WTVN/Columbus Adds Hannity, Drops News Hour
December 23, 2005 at 8:15 AM (PT)
Changes at CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WTVN-A/COLUMBUS, OH include the dropping of the station's "610 WTVN NEWSDAY" Noon news hour, shifting PREMIERE's RUSH LIMBAUGH to Noon (live) and also shifting afternoon host JOHN CORBY and evening host JOEL RILEY up an hour, and the addition of ABC RADIO's SEAN HANNITY for 9p-Midnight tape delayed. The moves take effect JANUARY 5.
The HANNITY addition, which replaces a replay of the overnight GEORGE NOORY show, fills a slot formerly held by STEVE CANNON, who left earlier this year. The station is also pushing ABC's PAUL HARVEY midday airing back from the Noon hour to 11:42a, meaning that WTVN will bail a few minutes early from GLENN BECK's PREMIERE-syndicated show.
