Operation Clear Channel

Well here in Northern California, there's no more commercialized progressive station with the end of KNEW(although I must say that they weren't 100% progressive). There are the small community stations like KPFA(not so small), KDVS(really small), and a few others. Sadly, I have come to realize that CC or CBS radio will provide any progressive talk. In Sacramento, as many of you know, there hasn't been any progressive talk station since April of 2008 when 1240 KSAC flipped to Gospel. The closest to us having a chance of getting back our progressive talk was when the Occupy Movement took place and they began an investigation into amount of airtime and what views were presented during any political discussions. Well, CC made sure that went down the drain when they said flat out, we don't want to fund another .6 share station. And CC is right because right-wing stations are the most in station formats who reported 'modified' ratings since 2008(Salon.com has good stuff on this). The only thing I think we can do in an inevitably tragic end to talk radio as a whole is to protest and start at the local level to bring progressive talk back, just like Portland, SF, LA, and even Houston. If you live in an area with no strong voice from the left, share your experience with your town's situation because maybe the different stories there is, the better the problem could be weakened, at least at the local level(community radio, independent ownership, etc.) .
