August 7, 2012 at 7:18 AM (PT)
As ALL ACCESS noted in its coverage of RUSH LIMBAUGH and "COAST TO COAST AM"s return to the lineup at ENTERCOM Talk WRKO-A/BOSTON, the status of the shows' current home, crosstown CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WXKS-A (TALK 1200)/BOSTON is unclear, but ALL ACCESS has confirmed the exits of morning host JEFF KATZ and afternoon host JAY SEVERIN, along with most of the station's local staff. Market rumors have the station remaining Talk but possibly picking up the liberal syndicated talk shows that have been dropped at crosstown BLACKSTRAP brokered Talk-Sports WWZN-A, but for now, PREMIERE's ANDY DEAN (on a next-day tape delay) and SEAN HANNITY are airing in KATZ and SEVERIN's former slots. LIMBAUGH and "COAST TO COAST AM" will make the move to WRKO on AUGUST 21st.
KATZ, the veteran talker whose resume includes stops at WBT-A-F/CHARLOTTE, WPHT-A/PHILADELPHIA, KXNT-A/LAS VEGAS and KSTE-A/SACRAMENTO can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. SEVERIN advised his Twitter followers to "Stay tuned, okay?"
