Frequent talk radio guest host DOUG URBANSKI is set to launch his own syndicated daily show via WESTWOOD ONE starting JANUARY 24th, replacing FRED THOMPSON who ends his close to two-year radio run on the 21st.
URBANSKI, a film and stage producer, has filled in for RUSH LIMBAUGH, MICHAEL SAVAGE, DENNIS MILLER, BILL O'REILLY, FRED THOMPSON, LAURA INGRAHAM and others.
"When you find someone as schooled in talk radio as DOUG URBANSKI, with a resume so unique that it can't be matched by anyone else in the business, that spells 'winner' to me," said WESTWOOD ONE founder NORM PATTIZ when the show was announced. "His experiences are so varied and unique that his conservative, yet very independent, approach will be truly special. Add to that his charm, and the fact that he is genuinely funny, and you can see why we're so excited about this project."
