Rush Limbaugh To Return To WPHT Lineup On October 28th
October 15, 2013 at 4:34 AM (PT)
As expected, CBS RADIO Talk WPHT-A/PHILADELPHIA is picking up PREMIERE's RUSH LIMBAUGH for noon-3p (ET), and SEAN HANNITY's show wil also be returning on a tape delay basis 9p-midnight weeknights, starting OCTOBER 28th. Morning host CHRIS STIGALL made the announcement of LIMBAUGH's return to the lineup on the air and in social media this morning. STIGALL will remain in mornings 6-9a, with DOM GIORDANO 9a-noon and DICK MORRIS remaining in afternoon drive and RICH ZEOLI 6-9p.
The LIMBAUGH and HANNITY shows moved from WPHT to then-startup crosstown MERLIN Talk WWIQ (IQ 106.9) in JUNE of last year, but that station's sale to EDUCATIONAL MEDIA FOUNDATION and pending flip to Contemporary Christian made LIMBAUGH available in the market once again. LIMBAUGH aired on WPHT (and predecessor WCAU-A) twice before -- briefly in its early years in a weekend best-of version, then in 1999-2012) and on the old WWDB (1992-96) in the market before making the move to IQ 106.9.
