Radio's Laura Ingraham off the air

By Associated Press

POSTED:



NEW YORK >> Radio talk show host Laura Ingraham is off the air — at least temporarily.

She said Tuesday that she's leaving her distributor, Talk Radio Network, after more than nine years because her contract is up. Ingraham said she is in discussions with other distributors about her show, which currently airs on 325 stations nationally.

Talkers magazine says the conservative Ingraham is the most-listened to woman on radio, with an estimated 5.75 million listeners a week. Talkers said that ranks her among the top eight radio hosts overall.

In the meantime, she said she'll keep her opinions flowing on her website, on Twitter and during Fox News Channel appearances.

You are right. And so are all others on TV and radio. Yes that includes MSNBC. So take the information from all sources with a grain of salt and research it. Become informed. Don't discount everything the right or left has to say.

There are many difficulties with terrestial radio. You have to bow down to the producers, the marketing accounts and are a slave to ratings. It is too much power in other peoples hands controlling your content and what you say. I do not blame Laura for leaving. She should go on to sirius/xm like Dr. Laura Schleshinger did, there is where you can speak more "freely"!

That is nto all she is speaking about. Granted, she is a more intelligent, better informed version of Rush. But in the end she is worthless in her constant irresponsible attacks and entertainment politics..

Maybe you should listen to her, rather than spout msnbc bull. Of course, you may already have, in which case exactly what do you disagree with?

I always felt distressed and anxious whenever she spoke out loud. Could not figure out why. After a few minutes - 4-5 max - I had to change the station because it was so uncomfortable. Did anyone else feel that way? I would really like to know.

For some of those leaving comments, they may be confusing Ann Coulter for Laura Ingram. Somewhere between Fox News and MSNBC, there's hope for the plain truth. I consider myself an Independent and try to be an objective as anyone can be, but some of the commentators on MSNBC border very closely to the ridiculous and fictiional writing than any of the other "major" news stations. I don't even bother watching MSNBC anymore, not as long as there are others available.
