Conservative commentator and former Republican strategist and adviser to President CLINTON's administration DICK MORRIS is joining CBS RADIO talk WPHT-A/PHILADELPHIA for afternoons 2-6p (ET).
MORRIS, who starts on APRIL 15th, is replacing MICHAEL SMERCONISH, who is exiting the station and DIAL GLOBAL syndication to join SIRIUS XM RADIO's P.O.T.U.S. channel.
“DICK is a great addition to our lineup of live and local personalities, and provides a voice that will raise the audiences’ interest in what’s happening in politics today,” said SVP/Market Manager MARC RAYFIELD. “As someone who isn’t afraid to express his opinions or make bold predictions, his show won’t just be a win for PHILADELPHIA and WPHT -- it’s a win for radio.”
OM ANDY BLOOM said, "DICK is among the most recognizable names in political commentary. His transition into radio is an obvious next step, and I have not been this excited about introducing a new show to the industry in a long time. Radio provides an excellent forum for DICK to showcase his insight and knowledge of politics. The show will be provocative, intelligent and a must listen.”
"I love radio which provides the time necessary to discuss the important issues,” said MORRIS. “The calls are from real people -- and you get to do the interrupting!"
