BREAKING: Portland’s Progressive Talk Station, Clear Channel-owned KPOJ, Flipped to Fox Sports as of Tonight
More progressive talk pushed off OUR PUBLIC AIRWAVES and, again, in one of the nation’s most progressive cities…
(UPDATE: As of 6:00pm PT, the KPOJ website is now “Fox Sports AM 620 Portland”.)
This is horrible. Clear Channel-owned 620 AM KPOJ in Portland, one of the most progressive cities in one of the most progressive states, has flipped its önly commercial progressive talk radio station from news/talk to Fox Sports as of tonight at 5:30pm local time.
Portland will still have several other Rightwing talk radio stations, and they already have two sports stations, but the Bain Capital-owned media conglomerate is now killing yet another progressive voice from our publicly-owned airwaves.
