  • Talker's Magazine
    The quirky talk radio trade mag. Check the Talk Radio Research Project- it's not very scientific, but places on the top 15 talkers list (scroll down to Talk Radio Audiences By Size)) are as hotly contested as Emmys (and mean just about as much).

right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing
    Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.
  • Orbusmax
    inexhaustible Drudgery of NW conservative news
  • The Radio Equalizer
    prolific former Seattle KVI, KIRO talk host speaks authoritatively about radio.

Dori smokes?

snoutcounter

check todays date oh Blather reader

Seabeck

Next thing he'll post is that "The Buzz" 100.7FM is going all country.

joanie

He got me. :)

Justin Atheropinion

You are an evil man, Hood.

NPR usually does an apocryphal story on days like today...maybe something like "We'll never do another pledge drive again!"

Peter

From watching those furniture commercials with Dori, I'm not suprised he was a smoker--that probably accounted for his saggy hound dog looking face.

Sorry to hear Erin Hart has gotten out of radio. She would have gotten better ratings and recognition in a more reasonable time slot on kiro. She was a bit abrasive in pushing the liberal viewpoint, but strong liberal are lacking and very much needed on local radio. It's also crazy that she's out of a job at kiro when you've got such mediocre talents on the air such as Frank Shires and Bryan Stible--What entertainment value do they bring that Hart doesn't?

Ted Smith

You missed today's Really Big Story: Fisher is quitting broadcasting and going back into the flour business.

Peter: "Sorry to hear Erin Hart has gotten out of radio. She would have gotten better ratings and recognition in a more reasonable time slot on kiro."

True. It's not difficult to improve on her final ratings at kiro (0.0), ya know?

    pacific nw talk stations

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber
    • KIROFM 97.3
      Multi-format: news and nearly all local talk. This is where classic KIRO AM news talk radio went... hopefully, not to die. The home of Dave Ross & Luke Burbank, Dori Monson, Ron & Don, Frank Shiers, Bill Radke, Linda Thomas, Tony Miner and George Noory.
    • KUOW FM 94.9
      Seattle's foremost public radio news and talk.
    • KVI am 570 KHz
      Visit the burnt-out husk of one of the seminal right-wing talkers in all the land. Here's where once trilled the reactionary tones of Rush Limbaugh, John Carlson, Kirby Wilbur, Mike Siegel, Peter Weissbach, Floyd Brown, Dinky Donkey, and Bryan Suits. Now it's Top 40 hits from the '60's & '70's aimed at that diminishing crowd who still remembers them and can still hear.
    • KTTH am 770 KHz
      Right wing home of local, and a whole bunch of syndicated righties such as Glennn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Medved, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Lars Larsony, and for an hour a day: live & local David Boze.
    • KPTK am 1090 KHz
      Syndicated liberal talk. Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes, Norman Goldman fill in the large hole to the left on Northwest radio dial.
    • KLFE AM 1590 kHz
      Syndicated right-wing 2nd stringers like Mark Levin, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt inhabit this timid-voiced neighbor honker for your radio enjoyment (unless you're behind something large like Costco).
    • KOMOAM
      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
    • KKOL am 1300 KHz
      Once a rabid right-wing talker, except for Lou Dobbs, it's all business....
