I'm a couple of weeks late on this, so just catching up: Michael Jackson's somewhat ballyhooed return to the L.A. radio waves ended when KGIL (AM 1260 and 540) dropped him. The station went to a syndicated package of mostly conservative shouters, including Laura Ingraham, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck and Lou Dobbs, plus Larry King and Dr. Drew Pinsky. Jackson comments on his site:
So I returned from cruising in Alaska only to read in the Los Angeles Times that my contract was not being renewed...Your letters of support and your calls to the station have been enormously encouraging. Remember it's "their" station, family owned, and if they wish to program it with syndicated, mostly far right wing talk shows, bless them and good luck. I hope to bounce back soon and when and where that happens, I'll shout it aloud. But, I really am missing Governor Palin, President Bush, Sen. John McCain and all the Wall Street stories we could be discussing together.
Michael Jackson returns, but not on KABC
