    KGO which is basically the affiliated liberal side of the same KSFO – KGO radio family (“sister stations”) is in the middle of massive firings and shakeups. KGO changed their format a long while back, the stalwart of liberal talk didn’t work and their ratings dropped, with the exception of course of the longtime KGO talk host Ronn Owens who does have a dedicated audience and instead he has now moved over to KSFO taking Mark Levin’s slot. Mark Levin has been taken off his current live 3pm to 6pm slot, and instead for now put into a “red hear”...

    KSFO Morning Show with Sussman and Green ^ | 30 Janurary 2015 | KSFO Morning Show
    One of the best 30-or-so minutes on radio since I've been listening beginning in the early 1940s. One caller and one scheduled guest. KSFO Morning Show Podcast It's a four hour show. Pick the 30 January hour 0500 - 0600. The caller (27:30) is a military Afghanistan vet who explains the Taliban in concise and precise language. (Hint: there are two kinds of 'em.) The scheduled guest Jan Morgan (36:20) owns a shooting range in Arkansas who will not permit Muslims as customers. She describes an incident when she did permit 'em but no more.

    At the beginning of 2014, Clear Channel moved Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity to their then Liberal Talk stations in Los Angeles and San Francisco and rebranded them as Conservative Talk “The Patriot“ The San Francisco version won’t make it past nine months. Cumulus Media has announced that the trio of shows will move from “960 The Patriot” KNEW San Francisco to their 560 KSFO on Monday, September 28. KSFO was Limbaugh’s longtime affiliate in San Francisco until Clear Channel moved him first to 910 in January 2012 and later 960. While Rush will stay in his live 9am-12pm timeslot...

    If you listen to terrestrial radio, and live in the San Francisco Bay Area, north of San Jose, you most likely have heard of KSFO AM. Last weekend, the managers of that radio station decided to fire weekend talk host Barbara Simpson suddenly and for most listeners shocklingly. Barbara was affiliated with that station for over nineteen years, since it's inception as a conservative leaning radio station. This was a few years after Rush Limbaugh show everyone that conservatives could appeal to a large portion of the population. Some local blogs, such as richlieberman 415media have been flooded with posters...

    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,...

    Veteran KSFO morning personality, Lee Rodgers, has been let go at the Citadel-owned, right-wing talk station, it has now been confirmed. Weeknight host, Brian Sussman will replace Rodgers. 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. "I have some health issues that I need...

    After more than 15 years of slime, race-baiting, misogeny and shameless self-promotion, Michael Savage is off the air in his hometown market, San Francisco. 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. The Savage Nation does not fit into that vision." Let's read between the lines. It's not hard. Savage was expensive. Clear Channel, the owner,...

    My local station KSFO has not reported on the tea party 1 hour and 40 minutes into the broadcast.  At least not that I heard.I drive about an hour beginning at 6:00am every morning and I usually listen to KSFO on the road.  You would think that something this important, on which they have reported for the last week, even having a past host one yesterday to discuss that they would talk about.Well, I heard a blip at the beginning of the show and after that Nada, Zip, Nothing.  In fact, they began the 7:00am hour talking about Obama and...

    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...
