Roe Conn cuts an hour on WLS-AM

| No Comments

Beginning today, two of news/talk WLS-AM's (890) popular syndicated talk shows will begin an hour earlier. That means the locally-originating afternoon drive "Roe Conn Show" will now sign off on weekdays at 6 p.m. instead of 7 p.m. "The Sean Hannity Show" will air from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, and Mark Levin's syndicated show will run from 9 p.m. to midnight. According to Talkers magazine, Hannity is the second most-listened-to talk show host in America after Rush Limbaugh, whose syndicated show also airs on WLS-AM. Starting in early May, former WMAQ-Channel 5 reporter Amy Jacobson will join Roe Conn as his latest sidekick.

WLS-AM is owned and operated by Citadel Broadcasting, the nation's third largest radio group with stations in more than 50 markets.
