Quake Shakes Out Will, Willie

Radio Ink reports this morning that "Keeping It Real With Will & Willie," the KQKE/960 morning show starring Will Durst and Willie Brown, will be replaced by the syndicated Stephanie Miller program beginning next Monday (October 2) at 6 a.m.

Miller's call-in show will be beamed in from KTLK/Los Angeles to Clear Channel's foundering Bay Area "progressive talk" station, thereby furthering the cause of live and local programming.

...Or not.

Quoted in Radio Ink, KQKE program director Bob Agnew said, "We are very excited about adding Stephanie Miller to the mornings. From the minute the mike goes on, she is ON! Her energy level is so high it is infectious."

According to her website, "Steph" is the daughter of former U.S. Representative William Miller, who was losing GOP candidate Barry Goldwater's running mate in the 1964 Presidential election. If absolutely necessary, you may view pictures of her dogs by clicking here.

So they went from boring and known to boring and unknown. Wonderful.

I have to disagree. Stephanie Miller is great and funny! And she's not all political, either. She really "gives it" to movie stars like Tom Cruise as much as she does the Republicans.

But will that work in the Bay Area? (I'm in Fresno) For Air America to succeed long term, they really DO need a local host or two, especially in a place like SF.
But with competition from KQED, KPFA and the liberal hosts on KGO, they have their work cut out for them.

A little bit of Willie Brown I think goes a long way. But every day was probably too much.
