Goldy has cancelled the Governor's appearance on his show, Sunday.
He was laid off today in KIRO's Black Wednesday Massacre, January 30, 2008.
(He's the last live & local liberal on Seattle talk radio, (unless you count Dave Ross, who most consider a moderate).
Read Goldy's depressing announcement here.
They'll be gloating from the right -- he's an activist who has a loud and influential voice in the region's political conversation. But many were surprised at the tonme of his show: it was more an ardent, rabbinical dinner table discussion than the edgy outrageousness of his blog, Horsesass.org.
We were surprised. Why, after KIRO just launched their new website; hired a "new media" director, would they fire the guy who has inarguably the most influential blogger in the region?
And in a presidential election year -- traditional ratings bonanzas for talk radio?
There are more firings today at KIRO. We'll report them to you as soon as we get them; and have much, much more to say about the dumbing down of this great station.
