Michael Savage Goes Back on the Air to Berate Liberals Again

Posted By on Wed, Oct 17, 2012 at 5:00 PM


Turns out, the very scary conservative Michael Savage couldn't keep his mouth shut for long. The shock jock's radio show, The Savage Nation, is reportedly returning to the airwaves next week via Cumulus Media Networks on KSFO-AM San Francisco.

The show, formerly in the 6 to 9 p.m. Eastern time slot, now will air from 9 p.m. to midnight Eastern, Monday through Friday. "Cumulus and Savage will make radio history," Savage said. "The turbulent times we live in give talk radio a new power. This is the biggest move of my radio career, and I look forward to reaching many

millions of new listeners on their flamethrower signals."

Savage officially became a free agent last month after he won a federal lawsuit against his former syndicator, Talk Radio Network. He had shelled out some $900,000 to get out of his contract.

The famously ultra-conservative radio host, who until last month was broadcasting from the left-leaning bastion of San Francisco, made a name for himself

by taking a stand against immigrants and Muslims; he was even banned from Great Britain in 2009 when the then-Labour government decided his "too extreme" views posed a security threat to the country.

In any event, listeners will be getting the usual earful from Savage just in time for Election Day.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
