CUMULUS has moved WESTWOOD ONE's MICHAEL SAVAGE from News-Talk WBAP-A/DALLAS to sister News-Talk KLIF-A/DALLAS and is going local in SAVAGE's former WBAP slot with the return to the market of veteran talker RICK ROBERTS for 2-5p (ET).
ROBERTS has been most recently hosting mornings at iHEARTMEDIA News-Talk KTOK-A/OKLAHOMA CITY; he hosted at WBAP competitor KRLD-A/DALLAS before a stint in SAN DIEGO at KFMB-A.
In addition, KLIF is adding the syndicated LAURA INGRAHAM for 11a-2p, replacing WESTWOOD ONE's JONATHON BRANDMEIER and has replaced "MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT," formerly hosted by ART BELL, with PREMIERE's "COAST TO COAST AM WITH GEORGE NOORY." To clear room for SAVAGE, local afternoon host GRANT STINCHFIELD has moved from 3-7p to 5-8p.
