘O dark thirty’. I was listening to our local conservative blowtorch, KSFO 560 AM morning drive show, starring that great nemesis of the Greenie crowd, Brian Sussman. He was talking to an American citizen of Cuban descent whose parents escaped the wonderland of Castro’s communist Cuba. Brian asked him how to say ‘skinny’ in Spanish… and they came up with the gag-line Flaco Communisto. The rest is my own invention, especially apropos given the high regard our glorious leader obviously has for he,...

KSFO is the sister station of KGO radio. Attempts to reach station management were unsuccessful. On KSFO's web site, Rodgers is not listed on its weekday schedule, and an independent source close to the station, told me, via e-mail, that Rodgers "was out." It is not known why Rodgers was 'shown the door, although his hefty financial contract may have contributed to the sudden decision. His ex co-host, Melanie Morgan, left the...

    Former KSFO conservative talk radio co-host, provacateur and activist Melanie Morgan resigned from her nationally-syndicated radio show Monday for health reasons. We connected with Morgan Monday. She says "I'm fine," but wanted to return to the Bay Area from Washington, D.C. to be near family and friends as she continues to explore what she calls her "health challenge." In a note to listeners Monday, Morgan said, "Yes, it's true. I am leaving the radio. For a while." "I have resigned from America's Morning News with a tremendous amount of sadness," Morgan writes.

KNEW announced his departure on its Web site, with an unsigned note from a guy who looks like he's in management, or a character from the Sopranos. "Here's your no-spin direct answer; we have decided to go in a different philosophical and ideological direction, featuring more contemporary content and more local information.

    KSFO's "hot talk" radio morning radio hosts have been in hot water before for comments about the Muslim religion -- and this week, Bay Area broadcaster Brian Sussman appears to be at it again. This week's Monday 7-8 a.m. hour on the KSFO Morning Show was a real eyebrow-raiser, in which Sussman and his radio sidekick, Officer Vic, launched into a slapstick routine on Islam and its tenets. "Islamic finance is about living within your means and helping the needy -- unless they're Jews,'' he laughed. "The great honor qualities of that old time religion: honor killings, female circumcision, not...

I've been the target, as have a number of other conservative talk-radio hosts, of an effort by liberal bloggers to get me fired for engaging in what these far-left activists are calling "hate speech." The move by liberal activists to silence conservative radio hosts comes after the failure of the left-wing Air America radio network. Given that liberalism couldn't compete and win in the marketplace of ideas, liberals now want to silence conservative radio hosts. One anonymous online blogger compiled audio clips edited to make...

    The past few weeks the news media has been fixated on discussions of efforts by Democrats to either impeach or censure President Bush. Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., has made the push to censure President Bush for the administration's wiretapping of suspected terrorists. Meanwhile a group of activist liberals has launched ImpeachPAC, which is raising money to support congressional candidates who favor impeachment proceedings against Bush for taking the fight to the terrorists in Iraq. I have a better idea, how about censuring a president who has increasingly led an effort to undermine American foreign policy and who has embraced terrorist...

    My book was the first to make the claim that Russia was involved in moving Iraq's WMDs to Syria. After all the nay saying and criticizing I received for it, testimony at the Summit confirmed that this was true... The plan was drawn up after the Soviet Union decided to use its rogue state allies, specifically Libya and Iraq, to sponsor terrorism. The Soviets would help them make WMD in return, believing that would prevent Western retaliation. The head of the KGB, Yuri Andropov, told Pacepa that Russian advisors ran these countries intelligence services. Primakov was the central figure in...

In addition, several have at least indirect connections with liberal radio network Air America. And at the center of their fledgling 2006 candidacies, some are fighting off talk radio-related controversies. While relatively little attention has so far been paid to these hopefuls, that should change as political silly season shortly kicks off. A scorecard: ........................snip................

You be the judge. Featured on the website for the liberal radio network Air America Radio is an effort called "Fighting Dems" that targets Republican candidates for office. The idea of openly campaigning for Democrats is the raison d'etre of Air America Radio, which on a daily basis carries the water of Democrat politicians and liberal political causes alike. What really...

    ..... Never give in, never give up Posted: January 20, 2006 a.m. Eastern © 2006 WorldNetDaily.com The news out of Pakistan this week should come as a shot in the arm to Americans: the Bush administration continues to push forward in the war against terrorism on all fronts. After reportedly receiving a tip that al-Qaida's No. 2 man, Ayman al-Zawahiri, would be visiting a small Pakistani village, the U.S. military swung into action, firing missiles from an unmanned Predator drone aircraft at a terrorist compound in the village. At this time, intelligence analysts do not believe al-Zawahiri was hit. However,...

    How a lesbian, liberal Democrat turned Tookie's lights out Posted: December 16, 2005 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2005 WorldNetDaily.com It was a little after midnight as scores of pro-gang activists gathered in a vigil to honor their hero "Tookie" Williams. I was at this media group-grope at San Quentin prison. As reporters interviewed reporters, I stood watching and waiting for the inevitable nuttiness I knew was going to follow. Aware of the growing passion amongst those in the pro-Crips contingent, I decided to leave before any unruly mobs could materialize with their threats to run down anyone who didn't...

    The Radio Equalizer- Brian Maloney ^ | December 16th, 2005 | Brian Maloney
    Is talk radio really just an entertainment medium, or do listeners expect bona fide activism from air personalities? In the past, I'd always believed it was about appealing to a segment of the radio audience and primarily reflecting that group's political viewpoints. It's now clear, however, that faced with an increasing number of new media choices, talk radio listeners want quite a lot more. Simply being entertaining, timely and compelling isn't enough: led by the blogosphere, there's a sense that if the Internet can hold Dan Rather accountable, why can't talk radio? Blogs have raised the bar and hosts are...

BoreAmerica has the details, we'd like to hear the audio of this interview, if the host could please make it available. BoreAmerica also believes Janeane Garofalo has a promising future doing public service announcements, especially for booster seats. --- Lots of tension at ABC Radio, as worried staffers ponder who will be taking over some of America's largest talk radio stations (KGO, KSFO, WLS, WBAP, WABC, WMAL and...

    Rush Limbaugh has a penchant for putting his finger on the driving forces and central themes in contemporary American politics. And once again he's nailed it. I'm speaking of Mr. Limbaugh's repeated assertions of late that the Democrat Party has suffered a series of setbacks because they simply lack positive ideas on how to improve the lives of Americans. Instead, the Democrats have become the anti-party – being against anything proposed or advanced by President Bush or any other Republican politicians. It doesn't matter whether the dateline is Washington, D.C., or rural America – the party of Roosevelt and Kennedy...

    As you know, last week ABC executives removed me from the airwaves of KSFO 560 AM and the "Lee Rodgers & Melanie Morgan Show". I was deeply disappointed that despite the fact that our show was one of the highest rated morning programs in the Bay Area (one of the largest radio markets in the nation) that these ABC executives would act in such a manner. I cannot help but think they decided to punish me for my continued conservative activism. ABC also owns a liberal radio news/talk station in the San Francisco market and I find it hard to...

    Sackings are becoming routine at ABC Radio, where conservative morning show host Melanie Morgan has been yanked from San Francisco's KSFO-AM without warning. What happened? In a statement to Move America Forward supporters, an activist organization she heads, Morgan said she was unexpectedly asked to return her door access card Friday. After contract renegotiations between station management and her agent hit an impasse late in the week, Disney/ABC suits simply pulled the plug and kicked her out of Mickey's Front Street Mouse Pad. As word leaked out late in the weekend, some (such as SactoDan, here) wondered if it was...
