One of Atlanta radio’s major conservative voices did not hold back in his reaction to the Senate runoff elections in Georgia. When it became clear that the Democrats will likely win both races, Erick Erikson took to Twitter late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning to put the blame squarely on President Trump. Erickson also called those claiming election fraud in the Senate races, “F*ucking Idiots”. Erickson  also addressed the topic on WRGA’s The Erick Erickson Show Wednesday morning.

“This was not so much the Democrats won, but the Republicans surrendered,” Erickson said. “When you have a President that goes around the state saying the November election was stolen, that it was rigged, Trump voters stayed home. Georgia has a Trump problem. Trump voters bowed down to their Golden Calf and screwed the rest of the GOP.”

Erickson also has strong Tweets and words for those conspiracy theorists and Trump supporters who believe the elections were stolen.

“It’s not a sinister dump of votes from DeKalb County when the Republican officials knew it was 170,000 votes outstanding,” Erickson tweeted after a large batch of ballots were counted from the Democratic stronghold.  “That’s not a conspiracy to contrive votes. Why are you people such willful f*cking idiots?”

Erickson doubled down on that rhetoric during his show Wednesday morning.

“The election was not stolen. it was conducted fairly,” he said “Yet all the Trump-humpers still believe the lie that this was somehow stolen. The Democrats won because they did a better job identifying potential democratic voters and getting them out to vote. You know what Trump and his supporters did? (They were) Running around whining that they lost in November, raising money for legal challenges that were going to fail and I kid you not, selling Trump wrapping paper for Christmas. If they had actually focused on winning the election, the outcome would have been different, but here we are. The Democrats did not murder the Republicans last night. The Republicans committed suicide.”

In many circles, Erickson is considered a conservative evangelical and according to his bio page on WRGA, he is currently pursuing a degree in theology. It remains to be seen whether his salty language via tweet or his sharp criticism of President Trump will drive away evangelical listeners since Trump enjoys high approval ratings among that demographic.

Erickson also hosts The Erick Erickson Show from 4-6 pm weekdays on WSB out of Atlanta.

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.

Champlin Broadcasting Conservative Talk The Eagle 96.9 KQOB Enid/Oklahoma City and 1640 KZLS Enid will look a little different for its listeners as the station has rebranded.

Rather than calling itself The Eagle 96.9, the radio station will now be known as Freedom 96.9 (h/t Radio Insight). KZLS started simulcasting on KQOB at the beginning of this year after the 96.9 signal was leased to Citadel and Cumulus Media for nineteen years. 

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.

Freedom 96.9 is teasing the addition of Dana Loesch to the lineup as well to enhance the rebrand further as the station begins a new chapter as it provides news/talk to the residents.
