This seems to be a trend to shut down ‘progressive’ talk and replace it with sports. KPOJ (which was profitable despite what they would like us to believe) in Portland, OR suffered an unannounced switch to FOX sports (talk about adding insult to injury) 3 days after the election when there are already 2 sports stations in Portland. The next closest progressive station is a low power station in Coos Bay (KPOJ would reach Coos Bay, but not the other way around). Seattle’s AM 1090 (KFNQ) will be converting to sports format in January (already 3 sports stations in the Seattle area). Now WTDY.
There’s a SaveKPOJ facebook page and as of this writing it had 4907 likes (oops, now 4914) where the “Fox Sports radio 620″ has 528 (and a bunch of people posting they want the old format back) and there is already over 14,500 signatures on the petition at http://www.savekpoj.com/.
