On Monday, talk-show host, Bill Walsh, announced in an interview with AC360 that he is losing his radio program.
“I just found out that I lost my radio show,” Walsh told CNN’s John Berman who was filling in for Anderson Cooper.
“I just got a notice before I came in the studio. I’m running for president. I oppose this president. Most of my listeners support the president,” he continued. “It’s not an easy thing to do to be in conservative talk radio and oppose this president.”
“And I knew that, John, when I made the announcement yesterday, that it could be in jeopardy,” he added. Video Below

According to The Hill, Salem Radio Network announced early on Monday that it was canceling national distribution of Walsh’s show effective Sept. 26.
Salem Radio Network said in a statement, “This announcement does not affect Walsh’s local program airing on AM 560 The Answer in Chicago, however Walsh’s program will have to be removed as soon as he becomes a viable and legal candidate for President.”
It appears Walsh will face a major uphill battle taking on the President as he revealed in his CNN interview that 80% to 90% of his radio followers are Trump supporters.
