American Idol: Down to eight

The departure of Milwaukee "American Idol" finalist Naima Adedapo doesn't mean the end of this year's competition.

Nine finalists performed this week and one was sent home tonight after viewer votes were counted: Pia Toscano, 22, of Howard Beach, N.Y., a shocker, considering her talent.

Rounding out tonight's bottom three are Stefano Langone, 22, of Kent, Wash.; and Jacob Lusk, 23, of Compton, Calif.

WISN-AM pulling the plug on Glenn Beck

I've learned that WISN-AM (1130) is canceling Glenn Beck's daily radio show as of April 18.

The controversial TV/radio talker had been airing in the 8 to 10 a.m. weekday slot, with the third hour of his syndicated show running from 9 to 10 p.m.

There's no comment yet from WISN management, but the move is designed to accommodate Jay Weber's local morning show, which will air from 6 to 10 a.m., starting April 18.

The 5 a.m. hour will be filled by news director Ken Herrera and a news and commentary show called "WISN's Morning Briefing."

Beck's radio show is syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks which, like WISN, is owned by Clear Channel Communications.
