Laura Ingraham?

SkittleKitty said...

Oo, captivagirl, that would be awesome.

Allison said...

Wendy Williams? Would NY be the second-biggest market in the country?

MontanaMarriott said...

I was thinking Wendy Williams since she has been having fights wtih her station and her talk show is taking off.

Liz said...

LA is the second biggest radio market in the country.

kvetro60 said...

I they he is talking about Dr. Laura. LA is the 2nd biggest market behind NY.

MontanaMarriott said...

If it is Dr. Laura, YAYYYYYY I hate that homophobic old dragon

nancer said...

i soooo want it to be laura ingraham.

kris said...

I think knowing WHY she's being dropped may be more interesting....

kvetro60 said...

Dr Laura used to be big in Philly, but she was replaced by Glenn Beck when 9/11 happened.

kvetro60 said...

Philly dropped Laura Ingraham too. She is based in Washington DC though so I don't think it's her. Sorry to disappoint you! :-)

Liz said...

I know it said "host" and not "DJ" but just to throw something different out there...what about Delilah?

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I hope with all my heart it's that psycho bitch Dr. Laura, although she seems to fit in perfectly at KFI (her home station).

kvetro60 said...

Hmmm, I never thought of her. I find her show boring so I never listen.

It's just me! said...

Delilah broadcasts from Washington and isn't even carried in L.A. Has to be Dr. Laura.

Miss Ramona said...

Please let it be Dr. Laura. By the way, for all her prattling on about family values, her mother was murdered in her apartment where she remained dead for many days before anyone found her. She had been estranged from the homophobe for years. Way to honor your 77 year old parent, Miss Gays are Bad and Ambitious Mothers are Worse.

I HATE Dr. Laura with a passion. I hope it's her and she crawls back into the hole she came out of.

I loved the West Wing episode that had a Dr. Laura type get ripped by the pres.

CarolMR said...

I love Laura Ingraham. I hope it's not her.

DNfromMN said...

They will never get rid of Delilah, her ratings are money.

rosie said...

I work in the radio biz, and while I have absolutely no inside scoop on this, my money is on Dr. Laura. She's one of the few we would consider A-list. And her ratings have been dropping off in recent years. I have worked with and met some total douchebags in my day, and I can tell you in all honesty, that Dr. Laura was NOT one of them. I completely expected her to be a total asshole diva when she did a market visit. I psyched myself up for weeks, preparing for a day from hell. She was the most low-maintenance national "talent" I've ever worked with (the only special request she made was that I tell her the location of the best bead shop in town.) She went over her alotted time at a client gathering so she could make sure to meet everyone, and then she even placed a personal phone call to me the next day to thank me for everything. As much as you may dislike her views, opinions or delivery on the radio, in person I can assure you she's a class act.

AnonMom said...

My initial thoughts were Dr. Laura, too.

jax said...

you can still be a narrowminded bitch with a smile on your face.
that's all i'm saying.

nancer said...

HAHAHA to jax.

Pookie said...

ita delilah is golden and solid. don't think anyone is getting rid of her anytime soon. *jumps on dr. laura train*

rosie said...

I gotcha Jax :-)

janele said...

I hate to ask, but who is this Delilah person? Does anyone know if she is played in the San Francisco Bay Area?

I've heard of Dr. Laura. So, my bet is on her.

d said...

I hope hope hope hope it's Dr. Laura, god I hate her narrow-minded rhetoric.

Squeezebox said...

Without a doubt "Dr." Laura. She's an infamously disagreeable bitch. Rosie may have caught her on a good day, but I've got tons of stories from persons who've worked with her or associated with her and what a royal, hypocritical, PITA she is. Including folks in the radio biz who talked about how she'd bring her kid into the station with her when he was little and let him run riot while she did her show. And a Jewish women's group in Dallas was absolutely appalled at what a demanding bitch she was when she made an appearance for them. When they wrote about it, she had an on-air meltdown. So many people have had ugly run-ins with her. A guy who owned a surf shop was harassed unmercifully by DL and her rabid fans after she decided some of his t-shirts were 'pornographic'.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Jade, That Girl said...

Sounds like Dr. Laura...

The only other person I can think of is Randi Rhodes, who is no way A List...

Jade, That Girl said...

Ah, and Rachel. But everyone loves Rachel. I love her more then Ellen, three times over.

LauraM said...

Please let it be Dr. Laura.
That would be way beyond awesome.

newsgrrl said...

When I used to drive alot to work I would end up listening to her program, this was pre-2000. I used it as background noise and she was no worse then than anyone else. I was surprised at her bio - she's a hypocrite to start and the fact she's no longer orthodox says some other unpleasant things. Haven't heard her since 1999. Don't think I am missing anything and from the buzz I hear... this is her.

Wryly said...

Dr. Laura is still around? I thought she left the air waves years ago. I hope it's her. Her stupidity needs to be silenced.

Karl said...

While it still could very well be Dr. Laura, did you notice how the blind is written. It doesn't say exactly that her flagship is in the 2nd largest market, it says she is getting dropped by her flagship AND the second biggest market. So it could be any major female radio host who is syndicated into the LA marketplace.

Still, Dr. Laura seems a likeyl suspect.

GladysKravitz said...

Oh please let it be "Doctor" Laura. Then her TV twin sister Ann Coulter can follow right after her, if there is any justice in the world.

not on my dollar said...

OT I just heard that Morgan Freeman had a 10 year affair with his stepdaughter who is now 27 which means he was screwing her at 17.

According to DListed he and his second wife raised the daughter of his first wife.


I am so sad and disappointed in Morgan. He was one of the few in Hollywood that still had my respect.

linnea said...

i saw that nomd - i just... i am speachless. I also had him pegged for a good guy.

zandra said...

Dr Laura, who cheated with a married man with 3 children, and he left his family for her.

Dr Laura, whose son is in the military, had photos up on his myspace about his drug use and sadistic things he wanted to do to Iraqi's if he was alone with them, he is one twisted puppy. He needs professional help after being raised by whatever "it" is. Horrible woman.

Mooshki said...

Ugh, whenever I channel-surf past Delilah I get a bit nauseated. Not my cup of tea!

chris said...

Dr Laura lives in Santa Barbara, and broadcasts from there each day, unless she is ont he road.

She used to write a column for the local SB paper and then quit- and the paper that she worked for owns a AM station that broadcasts her...

I agree she is hard to take sometimes..but I personally love her advice, now that I am a married mother of a 6 yr old.

She takes part in the Santa Barbara yacht club activites- she races boats every wednesday- her boat almost always comes in in the top 3. She rides a 3 wheeled harley around town- and plays pool at the local pool hall.

d said...

My second biggest complaint about Dr. Laura was a quote I read from her -- to paraphrase, "any 40-something woman should hang on to her husband no matter what, because at that age she isn't going to find another."

Please.

Pleasepleaseplease let it be "Dr." Laura.
