David Goldstein, the only local liberal in the Seattle talk radio market was laid off and his weekend show cancelled in January.
OK, OK, Dave Ross (KIRO m-f, 9a-12p) is a Democrat, but we hear constantly that he's a "moderate." Even if we count Dave: that would have made only two local liberals on the radio in Seattle, one of the most liberal cities on earth !
KIRO, to their great credit, has let Goldy fill-in for the iconic Ross this week and a few days next week. We're hoping that this is acknowledgment that not only can David can do it but that KIRO believes he has a voice that should be heard.
We'd like to see him back on the radie-yo. Wouldn't you?
David is still a relative novice to radio: as listeners, please comment: as a talk host, how he doing? What can he do better?
