Why are there so few women on talk radio? Is it that women are less likely to possess the conservative leanings that dominate the medium? Are they simply uninterested in having their voices heard by the vast talk radio audience? Not likely. “If there is one explanation that seems to resonate, it may be that women are out of fashion in an industry that puts a premium on constant aggression and throbbing neck veins.” Put another way, talk radio’s audience is unapologetically sexist, and has no interest in a female host who acts as boorishly as most of the men currently on the air.
