If you spend anytime on the road switching radio channels in LA, you’ve probably listened to KFI, which brodcasts from a tower in La Mirada. I’ve listened to the station since at least 1988, and remember the days of Tom Leykis, Joe Crummey, Phil Hendrie and the attempted Political Human Sacrifice of U.S. Rep. David Dreier, R-San Dimas..
When Hendrie was replaced with John Ziegler I wasn’t going to listen, but I did — and liked what I heard.
Well if you don’t know it by now, let me break the news — Ziegler is gone. Apparently a pretty nasty divorce.
Zig has put up a page that tells his side of the story.
Here’s the intro:
This website is dedicated to telling the totally true story of John Ziegler’s experience at KFI in Los Angeles. John realizes that the creation of this website probably ends any chance that he will ever again hit the highest levels of talk radio and may very well end his talk radio career totally. But he is at peace with that potential consequence because he feels there are certain truths that are worth the risk to tell, especially when you are really the only person in the world in a position to do so.
This website is devoted to one of those truths. Specifically, that the talk radio industry (and particularly KFI) is dominated by freaks, fakes, frauds and phonies who tend to make crack whores seem respectable and reputable by comparison ….
There’s plenty more packed into a dense four-page read….
