Seattle talk radio host Todd Herman who rose to national prominence filling in for the late Rush Limbaugh announced that he was leaving Conservative Talk 770 KTTH effective Dec 1.

Herman made the announcement during his show Wednesday citing his desire to turn his current radio show into a podcast.  

“I don’t know who is going to be the new host in this daypart or the afternoon daypart, I am asking you to make certain that you give them lots of fair shakes,” Herman said.

Herman began his career at KTTH in 2015 before moving to its sister station KIRO Radio 97.3 in 2019. He moved back to KTTH a year later where he took over the morning show.

“The program that I hear in my mind is centered on God almighty with politics wound into it. What we do here is politics with God on the side — that’s not who I am anymore,” he said.

Herman becomes the second high-profile talent to announce his departure from Bonneville Seattle in less than a week. Monday, KIRO co-host Tom Tangney announced he was leaving next week.

YouTube and “The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show” are clashing over the radio show’s interview with U.S. Senator Rand Paul. 

The video platform has reportedly refused to upload their interview with Paul, leading Clay to take to Twitter to share his frustration.

“YouTube has refused to post our @clayandbuck interview with @RandPaul. Think about this for a moment: YouTube is disallowing a doctor and sitting U.S. senator’s interview to be shared. This is madness,” Travis tweeted

“Regardless of what you think of @RandPaul’s opinions, he is one of 100 democratically elected senators. It’s the very antithesis of democracy to not allow American voters to hear the opinions of their elected officials. YouTube should be ashamed.”

YouTube has not yet responded to Travis’ claims regarding their decision to block their interview with Paul from being uploaded to the website. However, for those interested in seeing the discussion with the U.S. Senator, Travis uploaded the video Rumble

Recently the video platform was in the news for taking down an episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience” following an interview with Dr. Robert Malone.
