Re: Sean Hannity wins syndication deal

I wonder what this does to the ABC talk syndication line-up.  (Mitch Albom,
Howie Carr, etc.)

Howie is fed to affiliates by ABC in aft-drive....Do you think they will
two aft-drive shows?

Also, ABC owns the Hannity effort.....while Entercom owns the Howie
effort...does this have a bearing...?


WABCFOXNEWSCHANNEL headliner Sean Hannity has joined the ranks of media
royalty with a new 5-year radio syndication deal -- being described as one
of the biggest rollouts in the history of the medium.

ABC RADIO is on the verge of launching Hannity's New York City-based
afternoon drive broadcast in major cities, network sources tell the DRUDGE
