I wanted to post this on the Talkradio forum. I wasn’t successful. Any help?

I listened to him last night on some station out of Utah I think. I didn’t know he was back on the radio. I wish they would put him back on the local talk radio station here in northeastern Arizona. He cracks me up.

It will be interesting to see if Levin will make snide remarks about him on the same station. I like both of them, but they apparently don’t like each other.

Is that 9-11 AM or PM?

Chris Plante currently on WMAL 9-12 AM but has had a stand in this week who was very evasive(?) about when he would be back.

Two hrs is probably enough. He gets into some obscure topics sometimes, though. Often interesting and I don’t mind taking a break from politics occasionally.

p.m. -— looks like Savage is replacing Jon Bachelor. Gave me a start when I thought it was Plante. Not that I don’t regret Bachelor’s loss. He has excellent guests and presents an unique and informative view of the news and the world. A great loss if he gets forced off the air.

While I like listening to Savage, I do get a bit tired of
his hyper self-promotion, particularly with his book promotions, and continuous rehashing of his past.
There have been a few times lately when I have just clicked him off.
Am I being overcritical?

Me too!!! Eventually they will go after Plante. I keep holding my breath and praying for him.

Nevertheless, Bachelor is unique...with very insightful analysis and guests. Hope he can stay on the air. Podcast:

http://wabcradio.com/sectional.asp?id=33447

For example, excellent program on 11/26/12 (skip the fourth hour; it is a repeat of the 1st). I was particularly impressed with his discussion on China-—the Azores (an Atlantic base), disputed islands, and China’s new aircraft carrier. Where is one to pick up that kind of analysis in 7 minutes.

Austin __? sitting in for Chris this week.
On Monday he said he would be back sometime during week, Tuesday said couple of days and today said he would be finishing week....
That is usually the way these stations part company - WMAL ‘fired’ Plante once before and replaced him with Scarborough.

That should have gotten an exec or two canned....

Who is the conservative talker retiring in a week or so? Maybe Savage will land that gig?

Savage won his lawsuit against his syndicator, quit, found a new one and is coming back strong.

Laura Ingraham is off the air now, due to failure to come to an agreement with her syndicator.

Syndicators are killing the goose that lays the golden eggs. And the geese are going elsewhere.

I occasionally scroll into savage trying to find something interesting to listen to. Why is it, everytime I do he spends 14 minutes talking about what he had for dinner the night before and how it made him ill? Is he a food critic or a political commentator? I vote the former and turn it over to the FM side of the dial as I cannot stand the whiny uncle at thanksgiving complaining that the turkey is too dry and the wine is no good.

My local talk radio station that used to carry Savage and Ingraham, among others, got fed up with the turnover, I guess. When Ingraham didn’t renew, the station changed their format to some 24 hour news feed called “America’s News” that claims to be “news without an agenda.” From my perspctive, its bias lies quite a bit to the left of Fox and somewhat to the right of CNN. No agenda? B.S.

Now I’m bereft of talk radio for several hours/day until Rush comes on.

"Am I being overcritical?"

Nope. Savage does little to help the conservative cause as he's too much of a lunatic to taken seriously by anyone but those on the far right. Preaching to the choir (much like Hannity and most times Rush) does little to help conservatives.

“does little to help conservatives” could probably be stated as “does little to help the country”.

This is awful. WMAL made a very bad decision here, cutting back a very informative John Batchelor to insert two hours of mostly mindless ranting that's all over the political spectrum. Batchelor has great primary source reporting, especially on overseas news, that you won't hear from ANY news station, as well as excellent book reviews.
Another example of the dumbing down of America.

I agree. Batchelor, while annoying me with BCE instead of BC and AD (leftist plan to purge tradition and Christianity), he often has interesting guests. He’s on my radio now. Very glad, however, that WMAL moved from C2C to the conservative overnight hosts from Texas.

Bachelor is strange, but you are right. He had great guests, and I always learned stuff, and didn’t feel like I was getting played or yelled at.

Savage is either a firebrand or a clown. In either case, we will be poorer for this move.

He used to be on WTNT here in Washington, from 6-8. I guess that means Savage isn’t on that radio anymore.

________________________________________

Well, judging by the post here, it seems that every talker is bad.
I have been a Rush fan from prior to Dan’s Bake Sale days.
Rush and Savage are the only talkers that I go out of my way to listen to.
In this thread, I see all of the talkers being trashed.

This is more of a sign that America is crashing and will never be the country that I grew up in.
I am so thankful that I left ten years ago.

Bad news for you. It has nothing to do with WMAL, Savage is now being syndicated by Cumulus, they own WMAL and WABC and many other big talkers. It was not a WMAl move.

The only “talker” I saw being “trashed” here was Savage, unless you think some of those calling Levin “The Annointed One” were actually mocking him.

I guess the comment about Austin Hill could be seens as somewhat negative, although it was more pointing out that he was no Chris Plante.

>> Another example of the dumbing down of America. <<

I couldn’t agree more. And let’s just hope the nightly rants from Weiner/Savage will have distinctly short run on WMAL and WABC. Bring back John Bachelor!

In the meantime, my night-time radio listening may switch to Jason Lewis on WBT (1110 kHZ) — at least when he isn’t pre-empted by some Charlotte sports team.
