Entercom cuts Hopkins, adds Ingraham at WRKO

Recently WTKK added local talk weeknights in place of the tape delayed Laura Ingraham, with Curtis
Sliwa (though some wonder if Sliwa's show may soon go national? WTKK was simulcasting him with
WABC after the recent debates). Now Ingraham has turned up at WRKO, weekday mornings from
10 to noon, in place of Reese Hopkins. Hopkins has been cut (along with two producers for
Tom Finneran at WRKO, a producer for Greg Hill at WAAF, and some other staffers).


Not surprising given Entercom's business struggles lately. Now WRKO will have Ingraham live (at least
it's live rather than delayed by 13 hours) but loses a local connection mornings.

Just before his show ends every night at 7 pm, Howie Carr gives out the 'RKO phone number one last time...
even though there's no local talk till the next morning. And now no local talk from 10 am to 3 pm.
