Dr. Laura’s moralistic crusades get new slot

imageWe just knew something was missing from our daily grind, but couldn't quite figure out what it was exactly.

Thanks to a press release delivered to our virtual mailbox this morning, we now know: Radio gabber "Dr. Laura" Schlessinger. The reformed gay-hating personality -- third in popularity behind only radio jocks Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, no friends of gay equality -- now has a much-improved time slot in metro Atlanta. Newstalk 1160 announced Monday that it shifted Dr. Laura from her evening slot to a time when people might actually listen -- 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The mag takes a look at Premiere Party, which benefits CHRIS Kids programs for LGBT homeless youth, and the "Rehab" T-Dance, which isn't a benefit for anything other than promoter RC Searfoss.
