Conservative talk radio host Jason Lewis quit his show during the middle of his program Thursday evening, then he posted to his Twitter feed, "Today I left the radio biz for something better." Clear Channel Minneapolis Market Manager Mike Crushman tells TwinCities.com that Lewis told him two months ago he intended to retire Aug. 1. "He decided not to go public with it until today. I think he is serious about it. I hope he is not. He is one of the best talk show hosts I have ever worked with or listened to."
Lewis was heard on on Clear Channel's KTLK 1130 AM in Minneapolis. Crusham said the station is planning on running the "Joe Pags Show," from WOAI in San Antonio, starting next week in Lewis' KTLK time slot. Lewis is syndicated by Genesis Communications. The post to Lewis' Twitter feed included a link, and explanation why he left radio, to the website Galt.

Jason is the best hands down. I haven't found a wrong prediction over the last 11 years I've been listening. He's full of facts that intimidate some people. If you don't like common sense, you probably didn't like Jason.

This is a loss for listeners who were in effect students in the class room of what freedom and personal accountability really mean.

I listened to parts of his monologue before he walked off the air, and all I can say is wow. Here is a person I don't want to know. Self-centered and certain about everything.
