    Glenn Beck dropped by New York's WOR radio station over poor ratings, replaced by Mike Gallagher

    Glenn Beck may be one of the hottest talk show hosts in the country, but he apparently left New York's WOR cold.

    WOR (710 AM), one of the city's two biggest talk radio stations, said this morning it is dropping Beck's syndicated show as of Jan. 17 and replacing him with a familiar New York name: Mike Gallagher.

    "The reason is ratings," said WOR program director Scott Lakefield. "Somewhat to our surprise, the show wasn't getting what we wanted."

    Beck's a loon, but don't read too much into this.

    WOR gets its ass kicked by WABC (Limbaugh/Hannity/Levin) all day long.

    Beck makes a better book than he does on a talk show. In my market Rush Limbaugh is on at the same time so Beck does not have a chance.

    Good books buy not great, I do not like a book with out an index.

    It doesn't really have anything to do with Beck.

    WABC is a powerhouse owned by Citadel.

    WOR is the 90 lb weakling owned by Buckley Broadcasting.

    Analogy: It's like putting Shaq on a high school basketball team, and then blaming Shaq when they lose anyway to the Harlem Globetrotters. *shrug* It really doesn't have anything to do with Shaq.

    It's only a matter of time now.

    By 2012 he will be dropped from FOX.

    If he passes then, whenever a CON is in Office Beck will lose relevance...RAPIDLY!

    Just learned that he's being replaced by Mike Gallagher...another Nazi, but at least a bit more sane one.

    Is this on your "Wish List"? Because, I really don't know how you can say that with any sincerity, or knowledge.
