I hope he gets a new radio program. With his huge audience, he'll get offers. But he's 70 and maybe had enough. I hope he comes back to radio. This is the stupidest move I've seen since CNN dumped Larry King for some unknown Brit, and the time slot has been ruined ever since.

Just don't send Piers Morgan back. Please.

Don't you think everyone should have to have a dose of Piers? Lets hope Abu Dhabi will offer him a job soon.

Candy, as to your points re: Boyles and the Ramsey case - unless he comes back on the air somewhere, the case has lost an advocate.

When the NRA (I think it was) had a petition asking the White House to deport him, there was a petition here begging the Home Secretary to refuse him entry if he was deported! So, in the interests of Anglo-American relations, I think we should send him to France: they already hate us.

On the Boyles point, I was wondering whether he mightn't write a book?

LOL on the Piers situation. Silly me for thinking whoever replaced LKL would have been an improvement! Truth is LKL had gone so soft toward the end, he never asked the hard questions anymore like he did in the beginning, so he was way past his prime anyhow when he vacated the time slot. They should have given a good news journalist the time slot, unless of course that is an oxymoron.

A book is a stellar idea for Peter Boyles, and it would certainly be one I would purchase.

The reason they're all soft is because of braizen killers like the Ramseys and that Duckett chick that sued for being asked a tough question. I don't know why they bother having suspects on anymore, they pay them for pictures and walk a tightrope with questioning and it's just an infomercial for killers looking to taint a jury. Makes me sick!

They still do it on the odd chance they will get another Scott Peterson who will shoot himself in the foot.

Hi LE:D
I'm beginning to think publicity in any case is bad..including guest appearances by main suspects. Seems every case that gets that much press always ends in favor of the perp (with the exception of SPeterson). I'm not sure how it works, but it's also a problem with internet discussion according to defense attys...we're helping them!

Hey RT,
I don’t want to get too far away from the Boyles subject, and I do agree that it does maybe ‘seem’ that way – but I really think it has to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. When you find a newsperson who is willing to keep a case in the public eye, especially in missing persons cases, it more often does more good than harm- citing the Elizabeth Smart case and many others. Many people hate NG for how she acts, but she is relentless in keeping cases in the public’s eye.

Also my thoughts on helping the defense are if you can help the prosecution even once, as was done in the VanDam case, it is a justifiable risk.

Boyles helped keep people informed, and I think we would be lucky if he gets back on the air. I don’t know what the big hullabaloo was all about, especially with a producer he worked with successfully for so many years, but the punishment seems harsh to me to remove him from the air, and I think Clear Channel made a mistake. JMO. Good to see you posting.

It's good to see you too LE:D
I see your point and as far as Boyles goes, bummer! Big bummer. I love him and NG and all that fight the good fight, but I see a sleazeball like Mark O'Mara use the internet and send out his minions to attack the boards and troll for whatever info they can use..I don't want to help the perp by giving ideas or whatever they're taking from us to bolster their case. Jose Baez let the cat out on that one and I've been wary ever since.
Boyles was probably let go over a censorship issue..isn't that usually the problem? Look at geraldo..hot on the heels of the Ramsey case, said something one day about what cops found in the garbage and the next day he was done talking case forever! Perps are taking the offense and suing..or threatening to sue. They've got balls these days, big ones!(like JR running for congress..really? wouldn't help LE but now he wants to rub elbows with law makers?) If only the news agencies would call their bluff and go to court for real!

I have not heard the official account. I have tuned in to Caldara and have heard nothing. Ditto with Michael Brown. I have not listened to Tom Martino. You'd think something would be anounced considering his muckraking type of radio journalism on local scandals.

I wonder if he has the legal rights to the recordings of his shows?

All this crap about "community" these days is just public posturing. Boyles was part of the local culture. Clear Channel and Dan Mandis owe us an explanation. SOON.

They won't say anything Brother Moon. Mitt Romney and Bain Capital own Clear Channel. It will be covered up, unless Boyles says something about it. Channel 9 was there when this happened. Why haven't they said anything about it?

Boyles should just take his huge audience elsewhere before he loses it.

It is a slippery slope isn't it?

JR running for anything was just a ploy to try and validate his 'reputation' and more importantly, his so-called innocence, and the result was just as laughable as the effort he put into it.

I agree on the ‘suing’ because we have become a sue-hungry population. The news agencies tried. They were the only thing to make the Ramseys back down in their efforts, and again it went towards them not wanting to be deposed.

From Westword on Friday, June 21, 2013

Reader: Peter Boyles is missed and we want him back
By Michael Roberts Fri., Jun. 21 2013 at 2:57 PM

The drumbeat continues on behalf of Peter Boyles, who was forced out from his longtime morning-show perch at KHOW following an incident with his longtime producer. Among the comments affixed to a roundup of the most memorable Peter Boyles posts on Westword is the following take, from a reader who wants the host to make a comeback.

RogerRam writes:
Sure kick a guy when he is down. Listening to Peter for so long I am sure he may be down, but he is not out. Peter did more for presenting the other side of the issue that just about anyone else in town. Love him or hate him it was always great radio.
I don't know why it appears that people that disliked what he had to say would listen to him, but from reading the comments apparently they did!

I listened to Peter for over 15 years and enjoyed and agreed with most of what was said. I sure miss him in the mornings and hope he is doing well.

Hopefully Westword will do an article on what he is currently doing and if he has any future plans that he can talk about. The fact is, no one cares about the incident that happened (OK a couple of wacko monkey butts probably do, but who cares about them). We just care about getting him back.
