CBS Radio’s Philly talker 1210 WPHT announced the return of Rush Limbaugh to its weekday talk line-up. Effective 10/28, The Rush Limbaugh Show will join the station Noon-3:00PM. Limbaugh debuted on 1210AM in July 2000 and remained on the station until June 2012, when he moved over to Merlin Media’s crosstown talker WWIQ-FM. Merlin has since sold the talker to EMF (Educational Media Foundation), which will be flipping it back to a Christian format.
Simultaneously, WPHT announced Sean Hannity (also currently on WWIQ) will also return to the station’s line-up, effective 10/28. The Sean Hannity Show will air from 9:00PM-12:00Midnight.
Said SVP/Market Manager for CBS Radio Philadelphia Marc Rayfield: “We couldn’t be more pleased to bring Rush and Sean home to WPHT. They are leaders in the format and the standard by which talk radio is measured. Rush will be the lead-in for Dick Morris who has been developing a strong program the past six months.”
Effective October 28, the line-up will be as follows:
5:30-9:00AM Chris Stigall
9:00-12:00Noon Dom Giordano
12:00Noon – 3:00PM Rush Limbaugh
