KNRS Will Add Hannity October 4th
July 2, 2010 at 11:40 AM (PT)
As expected, it didn't take long for CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KNRS/SALT LAKE CITY to announce that it will be the new home for PREMIERE's SEAN HANNITY in the market, airing liv 1-4p (MT) starting OCTOBER 4th. The announcement comes just one day after KSL BROADCAST GROUP Talk KSL-A-F confirmed the market chatter that it would drop HANNITY on OCTOBER 1st, with some reports attributing HANNITY's demise on the station to a conflict with new policies set forth by KSL CEO MARK WILLES.
HANNITY's arrival at KNRS will bump TALK RADIO NETWORK/TAKE ON THE DAY LLC's DR. LAURA SCHLESSINGER to sister Talk KACP-A (FREEDOM 570 AM).
"SEAN HANNITY is one of the biggest names in Talk radio and has a track record of success in UTAH since 2001. SEAN and his listeners will be right at home on 105.7 FM KNRS. He joins a stellar talk show line-up that includes GLENN BECK, RUSH LIMBAUGH and DAVE RAMSEY," said KNRS GM STU STANEK. "SEAN has a large, loyal following in UTAH, which is evident by his dominant ratings for over eight years. SEAN has also served as host of STADIUM OF FIRE and publicly debated former SALT LAKE CITY Mayor ROCKY ANDERSON. We're confident that SEAN's fans will embrace his show on 105.7 FM KNRS."
On the move of DR. LAURA to the AM dial, STANEK added, "DR. LAURA has been UTAH's moral advisor for well over a decade, and we're pleased to continue bringing her program to her many fans. DR. LAURA will continue to be heard live in her regular timeslot -- weekdays 1pm-4pm -- but she will now be heard on FREEDOM 570 AM."
