Lynn CullenAs of Aug. 30, longtime radio talk show host Lynn Cullen will no longer be on the radio.

WPTT-AM (1360) is switching to a new format and will be eliminating Ms. Cullen's show, which airs from 9 a.m. to noon.

Ms. Cullen confirmed today that her last day would be Aug. 29.

While she will be taking a previously scheduled vacation this week, Ms. Cullen said she plans to be on the air for her final four days, Aug.26-29.

"You don't just create an audience in this business, you create a kind of community," said Ms. Cullen, known as one of Pittsburgh's few liberal broadcast personalities, "and I need to be able to talk to this community about this and to try to assuage what I suspect will be frustration and anger at losing a voice that they felt spoke for them."

More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

p.s. read the comments over at 2 political junkies, you'll want to just yell out loud!

  1. This is awful. Lynn should be given another job asap. Actually, Lynn should be aired nationally. Pittsburghers better make this one a priority and voice concern and outrage.
