Laura Ingraham is the most popular woman in political talk radio on the airwaves today. She takes on political and cultural issues with great skill and knowledge, couching them with wit and terrific bumper music!

Laura Ingraham is currently carried on 340 stations however, she has been off the air for the last two weeks because her syndicator, Talk Radio Network, has barred her from her DC studio after talks about a new contract obviously hit a big snag. Her attorney, Eric Bernthal, believes the silencing of Laura was simply a tactic in her contract negotiations. Her contract with Talk Radio Network ends in September and she is contractually barred from negotiating with other syndicators until later this summer.

In a statement on her website, Laura said:

“Rest assured, this absence is not of my choosing, nor is it health or family related. I am ready, willing and eager to continue the conversation we started seven years ago about politics and the culture. (Heck, if cancer couldn’t keep me off the airwaves for long, nothing will.) . . . I would never voluntarily abandon you during such a critical time for our country.”

Substitute hosts for Laura have included conservative pundits Tammy Bruce and Monica Crowley however fans want Laura back and are mounting a campaign directed toward her Syndicator. Michael Gaynor, a New York lawyer, had a few words for lost Laura fans and Talk Radio Network’s CEO, Mark Masters recently in an online column:

“Let Talk Radio Network’s Mark Masters himself know that we Laura fans consider keeping Laura off the air is utterly ridiculous and unfair.”

Though off the radio for now, she is temporarily hosting a 5 p.m. show on Fox News Cable Network called “JUST In.” She has been a regular contributor to Fox News for some time now and friends say that her temporary gig on TV is not related to her disappearance from radio.
