More Changes To The Lineup At AM 560 The Answer/Chicago
March 25, 2015 at 4:10 AM (PT)
The previously reported additions of former crosstown CUMULUS News-Talk WLS-A host DAN PROFT as morning co-host and the syndicated DAVE RAMSEY show as evening fare at SALEM News-Talk WIND-A (AM 560 THE ANSWER)/CHICAGO are being accompanied by other changes as well, most of which will take effect on MONDAY (3/30).
The station is adding an hour of COMPASS MEDIA NETWORKS' "THIS MORNING WITH GORDON DEAL" for 4-5a (CT). After PROFT debuts as AMY JACOBSON's co-host on the renamed "CHICAGO'S MORNING ANSWER," effectively swapping places with predecessor BIG JOHN HOWELL (now at WLS), SALEM's MIKE GALLAGHER has been added for 9-11a (CT). DENNIS PRAGER's SALEM-syndicated show will move to 11a-2p, filling the gap left by the end of DENNIS MILLER's WESTWOOD ONE show. RAMSEY, as previously announced, will be added on JUNE 1st for 7-10p (CT).
GM JEFF REISMAN said, “DAN PROFT is the perfect addition to our lineup. As the only Talk radio station in CHICAGO dedicated to talking about politics, current events and breaking news, DAN PROFT provides the kind of analysis and insight that our audience has come to expect from us. CHICAGO’S MORNING ANSWER will be the go-to place in CHICAGO to get up to speed on what’s happening in the world each morning.”
SALEM MEDIA GROUP SVP/Spoken Word Formats PHIL BOYCE said, “MIKE GALLAGHER and DENNIS PRAGER are two of the top Talk radio show hosts in the country. They have earned the trust and respect of millions of listeners because each and every day they come prepared to inform their audiences on the stories that matter. We believe CHICAGO is the right place and now is the right time for MIKE and DENNIS to be featured prominently again.”
