Steven Colbert calls her "Ichabod Crane's banshee widow," and he likes her.
We're telling you: three hours a day of Laura Ingraham's scolding is more than enough -- an overdose in any market -- not to mention on a single station, every weekday. (Her toil and trouble bleeds over annoyingly into other stops at the bottom of the ayem dial).
But Fisher (KVI, KOMO, Star 101) suits in their finite wisdom have, have apparently decided to REPEAT Laura Ingraham in afternoon drive after playing her live in the 9 ta noon.
Either way it's lame, and demonstrates to us that KVI (and radio in general) is very, very low in Fisher priorities. Seems they're programming defensively: keeping only talent with contracts the company can't get out of. When these expensive agreements (Carlson, Schram, Suits) expire, will live and local radio be dead?
There's one rat left on the ship, that's Bryan Suits, (KVI m-f, 5-9a) wonder if he's ready to swim?
