Another voice silenced
From WVKO radio in Columbus via Facebook:

Quote:IT IS WITH GREAT SADNESS I MUST INFORM WVKO'S LISTENERS THAT ONCE AGAIN, PROGRESSIVE TALK WILL BE SILENCED ON THE COLUMBUS AIRWAVES. OUR ONE-YEAR LEASE ON THE STATION IS ABOUT TO EXPIRE, AND AT THIS TIME THERE IS NO WAY THAT WE CAN CONTINUE OPERATING THE STATION. SO AS OF MIDNIGHT ON SUNDAY DECEMBER 16TH, THE NEW OPERATORS WILL BE AIRING A GOSPEL FORMAT ON WVKO. ONCE AGAIN, WE HAD A GOOD RUN WITH THE STATION, AND WE WERE HAPPY TO IN SOME SMALL WAY CONTRIBUTE TO THE SUCCESS THAT THE DEMOCRATS ENJOYED IN NOVEMBER. UNFORTUNATELY, IT WAS NOT A TWO-WAY STREET, AND LACK OF ADVERTISING SUPPORT FROM THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN ALL THE WAY DOWN TO LOCAL RACES ENSURED THAT WE WILL BE UNABLE TO CONTINUE INTO THE NEW YEAR. I PUT MY TIME, MONEY, HEART AND SOUL INTO DOING WHAT I BELIEVED TO BE INPORTANT FOR THE COUNTRY, BUT THOSE WHO BENEFITTED MOST FROM OUR EFFORTS CHOSE TO SPEND THEIR CAMPAIGN DOLLARS ELSEWHERE. FOOL ME ONCE, SHAME ON YOU, FOOL ME TWICE....WELL, WE CAN'T GET FOOLED AGAIN. ALSO, A NUMBER OF ADVERTISERS WHO SUPPORTED THE STATION IN THE PAST CHOSE TO TURN THEIR BACKS ON US THIS TIME. I CAN'T SAY WHY, SINCE THEY WOULD NOT RETURN OUR CALLS. I WANT TO THANK OUR ADVERTISERS, SUPPORTERS AND YOU THE LISTENERS FOR EVERYTHING, AND I HOPE THAT PROGRESSIVE TALK CAN SOMEHOW RETURN TO COLUMBUS IN THE FUTURE.

Apologies for the caps, that is exactly the way they posted the message.

RE: Another voice silenced
They will never silence the voice of progressives but they will make it as difficult as possible.
Satellite radio and the interwebs are ways to listen to progressives altho many still don't have access to these methods.

"I give thanks for this perfect day. Miracle will follow miracle and wonders will never cease."

There's nothing more reassuring then realizing the world is crazier than you are.

RE: Another voice silenced
Seattle is losing it's progressive radio station at the beginning of January. We will have yet another sports station. Feh!

Silence is consent.

RE: Another voice silenced
It's getting to the point that one has to listen to progressive talk using phone apps like TuneIn radio.

Confirmed, Fox "news" makes you stupid

The ones you are noticing are more terrified than anything else. They are lashing out because they are comfortable; and to acknowledge what is happening is a threat to that comfort. Ignore them, for they are not the voices that will rise in the coming days, months and years. They are not the voices of our collected humanity. They are the old voices of fear and impotence. - Anonymous

RE: Another voice silenced
Portland just lost its progressive station. They turned it over to sports too, iirc. Interesting.
