Short bit of news here from Denver.
Yet another of Clear Channel’s Liberal Talk stations is dropping the format.
“AM 760″ KKZN Thornton/Denver is next in line to shift to another Talk variation following similar moves in recent months at sister stations in Portland and Los Angeles. Morning host Gloria Neal posted on Facebook that she had been fired as the station would be changing formats. With Randi Rhodes ending her syndicated show next week the station is losing two of its shows.
Greg Foster, VP/Programming for Clear Channel Denver confirmed to the Denver Post that Neal was let go.“I can confirm that Gloria Neal’s show is no longer on KKZN and she is no longer with our company. We will be announcing new programming for KKZN in the near future.”Read more at: http://radioinsight.com/...
Here's how the scam works.
Clear Channel wants to kill a progressive radio station, but oh, the ratings are too good, and just axing it would cause protests.
So they got rid of David Sirota a couple of years ago, and replaced him with Gloria Neal. Gloria means well, but she doesn't have nearly the talent of Sirota, or his predecessor Jay Marvin. So the morning show languishes, the ratings start to drop, and lo and behold, Clear Channel is so, so sorry, but they're converting the station to a new format.
Business talk. Excuse me while I puke.
Fuck you, Clear Channel.
