  •  WalkerTMJ is also the home of the Packers (10+ / 0-)

    Brewers, and Badgers. Every car in the state has am620 programmed on their radio.

    This means that everyone in the state at some point or another has heard the RW hatemongering.

    Any new progressive radio station will be a David vs Goliath  because they won't have the sports teams.  I can't count the number of time I was listening to the ball game one day only to turn the car on the next to hear Sykes or Belling spew lie after li just because I left the radio station on the same channel.

    •  Both WTMJ and WISN radio (4+ / 0-)

      have high power signals heard all over SE Wisconsin so they reach a very, very large audience.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

        very common associations with the racism of limbaugh, for instance?

        for universities the global 24/7 global warming denial required from all RW radio stations should be enough to break those contracts ASAP. their mission statements need to be taken more seriously- they are essentially requiring their students who are following athletics to listen to RW radio stations.

        in madison the giant limbaugh station and walker supporter WIBA is the badger station!

        thanks for the great diary- the call in was fantastic and a very rare event on radio. warms my heart....

        US universities contradict their mission statements and endorse climate denial, racism, sexism, and partisan lying by broadcasting sports on Limbaugh radio stations.

      cutting. how can pro athletes accept the racism on the limbaugh stations?

      and how can any university associate with it? the racism, global warming denial, sexism, teacher bashing, lies....

      our unis need to be pressured to cut those contracts ASAP and find alternatives.
