Obama Radio crashes and burns in DC

posted at 9:58 am on February 2, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

The cult of personality appears to have ebbed a bit since Barack Obama had to begin governing two weeks ago.  The Washington DC radio station calling itself Obama 1260 and featuring liberal talk stalwarts Bill Press, Ed Schultz, and Stephanie Miller has given up the ghost already, a victim of undetectable ratings.  Howard Kurtz notes that not all political radio has that problem:

President Obama may be riding high in Washington, but OBAMA 1260 is not.

The area’s only progressive talk station is changing formats, dropping such syndicated liberal hosts as Ed Schultz, Stephanie Miller and Bill Press in favor of financial news, starting next week.

The move by Redskins owner Dan Snyder, who purchased the station, WWRC, and others in Washington last summer, leaves the city without a liberal radio outlet. Program Director Greg Tantum says he thought the station could work because of enthusiasm over Obama, but that ratings collapsed to a level that could not be measured after the election.

But ratings nearly doubled, he says, at Snyder’s conservative station, WTNT, which features Laura Ingraham and Bill Bennett.

The very name “Obama 1260″ should have embarrassed the syndicated hosts who appeared on it.  It paints them as nothing more than apologists for a man who hadn’t yet worked a single day in executive office.  The name strongly suggests an overt campaign on behalf of Obama, and after the election, an effort to propagandize on his behalf.  Would a station branding itself on Obamamania dare to criticize the One and ruin its own brand?

Fortunately, we’ll never have to find out.  While ratings for conservative radio soared, undoubtedly in some part to see how conservatives would react to the election of Obama, taste for Obama worship cratered.  Neither will shock veteran radio people, who can see a gimmick for what it is and its expiration date when it arrives.

Tantum wants to put Schultz on the conservative station now to see if he can salvage a piece of his liberal line-up.  Something tells me that listeners will tune away from WTNT and tune in WMAL instead, where conservative listeners can avoid Fast Eddie.  Tantum may have been better advised to keep Miller instead, who has a better show, if he wanted balance instead of ratings.  Given the collapse of Tantum’s Obama 1260, why is WWRC still taking his advice?

How could a Obama radio station compete with the much bigger and better funded and organized competition? Major “news”papers, Left Wing Media T.V., taxpayer funded PBS and NPR, great looking phony blond INFOBABE clones, etc?
***
That failed radio station brought a whole new meaning to the term DEAD AIR. Maybe a better name (OBAMA 24/7) and format (tape loop of A** KISSING sounds) would have worked out better.

the freedom of talk radio & private citizens can to operate without government interference or influence is absolutely essential to maintaining that principle.

Reminds me of the “faux” intellectuals, when their liberal ideas fail, they resort to “it is just too intellectual”. PBS works because it is gov. supported, otherwise it is a failure. A boring failure, with little valued information.
Reminds me of the “great work of modern art” hung in a museum, all the “critics” raved about…then the artist came in and had them hang it correctly, seemed they had hung it upside down.
Liberals have no idea what they are watching, they just want to pretend they understand…

This is what’s so dumb about talk radio. It’s quite literally a mile a minute, steam rolling ahead without a thought of reflection, reconsidering and zero time to evaluate the evidence. Screeners purposefully select foils for the hosts to play off of in the appearance of “balance” if a person manages to play dumb long enough to get through the minute they make a good point they are cut off. It’s not a “news” format. It’s a rally, it’s entertainment it’s stirring the pot. But “news”? No, not really.

