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.

LinkedIn profile for Jessica Gottesman says: "Air Talent at Sirius/XM Satellite Radio"


Radio-Info.com reports that Premiere Networks, which syndicates the Rush Limbaugh show, told its affiliate radio stations that they are suspending national advertising for two weeks.

Rush Limbaugh is normally provided to afflilates for free in return for running several minutes of national advertisements provided by Premiere each hour. These ads called “barter spots.” These spots are how Premiere makes its money off of Rush Limbaugh and other shows it syndicates.


He gives it away for free??? Doesn't that make him a...you know....SLUT???


She's still listed on the KIRO FM Website - http://mynorthwest.com/?sid=324899&nid=130

Wow, that’s an ‘ell of a list. I hear Limbaugh is so stressed he had to take a day off. Didn’t he have a heart attack awhile back?

Yeah I saw she was on the website. Wonder why?

Dark & Stormy

Jessica - we know you are watching. Please give us some dish.


That's a whole lot more than I wanted to know about Jessica Gottesman.


Gottesman does her own country music show on Sirius. no joke. i heard her say it.


Well, it's Tues and they have Ursula doing the news and they don't have any interactivity with her, nor do they mention Jessica's name.


On her last day, Ron and Don said "Jessica is moving across the street, so, good luck to her"
What's across the street?
I know there's an Azteca there.
Take that for what it's worth.

Where's Waldo?

somebody in the building told a friend they offered her a new contract with a 30-40% salary cut. She said "no thanks" and walked.


So she must be working at the Azteca asking, "Do you want chips with that?"


who is shocked? a little overqualified to be fawning and bantering alongside Dori's "great comedic skills". I don't think it was Monson's idea to have her in that role- either the suits decided to go back to the old school show, or Dori did pull an ultimatum. I really don't believe he likes the woman although he faked it pretty well. The Cornell law degree, Top tier radio market background, a bit intimidating for the little peckerwood.

Mr.'as his long, strange trip through  poverty nears its end"

Dori is a bit too "girly" for my tastes.

Vern's brother Vern

People still listen to Dori? Not snark. I just can't believe there is an actual 'market' for Dori's schtick. Last time I listened to the dude (w/ the girly name), I think I lasted less than 2 minutes. I heard his squeaky voice, ranting about some lame topic and I immediately knew, nothing had changed.

I mean, WTF, is he just encapable of change?

Side note: Does he still have a dog named Starr? ::snort::: now that was great radio. Stories about his dog. Oh and basketball. And playing flag football w/ his buddies. . Oh and I bet he still thinks the Gov of WA is a POS.

I haven't listened to him talk about Obama. Bet Dory thinks BO is a muslim, Kenyan, socialist, Nazi. I hope Dori didn't become a birther. But I can hear the old Dorster posing a thoughtful question about EXACTLY where BO was born.

Yeah, I'm real sure my time is best spent elsewhere.

Billy boy

Vern, is spending time bitching about people better time spent?


Yesterday Dori started flogging the "spring spheres" story from last year and I just changed the station.



I did the exact same thing when he came on with the spring spheres BS. At least KOMO was talking about something that was relevant.


Jessica should have paired with Dave or John Curley. I loved it when Jessica with Curley. sounded like they were having a good ol time.

Dori thinks he has the funniest show in town...big HA! i don't think so. Keep dreaming dori.

Miss Jessica I miss ya... you bring great news!

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber

    • 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

      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
