CULVER COMMUNICATIONS Talk WECK-A/BUFFALO will move local 6-9p ET evening show host BRAD RITER to 4-7p ET weeknights starting MARCH 2 to fill the gap left when WESTWOOD ONE"s "THE RADIO FACTOR WITH BILL O'REILLY" leaves the air. The station is also expanding midday show "REASON WITH SCOTT LEFFLER" from 10-11a to 9-11a weekdays, beginning JANUARY 26.
OM TOM SCHUH said, "We'll miss BILL O'REILLY on the radio. But we're extremely excited that his departure opens up the opportunity for us to present more live, local two-way talk. BRAD and SCOTT have both earned the opportunity for shows in more prominent dayparts. We're glad to reward them, and our listeners, with another step in our development as WESTERN NEW YORK's true hometown station."
