'RKO jettisons Hopkins, adds Ingraham

I speak of Reese Hopkins, who's out of his 10 am-noon slot effective tomorrow, and Laura Ingraham, the nationally syndicated yakker who'll take said time over. 

Boston Daily notes that Ingraham--whose exit comes amid broader cutbacks at Entercom, WRKO's parent company--probably won't be as...feisty as Hopkins. And an emailer to DQM notes that WRKO now has a lineup that consists of precisely two (2) local weekday hosts.

I never enjoyed Hopkins' on-air bombast--but then, I'm no talk-radio maven. Anyone out there care to explain why Hopkins' exit is a loss? (Other than the diminished localism, that is.)

Also: since Massachusetts is a Blue state--and Boston's a liberal city--why does Entercom insist on packing WRKO's line-up with conservative hosts?
