Charlottesville Station WINA Drops Savage

July 23rd, 2008
WINA Replaces Michael Savage with The Dave Ramsey Show
Last week on his nationally syndicated show talk host Michael Savage made some very uninformed and reprehensible comments concerning the growing issue of autism in America.  NewsRadio 1070 WINA vehemently defends the right each of us has to the freedom of speech.  We also understand that sometimes people make mistakes.  However, Michael Savage has shown no remorse and offered no apologies for his fact-less tirade and has, in fact, tried to justify his insensitive remarks.  Our mission at WINA has always been to offer the best possible and most stimulating talk for Charlottesville.  It is clear that Michael Savage no longer fits with our or your high standards.
Starting tonight WINA is proud to replace Michael Savage with The Dave Ramsey Show.  Dave Ramsey has been a fixture of the WINA Weekend Lineup for years and can now be heard every weeknight from 8pm to 10pm.  Particularly during these tough economic times we feel that Mr. Ramsey’s message is much more useful and positive.
