After the elections happened, our local Progressive Talk station, "The Mic" 92.1 FM, suddenly stopped airing "The Pro Show ", our local morning show. Upon investigating why, I found out the station was set to be flipped on January 1st, 2007 from Progressive Talk to Fox Sports Radio.
Immediately, I went to start a petition, finding that one had just been started by fellow listener Valerie Walasek. I immediately signed it and got on the phone with everyone I could. I found every opportunity to help promote and push the effort to save The Mic along, assisting Valerie in any way I could imagine.
We won. The moment we did, we got emails from Columbus, Boston and Dallas, asking us for tips, support and just generally to congratulate us. We were an inspiration, they told us.
I knew we could help them. I knew that Madison and Phoenix, which stopped a flip and resurrected a flipped station respectively, were not isolated cases. I knew that if the nation's activists could find out where these things were happening, they, too could save Progressive Talk for their markets.
That was the birth of NonStop Radio.
