Local news radio personalities across the country took to Twitter during Tuesday’s heated debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

“Who has used more harsh language in this debate? Biden by a mile,” tweeted KTAR host Larry Gaydos. {Biden} Called Trump a clown and told him to shut up. Biden called Trump the worst president we’ve ever had.”

Trump pressed Biden about his son’s dealings with China, Russia, and Ukraine. At one-point moderator Chris Wallace said that he was having trouble following the President.

“If you managed to watch the entire Presidential debate, congratulations,” a tweet from KGO’s Chip Franklin read. “You are a stronger human than I.”

Howie Carr host of the Howie Carr Show used his social media to rip Fox’s Chris Wallace who moderated the debate. “Is it too late to get Joe Rogan as moderator for the next debate?”

WCCO’s Chad Hartman called the debate “awful” and said the President’s interruptions were “embarrassing and typical of his bullying behavior.”

The debate was labeled the most tumultuous presidential debate in recent memory. WSB’s Erick Erickson reacted with astonishment as the insults flew, “I don’t know what I’m watching, this is something.”

“Thank God it’s Over,” said WIBC’s Chicks on The Right.

The next presidential debate will take place on Oct. 15 in Miami with the final debate on Oct. 22 in Nashville, Tenn.

A report from Sara Fischer of Axios claims Audacy has hired bankers to explore a sale of Cadence13, one of its two podcast studios.

The company faces potential delisting by the New York Stock Exchange if its price remains at under $1 per share. The NYSE gave Audacy notice that it had six months to increase its price or face the delisting. Shares closed Friday at an all-time low of 39 cents.

Audacy purchased a stake in Cadence13, then called DGital Media, in 2017. It then purchased the remaining shares of the company in 2019, placing its valuation at approaching $50 million.

Fischer reporters Audacy would seek to sell Cadence13 at nearly double that $50 million valuation.

Cadence13 has recently launched several new podcasts, including shows by Stephen A. Smith and former NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Dirty Mo Media.

In addition to Cadence13, Audacy also owns two other podcast studios, 2400Sports and Pineapple Street Studios.

An Audacy spokesperson told Axios “we don’t comment on rumors of this nature”.

Dana Loesch: CNN Unfair to Question Ron DeSantis On Lack of Evacuation Plans

The media is trying to create a Hurricane Katrina narrative around Ron DeSantis so they can kneecap him and not only reduce the enthusiasm around him Republican voters have around him as we go into the midterms but also hurt him ahead of any potential 2024 Presidential run.”

Dana Loesch thought a question from a CNN reporter to Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) about a Florida county refusing to issue mandatory evacuations until the day before Hurricane Ian made landfall was unwarranted, going as far to say the media was attempting to give the Governor his “Hurricane Katrina moment”.

“That is the big push from the left, through the media, and the media is hitting first, so I’m anticipating (California Governor Gavin) Newsom and others to follow as soon as they think that media has seeded the ground enough to make such an accusation towards DeSantis,” Loesch said.

“This is what’s weird. The media is trying to create a Hurricane Katrina narrative around Ron DeSantis so they can kneecap him and not only reduce the enthusiasm around him Republican voters have around him as we go into the midterms but also hurt him ahead of any potential 2024 Presidential run,” The Dana Show host posited.

“Do you remember — let’s go back to Hurricane Katrina for a moment — when the media was not going after a Governor but they were blaming George Bush for the actions of the Governor? So if a Democrat is in the White House — and they’re President — then it’s ok to criticize the Governor. But if it’s a Republican President in the White House then it’s the President not the Governor (who receives blame)?”

Loesch concluded by saying the media is trying to damage DeSantis for actions made by other election officials, noting Lee County is roughly 130 miles south of where the storm was forecasted to make landfall.
