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

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Is linda thomas the new KIROFM morning voice? :

"Thomas won't face a tough learning curve- he’s been filling in"..... Of course, "he" is a "she." i hope this was an honest error, Blathernaut.

NoBS

I think she would be great. Webcams please KIRO!

Cyn

jeez, i stopped getting up with KIRO news when i couldn't pick it up in the bathroom any more. Good luck Linda, though.

wild bill

THE EXCELLENT, NEWS/TALK LEADER DOES HAVE EXCELLENT STATE-OF-THE ART WEB CAMS,,,,KIRO MUST GET THE 710 FREQUENCY BACK,,THE WHISPY FM GHOST OF A SIGNAL IS A CHALLENGE. I LOVES ME KIRO, GIVE ME A SIGNAL!

NoBS

Wild Bill -- I haven't noticed their use of webcams in the morning. Thought that started with Ross. At an rate, I'd watch. I agree with you KIRO's FM signal is weak in my south Sound neighborhood.

WILD BILL

KIRO MUST GET THE BLOWTORCH BACK!!!!Time will not improve the hilly, tree lined terrain. This ain't DC, flat and bulldozed for miles n miles....Bonneville, you fucked up, breath deep and fix it, for THE LISTENERS! or do we matter? I stand corrected on the AM Web Cam, the sheen from Hersholt's forehead is creating a challenge, but some lighting pros from ILM are looking at it.

Laura Riker

Hey Wild Bill, whats with the upper case tirade? 34L?

joanie

Love the news that nobody can get the damn station anymore. They just don't seem to get it . . . unless, of course, they like losing money.

Are they losing money?

Headhunter

No one knows their tax situation so one can hardly determine if they are losing $money in the long run and total picture scenario. We can (& do) only comment on superflous opinions about KIRO.

RobP

Just as I predicted in the "Jane Shannon fired from KIRO" thread - there's Linda stepping in right away.

You can be pretty sure she's not getting what Jane was being paid, however.

Jim

What difference does it make? Jane's not getting paid what she was making either for that matter. Linda will add a lot to that show. KIROs news needs a shot in the arm.

Mysterion

KIRO-FM continues their new coverage dominance this morning. When I heard about the murder of four Lakewood Police officers, I tuned to KIRO-FM to hear what was going on. Did I find out? No. The football game was on. They should have oushed the Seahawks over to 710AM and done some of that news coverage they're always bragging about.

AuthenticAndrew

Even CNN is giving the Lakewood shooting prominant coverage. To say local media has dropped the ball would be a huge understatment.

Ben

Linda, do you have a sister named Karen? Did you have an aunt Sally?

Just wondering is you were my cousin Linda...Ben

    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....
