Savage Gets Axed From Flagship Station
Conservative talk radio host Michael Savage has been canceled from his flagship station in San Francisco, KNEW.
“We have decided to go in a different philosophical and ideological direction, featuring more contemporary content and more local information,” KNEW programming director John Scott said in a press statement. “The Savage Nation does not fit into that vision.”
Savage is being replaced by talk duo John and Ken, in an effort to make the station “more contemporary” and “more local,” said Scott.
Savage wound up on KNEW after being unceremoniously dumped by rival San Francisco conservative talker KSFO several years ago. Savage is currently the third most popular syndicated talk radio show in America.
In addition to having ripped off The Right Perspective host Frank from Queens‘ phrase, “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder,” Savage was recently banned from visiting Great Britain for things he has said on his show.
It is unknown where Savage will call home at this point.
