Wanted: local, left-leaning talk radio talent

Michael over at blatherWatch is beating the drums, calling for AM-1090, Seattle's progressive talk radio station (and home of Air America), to hire a locally-based left-leaning host to compete with home-grown right-wing weridos John Carlson and Kiby Wilbur. 

Michael's also brainstorming names -- everyone from Eddie Vedder to Judy Nicastro. 

One larger question this campaign raises is: where's the infrastructure that's training progressive pundits in the media skills it takes to be an effective talk radio host?  You think the Discovery Institute doesn't offer its "fellows" media training?

What, you mean Dave Ross isn't enough? Can nothing satisfy your insatiable need for liberal political commentary?
