CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WGST-A/ATLANTA is going back to trying locally-hosted shows in mornings and afternoons, reports the ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION's RODNEY HO.
The station, which has struggled in the ratings for several years against local format dominator COX MEDIA GROUP News-Talk WSB-A-WSBB, has hired former PAPPAS Talk KMPH-A/MODESTO, CA host ROB JOHNSON for mornings, and TALK RADIO NETWORK host RUSTY HUMPHRIES will relocate to do a local show for WGST 3-6p (ET) while continuing his syndicated show for TRN 9p-midnight (ET).
Dropped in the move is DIAL GLOBAL's MICHAEL SMERCONISH; syndicated DAVE RAMSEY will be moved to evenings.
