I'm not a fan of Bob Grant, I think he's very rude to his callers. Therefore, I don't listen to him. However, I'm outraged at what has been done to him. A trade paper, evidently very respected, contacted him and said they were giving him an award for his long work in radio, which started in the 1960's. He said he was honored to receive this award. A few days later they called to tell him that they were rescinding the award.

This is not fair. As I said I am not a fan, but it's wrong to tell someone you are giving him an award and then a few days later (probably because of pressure from someone who does not like Bob Grant or his viewpoint) take back the award. This seems to be yet another slap at talk radio which is favored by conservative listeners.

For listeners who don't approve of Bob Grant or his viewpoint, just change the station.

When something like this happens, I doubt the value of the award and the validity of the newspaper.
