Clear Channel Tells Sarah Palin 'No Talk Show'

Sarah Palin is pursuing the idea of a talk radio show, reports say, but that’s not going to happen on Clear Channel, the country’s largest radio broadcaster.

Inside Radio reported earlier this week that Palin’s representatives were approaching radio broadcasters to see if the ex-Alaska governor could host a nationally-syndicated show.

Her lawyer Robert Barnett told the publication, “Many individuals and entities have expressed strong interest in Governor Palin. To date, she has not spoken with any of them, negotiated with any of them or made deals with any of them.”

But after the Inside Radio report, Paige Albiniak wrote on Broadcastingcable.com, “My own sources say much what they said when asked about a TV show for Palin: Don’t think so.”

While it is natural to assume Palin “would be a better fit for conservative radio than the less partisan world of syndicated broadcast TV, my sources say … Clear Channel has already passed on her,” Albiniak says.

She says the deal breaker for Palin is that radio execs doubt she would be able to maintain listener interest for three hours daily.

“While some of her recent remarks may indicate a talent for improvisation, anyone who’s listened to Rush Limbaugh … knows it’s the rare personality who can blab extemporaneously for 15 hours a week,” Albiniak writes.
