    Liberal talk doesn't generate ratings even in blue states. Look up "Air America".

    Just responding to the comment that it didn't exist. It does, on a college station from Bellevue.

    Thom Hartmann was also on a station in Lakewood, in the Tacoma area, for several years. KLAY 1180, now a Catholic station.

    I just listened to their first podcast. Were their ratings really that incredible at the time of being fired? How are the ratings in that daypart now? Is that info available?

    KIRO generated good ratings with numerous liberal talk hosts over the years. The rightward shift of the FM has been a fairly recent development in the station's history.

    The same could have been said about KGO/San Francisco in its heyday.

    They were pretty gracious to KIRO and Bonneville in particular. They offered constructive criticism. Didn't really answer the question of why they were fired though.

    But that was pre-PPM and pre-social media.
