Laura For Snow

It turns out Clear Channel talk WKRC/550 Cincinnati may not have, umm, needed listener help to select a replacement for FOX News Radio host-turned-presidential spokesman Tony Snow.

AllAccess is reporting that the station picks up TRN's Laura Ingraham for the 9-noon slot vacated by the new White House press secretary, starting next Monday.

Ingraham was one of four hosts on WKRC's website poll - the others being former time slot occupant Glenn Beck, money host Dave Ramsey and Cox/Jones' Neal Boortz. While Boortz could have been a dark horse due to his presence on Cox's WHIO/1290 Dayton, we didn't really expect anyone but Ingraham to take the opening.

For what it's worth, despite the announcement, the poll is still online at this writing...which means it has about as much influence on WKRC's decision as it did, well, before they announced Laura Ingraham as the new host...

Ignoring the "facade" of their poll, ANY of the other 3 choices would have been MUCH better than who they decided to go least with Boortz or Beck, and definitely with Ramsey,it wouldn't be all-politics-all-the-time. All the more reason, when I'm in a talk-radio mood, for 700.

Beck would have been the smart bet.
