Joe Madison to become an independent
By Robert "Rob" Redding Jr.
Sept. 17, 2007, 12:00 a.m. - Top-rated talk show host Joe Madison this week says he will change his political status to independent.
"Democratic candidates, with some exceptions and members of Congress, lack courage on the war, immigration, unemployment and under employment, increase prison population, Washington, D.C. voting rights, troop build up in Africa, Jena 6, etc," Madison told Redding News Review.
Madison, who is heard on District's WOL-AM, and nationally on XM 169 The Power, has been consistently ranked among the "100 Most Important Radio Talk Show Hosts in America" by Talkers, a broadcast trade magazine. He has built a solid record as a grassroots activist toiling for more than 30 years in the area of civil rights.

Madison, also known as The Black Eagle by his
listeners, also has challenged all the Democrats and Republicans
running for president to come on his program.
These forums they call debates are a joke, he said. No one can answer serious questions in a minute and a half. Therefore Im offering them three hours with my listeners. Unscreened phone calls from black American listeners, real questions from outside the Beltway, Madison said.
