Ken Matthews Syndication Ends Abruptly


Talk Media Networks launched Matthews into syndication 7 months ago. As of last week, that relationship was over. Here’s what Talk Media Networks CEO Josh Leng had to say about the Matthews program.

Ken Matthews’ syndication agreement with Talk Media Network has been terminated. There will be no further comment.

We heard from one affiliate who said, “All the syndicator says is that Ken did something shocking so they ended his contract with him.”

The show continues to feed Best Of episodes and will conclude August 12th.

We were unable to reach Ken for a comment about what happened. Here’s what he posted to his Twitter feed five days ago:
Matthews is still listed on the WHP-AM (Harrisburg) website as host of the 3P-6P slot on the iHeart station. WHP is Matthews’ home base station.

Matthews was a frequent guest host on the late Rush Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated program over the years.


  1. If it was the Jewish Communist scum, Mr. Howard Stern “King of the Media” than it be fine and freedom of speech.

  2. Ken matthews you were the best, l just wish l know who your engineer was that day that helped to take you down. If it was art Shelby shame on you, and you are suppose to be a christian? Who ever did it is a disgrace to our country. God bless you ken Matthews, we all miss you so much.

  3. If Josh Leng made the decision to terminate Ken’s show, he should have been more open and honest about what exactly happened and how it happened. It seems he has lost his empathy for someone who is likely more popular and personable than he is.

  4. sounds like he was setup…Ken says he thought he was off air and he was reading excerps from hunter bidens coversation to his engineer. They were full of vular and profane language. He was terminated for that.

  5. I listened to Ken everyday. I can’t tell you how upset I have been since he is no longer on the air. 580 made a huge mistake letting him go. If he said something on a hot mic, mistakes happen. He isn’t the first. Don’t even turn 580 on anymore.

  6. I have to agree Rayon Ken being set up. Ken said many times that the out of control left would be coming after him and other conservatives. Much like they are doing to President Trump. Also, 580 is not the same. I went back to FM for my ride home from work.

  7. I loved to listen to Bob Durgen and when he stopped, I never expected to listen to someone I liked even better. Ken was the very best Our area has ever had on air. I have not listened to WHP since. Has Ken landed anywhere else yet?

  8. So can anyone say what transpired ? I’m guessing he said something to raise the ire of that clown running for Wolfs position ?
    Anything. ….? Am I close…?

  9. I certainly Wish someone would tell Kens loyal audience and supporters what happened??
    I am so saddened and disappointed not to be able to hear Ken from 3-6 pm anymore. I will not listen to WHP 580 either. Ken spoke the truth and was brilliant at it!!

  10. I didn’t always agree with some of his far right analogies but he was good at what he did and was so entertaining!!

  11. No more 580 for me. Ken Matthews was an excellent source of information and character. Shame on you for being part of that. You know he was set up.
