Top 11 Reasons AM1280 The Patriot's Ratings Among Adults 25-54 Fell

11. The station's appeal is becoming more selective

10. The Twin Cities isn't much of a talk radio town

9. White males just not as angry as they used to be

8. Jay Larson's incredible work ethic and brilliant ideas no longer around to save station's ass

7. Dean Barnett started guest hosting for Hugh Hewitt

6. In retrospect, putting Mitch Berg's face on a billboard might not have been a great idea

5. Lingering resentment over cancellation of "Rabuse On The Right"

4. It's hard to listen to the radio while wearing a coon-skin cap

3. Listening to socially mal-adjusted nerds drone on and on and on about "politics" is boring

2. Not enough unpaid promotional appearances by local talent at used car lots and county fairs

1. Adults 25-54 becoming less fascinated by technical difficulties

I thought these lists were supposed to be jokes. These are actual reasons not to listen to the station, especially #1. I guessing people tuned in, heard all of the dead air, and assumed the station was no longer on the air.

People went over to 100.3 KTLK FM where they offer entertainment and thoughtful discussion... the patriot is all but dead

"People went over to 100.3 KTLK FM"

If you looked into the facts, the KTLK audience also dropped. Down over 25%.

On the other hand, Air America Radio audience grew.

Sorry that facts ave a liberal bias.

This comment from Brian Lambert--no fan of The Patriot or KTLK--probably explains it best:

In general, what with lower ratings for WCCO, KFAN, The Patriot, Air America and a negligible increase for heavily-promoted KTLK, it doesn't appear Twin Cities audiences were in much of a mood for talk this past spring.

Those who believe that big government is the solution to everything never listen to talk radio; those who believe that big government ISN'T the solution to anything are so fed up with how screwed up government is, they don't need to hear about it anymore. That's why I no longer listen to talk shows. BTW, if you are fed up with store customer service, wait until we get public health care!!!!
