CH HOLDINGS Talk KTRS-A/ST. LOUIS picks up UNITED STATIONS RADIO NETWORKS' LOU DOBBS show. KTRS brings DOBBS' affiliate list to over 125 stations in just under eight months on the air.
Also, evening host JOE HIPPERSON has exited KTRS. On his MYSPACE page, HIPPERSON posted a note reading "HIPP NIGHTS is no longer on the air at THE BIG 550 KTRS AM here in ST. LOUIS. It was one hell of a blow ... I'm not going to go on a big rant or bad-mouth anyone involved ... I have no reason to ... but TRUST ME -- HIPP NIGHTS was NOT let go because of the show itself. The upper brass wanted to cut costs ... that's it. In order to cut costs they got rid of a radio show that I LOVED doing and would do again in a heartbeat. I had so much fun talking with each of you night after night. YOU, the listener ... YOU, the caller ... YOU, the person who e-mailed ... ALL OF YOU: Thank you. You made the show what it was. If anyone wants to reach me (or HIRE ME), I can be found here on myspace or you can hook up with me directly be e-mailing email@example.com."
