    A trend in radio: news, sports, and talk stations have been simulcasting on, or moving to, FM, or new talk stations have been established. Today Rush Radio 94.7 in Gifford, FL debuted. It had been Star 94.7, a rhythmic adult contemporary station, I think. They have a local show called The Morning Rush, then Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, and Jason Lewis. Clear Channel has been launching Rush Radio in places like New Orleans and Boston (in Boston they later renamed themselves Talk1200 but kept the lineup); sometimes on FM, sometimes on AM (in Boston their two FM stations kept playing...

    The new “Rush Radio” station has taken off, nearly quadrupling its audience since flipping from a Spanish music station to a conservative news talker last month. WXKS-AM (1200) - which snagged Rush Limbaugh from right-wing rival WRKO-AM (680) - fetched a 1.1 share of all Boston listeners older than 6 during the month of March, according to Arbitron ratings released yesterday.
  • Jeff Katz coming to WXKS AM (Rush Radio Boston 1200)

    Clear Channel has announced the host of the morning show on Rush Radio 1200 to be Jeff Katz. It seems like CC actually put some thought into this one. He has been on the air in Boston before on WRKO and he has had many other major market gigs (KNEW in San Francisco and WPHT in Philadelphia) and has most recently been on WFTL in Ft. Lauderdale and, before that, WBT.

    Q: Why is Howie Carr walking into the WRKO studios very slowly today? A: Well, there's no Rush... *That groaner, which neatly sums up the big radio news this week from eastern MASSACHUSETTS, comes to us courtesy of fellow radio observer (and WMWM weekend host) Bob Nelson, who's been as absorbed as anyone in the long saga of Clear Channel's launch of a new talk radio station in Boston. After spending many years and many hundreds of thousands of dollars moving suburban WKOX (1200 Framingham) into Boston, Clear Channel initially moved fairly slowly on changing the AM station's format, leaving...

    Republican consultant Charley Manning is replacing the nationally syndicated Rush Limbaugh on WRKO radio starting Monday. Jason Wolfe, program director for WRKO-AM (680), confirmed to the Herald that Manning will take over the station’s weekday noon to 3 p.m. slot. Manning, who has served as a campaign adviser to former Gov. Mitt Romney, emphasized that his new show, “The Charley Manning Show,” will be local. The GOP strategist said his show will “touch on all of the local issues that everybody is talking about, but with a special look at politics.” “I’m looking forward to really getting into politics, especially...
