Well, this is not the choice of Entercom which owns WRKO.
Clear Channel wants an all talk station on their AM 1200 and they want it stocked with their own shows from their Premiere
Beck and Hannity are currently not on in Boston. They will be on the new station...and they already are running Coast to
Coast on AM 1200.
Entercom would have loved to keep Rush but not their decision I guess. The new station will be known as Rush Radio 1200
and the rushradio1200.com domain name is already registered
(was pointing to yahoo the other day)
No offense to the others, but everyone knows who the Boss is. Other AM radio shows exist to fill the time Rush isn't on.
Howie Carr list ping. No more Rush lead in to Howie starting Monday. In fact tomorrow will be the last day you actually will have Howie following Rush as Wed-Fri will be Avi Nelson
filling in for Howie.
Supposedly Rush is to debut on AM 1200 on Apr 1 but it could be earlier. See above for other stations carrying el Rushbo.
Entercom happens...to be losing out because Clear Channel/
Premiere wants Beck, Rush, Hannity, etc to be on their
I see, thanks for the clarification. At first blush it didn't make sense to adopt a show that has a lower demand over the higher one unless the cost was just so much less, but if they were losing anyway then it makes sense.
