Mike Slater, you will be sorely missed

Mike Slater announced this morning that he will be leaving WTJS in Jackson and moving to a station in San Diego. Mike Slater, you will be sorely missed.

Everyone talks about "new media" but in fact Talk Radio has always been the foundational media for the conservative resurgence and Mike Slater is, single handedly, responsible for the resurgence in West Tennessee. I am sure he would say "no, its been a team effort" but I would strongly disagree. Mike Slater is exhibit A for the power of the individual. He single-handedly changed the political landscape in West Tennessee and all of us owe him a huge debt of gratitude.