DeathToMediaHacks on February 2, 2009 at 11:16 AM

-
Gee… you missed class and now don’t know your home work assignment? See, many of us Rush and friends listeners actually only get 30 mins to an hour a day to listen…
-
But then we come on line. Watch (you know, V-i-d-e-o) the One put foot in mouth as Rush said he did, watch Joe the plumber be vilified by the left (for daring to ask a real question), watch Palin being hammered for stuff that Opie gets a complete pass on, see Bush and America being smeared by the “news” guys as they protect the “Chosen Fruit of the Day” (be it Hillary, Bambie, Biden, Billie Boy… even Frank)… Then someone here asks why I want to hear a mostly conservative point of view during my hour drive. Please…
-
Tried the libbie guys a few times. I’d rather listen to my car engine whine. I wanted to puke. NPR use to be okay, years and years ago. Now it’s mostly crap (except the car guys).
-
Please… Have all the libbie talk you want. Just pay for it yourself, and don’t expect me to find it interesting. My daughter was more intelligent than that swill talk when she was 16 for God sake.
-
And I’ve listened to Black Talk Radio regularly before… Some of it was great. Even the stuff that I didn’t agree with was usually better than the “Liberal” nonsense. I guess I like raw honesty. Shame is that stuff largely has no legs either.
-
So look… If conservative talk radio is too fast for you, start small (I mean Rush is a 20,000,000 seat classroom professor for a reason). I’d say stay with Car Talk for a while, then move up to the Disney Channel… Who knows, you may be listening to real intelligent talk radio sooner than you think.

Which is it with your side? Is the market the ultimate determinant of quality or are there other ways to measure it. The market says GoDaddy commercials are a great way to advertise American products, yet millions of outraged conservatives disagree. Corporate sponsorship and intellectual rigor just do not go hand in hand. Talk radio succeeds commercially because, like pop music or Paul Blart mall cop it’s simplistic, soundbiteable and reducable to simple slogans. I think conservatives were so pissed at Obama this election season because he managed to take progressive concepts and transform them into simple, repetitive soundbites that your side had a monopoly on.

Can anyone remember a single thing John Kerry ever said, of course not, but we all remember Bush saying “war on terror” about as many times as Obama said “yes we can.” I’ll admit, the Obama message principally works on the campaign trail, when it comes down to progressive policy making the grey and nuance have to return.

But to suggest that the ability to sell advertising time is the ONLY barometer for the quality of a cultural product/news cast is being purposefully obtuse. And on other issues your side seems to get that..

That’s why the good Performance Artists know better than to tip their hands. The second a liberal LABELS his work, his popularity plummets.

The elements of liberal media who constantly, massively and systematically LIE about their bias are still as popular as ever. Only conservatives can ever get away with telling the truth.

If put to a vote it fails nearly every time.

I agree that it can not work and is just socialism-lite, but it was put to a vote and won handily. That’s the problem; too many people are unable to discard it, while it has been a major influence in politics and the culture for 100 years.

I saw a lot of Obama campaign commericials, and I’m afraid I missed all the ones about Obama’s love of government control.

The only ones I saw were of him “articulately” jabbering about an utterly un-rationalized “hope” for the success of his leadership and an even more ill-defined “change” in the country.

I’m not sure it’s entirely a coincidence that’s the exact same two-plank platform promised by every Socialist dictator in history: “Support me, because nothing can possibly be worse than the status quo.”

DeathToMediaHacks on February 2, 2009 at 12:31 PM

So wait, you think we’re mad because Obama was able to convey his stance on issues in short simple soundbites? What stance is ‘yes we can’ ? Yes we can bankrupt the US? Yes we can turn this republic into a socialist state? Yes we can ruin the futures of your children and grandchildren? (or maybe with his stance on infanticide, yes we can kill them all before they’re an inconvenience)

Using your example, at least when Bush talked about the war on terror, we knew exactly what he meant. Tell me what does yes we can mean?

Er … this failure had nothing to do with a “financial model”. Let me read you the relevant section of the article again:

ratings collapsed to a level that could not be measured after the election

There is no financial model that can make a station work if it has no listeners.

progressoverpeace on February 2, 2009 at 10:32 AM

That could also be a result of the financial model. For example, maybe they don’t have the resources to advertise enough.

Also radios in the thousands typically have less coverage than radio under the 1000 mark. Which I am sure doesn’t help either.

Anyways, the bottom line is that there clearly are liberals in DC. Why they don’t listen to liberal is a great question, but the answer has to account for them. It can’t just be because all progressive hosts are terrible.

mycowardice on February 2, 2009 at 1:57 PM

A. “The very name “Obama 1260″ should have embarrassed the syndicated hosts who appeared on it.”

The other station was billed as McCain 570. When I first heard this on thye radio I thought that surely this was a bit partisan. Then I heard 570 advertising 1260 as Obama 1260.

Pretty smart of Snyder to try to corner the market on political commentary.

