Lets Make Change.

Franken Replaces Limbaugh

Yesterday, the Battleboro Reformer reported that a local radio station would exchange thier right wing show lineup for the more highly demanded left wing programing of Air America Radio (Launched March 2003). The switch came after several locals called in requesting a change in programing. The audiance had shifted since the station was incorperated to a more liberal one.

These requests snet the station into high gear as the replaced the Rush Limbaugh Show, Bill O’Reilly’s Radio Factor, the Howie Carr Show, the Clark Howard Show and the Lars Larson Show. With the Al Franken Show, the Ed Schultz Show, Unfiltered News with Rachel Maddow, the Majority Report with Janeane Garafalo and Sam Seider and the Randi Rhodes Show. Alan Colmes will round out the new lineup with a news-based program.

Air America has gained 41 affiliates and 2 satalite contracts since its start in March of ’03. So much for a failing idea.

  1. To bad six months from now they will be changing back. I am not sure why, but Liberal talk radio does not seem to do well. I think it is due to most liberals I know being more into High-Tech, and the Internet, than Talk radio. But we shall see. Even though I don’t agree with much they have to say, I will find it interesting to be able to have an opposing view presented for a change, as Talk radio has long been dominated by the Right. It is always a good thing when Americians are presented with BOTH sides of any issue, and are then able to draw their own conclusions, instead of the ones pushed at them from the fringes of Right and the Left!

  2. A commenter said: “Even though I don’t agree with much they have to say, I will find it interesting to be able to have an opposing view presented for a change.” “An opposing view presented FOR A CHANGE”? Come now. It’s the conservative view that is being presented for a change. Those of us on the right have had to endure the likes of CBS, ABC, NBC, the New York Times, ad nauseum, masquerading as objective news for decades. Rush Limbaugh and Fox News and Matt Drudge ARE the change we’ve been waiting for. It’s time for the Liberal Media to move over.

  3. Are you kidding me?!!? Your talking about the same media who has convinced the public that there were WMD’s in Iraq that Iraq had to do with 9/11 that Kerry is a flip flopper, that Gore invented the internet and more. Not to mention the thousands of lies and blunders of the Bush admin that the media failed to report. Liberal media my ass. Tell me one right wing story the “left wing media” didn’t report. ONE LIE THE BUSH ADMIN FEED THEM THAT THEY REJECTED! I am big on this topic so if you want I can come up with at least twenty more examples if you want, with statistics.
