Michael Savage is finally back in NYC and will be on the air for the first time in the nations capital.
As per WND Savage will be on both WABC and WMAL beginning Monday, 9 till 11.
“Savage does little to help the conservative cause as he’s too much of a lunatic”
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.
I wrote WMAL to tell them how I felt about this move.
WMAL listened before and brought Chris Plante back. Perhaps they’ll listen again.
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.
WMAL Ping: As per WND, Michael Savage starts on WMAL on Monday, Dec. 3rd from 9pm to 11pm.
Happy Holidays to Talk Radio and WMAL Fans!
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.
That poster was referring to Zero, not Levin.
Chris Plante is worth going out of your way for. If they are in the process of getting rid of him I'll be seriously pissed.
No, Groucho Marx will precede the one and only Michael Savage.

We in the media are supposed to be the watchdogs over government, not lapdogs, Savage said. Thats what freedom of speech and freedom of press entails.
Savage said that without harsh criticism, our politicians become immune to the people and behave like King George.
I take my role seriously and hope to continue to entertain and inform on WABC and WMAL, he said.
Savage ended his relationship with the Talk Radio Network in October, where The Savage Nation was the third most listened to radio talk show in the U.S. with more than 10 million weekly listeners. This year, the show became the No. 1 talk show on the Internet.
Savage said that while San Fransicko is his adopted home, New York City is still a sort of spiritual home to me my ancestors are buried there.
After many years on another station where I dominated ratings in my time slot, I am back on a much more powerful station, the venerable WABC, he said. Few know this: When I first began in New York City, I was carried on WABC and I beat the New York Yankees in the ratings!
Regarding WMAL, Savage said, What can be better than to try to keep the K Street gang somewhat responsive to the people?
He noted that hes never been heard in Washington, D.C., except for on a marginal station.
WMAL brings my voice into the consciousness, the geography of the geopolitical leadership, he said.
By 9p, I prefer John Batchelor who’s been on double shifts for the past few months. Savage @ 11p would be better IMO.
Savage Nation on WMAL, weekdays 9-11 pm.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
I for one am thankful - I could turn the radio off fast enough at 6pm to avoid his obnoxious voice and even more obnoxious demeanor. I’ve got Gerry Doyle back! Several year ago Doyle was replaced on my station my Hannity - knowing Doyle is coming up next I can actually last through the last 1/2 hour of Hannity’s self promotion every day.
Excellent! Now he’s starting to rebuild his network.
Not the first time he’s been on in DC. He used to be carried in his old time slot by WTNT, first on 570, then on 730.
WMAL is a much stronger, more desirable signal.
Write to your local station and call them.
WMAL is planning to run Batchelor after Savage. I don’t know WABC’s plan, although I’d guess it’s the same.
