The Top 25 Streaming Talk Shows

The Top Internet Streaming Talk Shows

The Internet is starting to change the business of talk radio.  Technology has allowed consumers to stream their favorite talk programs when they are interested in listening, not when the local radio station wants to broadcast it.

In my case, independent Conservative Dr. Michael Savage is not broadcast in my local market.  So two to four times a week I will stream Savage while working on THE FEDERALIST blog.  I will end up listening to Savage's show on stations in Texas or Florida.

Editor’s note:

Michael Savage is ranked #1 for the first quarter 2014. Unopposed The Savage Nation annexes afternoon drive winning new listeners and justly reclaiming the top streaming talker spot. Rush a solid second, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin and Laura Ingraham round out the top five talk shows for the quarter. Clyde Lewis host of Ground Zero impressively improves his rank from #22 to #15 and Jerry Doyle back from his short sabbatical returns to the top 25 list.

Alien Anal Probes for All.
I can't help myself. I just have to listen. Noory is a great broadcaster. Thank God someone is out there to warn us about Nazi moon colonies and the Lizard People.
