The Catholic Church Silences Progressive Radio in Columbus

Progressive Talk 1580 WVKO Columbus is no more. The one and only progressive voice on radio in the state of Ohio has been silenced by Saint Gabriel Radio an arm of the Catholic Church. The station was under lease by Gary Richards that has put and kept the progressive format on the air in Columbus with successful shows like Stephanie Miller and Ed Schultz along with local progressive programming with Michael Alwood and Dr. Bob Fitrakis.

The station has been purchased by Saint Gabriel Radio and is changing the format to catholic programming. So once again all political talk on the airwaves are totally ruled by the right wing and their hate speech and lies once again.

All is however not lost. There is an effort to bring the progressive format back on another spot on the dial. The website will stay up to stay abreast of developments.

I do wish to thank Gary and all those that stuck their necks out to fight for this format.

Ah, the Catholic Church smashes forward-looking ideas once again. Recall one of their first attempts...with Copernicus.
