I've heard him in the past on WGY-AM 810 Schenectady;  I
was out there again over the holiday and didn't hear the
station in the morning, but a local newsguy was doing their
post-Rush 3-to-7 pm show while announcing that the period
would be given over the Sean Hannity.  This relates to Boston
radio in that WGY had a track record of local talk in afternoon
drive going back to J.R., then Scott Allen Miller (as in
the cheap watery beer)
who is now on WRKO.  It appears that WGY is taking the path of
least resistance and going bird-talk rather than hire and
groom a local guy for a bigger market later.  The Hannity
switch should have happened already...he was already on Pittsfield's 
WBEC-AM.  Will WGY insist on area exclusivity, and weill WBEC
be hunter for a new talk show?  Jay Severin, call your office.
