Right-Wing Radio Host Looses Flagship Show


Michael Savage, the (in)famous right-wing radio host best known for his anti-immigrant, anti-gay, and anti-Muslim rants got dumped from what some bloggers are calling his “flagship radio station” in a decision that may have more to do with economics than ideology:

Let’s read between the lines. It’s not hard. Savage was expensive. Clear Channel, the owner, likes to save money. Savage, despite some popularity, has not helped the station climb out of 29th place in the local ratings.

Savage, the San Fransico Chronicle reports, has 8 to 10 million listeners on around 400 stations nationwide.
