Michael Savage Goes Back on the Air to Berate Liberals Again

Turns out, the very scary conservative Michael Savage couldn't keep his mouth shut for long. The shock jock's radio show, The Savage Nation, is reportedly returning to the airwaves next week via Cumulus Media Networks on KSFO-AM San Francisco.

The show, formerly in the 6 to 9 p.m. Eastern time slot, now will air from 9 p.m. to midnight Eastern, Monday through Friday. "Cumulus and Savage will make radio history," Savage said. "The turbulent times we live in give talk radio a new power. This is the biggest move of my radio career, and I look forward to reaching many millions of new listeners on their flamethrower signals."

Savage officially became a free agent last month after he won a federal lawsuit against his former syndicator, Talk Radio Network. He had shelled out some $900,000 to get out of his contract.

The famously ultra-conservative radio host, who until last month was broadcasting from the left-leaning bastion of San Francisco, made a name for himself by taking a stand against immigrants and Muslims; he was even banned from Great Britain in 2009 when the then-Labour government decided his "too extreme" views posed a security threat to the country.

In any event, listeners will be getting the usual earful from Savage just in time for Election Day.

what did you think of the article by the "SF Weakly", very weakly I might add.

 The article failed to mention that Michael did indeed have to spend over $900,000

in legal fees to win his contractual freedom, but he also received $1,000,000 in legal

restitution for those legal fees.  I'm a devoted Savage Listener, have been for 17 years, and I'm not forced to listen to him, I WANT TO LISTEN TO HIM...MILLIONS DO. 



i think the time is right for michael savage now. more people in the san francisco bay area will be receptive to listening to him.   in the past years oakland has become a war zone where you can't walk a few blocks without fear of being stabbed or shot and in san francisco city hall and the police have decided the rights of anarchists, homeless people and naked men are paramount.   rents prices have gone sky high and people in general i think are demanding more in terms of quality of life and neighborhood issues.  i think michael savage will be more popular than ever.


I don't understand the hate here.    Michael Savage rips on both parties..and has suffered consequences for ticking off the right.    He is far from "Ultra Conservative".   He is independent and it shows in his show.  He has a unique point of view you don't hear with liberal or conservative radio or TV shows.  He has been dead on right on many political scandals before they happened.  He has a lot of insight as well as a huge audience of both liberals and conservatives.   Lumping him in with Glen Beck and Rush is just wrong.  Savage does not carry a torch for either party.


He's just not very interesting or intelligent.  


Much like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and others of their ilk, he's popular amongst people who haven't learned to think for themselves.


If you ever listened to Savage you would know he has called out the big spending Bush and repubs and worthless dems too, hence you won't see him on Fox news or NBC.  He's more honest than the whole bunch of them.  He is "Banned in Britain" by the slime Bushies over the security of the Dubai ports deal.     Borders, Language, Culture- think about it.

He's a locally-sourced Ann Coulter.


 @hoops67 #1, I've listened to Michael and the Savage Nation for 17 years now, since the inception of the show, glad it's going back to KSFO, the sister station of KGO, where it all got started.  But if M. Savage ain't "ultra conservative", then who is...Of course, Savage is far right, we need him to be far right, especially when you have a Communist in the White House.

  But Savage has endorsed Romney, btw...who else has the guts to run against a Communist posing as a President.  Romney is doing very well right now in the Presidential race.
