CLEAR CHANNEL REPLACES SAN FRAN’S ONLY LIBERAL AM STATION WITH GLENN BECK

By Alex Seitz-Wald/Think progress


Radio giant Clear Channel Communications is removing San Francisco’s only progressive AM talk radio station from the band, replacing it with mostly conservative content like Glenn Beck and Fox News Radio. As Brad Blog reports, Green960-KKGN will now move to the “radio ghetto” of FM HD2, which requires listeners to have an HD radio. Clear Channel, which now happens to be owned by Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital, said in a press release announcing the move that they saw an opportunity to “expand our footprint in this crucial arena as we head into an election year.” Clear Channel is the nation’s largest radio network and the vast majority of their talk radio content — 86 percent, according to liberal talk radio host Bill Press — is conservative.


Motor City Liberal Comment: A right-wing talk station in San Francisco? A Republican couldn't get elected as the dude that cleans up road kill in that city. This is about ownership there are media markets all over the country where Republicans don't even bother campaigning in yet you'll find multiple right-wing talk stations in that market.
