Another Liberal talk radio host bites the dust.
So why does Liberal talk radio fail so miserably? Why does it suck so bad? Why do people shy away from liberal talking points like the plague? Maybe because it’s nothing but negative, pessimistic, un-analytical, cynical, un-informed, pointless ranting drivel that drives people away in droves.
People can only take so much of people speaking their “hearts and minds” and not actually discussing history, politics, principles, and important issues that concern most Americans.
Instead, they can’t get off the Bush-hating bandwagon, they can’t get off the “I have no rights anymore” bandwagon, they can’t get off the “republicans hate all blacks, hispanics and gays” bandwagon. These people are so transparent and the American people know it and are showing their discontent by not listening.
Just weeks after claiming she would reshape her faltering radio program to focus on a New York City audience, Whoopi Goldberg has now been cancelled even there.
According to press and trade reports today, Wake Up With Whoopi was yanked from WKTU-FM today without warning, other than a brief note sent to staffers mere hours before the change. Poor ratings were cited by the station.
Recently, after similar results led to terminations in Chicago and Philly, your Radio Equalizer speculated that Whoopi’s radio days appeared numbered. Now, one can easily expect the syndicated program to be shut down, perhaps in the next few days.
And this from the NY Daily news:
After almost 16 months of only modest listenership, Whoopi Goldberg’s morning radio show has been canceled by WKTU (103.5 FM). A memo circulated to the WKTU staff late yesterday said the station will stop carrying Goldberg’s nationally syndicated show as of this morning. Launched on July 31, 2006, the radio show was intended to be a less strident alternative to “shock jock” and Morning Zoo radio.
But it never found a big audience and didn’t crack the top 10 in New York.
