The Washington Post reports that syndicated talk show host Laura Ingraham, heard locally on WPTT (1360), has been locked out during a contract dispute.

According to Post media critic Howard Kurtz, Ingraham’s syndicator, Talk Radio Network, took her off the air over her objections.

Ingraham’s contract with the network expires in September. Network representatives would not comment to the Post.

(Editor’s Note: Kurtz’s story quotes what he calls “one popular radio blog,” by which he apparently means PBRTV‘s friends and one-time partners at DCRTV. There is no truth to the rumor that Kurtz gets a nosebleed if he has to credit DCRTV with breaking a story.)
