« BREAKING: Weiner wins legal battle, off the air for now, more time to swim naked | Main | Savage saga continues... Raconteur moves in »

September 28, 2012



Don't they have a back up plan?

Hedge Fund Hal

Dr. Bill is talking on kVI right now, in Savage's slot.

Hedge Fund Hal

i'm assuming Dr. Bill was the friday only guy and the real new guy will appear monday night, although i'd be fine if they went with Dr. Bill as the replacement.

Hedge Fund Hal

"male escort dog".....you think Savage cares about your little cheapshots?...hahahahaahh..this is a tough little monkey who triumphed over nasty. libber bullies on his own station (KGO) in his rookie days,less then twenty years ago, who were openly calling his show "Sewage Nation" on the air ....where are you now Chris Clark, you British bastard ?.... down the old garbage shute of history into talk radio's "black hole of obscurity"..aahahahahah.enjoy your 20 million dollar fortune, (all earned when he was well past 50 years old - a late bloomer) ,for a nice long break Savage, enjoy yourself, you've earned it.......thanks for the memories, Mike.....

Hedge Fund Hal

libber bully Bernie Ward, (currently at Lompoc,wrapping up the last two years of his six year prison sentence for downloading kiddie porn), another of Savage's tormenters from those early days on KGO ,once was tried out on a nationwide network weekend talk show for a brief period (a matter of months, i believe) in the late 90's.....1997, i believe.....the jackass made some comments after Princess Diana's death to the effect that the British government had her down away with,,,,oops, no more "weekends at Bernie's" show....the suits at the radio network tossed him on his ear....hahahhaahahaah


It will be delicious to see if Weiner can't get a contract after the shit he pulled Thursday, no station wants to be left in the lurch. He's 70, he may just pack it in.


Contracts aren't worth much anymore. Why should Savage be accountable for decisions he makes and contracts he signs.

I guess Savage doesn't dislike contract lawyers . . . but oh those tort lawyers. What a hypocrite.

Packing it in would do us all a favor.


I'm sure he loves the lawyers when it suits him. Tommy, any old geezer can start a show spewing hate at 50, but there is nothing to it. I would like to see someone at 50 suddenly become an artist who learns the guitar or writes. Weiner is no talent

Hedge Fund Hal

Savage does write. Try to keep up Preston. He wrote dozens of books about nutrition for 25 years, before the radio thing. Since then he has writen 4 or 5 books I think on politics,,and one novel, with 3 or 4 of the books N.Y Times best-sellers.. No one of any credibility would argue Savage has no talent, although they may dislike his views. You don't get your show on hundreds of stations with no or mediocre talent . hahahahahahaaah


Looking at wiki, I see his expertise is in botony and ethno-medicine. Too bad he didn't stick to it. He might be respected today. Instead, Andrew Weil has taken the lead in that area.

I didn't know Savage was fired from MSNBC after four months. At least he apologized for that one.

Reading about his early life, I can see how conflicted he is. He's had a lot of rejections. he wanted to be a Lenny Bruce. I feel kind of sorry for the guy. Seems like people who desperately want to be noticed and who are very smart eventually become compelled to get that attention any way they can.

Hahaha. A little psycho-analyzing for which I'm sure to be taken to task but I can see why he's so contemptuous of people who are more rational and calmer like liberals. He's simply compulsive - he's driven to get attention to himself. He's driven to prove that he's right about everything even if he has to do it by primitive methods.

Bob Nelson



Some of his stations like WRKO Boston have gone with Levin, y'hello!

Chris Chronic

Evidently, KVI is still scrambling as their website still has TBA in the 9-11p slot. We'll keep following this

Hedge Fund Hal- President, Idiot Savant /Dream15 Fund

Savage is back on KVI, from 9 to 12 midnight m-f. Big new contract with Cumulus. Much to the dismay of TomLeylis,now reduced to internet crackpot status (oh they wanted him back on radio after his CBS contract expired he claims, butwouldnt pony up more than one sixth to one fifth of his 3mill plus CBS paycheck. Leykis hatesSavagesguts and rants about him often.


Both those hosts are irrelevent and don't matter in the general scheme of radio. Dori Monson rules!

radio queen

I simply adore Savage and his savage ways. Jim Bohannon is scrumptious too!
