BUCKLEY Talk WOR-A/NEW YORK, which ALL ACCESS first reported adding LOU DOBBS in place of DENNIS MILLER for 2-4p in JANUARY, is also picking up PREMIERE's GLENN BECK for 9-11a ET, starting JANUARY 5.
The move bumps longtime midday host JOAN HAMBURG to 11a-1p, with DR. JOY BROWNE 1-2p. WESTWOOD ONE's BILL O'REILLY and "THE FOOD SHOW" with chef MICHAEL COLAMECO come off the schedule in the shuffle.
VP/GM JERRY CROWLEY said, “WOR continues to make our program lineup bigger, better and more diverse in every way, bringing our listeners the latest on issues affecting their daily lives. GLENN BECK’s focus on real-life issues and LOU DOBBS’s independent views on the economy are perfect additions to our world class lineup in these evolving times. They are both multimedia personalities whose advice and commentary commands the respect of all.”
