4/24/12, "Boortz Not Buying "Friendlier" Talk Angle," Radio Ink
"In the upcoming May 7th issue of Radio Ink magazine talker Neal Boortz discusses the recent push by Cumulus and others for a more toned down type of talk radio. Cumulus launched Mike Huckabee April 9th pushing the show as a friendlier conservative talk host. Boortz isn't buying that consumers have tired of the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and others and they want to see more talkers like Huckabee and Michael Smerconish.

People like Huckabee aren't 'conservative.' They're boring has-beens the establishment GOP likes to keep out there in hopes of preventing actual conservatives from rising to prominence.
