Glenn Beck’s radio presence continues to shrink. As of today he is off the air in Los Angeles, the second biggest market in the country. KRLA 870AM bounced the schlock-jock in favor of Heidi Harris as they transition the channel to their new “The Answer” format. Since they didn’t provide the question, I’ll presume that it is: On what station is Glenn Beck’s conspiratorial, Messianic delusions too extreme even on a lineup of far-right blowhards?
A couple of weeks ago Beck was booted from KLIF in Dallas. That must have been a particularly sensitive ouster since Beck just moved to a suburb in the area and now does not have an affiliate in his new home town where he has also based all of his other Internet and business operations.
Add to this news that Beck lost his New York affiliate a few months ago so he now has no stations in three of the biggest markets in the country. And this is on top of his dropping from 3rd to 9th in the annual Heavy Hundred ranking from Talkers Magazine. Pretty soon you’ll only see him introducing Ted Nugent at county fairs and backyard Tea Parties. Anybody feel sorry for him yet?
