Savage dumped by stations in Mississippi, Ohio

The bleeding continues.

First, Michael Savage began losing sponsors over his attacks on autistic children.

Now, he has begun losing stations.

Earlier this week, an entire statewide radio network in Mississippi dumped Savage.

The Super Talk Mississippi radio network has canceled The Savage Nation because of comments syndicated host Michael Savage made about autistic children last week.

Steve Davenport, president and CEO of Super Talk's parent company Telesouth Communications, confirmed The Savage Nation had been dropped from the network's lineup as of Monday.

"It was just horrible what he said," Davenport said Monday.

"When you talk about people in politics, business people, that's one thing. But when you talk about defenseless children, that's another."
Now, he is off the air in Cleveland, as well.

WHK AM/1420, the only Cleveland-area station carrying Savage's radio talk show, is break ing its contract with Savage's syndicator, Talk Radio Net work, said Mark Jaycox, who manages the Cleveland stations under the Salem Com munications corporate um brella. WHK is owned by California-based Salem Communi cations.

"This guy's a knucklehead, and I want to get rid of him," Jaycox said.
