Shock Jocks for Kerry

Chris McGann at the Seattle-PI files a nice story about the possible impact of radio host Howard Stern’s full-throated endorsement of John Kerry. Couple of interesting tidbits:

  • Stern has about 300,000 listeners in the greater Seattle/Tacoma area.
  • A recent poll by the New Democrat Network found that 4% of voters nationally are swing voters who listen to Howard Stern.
  • Stern is promising to devote two full weeks of airtime to pro-Kerry/anti-Bush material.
  • Republicans of course insist that Stern has no influence whatsoever.

Good stuff.
