SAGA Talk WINA-A/CHARLOTTESVILLE has dropped TALK RADIO NETWORK's MICHAEL SAVAGE in the wake of the controversy over the host's comments on autism. The station has picked up the syndicated DAVE RAMSEY show for the 8-10p ET slot on weeknights.
PD RICK DANIELS told CHARLOTTESVILLE weekly paper THE HOOK, "Quite honestly, it came down to common decency. Although he was trying to make a bigger point, he didn’t clarify it at all. We took into account our listeners and some feedback we’ve gotten, and we wanted to do what was best for our community."
