Extra! Extra! Clear Dumps Injured Laurie Roth

Just got word from Big John Rook that Clear Channel, which monopolizes Spokane radio stations, has dumped the syndicated “Laurie Roth Show.” Roth, of course, is the conservative Spokane area firebrand who was critically injured in a motorcycle accident with a deer three or four weeks ago. I interviewed her about a year ago. Although she talked tough on the airwaves, she was a real sweetheart. A wonderful woman. Big John tells Huckleberries that Clear Channel’s unilateral move to kick Roth while she was down really hurt the local woman. For John’s complete comment on this sad chapter of Laurie’s life, click here. Also, you can visit Laurie’s Web site here.
