"The downturn at The Big 89 mirrors a nationwide trend among news/talk stations. Overall, the format has lost more than 10 percent of its audience since 2011 — and may have hit an all-time low this summer, according to industry reports. “The more you look around, the more talk radio . . . doesn’t seem to have either the cume reach or the share it once did,” Tom Taylor, radio’s most respected analyst, wrote in his newsletter Tuesday."

I never listen to talk radio. Ever. I'm sorry but I don't get it. The only thing worse than listening to talk radio is having to listen to TV commercials. Thank God for the mute button.

I like to be able to hear myself think. When I'm driving in traffic I have to be able to concentrate on what I'm doing.
