WESTWOOD ONE's MARK LEVIN is changing LOS ANGELES affiliates, moving from a tape-delayed clearance 6-9p (PT) on CUMULUS News-Talk KABC-A to a live 3-6p clearance on SALEM News-Talk KRLA-A (AM 970 THE ANSWER). The addition of LEVIN bumps SALEM's HUGH HEWITT to 6-9p on KRLA.
SALEM SVP of Spoken Word Format PHIL BOYCE said, "Rarely do you have the chance to add somebody of MARK's quality in market #2, and we decided it was an opportunity we could not pass up. HUGH HEWITT is also a class act so running these two back to back makes this lineup even stronger."
KRLA Dir. of Programming CHUCK TYLER said, “Getting MARK LEVIN has been on my bucket list for years. What a team!”
LEVIN said, “It's an honor to join the wonderful lineup at KRLA. I know my great listeners, who include two of my biggest fans in the LA area (my kids, who live and work there!) will appreciate hearing the show LIVE, too!”
