Dunaway And Brown Not Moving From WSPZ After All

CITADEL does an about-face in BIRMINGHAM, and as a result, JIM DUNAWAY and RYAN BROWN aren't moving their afternoon show from Sports WSPZ-A (690 THE SPORTS ANIMAL) to Talk WAPI-A after all.
The BIRMINGHAM NEWS reports that the move was aborted due to contractual obligations for WAPI to carry SEAN HANNITY's show live 2-5p. The plan was to bump HANNITY to evenings on tape delay, but the station's deal with ABC RADIO NETWORKS required a live clearance, so DUNAWAY and BROWN will stay at WSPZ but lose an hour, airing 2-6p. WSPZ is adding the third hour of PREMIERE's JIM ROME show, which now airs 11a-2p CT on the station.
