Yeah his show is boring, but it's got a following and he's huge otherwise the network wouldn't carry him and he wouldn't be picked up on pretty much every progressive and moderate station across the U.S. (go ahead and insert your joke here about how it's not that many stations, we all know you're up to your elbow in Rush Limbaugh OxyContin Thigh Fat Radio)
: Part of me thinks Clear Channel busts out a programming change threat every year or so just to keep the "Friends of Progressive Talk" active. The "Friends" hold a rally, Cap Times and the liberal blogs pick it up and it's free press for Press. Local small-businesses buy some more ad time and everyone's happy.
: It's either that, or they are legitimately trying to shake-up their drive-time. Makes sense, as Bill Press is dreadfully boring. If they really wanted to increase ratings, you'd think this would be the best timeslot for a live, local show but we'll never see that when syndicated programming is so cheap.
