Conservative Radio Show Host Glenn Beck Dropped from NYC’s WOR 710 AM Due to "Poor Ratings"

Glenn Beck’s syndicated radio show dropped by New York City’s WOR (710 AM)due to poor ratings.

Glenn Beck’s show was dropped by New York City’s WOR (710 AM) due to poor ratings. Well, who would have thought that he had poor ratings in New York of all places. Are his “listeners” finally getting the message that he’s nothing more than an empty suit pushing vile untruths about anything he doesn’t agree with? According to the NY Daily News, WOR said said this morning it is dropping Beck’s syndicated show as of Jan. 17 and replacing him with a familiar New York name: Mike Gallagher.

“The reason is ratings,” said WOR program director Scott Lakefield. “Somewhat to our surprise, the show wasn’t getting what we wanted.”

Gallagher was a long-time host on WABC (770 AM) before he moved to national syndication several years ago. WOR general manager Jerry Crowley praised Gallagher as a New Yorker who will comment more on local issues than Beck. Source: NY Daily News

Oh well, all’s well that ends well. I’m sure his critics are pleased to see this turn of events. Let’s see if a similar occurrence will pop up at another station soon.

    Yeah right, ratings.  Or was he kicked off the air because he came perilously close to identifying who is behind Oz?  He put all the dots out there (to his credit), all it takes is half a brain to connect them.  But I think that’s asking too much these days.
