Regarding Joe Holleman’s article “New KMOX show brings ‘local’ back to midday news-talk in St. Louis” (May 4): Finally. KMOX newscasters talk as if they are enjoying a fresh start post-Rush Limbaugh. Those poor staffers bullied into keeping the Limbaugh program for fear of a ratings drop.
It took the blowhard Limbaugh’s death for KMOX to sever ties — not a sudden moment of decency or leadership. Any relief and talk of a new day comes from a cowardly past, not a heroic present. There can be no renaissance without a denunciation of the dark ages.
