After leaving Cumulus’ WLS-AM for Michael Savage’s new 3-6PM slot (Hannity did not renew with Cumulus across the board), Salem Communications unveiled a new lineup for WIND-AM 560 The Answer in Chicago, including the addition of Sean Hannity, and an expanded morning show with John Howell and Amy Jacobson. The new lineup will begin Monday, 1/6.
Bill Bennett’s Morning in America returns live to AM 560 in the 5am hour. Big John and Amy will follow with their fast paced Chicago morning show, 6am to 11am. Dennis Miller will remain 11am to 2pm, but will now be live for three hours. Sean Hannity will also be live, aired from 2pm to 5pm. Joe Walsh, who was moved into the 5pm hour last summer, will continue with a live and all Chicago show 5pm to 8pm. Michael Medved’s excellent rundown of the day’s current events will air 8pm to 11pm, followed by Dennis Prager at 11, and Hugh Hewitt at 2am.
“We couldn’t be more excited to join the fantastic lineup on AM 560 The Answer, and share our program live with the great city of Chicago,” said Eric Stanger, VP of Operations and Affiliate Marketing for The Sean Hannity Show.
“Sean Hannity is an ideal fit on AM 560 The Answer,” said Jeff Reisman, General Manager. “Sean is one of the premier news-talk personalities and his style will fit nicely with our outstanding lineup of local and national hosts.”
