This is permanent. I guess there's a demand for his kind of consumer
advice programming from a 30-55 age demographic. WSB's owner Cox Radio
uses syndicator Jones Radio Network to send Howard to 90 markets.
Since going nationwide in 1/99, Howard's growing network now includes some
key markets including #2 --LA(KFI) -- Boston, Houston, Atlanta, Detroit
and Seattle. He originates from Braves' flagship WBS AM 750/Atlanta weekdays
from 1 to 6pm(first hour is taped, the next two are heard live(taped
by WRKO) for the network feed and the last two are for the local
Atlanta market only).
