WNTP/Philadelphia Adds Steve Deace As Mark Levin Moves To WWIQ
June 28, 2012 at 11:28 AM (PT)
With CUMULUS MEDIA NETWORKS' MARK LEVIN ticketed for a move across town to MERLIN MEDIA Talk WWIQ (!Q 106.9)/PHILADELPHIA on JULY 2nd, SALEM Talk WNTP-A is picking up STEVE DEACE's IOWA-based talk show for 9p-midnight (ET), also on JULY 2nd.
Meanwhile, DEACE's debut as a columnist for the DES MOINES REGISTER did not happen as scheduled, and DEACE says that after the announcement of his joining the paper, REGISTER Editor RICK GREEN first asked him to cut back from weekly to monthly, then told him via voice mail that the paper would "punt" on running the column at all. As a result, DEACE is running his columns on his own stevedeace.com website instead.
