Portland's progressive talk-radio station 620 AM KPOJ is ending all political programming and changing its format to all sports.
KPOJ morning host Carl Wolfson announced the decision by the station owner, Clear Channel Media, on his Facebook page this morning.
To my friends -- Clear Channel informed me this morning that they are moving in a new direction with KPOJ, beginning on Monday. I appreciate the opportunity they gave me for six years to be a voice for progressive causes in our state and nation. I will miss all of my fun friends at work (my excellent producer Paul, remains employed!). I love all of you, my loyal listeners. It has been my honor to give a platform to all of the outstanding groups, volunteers, elected officials and good people who make Oregon so special.
