#44 Talk Radio in the age of Trump

Donald Trump was re-elected to a 2nd term as President this past Friday after the Mueller Report said there will be no more indictments coming down.

I know that writing this will generate some negative comments. But that is what you will hear across the radio dial tomorrow from conservative talk radio stations. The glee will be nauseating if you’re not a Trump fan. But make no mistake about it, there shall be gloating.

I was involved with Talk Radio for the better part of my career and I understand the beast which I helped unleash. Conservative Talk Radio is a clubhouse for like minded people. The demographics run across all spectrums – poor, affluent, uneducated, educated, etc with one thing in common: fear that their way of life is threatened by the left. Conservative Talk Radio hosts understand this fear and they do a fabulous job feeding the appetites of their constituency.

So tomorrow, if you want to free yourself of hours worth of listening to Rush, Sean, etc, here’s what you’ll miss.

🎶Nah nah nah nah nah nah… we were right, they were wrong, nah nah nah nah nah nah🎶

And in other news….

  1. You’re correct, of course. It’s too bad more stations don’t make room for dissenting opinions…but the job IS to “play the hits.”

    I guess my question would be: when does the definition of “The Hits” change? Or does it?
