Longtime Bay Area radio news anchor, Ed Baxter has been chosen as Talk 910 AM's new host from 10 AM- 1 PM.
I like Baxter. Good guy. Professional, interesting and compelling. Slightly.
Not a talk-show host though, my opinion.
I expected this gig to go to John Rothmann who is an outstanding interviewer, has a keen eye on the political arena and deep knowledge of the Middle East debate.
Of course this was a safe pick for the Clear Channel SF crowd and that is why its ratings are in the dumper too.
Choices like this will never move the needle.
It could have been worse.
