    Another nail in the coffin of AM radio.

    For years, sports talk was supposedly the only format that could get males in the money demos to listen to AM. Sounds like that’s not true any more, as almost all baby boomers – the last ones to have grown up with AM radio – are out of the money demos.

    It’s also sad to see the demise of an historic radio station. This was once the station which originated the Lone Ranger, the Green Hornet and Challenge of the Yukon (Sgt. Preston), a station whose alumni include Mike Wallace, Douglas Edwards and Danny Thomas. It was one of the earliest top 40 stations and was the prototype for other ABC top 40 stations with some legendary jocks including Mickey Schorr, Ed McKenzie, Fred Wolf, Lee Allen, Dave Prince and Joel Sebastian.

    Now it’s second and third tier right-wing talk shows, all automation – all the time. Coming next: Brokered programming.

    Good bye, Wixie.
