Conservative Radio Host Michael Smerconish Replaces Don Imus On MSNBC
Responsible conservative Philadelphia lawyer, turned talk show host, Michael Smerconish, has replaced THE DON IMUS SHOW on MSNBC. While Smerconish is decidedly more conservative politically than Don Imus, he is a respectful man, with none of the thug appeal of many right wing radio hosts who specialize in rudeness and abrasive on-air styles.
Smerconish also is a dry and nearly humorless man compared to the immensely funny content on THE DON IMUS SHOW it replaced. Smerconish does manage to attract many of the important and newsworthy guests that Don Imus would attract. And Smerconish's discussion is always civil and polite, but certainly lacks to comedy value of Don Imus.
Smerconish also attracts others much like himself. nearly colorless, but respectful and decent people. Even though Smerconish has sometimes filled in for the likes of Bill O'Reilly, nothing in his character is anything like the bullylike O'Reilly in any way.
Will the public warm to this who used to be fans of Don Imus. I personally doubt it. But Smerconish and other civil persons like this do elevate the airwaves. But I miss Don Imus myself. But at 4 or 5 in the morning, with little good on, even Smerconish looks pretty good.
