We are extremely disappointed with your decision to drop "The Phil Hendrie Show" from the KNEW line-up. We have been fans of Phil for several years, and after we relocated to Northern California we were delighted to learn that Phil was available on an SF station. Needless to say, the news of his departure was very upsetting.
AM radio is literally overrun with conventional conservative talk. While we consider ourselves to be conservative and appreciate the conservative viewpoint, we only need to hear the daily Republican talking points so many times in a day. Your existing line-up of Armstrong & Getty, Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, and Michael Savage more than satisfy the Bay Area's need for conservative thought.
Phil Hendrie is one of the few remaining entertainment-oriented personalities on AM radio. Frankly, he's the only AM radio personality we've managed to find that is actually creative. His innovative humor has an appeal that's lacking both in the television medium and elsewhere on the radio spectrum. And because Phil is a conservative Democrat, his limited political content appeals to a much broader audience than other hosts in your line-up, thus affording your advertisers the benefit of a broader listening public. Replacing Phil with yet another conservative mouthpiece is a blow both to the quality of radio entertainment and intellectual diversity on the air.
We hope that you will reconsider your decision to drop Phil's show from your line-up. We have enjoyed listening to Phil Hendrie on KNEW for over a year and, frankly, once he's gone our radio dial will likely never land on your station again.
