Another one bites the dust

Left wing talk radio is apparently seeing another celebrity-based show going down in flames. Brian Maloney, who runs the excellent site The Radio Equalizer, reports 

Just weeks after claiming she would reshape her faltering radio program to focus on a New York City audience, Whoopi Goldberg has now been cancelled even there.

According to press and trade reports today, Wake Up With Whoopi was yanked from WKTU-FM today without warning, other than a brief note sent to staffers mere hours before the change. Poor ratings were cited by the station.

Recently,
after similar results led to terminations in Chicago and Philly, your Radio Equalizer speculated that Whoopi's radio days appeared numbered. Now, one can easily expect the syndicated program to be shut down, perhaps in the next few days.
Her program runs in the morning hours, and is titled "Wake up with Whoopi." SWhoopi Goldbergeeing that even someone as crazy left as Ted Danson evidently found that waking up with Whoopi had its downside, the name strikes me as a mistake.

The performer formerly known as Caryn Johnson has already announced  her retirement from acting because scripts are no longer being sent to her, in order to focus on broadcasting. She still has her spot on the ABC program The View, of course, where she replaced Rosie O'Donnell.


Perhaps she will follow failed talk show host Al Franken and announce a run for the Senate?
