Even the great Lionel could not save Obama 1260, as the only "progressive" station in the Washington DC area is shutting down (link). Formerly yclept WWRC, the station was renamed after the Leader but even that couldn't save it from a ratings disaster. Those ratings collapsed to a level so low it couldn't be measured.
In fact, not even the combined mega-talents of Bill Press, Stephanie Miller, Ed Schultz, Lionel, Rachel Maddow, Ron Reagan, and Richard Greene could save the valiant "liberals" fighting against the entire DC power structure's Right Wing Ways.
Meanwhile, ratings went the exact other way at WTNT and doubled, a conservative talk station owned by the same consortium (including Redskins owner Dan Snyder). In an apparent attempt at self-inflicting a wound, Obama1260's program director is going to move Ed Schultz to WTNT.
