Bob Davis is out at AM 1130. His departure from the station comes a couple of months after his former co-host, Tom Emmer, left the station to focus on his bid to become the next Michele Bachmann.

According to the All Access Music Group, Davis's departure from the station was "amicable." Evening hosts Jack Tomczak and Ben Kruse will cover the time slot formerly occupied by Davis & Emmer on an interim basis.

This spring, Davis took some serious heat for telling Newtown shooting victims to "go to hell" during a rant about how gun control advocates "trot out the victims" to score political points. He apologized (sort of) and some advertisers stopped supporting the show, but he managed to keep his job -- at least for four more months.

It was because after Tom Emmer left, the ratings declined. It wasn't because people who don't ever listen to conservative talk radio wanted him off the air; A) they don't listen to conservative talk radio ANYWAY B) they've been trying to ban conservative free speech for YEARS C) liberals can't afford most of the products advertised on conservative talk radio, (their  listenership has an average hh income of over $150k and D) If they caved to liberal groups each time they threw a hissy fit, then there wouldn't be any talk radio at all.

He looked like a liberal, was angry like a liberal and shouted and screamed like a liberal - good riddance you progressive in disguise.

Sandy Hook was about as real as the 19 Imaginary terrorists. God, what a nation of fools!

It's about time. He showed his true colors. One big coward. No courage at all.

I would think that photo alone got AM1130 seriously thinking about cutting ties with him... It's an image I can't get out of my head.

Thank god, if there is one. Fall asleep to a peaceful and enjoyable program called Coast to Coast. Wake up to this lunatic screaming about a bunch of Shiite. Next.

@LGuilly  If my child was killed in something like that, I would have driven to where ever this show as produced, and kindly challenged him to say that to my face. Anyone that could say such a thing to defend his beliefs shouldnt be afforded free speech, because he's talking about something involving kids dying. And for you to act as if you support what he said (I know you didn't say that, but you certainly are defending him) you shouldnt be allowed to have kids, be around kids, and should get your ass kicked on a daily basis.

Brandon - turn off Duck Dynasty and wake the F'k up. I bet you don't even know where the word America originated from. How did I know this? Because Americans are IDIOTS. Oh, and I hope everyone in my family dies today too. Earth is a prison.

@brandonb0@jsmappyWhy leave the country ?

Just because there is corruption, murder, and vast conspiracies, does not mean that heroes have to leave their homeland.

If every person trying to do good left every place that had evil, the world would be a far worse place.

@jsmappy @brandonb0  And if your so paranoid and crazy that everything has to be a conspiracy, why not leave? I mean, its pretty easy to just move somewhere else, right?

@jsmappy @brandonb0  LMAO. Thanks for assuming you know me, and then being so very wrong. My father was a full blooded Sioux indian - and I certainly don't need to know where the term 'america' came from, just that this country was built on the murder of my people. Don't get me wrong, I do love this country, but I know my past, and the past of my race. I