B. “The area’s only progressive talk station..

Forgetting of course the massive NPR line up. Pacifica Radio is also picked up on my car radio.

I see a lot of that around here. But there’s never any reason to try and figure out how many actual hands are on how many actual keyboards.

Socialism and Communism aren’t economic theories; collectivism begins and ends with collective thought. You could add all the moonbats in America together and you still wouldn’t get ONE complete personality. So an individual liberal’s schizophrenia is neither a blessing nor a curse; it’s pretty much irrelevant. (At least as far as Arbitron ratings are concerned, anyway.)

They could get their rating’s up, if they would just add “The Rush L. SHOW” to their Programming Schedule!!! IMHO!!

Well i quit listening to Savage bcs I was tired of his ranting.

Dr Laura cuts people off, but it’s her show.
In the end, the reason these people have an audience & a show to begin with is bcs people like them.
People like porn, that’s why you have the Playboy channel etc.
People don’t like Air America-so it went tit$ up.

If the American people do not wish to listen to Liberal Talk Radio, you cannot make them. Even if you were to bring back the Fairness Doctrine, the ratings during the Liberal Shows would be horrible.

kingsjester on February 2, 2009 at 4:20 PM

The crash of Obama Radio gives new impetus to the “Fairness Doctrine”.

petefrt on February 2, 2009 at 4:40 PM

Liberals 40 years ago and beyond used to be at least respected because they recognized the history of America, were not utterly ashamed of it and even more important did not try to dismiss the Founding Documents of America as unimportant or irrelevant.

With Obama and his merry men and women and the MSM you get the impression that the world did not exist before Obama, that American history before Obama is irrelevant or that administrations prior to Obama were all illegitimate.

Left-wing radio thus is forced to become cult followers; its spokesmen and spokeswomen simply shills (disciples) of the Messiah. They cannot present a coherent argument why Obama’s agenda must be passed except to say ‘grievances must be redressed’ and ‘America must be transformed’.

It’s like America for 220 years was some cesspool of misery and corruption that suppressed individual liberty and kept everybody poor and that capitalism exploited all of labor and that it is time the ‘fat cats’ got their due from the formerly oppressed.

DeathToMediaHacks on February 2, 2009 at 12:31 PM

Let me take your points one by one:
First, yes the market is the ultimate test, when a market is so overwhelmingly support one faction, and so distances itself from another, it is telling. Not only the money, but the interest it holds for people…what other measure is there?
You say corp spons. doesn’t go hand and hand with intellectual, yet corp spons. overwhelmingly support public radio, the ads (they don’t call them ads, but “underwriters” are businesses), and the other underwriters are major corps. Ooops, on you.
Some liked GoDaddy, others didn’t, I was with a roomful of conservatives, no one had a problem, but then there were no kids either…looks like you are striking out.
Pissed at Obama because his sound bites of “no lobbyists” now he has hired 17 lobbyist, and appointed at least two who are tax evaders…sound bites still need to be truthful and he has not shown that.
John Kerry fought in Viet Nam, everyone remembers that…
And looks like with Obama’s increase in military spending he is going to continue fighting the war on terror…sorry you are having a really bad post day.
And finally back to ads…well how about number of people watching or listening…Conservative talk is listened to by probably a 5 to 1 margin over whatever else is out there. Ads are a direct reflection on how many listeners are being reached…so choose your “gauge” ads or listeners, either one the liberals lose, and lose big…the only way they survive, like the minorities on your plantation, is by government subsistence.
You just had a terrible post, ripped apart…please don’t bother doing that again, you just wasted 5 minutes of my time just answering your foolish post.

To be fair, Ed, the owners also rebranded their conservative station as “McCain 570″ during the election and didn’t do the same to 1260 so far as I know.
According to Kurtz, they rebranded 1260 as “Obama 1260.” Or are you saying that they didn’t rebrand until after the election?

Kensington on February 2, 2009 at 11:04 AM

During the Election it was McCain 570 and Obama 1260. They did some promos where they mentioned both stations. After Obama won, 570 was renamed Freedom 570. 570 is a GREAT station. I did try listening to 1260 a few times but I didn’t hear anything there backed up with facts, so it got old very quickly
