WRKO drops Coast to Coast for Howie re-runs, show moves to 1200



After running Coast to Coast for many years, WRKO AM 680 has dropped it (shown: host George Noory) in favor of re-runs of Howie Carr, weeknights from 1 to 5 am. This may have to do with the fact that CTC's syndicator, Premiere, is allied with Clear Channel, owners of the new WXKS AM 1200 which will debut in April. It stands to reason that WXKS will "clear" Premiere shows like Coast to Coast, Glenn Beck, and Sean Hannity on its new talk station. Premiere's Rush Limbaugh is run
on WRKO but eventually could find its way to the new AM 1200, too.

Coast to Coast has also gotten dropped from WABC in New York,
in favor of the new syndicated Doug McIntyre show.

The conspiracy theory/paranormal talk CTC is known for (including its weekend versions with original host Art Bell) may still be found on various other stations across the nation.

Glenn Beck may be gone from WRKO, too; he is still listed on "Weekend Shows" but the lineup for next Sat lists "Rusty Humphries" in the Sat night slot that had been best of Beck

UPDATE: On Feb 12, 2010, Coast to Coast began airing on what is now WKOX AM 1200
(the calls will switch to WXKS eventually). They have a station ID saying "WKOX
Newton, Boston's new home for Coast to Coast". For now the top of hour is a bunch of public service announcements rather than a newscast.

Comments:
I listen to Coast to coast 7 nights a week. Im really bummed out!
 
George Noory's demons have nothing on Howie.
 
Some skywave stations like WTIC 1080, WTAM 1100, and WBT 1110 should have CTC (WWVA 1170 too). When 1200 changes to talk you'll have them but I don't know if it'll come in well at night for you
 
So does anyone know if coast2coast is definetly going to be aired on 1200...I need my mind eased here.
ps. Wrko and howie carr suck.

I think EVERYTHING about AM1200 is speculation.... We should know more in the next month and half.

Someone on boston-radio-interest said they got a note from George Noory saying "we will be back on in Boston in April". Given the Clear Channel/Premiere relationship it would prob have to be 1200
 
UPDATE: 1200 began running Coast to Coast tonight
 
That stinks!
 
Depends where you are; some are saying they're picking up C2C better from 1200's Newton stick (WRKO's is in Burlington, goes north/south after dark)
 
Howie re-runs already gone. Now it's the new Red Eye show with Doug McIntyre
 
The Herald says 1200's lineup will be 6 am local show, 9 am Glenn Beck, noon TBA ("PD was mum on Rush Limbaugh"), 3 pm Sean Hannity,6pm
Jason Lewis (out of Minn.), 9 pm TBA,
Mid Coast to Coast
