Radio Silence: Major Stations Set to Dump Michael Savage

Courtesy WMD.com    Dec 18 2018

Talk-radio host Michael Savage’s long-time nationally syndicated show is about to go dark in major markets, including New York City, despite high ratings, according to his lawyer.

“Michael’s voice, unlike [his conservative competitors] has always been very independent,” Horowitz said. “Savage is completely a wild card, right? And that’s what they’re trying to kill. It’s all about corporate control. Taking him off the air is not a business decision.”

“It makes no sense. I have a loyal, large audience. Why not at least do reruns at night?”

The Times noted WABC recently issued a news release indicating Savage will move to a new format, with one hour of radio alongside one hour of podcast.

But Horowitz said he’s seen emails between Savage and WABC officials indicating “The Savage Nation” will end its run on the station Jan. 7.

Horowitz said stations in Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington, D.C., also will drop the program.

Sounds like “advertiser boycott syndrome”. Number 2 in as many days.

The so-called “Progressives” have not read their history.

The pendulum swings one way……

Then it swings the other. Every. Single. Time.

I am patiently waiting.

Oh nothing to worry about as another independent free thinker gets removed for the weasel Ben Shapiro. 2019 is going to be a great year as Trump takes the gloves off and exposes the corruption. Of course MSM followers will be told not to believe these conspiracy theories but eventually critical thinking may return to them.
