Could you blab for three to four hours?
That seems to be the reason Clear Channel has reportedly passed on offering Sarah Palin her own syndicated radio program, according to Broadcast & Cable’s Paige Albiniak.
“The main objection to Palin as radio talk-show host is that she would have to hold forth for three hours a day,” Albiniak wrote. “While some of her recent remarks may indicate a talent for improvisation, anyone who’s listened to Rush Limbaugh or Thom Hartmann or Don Imus or Howard Stern or even Ryan Seacrest knows it’s the rare personality who can blab extemporaneously for 15 hours a week.”
As several online outlets have noted, Palin's attempt to join the media is ironic considering she’s carved out a reputation blasting it. Of course, the ultimate irony would be if she started a blog, since she really despises that lot.
