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.
