Only about two dozen Air America affiliates were still running it, and moreover WSAI (AM 1360) in Cincinnati - a Clear Channel station - may decide to dump liberal talk entirely: [His] show and the station have...

Springer show "horrid", did "a lot of damage"

WPUL-AM 1590 (Daytona Beach, Florida) switched from gospel to "liberal" a year ago, but not the "Air America" brand of "liberal". Rather, they have a constellation of Jones Radio hosts as well as others: Bill Press, Stephanie Miller, Al Sharpton, The Tawana Brawley Show, Big Dumb Ed Schultz, etc. (A parenthetical note: yes, that Al...

Jerry Springer on Dancing with the Stars

In what is probably his cleanest, most reputable gig yet, Jerry Springer will be appearing on the show 'Dancing with the Stars' alongside Tucker Carlson and a host of other nobodies, also-rans, and no-talents. This is at least a more honorable gig than working on Air America Radio or - of course - shoveling... Keep reading >>>

Lady Bunny on Jerry Springer on Tookie Williams

"Lady Bunny" is a "Southern transvestite showgirl", and she informs us that on or about December 13, Jerry Springer: was advocating that state executions be broadcast on tv.

Jerry Springer offers advice for Dr. Phil

And, he did so on the Joe Scarborough Show. MSNBC headlines their report/transcript "Springer weighs in on issues facing Dr. Phil", which sounds like something you might read in a (just as a fr'instance) Indian or Filipino newspaper involving two national celebrities that you've never heard of. The surreality continues throughout: ...SCARBOROUGH: All of a... Keep reading >>>

Calling all Jerry Springer on the Radio fans!

"The Professor" from the blog of the "freeform" radio station WFMU describes "Air America's Next Big Mistake (part 2)". Obviously, he left out a few parts, but he recommends keeping both Rachel Maddow and Marc Maron, while trimming Jerry Springer's time or just buying him out completely. He also points out, as I have, that... Keep reading >>>

Jerry Springer and schizophrenia

Time to check in with Jerry Springer. Since there didn't appear to be anything of interest at springerontheradio.com, I decided to check out jerryspringer.com, a site that I'd never visited before.

The thoughtful side of Jerry Springer

Despite the title, "Taking out the trash" from the Chicago Tribune is a generally favorable portrait of America's favorite liberal. Grab a chair and check it out: ..."We did sophisticated polling and focus groups, and there's no question the show is a negative," [Dale Butland, Springer's political spokesman] says.

Eclipse Ramblings informs the world that two unspecified Air America hosts on an unspecified AAR station don't know the difference between an Uzi and an AK-47: "To make such nonsensical statements, the on-air "personalities" at Err America have to be woefully ignorant or are knowingly telling lies. Either one is not good." On the other... Keep reading >>>
