Memphis Talk Radio Cuts Beck, Savage and more!
Oh this is good...posted at

From the AM600 radio website:

What about those programming changes?

I want to clear up some misinformation about the planned programming changes on WREC. First, let me say that Andrew Clarksenior has done a great job with the afternoon show. <snip>
....Unfortunately, that move did not produce the audience growth we all expected.

Here is a rundown of the new schedule:

Our audience has indicated that they prefer a morning news format over a talk show in the 8:00 a.m. hour. Starting Monday, Memphis Morning News will continue until 9:00 a.m., preempting Glenn Beck's first hour.

There are no changes to the Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity broadcasts.

New to the 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. shift is nationally syndicated, conservative talk host, Schnitt. Schnitt is a very bright guy, is well informed and gives a fresh perspective on politics and events of the day. <snip>

I'm a big fan of Michael Savage, but his ratings have floundered in recent years. Given that, we will now carry The Wall Street Journal's Daily Wrap from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The Daily Wrap is talk radio from one of the most-respected brands in media, The Wall Street Journal. <snip> more than 2,000 reporters and editors from The Wall Street Journal.

None of us like change to our daily routine but I hope you will soon find that you are enjoying the new lineup.



P.S. - No, the liberals are not taking over!

This is very interesting in conservative Memphis TN!!!!

1. Not so much.
The suburbs of Memphis are truly conservative, but not the inner city itself. The fact that Limbaugh, Hannity and others remain without a progressive counterpunch is not encouraging at all for Memphians that are not conservative. That's why I think equal time should be demanded in a new Fairness Doctrine. But that's just me.

2. That is one thing I love about the internet tubes.
I moved to Tucson recently from the S.F. Bay area. Although Tucon has a fairly progressive radio station, I spend most of the day streaming Green 960 out of S.F. or, occasionally KGO also from SF. Gotta say though, Tucson NPR rocks.
