Liberal Commercial Talk Radio Disappears in NY, LA, SF in 2014

Only NPR is left.

2014 will mark the beginning of a massive change for liberal talk radio across the country. In New York, WWRL 1600 AM will flip to Spanish-language music and talk, throwing Ed Schultz, Thom Hartmann, Randi Rhodes, and Alan Colmes off the air. In Los Angeles, KTLK 1150 will be dumping Stephanie Miller, Rhodes, Bill Press and David Cruz off the air in favor of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. In San Francisco, KNEW 960 will leave Miller, Hartmann, and Mike Malloy without a radio home in the market.

Thanks to radio consolidation and the secondary status of leftist talk in major markets across the country, the final death knell for liberal talkers could be tolling. Leftist talkers simply don’t have the same radio draw as conservatives; KTLK was ranked #41 in the market in November 2013, with WWRL registering almost no pulse at all. KNEW registered just an 0.4 in the San Francisco market in December 2013, placing it #31 in the market.

The failure of commercial leftist talk means that only government-sponsored NPR remains in many major markets.

:bigsilly:

Of course, the depressing counterweight is that liberals still manage to use the federal government as a underwriter of their political propaganda, via NPR.

They can always go to satellite radio. There are conservative radio stations on Sirius XM. Hannity, Mark Levin and Glenn Beck, is on SiriusXM PatriotConservative Talk.

Only if they can find someone who wants to carry them on satellite.

That would be Xirius XM, available in your car, handheld, over the net, etc.

They have carried Hannity, Levin, Larry Elder for years.

Do they provide all of the production facilities and equipment for free?

Also, why haven't they appeared on Sirius XM already?

You would have to ask the owners. Sirius is a publically owned company and have radio programmers.

True enough; my question was largely rhetorical.  It seems to me, however, that since Sirius is in business to make a profit, and will generally make available anyone who will generate more revenue than expense, their failure to include these liberal chatters is based on a determination that these liberal chatters simply aren't popular enough to justify giving them the use of scarce resources.

Sirius has enough channels(bandwith) to suit these people. They gave Howard Stern three channels and a large chunk of Sirius stock.Fox News has a channel so does CNN.NPR has a channel on Sirius.

They may have the resources, the question is whether they see it as worthwhile to let someone use those resources, which is a wholly different question.

I have 300 channels on my Sirius and they keep on adding new stuff every weekend. They even have a channel dedicated to disco music.

Could be simply a rights issue. Fox and CNN are both big enough to use multiple markets and take a small ad hit. Hannity, Levin and Stern - IIRC - owns their shows outright and can license it to whoever they want, as long as there is not a no-competition clause.

Disco is infinitely preferable to liberal chatter, IMHO.

XM has a "left" channel and another called "Potus" which leans left much of the time.

Also NPR, CNN, MSNBC, etc.

There is no shortage of overall programming on satellite.

Conservative has Fox News, Fox Business, Patriot.

Thanks to those satellites high in the sky, you can have SiriusXM Satellite Radio almost anywhere - within the 48 contiguous United States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico (with some limitations), hundreds of miles out into the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and the Great Lakes. Commercial free
