KLSD Dumped from AM 1360 by October 15th

Rumors that Clear Channel San Diego was going to drop KLSD progressive talk format from AM 1360 apparently are coming true. SDRadio.net is reporting today that Scott Tempesta (aka Scooter) who is the producer of the Stacy Taylor morning show was fired on Friday.[Link] All indications are "AM 1360 is preparing to shift programming, most likely Monday, Oct. 15. A new set of call letters are expected to used."[Link]

Despite the best efforts of activists to show their continued support for KLSD, it appears that AM 1360 will become an all sports station within the next couple of weeks. As for the progressive talk format and Air America radio here in San Diego, it doesn't appear that right now it is going to move to another station.

HA HA HA!!! I love the free market. It truly is efficient in eliminating waste, like the Liberal/Gay/Appeasement dribble that was coming out of that station! 1st KLiberalSD, next the Congress and the Presidency!!

has nothing to do with the free market. there are plenty of righty shows that lose money and are still on. Open your eyes. The only competition the right with likes is in a rigged game.

Scooter was great and I wish Cliff Albert would pardon him. (What was his crime??) KLSD is great. Stacy Taylor is great. A stronger signal would help a lot. I'm not going to be listening to a sports radio station, I'm going to find Air America on the internet.

The Rant on Saturday morning was a gas, and the Stacy Taylor show has been excellent - good combination of information, attitude, and humor. If the geniuses who run Clear Channel think that a sports station is going to be a hit, I think they are in for a surprise. The last all sports station in San Diego became a talk station if I'm not mistaken. This is really a loss for San Diego if it happens. On Saturday AM I will for sure be listening to Handel on the Law at KFI, not anything on KLSD.

KLSD sucks, scooter sucks, criag "snip it" elston sucks, why do you think nobody listens? I heard both sides, liberal and right wing. KLSD is nothing but gay appeasers, opioniated to agenda's that nobody wants, bush bashers, administration bashers, and approve of anything but the right and descent way to resolve any problem. No wonder their going off the air. And Stacy Taylor is a closet republican, dont be fooled and listen to Michael Savage, he's the real voice of America.
