North Dakota's Left-Wing Talk Radio Sees Ratings Decline From Previous Election Cycle

North Dakota's Left-Wing Talk Radio Sees Ratings Decline From Previous Election Cycle

The ratings slide at KFGO, the Fargo-based radio station that serves as home to left-wing talk radio hosts Joel Heitkamp and Mike McFeely, seems to continue. The station is touting their continued success as the ratings leader in the Fargo market, but the larger ratings trends don’t look good for them. KFGO was up slightly in

Latest Ratings Show Continued Slide For Left-Wing Talkers Joel Heitkamp, Mike McFeely

Back in February I wrote about a big drop in ratings for KFGO, the Fargo-based flagship for North Dakota’s left-wing talk radio hosts Joel Heitkamp and Mike McFeely. They lost nearly 4 points in the ratings, and were in real danger of being overtaken by an FM music station. The problem with looking at any one

Shortly After Getting Parole White Supremacist Craig Cobb Calls Talk Radio Defending Donald Sterling, Cliven Bundy

Yesterday, shortly after being released from jail to four years of probation for terrorizing in Leith, North Dakota, Craig Cobb called in to Scott Hennen’s statewide talk radio show. Hilariously, Cobb weighs in on the situation with racist Clippers owner Donald Sterling, suggesting that rapper Jay-Z who is part owner of the Broolyn Nets should be

Left Wing North Dakota Talkers Joel Heitkamp, Mike McFeely Lost Big Ratings In Latest Arbitrons

Readers in the Fargo area tell me they’ve noticed a drop off in the number of callers to left-wing talk shows hosted by Joel Heitkamp (brother to US Senator Heidi Heitkmap) and Mike McFeely. They were wondering if those shows had seen a drop off in the ratings. While I’m a frequent guest on talk

Radio Hosts Joel Heitkamp, Mike McFeely To Lose Syndication In Western North Dakota

The rumors have been flying in political circles for some time now, but today I can confirm that within thirty days Joel Heitkamp and Mike McFeely will only be broadcasting in Fargo. Currently Heitkamp is syndicated on KFYR AM550 out of Bismarck and KCJB AM910 out of Minot in addition to his KFGO signal. McFeely

Hennen's Notebook: Planned Parenthood, March For Life And Guns In Church

I wonder if Representative Kathy Hawken (RINO – Fargo) remembers what happened to Senator Curtis Olafson? Given her cheer leading this week for the two NDSU professors who were part of dissing legislators by doing an end-around the law on sex-education curriculum in North Dakota, she could face the same fate at election time. She

Being Right Doesn't Always Win Elections

At the Grand Forks Herald, opinion editor Tom Dennis uses the occasion of President Obama’s second-term inauguration to argue that Republicans haven’t been winning a lot of elections of late because they aren’t sufficiently caring. After referencing one of Scott Hennen’s columns here on SAB, Dennis writes that the problem with Republicans is that we

A Ghoulish Display Of Political Theater At The State Capitol

DUI policy will be a hot topic in this legislative session thanks to the Fargo-centric media sensationalizing a few tragic DUI crashes. As I’ve written before, the DUI problem in North Dakota a) isn’t nearly as bad as some would have you believe and b) certainly isn’t being solved by “get tough” enforcement policies. But

NDSU Backtracks On Partnership With Planned Parenthood

Alternate headline: University President Suddenly Very Deferential When Legislature Is In Session NDSU President Dean Bresciani was on the Scott Hennen Show today and was asked about his institution’s legally dubious decision to partner with far-left abortion mill mogols Planned Parenthood for sex education. The legislature had already turned down the federal funds in question

Hennen Column: Notebook From A Busy Week

It’s been a long and productive week. My notebook is chock full of tidbits. Since I’m sleep deprived and unable to decide which one is worthy of a column, I have a better idea. I am introducing a new Common Sense Club notebook. – Monday was the day legislators rolled into Bismarck to begin the
