Conservative talk radio personality Larry Elder is back on 790 KABC.
The "Sage from South Central" returned to the airwaves September 27th--replacing the Frosty, Heidi and Frank Show--almost two years after he and KABC parted ways.
After the show's cancellation, Elder--a self-described "small l" libertarian Republican--considered running for U.S. Senate against Barbara Boxer if Carly Fiorina backed out.
Citadel Broadcasting Corp, the owner of KABC and the third largest radio broadcaster in the country, filed for bankruptcy in December 2009 and emerged from reorganization in May. It's reorganized its lineup, leading to the cancellation of the Frosty, Heidi and Frank experiment.
That show was more suitable to FM radio, with its sophomoric humor, debauchery and drinking shows. For KABC, the trio tried to tone it down and discuss more political news but the format did not succeed.
I've listened to them off and on since about 1996--they really have a great show and it's too bad it didn't work out.
But at least Elder is back--his show features first-class commentary. I hope he sticks around on radio for a long time (unless he decides to run for public office...)
