Christine Craft out at KSAC


Christine Craft, who's been Sacramento's lone lefty radio talk show host, says she has parted ways with KSAC (1240 AM).

Craft, who has been on "vacation" since early September, had been scheduled to return this month. But she says she could not reach a contract agreement with station owner Paula Nelson. (Nelson could not be reached for comment today.)

Peter B. Collins, a syndicated host, took over Craft's 3-to-6 p.m. slot in September.

"Paula Nelson offered me a one-hour program starting in November if I can find sponsors," Craft says. "But I'm not really a salesperson. I'm a lawyer and a media person. So, I'm basically unemployed now.

"I have very much enjoyed three years of working at KSAC and getting the local progressive community organized and active. And I have nothing bad to say about Paula. I'm glad she gave me the opportunity."

Craft had been at KSAC for three years; she was the last remaining local talk show host on the station.
