Hard to imagine many of the usual big guns of conservative talk radio off the air in a top 10 market, but Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity are still homeless after the back-to-local movement at CBS Radios WPHT (1210). While TRN-syndicated Ingraham and Savage, as of today, are the heart of the new lineup at Alex Langers 1,000-watt WFYL, licensed to King of Prussia in the western suburbs. Michael Klein in the Philadelphia Inquirer says the new WFYL schedule begins with the local Barry Papiernik at 7am, then proceeds to Laura Ingraham, 9-11am. Theres a local show until noon. Then Michael Savage, presumably his pre-feed, from noon-3pm.
After that its The Union Edge with Charles Showalter for an hour followed by TRNs Jerry Doyle, 4-6pm and Michael Savage again, until signoff at sundown. WFYL not to be confused with Salems same-market WFIL (560) was moved by Langer a decade ago from McConnellsburg, PA, about 160 miles away, to King of Prussia. The Philadelphia Board at Radio-Info.com reacts to the creation of another mostly conservative talk station in the City of Brotherly Love.
Station’s site; the Phil. skyline is seen at top but they’re really based NW of town
People in Phila might be able to get Hannity and Beck on 790 AM in Allentown.
They also might be able to get Hannity on 770 AM in NYC.
Love Ingraham, like Beck... can’t stand Hannity.
I’m in the Allentown area and I can’t barely get it. 1000 watts is junk. WABC 770 has 50000 watts. If someone held a CB mic up to a radio program the broadcast would reach more people. They need to use WFIL as a real talk station. It is some crappy religious station now with zero listeners.
Savage in Philly ping. (repeats of previous nite show?)
