Former CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WLW-A/CINCINNATI and CUMULUS Talk (now Rock) WFTK/CINCINNATI sports talker ANDY FURMAN may be back on the air in three weeks at crosstown CHRISTIAN BROADCASTING SYSTEM Talk WQRT-A (REAL TALK 1160), reports the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER's JOHN KIESEWETTER.
WQRT Regional Sales Dir. JAMEY SCHLEUE, who worked with FURMAN at WLW and WFTK, told KIESEWETTER, "I think there’s a large number of Cincinnatians who will be willing to tune in to hear what ANDY FURMAN has to say," SCHLEUE said, adding that he is trying to line up year-long sponsors to fund the show. "I’m trying to get together the money to be able to offer ANDY a job. I hope by the end of the week I can wrap up the deal." He also said that he needs to reach an agreement with TALK RADIO NETWORK to move DR. LAURA SCHLESSINGER's show out of the 5-8p slot.
