Radio´s Laura Ingraham off the air
Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/27/2012 12:36:17 PM

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.

She´s been off the air here since November 1 when her station went 24/7 Christmas music. There are almost no talk radio stations left in Louisville. I would get paranoid, but they´re after me.

I love Laura. She was on a station here in the KC area at 9 am then recently not. Maybe that is one reason she is fishing.

We have missed her! So this is why.

Conservative talk shows are readily available online. That´s where we listen to RUSH and, ´The Great One, ´´ Mark Levin.

I have a question for the Beck fans ...

... is his site worth the price of subscription?

Would it ´play´ in the background like Limbaugh´s show?

You know what I mean.

I miss him from Fox ...

I was a loyal listener for years but I stopped listening about a year ago when I finally could not endure her saying – “You’re listening to the Laura Ingraham Show.” – every fourteen seconds. Okay, I exaggerate. But, roughly seven or eight times per hour was not at all unusual. If she were to omit that annoying, repetitive, unnecessary (Duh! I KNOW what I’m listening to!) verbal crutch-like tic, I’d probably reinstate my audience membership.

Laura, in the words of your pal, TV Factor Boy, “Wise up!”

I subscribe to Laura´s show and get her thru the internet. Today had Tammy Bruce on. No word about Laura today. Michael Savage just recently changed distributor and was off-air around 5-6 weeks if I remember correctly.

Michael Savage was also with Talk Radio Network, fought a long legal battle and got out with something near a million dollars in damages, plus his back tapes.

Agree with a few others here in that while Laura Ingraham´s content is acceptable, I find her tone and delivery annoying and thus do not listen.

I listen on the internet. So I look up the list and pick a few near by (mas o meno).
I thought it would be great if CBS would hire her for the Evening news. Let her be editor too.
And romney should have cleaned house and made her his director. Should have paid her what she wanted. He can afford it and he´d be moving into the WH.
But I wish that she would stop saying that this person or that is a great person when they are really horrible. Sheneeds to move out of the area to get some perspective...

Ms. Laura should, like Sean Hannity, have her show broadcasted on both radio and television. She is that good!.......Here´s a suggestion Roger: (A) Reassign the Levittown, Long Island Leprechaun to a different time slot and (B) Give the the brilliant attractive Ms. Ingraham the prime time hours of 8-9 PM EST. You will be glad, not sad, you did!

Fox News should start its own version of ´´The View,´´ featuring Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Condi Rice, and Sarah Palin sitting around a table discussing the news of the day.

Each one of those women has more humor, intelligence, good looks, and charisma than the entire Fox network team of anchors combined.

How long will mediocrity continue to reign supreme at Fox News?

Go Beck! - Laura, go somewhere you can speak the untrammeled truth, Fox is dying from sameness of analysts,round tablers, and liberal over saturation - Lou Dobbs and Greta are still worth watching-they at least allow the courtesy of letting their guests speak more than one sentence without bozo type interruptions. The Five are quite entertaining almost the answer to the View - why not invite an audience to the Five?

Did her contract really end or did she get dumped by the network? I´ve found her hard to listen to for months. She´s shrill and harsh and her constant dumping on Romney was enfuriating. Her constant whining about Romney refusing to come on her show got me hooting with laughter. Why should he when all she did was criticize everything he did?

EL PASO, Texas- Questions about affairs, death and murder were all part of a fourth-grade reading assignment at Pasodale Elementary in the Lower Valley. One woman who did not want to show her face on camera told KFOX14 her son brought the assignment home because he was attending another tutoring session when his teacher passed it out. She is concerned other students completed the questions in class, so other parents could not stop them from reading it. "How is she grading it? Is she reading it?

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

President Obama said Thursday more than 8 million Americans selected a private health plan through his signature health overhaul, topping the most recent tally by a half-million people and offering the president an opportunity to blast Republicans for criticizing his efforts. “This thing is working,” he said, cautioning his law will not solve everything that ails the country’s health care system. He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said. Republicans say Mr. Obama’s enthusiasm is fleeting, because a portion of Americans

Sen. John Cornyn (R., Texas) is demanding answers from Attorney General Eric Holder on the Justice Department’s pursuit of “smart gun” technology, warning that the government could require all gun owners to wear biometric bracelets to operate their firearms. Cornyn sent a letter to the attorney general on Wednesday in response to remarks he made in testimony before a House subcommittee earlier this month, which were first reported by the Washington Free Beacon. Holder said his agency is “exploring” technology to make guns “more safe.” “By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or

An army of NYPD cops on Thursday evicted a homeless man from his Manhattan Bridge “home” — which was complete with a gas heater, hot sauce and beer. A dozen officers from both the 5th and 84th Precincts plus four Emergency Service Unit cops launched the raid about 9:50 a.m. A DOT worker on a ladder first used bolt cutters to remove a red bicycle lock on the wooden structure — which turned out to be fully insulated with Styrofoam and a large tarp. “Police department! Police department!” cops yelled, but got no reply, so ESU officers used a saw

NATO announced Wednesday that it is enhancing its military footprint on its eastern flank, and the alliance’s top military commander in Europe hinted that in light of Russia’s recent aggression, it is “important that we take a pause and determine what is appropriate for [the size of] U.S. forces in Europe.” The number of U.S. troops in Europe has dropped dramatically since the Soviet Union collapsed. More recently, the Obama administration has touted its “pivot” to Asia. Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen. Philip Breedlove, a U.S. Air Force general, was asked if the number of U.S. forces stationed in Europe should

With total student loans exceeding $1 trillion, one must ask “is the tassel worth the financial hassle” when it comes to spending for prestigious colleges. Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it. If you expect your average annual income over the first 10 years you are out of school to be $50,000, be really, really careful about taking

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
