Laura Ingraham and Michael Savage find new homes in Philadelphia on suburban daytimer WFYL (1180)

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 Radio’s WPHT (1210). While TRN-syndicated Ingraham and Savage, as of today, are the heart of the new lineup at Alex Langer’s 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. There’s a local show until noon. Then Michael Savage, presumably his “pre-feed”, from noon-3pm.

After that it’s “The Union Edge” with Charles Showalter for an hour followed by TRN’s Jerry Doyle, 4-6pm and Michael Savage again, until signoff at sundown. WFYL – not to be confused with Salem’s 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.

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.

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.
