FROM LEFT TO RIGHT
When the San Francisco Chronicle decides to do a cover story in its Sunday magazine about a conservative talk radio host, you know conservatism is on the rise. After all, the Bay Area is the birthplace of liberal thought in the United States.
Melanie Morgan and Lee Rodgers are the west coast's version of Andrea Shea-King and Mark Vance. They go on the air daily and tell it like it is, and conservatives on both coasts take comfort in knowing they're out there fighting the good fight.
The 4000 word cover story focuses on Morgan's rise in conservative radio and describes how she made the conversion from a liberal to a conservative. Andrea's move to the conservative side was brought on by 9-11; Morgan's was more gradual. Her co-host, Lee Rodgers, played a major role in it. Her father was an ACLU attorney, so she had a lot of converting to do.
As the article points out, the road to radio popularity in the Bay Area was not an easy one. In fact, that's understating it a bit. Her troubles were highlighted in a made-for-tv movie. (Mark can't know this one too)
Morgan is the co-founder and Chairman of the pro-troop organization, Move America Forward, which is based here in Sacramento. She writes a column for WorldNet Daily and has a new book coming out on the 15th.
