Report: Limbaugh Changing Affiliates In Philadelphia
April 9, 2012 at 3:18 PM (PT)
The NEW YORK TIMES is reporting that PREMIERE NETWORKS' RUSH LIMBAUGH will be on the move in PHILADELPHIA after CBS RADIO Talk WPHT-A/PHILADELPHIA got the word that PREMIERE is moving LIMBAUGH to "a new station" in the market. WPHT will air MICHAEL SMERCONISH's show live noon-3p to replace LIMBAUGH; SMERCONISH, based at the station and syndicated by DIAL GLOBAL, presently airs in afternoon drive at the station with one hour of live local material and the rest on tape delay. No date has been set for the change.
One obvious possibility for LIMBAUGH's next PHILADELPHIA affiliate is MERLIN's newly-acquired WKDN, flipping from FAMILY STATIONS' Religion format to a spoken word format overseen by former GREATER MEDIA Talk WBT-A-F/CHARLOTTE morning host AL GARDNER.
