That's why I created a petition on SignOn.org to the advertisers and program director at Seattle AM Radio Station 1090, which says:
Don't let Seattle lose progressive radio! As a local radio listener, I pledge to support with my dollars any advertiser on any station that chooses to broadcast progressive programming.Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.
Thanks!We are confident that we're either going to see an existing radio station pick up progressive radio in Seattle - or better yet, an investor group come together to fund a whole new progressive talk radio station.The road ahead is long. But hey, Portland has scored a big early win, and we can do the same! Listen to Carl's show, call in (toll-free 877-CARL-066), tell your friends, and patronize his sponsors. As Big Eddie says: “You know what to do!”We want to assure you that we are working on the need to bring progressive radio back to Seattle. We'll be in touch with next steps - as well as other opportunities to put this community into action for our progressive priorities.Thank you, and "Tag you're it!"
