Posted on 05/19/2014 7:27:16 AM PDT by raccoonradio
Townsquare Media Oldies 1160 WOBM Lakewood Township/1310 WADB Asbury Park, NJ has dropped the format and shifted to Conservative Talk. Morning hosts Bob & Marianne Levy will remain with the station in mornings from 5:30 to 9:00 as will the brokered talk shows heard in the 9:00 hour. The new additions to the station are Glenn Beck from 10am-12pm, Rush Limbaugh 12-3pm, Sean Hannity 3-6pm, and Todd Schnitt in evenings.
The Monmouth/Ocean market was one of the few in the country without a locally based syndicated talk outlet. Townsquare sister New Jersey 101.5 WKXW Trenton regularly leads the market, but listeners to syndicated programs had to rely on New York or Philadelphia stations. As Monmouth County is embedded in the New York market, in the past syndicators wouldnt want a local signal competing with their New York flagships with the same programming.
>>WOBM-AM is proud to be adding the talents of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck to our lineup. Starting today at 10 a.m, youll be treated to the highest-rated talk shows that are heard all over the country. Broadcast on more than 600 radio stations nationwide, The Rush Limbaugh Show is one of the most listened talk shows in America. The Sean Hannity Show is heard by roughly 13.5 million listeners a week. The Glenn Beck Program is the third highest-rated national radio talk show among adults ages 25 to 54. And lets not forget the Bob and Marianne Morning Show, which will be heard from 5:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. Youll still be able to hear your favorites such as The Preferred Company with Joel Markel and Marianne Levy, The Financial Physician and The Island Financial Advisors.
I am right in the heart of both stations - good to know - thanks!
Huge win for the area.
Note: no Michael Weiner(Savage)! They must want to survive.
Glenn Beck has been shut out in NY and Philly a lot so this switch will get him into some of those market areas on the fringes.
Bob Levy is not conservative. His Sunday morning talk show, Topic A with Bob Levy, is left of center. It is heard on WOBM FM 92.7. Huge senior population in Ocean County, NJ. He drips liberalism with every sentence. Openly despises Rush, Hannity, Palin etc. I’m sure he’s not Happy. Along with his regular idiot liberal callers.
