KPOJ AM 620 Portland Oregon - A progressive radio station has gone FOX Sports overnight after nearly ten years. The station was owned by Clear Channel and therefore has also been a Bain company since 2008. The last time I had checked, the station had good ratings and advertisers. The timing of this looks bad coming only days after the election, causing ZappoDave of Oregon to comment "Sounds like someone who likes to fire people".
Below the fold ...
One of the most missed shows will be Carl in the Mornings. A local show with the morning news and interviews with Oregon Politicians and more with wit and humor.
KGO San Francisco owned by another outfit - also went to other formatting this year after decades. It appears the West Coast is losing what little Liberal Radio that was out there. This is a sad day.

A Petition has been organized - Clear Channel suppresses progressive radio
Bernie Sanders often speaks of regulating Radio in a way that would give Liberal content a chance.
For now - It appears that Clear Channel/Bain Capitol have chosen that Radio has to be not 99 percent Conservative - but 100 percent.
