The official replacement for RANDI RHODES in afternoons at AIR AMERICA RADIO is attorney and former CITADEL Talk WABC-A/NEW YORK morning co-host RON KUBY, who will take over "AMERICAN AFTERNOON" on MONDAY (6/9). KUBY was let go in advance of DON IMUS taking over mornings at WABC from KUBY and CURTIS SLIWA (who remained at WABC); RHODES exited AAR earlier this year in a controversy over remarks about HILLARY CLINTON and GERALDINE FERRARO during a live appearance in SAN FRANCISCO and immediately joined NOVA M RADIO in competition with AAR in the same time slot.
"We're glad to have such a highly experienced and popular radio personality such as RON on our network," said AAR Chairman CHARLIE KIREKER. "Considering his history of strong ratings, entertainment value and thought-provoking opinions, he will have wide appeal to audiences, affiliates and advertisers nationwide."
"I am delighted to be joining AIR AMERICA's powerful voices in these challenging times," said KUBY. "We'll have the news, analysis, opinion, calls and hopefully a few things that listeners haven't thought of yet, or don't want to think about."
