CHICAGO - Chicago's WLS 890AM is making big changes to the once-conservative leaning talk show lineup, Chicago's media reporter Robert Feder writes Thursday.
Federer says WLS is pulling the plug on longtime syndicated radio star Rush Limbaugh.
Last Thursday after their morning show, John Kass and Lauren Cohn were notified they had just done their last show. WLS extended the invite to Cohn to audition to partner with the new morning host Big John Howell. Howell came over from WIND 560 AM earlier this year, after morning host Dan Proft resigned and his partner Bruce Wolf was let go.
Chicago area conservatives are indicating on social media they're headed for Salem Broadcasting's WIND 560 AM, where Proft has been guest hosting with Amy Jacobson in the mornings, with former Congressman Joe Walsh in the evenings.
