Conservative talk radio fades in California
The LA Times reports that the ranks of conservative talk show hosts are dwindling in California. While LA-based hosts Ken (Chiampou) and John (Kobyit) are still going strong on KFI with 670,000 listeners a week, the only other conservative hosts in the state drawing more than 100,000 are Doug McIntyre of KABC in Los Angeles, Lee Rodgers of KSFO (560) in San Francisco and Rick Roberts of KFMB (760) in San Diego, according to the LA Times. Casualties among conservative hosts include Melanie Morgan in San Francisco, Mark Larson in San Diego, Larry Elder and John Ziegler in Los Angeles and Phil Cowen and Mark Williams in Sacramento. However, two of the states conservative talkers, KFBK Sacramento's Tom Sullivan and KOGO San Diego's Roger Hedgecock are doing national shows now.
