I just found out that our leading liberal talk radio host in Madison, WI has been fired. The radio station, WTDY, fired John "Sly" Sylvestor and everyone else at the station today and is now playing Christmas music nonstop. Sly left this statement for all his listeners.
Message to everybody: I just want to inform you that today was my last day of employment at WTDY. After 15 years, I was told that my services were no longer needed. I would like to thank everybody that's supported my program. It's been a pleasure to share this wonderful experience with you. I need to take a big deep breath this weekend and figure out what my future plans are. But, old Winter Soldiers NEVER DIE, and I look forward to letting you know what lies ahead. Solidarity!More of his exploits below the fold.
I listened to Sly everyday on my way to work. He hated Governor Walker and had many a show about him. He was at the rallies last Winter for the Solidarity movement in Wisconsin and led and introduced the speakers. Recently he was at the Sensata plant that Mitt Romney closed and did his show from there.
Sly is a great host, a real liberal who has appeared on MSNBC giving color during the Walker fiasco last year. He will be missed, hopefully he can parley his success in Madison into a National gig.
