What is Melanie Morgan's email address?
Here is Melanie Morgan's email address: melaniemorgan @ abc-sf.com
Since she said most of her emails are from liberal nuts, copy ol' Spocko and I'll publish a few here, I doubt you are all nuts, maybe just her supporters. spockosemail @ gmail.com
And don't bother to write Jack Swanson, the Operations Director at KSFO either. He is her husband. You probably won't have any luck writing KSFO's President, Michael "Mickey" Luckoff either. He developed the KSFO Hot Talk Format and protected and supported Michael Savage during his reign at KSFO.
You might want to write John Hare at ABC Radio, but since he hasn't fired Brian Sussman for calling for the death of 10 million Muslims, demanding a caller "Say Allah is a whore" or discussing cutting off an Iraqi's finger and then their penis, you might not have much luck with him either. I guess they are waiting for something REALLY offensive or someone REALLY important to complain.
IF you do write ABC Radio (currently owned by Disney) here are some emails.
John Hare, President ABC Radio

Mike Connolly, SVP sales

I do encourage you to write the advertisers at KSFO. I've been writing the advertisers on Brian Sussman's show (Morgan's sometimes co-host in the morning) to point out his outrageous statements.
A FEW POSITIVE WORDS
Quite a few smart advertisers don't want to support this kind of speech once they are aware of it. It just doesn't match their view of themselves. Of special note as a GREAT former advertiser is Bank of America. After hearing what Sussman was saying they pulled ALL their advertising from KSFO. Good for them. Most recently Mastercard pulled their ads from Sussman's show. I also want to acknowledge the good people at Borders Books, and Wendi Friesen at wendi.com the wonderful clinical hypnotherapist who doesn't like to be associated with this kind of talk either. Maybe Morgan should listen to some of her anger management tapes!
I don't track all the advertisers on Morgan's show, but here are two to get you started that I know about because another of Morgan's co-hosts, Officer Vic, read the ads on the air.
Chase Visa. Write Visa International. Write the people in charge of advertising.
Write Chevrolet not only about Morgan, but because they mock Chevy.
What is astonishing is not only do the hosts call for the death of editors and Muslims, they also MOCK THEIR OWN ADVERTISERS.
Now maybe it's just me, but when one of the hosts calls the cars that Chevy makes SHITTY, ON THE AIR, (audio link) I would think twice about advertising on that show. All morning they were calling the Spare the Air program "Scare the Air" and talking about activities to pollute the environment. Sussman of course mocks Chevrolet/GMs environmental goals by lumping them in with polluting leaf blowers. I'm sure Elizabeth A. Lowery, GM Vice President, Environment and Energy really doesn't appreciate her cars being categorized as polluters.

(Hey, the "Chevy = Shitty" audio clip during the WSJ segment is a twofer! Write the FCC about this one! Especially Pat who emailed Morgan and was mocked by Morgan for what she said in the paper. This will be one way to wipe that smug grin off her face as she ridicules you for being offended by her comments.)

My guess is ABC won't care until the revenue drops by 70%. Why? Because then it might impact the selling price that Citadel pays for buying the station. If I was Farid Suleman I'd demand a discount on a station that isn't performing.
Oh, and ABC folks, I've told you time and time again that you need to reign in or fire these people and that it will cost you if you don't.
Remember those new FCC rules and fines that the Republican congress just passed and that Bush signed into law? Well Officer Vic isn't going to have to pay the potential $315,000 fine for swearing. YOU ARE. Now I'm guessing that he won't get a $315,000 fine, but since there are never any consequences for the hosts, they don't care if they put a dent in your bottom line with future fines.
BTW, I just heard what "getting into trouble" is for the hosts. Sussman is referring to the email he gets! Well NOW I understand. I guess that means, no written warnings from his co-host's husband, no financial hits from Mickey Luckoff. So clearly they have no incentive to change as long as the ratings comes in the door. It must be those Unions that Sussman hates so much that are protecting him. He should get on his knees and thank that vengeful gun toting god he has created for his union contract lawyer!
Finally, since none of these people have "gotten into trouble" for their transgressions, you have no one to blame but yourselves when advertisers leave or fines come. Sorry, I tried to warn you. Don't blame the messenger. (But I know you will, it's what you do.)
