On November 9, the corporate owners of KPOJ - Clear Channel - changed formats from progressive talk to sports. This was done without warning and without explanation.
KPOJ was the very first Air America outlet, launched the national radio show of Thom Hartmann, and for years has been one of the brightest stars in the constellation of progressive talk stations in America. It has remained strongly profitable with a dedicated listener base and dedicated advertising sponsors. And KPOJ's Morning Show - first with Thom Hartmann and then with Carl Wolfson - has been a source of critical commentary and news in Portland.
We believe that this decision by Clear Channel management can be reversed. We can - and will - demonstrate that progressive talk radio in Portland has a dedicated listener base.
