Can you point out the high rating syndicated host that is liberal in the market to counter Rush?
Add up WLS, WIND. WCPT is nowhere close to them. Add on unrated WCGO and indirect competitor Salem AM1160. WSRC and WGN might lean liberal but they never identify and position themselves in production as Blue. Where WIND and WLS are not ashamed to position themselves as the Red voice not 100% hardcore super serving conservative listeners.
Refer to what I said in my last post: WLS main reason is to clear Rush in the market. They pay big bucks for stations to carry him. They do not live and die on ratings, they are already PAID to clear the programming
Like I said, highly unlikely Steve would show up on WLS. We see how "Non Right" Dahl ended up on there.
The old school days for Brandmeir, Matthews, Dahl, Cochran, Eddie & JoBo are long gone. Radio has changed, the pay is no longer there, people listen elsewhere. Eddie has reinvented himself and still works in radio. Mancow is reaching the end of the rainbow and opportunities. When WGN fades off being sold or succuming to the bird and paid ads, Sirrot will be over too. Doubt that? What other station would he fit in today?

Can you point out the high rating syndicated host that is liberal in the market to counter Rush?They do not exist. Liberals and Left leaning do not flock radio as Conervatives and Right leaning do. It is a well known fact in radio, those people consume elsewhere. That is why WCPT (besides having no strong talent and being majority on the bird) is not a ratings getter and why Air America failed. If "Left" radio was indicative of "Blue" where is the big Blue radio in NYC? SF? LA?
