Progressive Talker Randi Rhodes started her journey in South Florida and going through the Air America mess and wound up back on Premiere in “syndication”
She creates the show from 3-6 PM, but most of the ten affiliates that I know of air the show later in the evening after AM stations reduce power after the sun goes down.
Her contract is up at the end of the year and it sounds like a divorce is likely (per Tom Taylor). There is some suspicion that she’ll wind up on Cumulus after the acquisition of Westwood One and Dial Global is complete.
That brings back the question of what Cumulus and the Dickey Brothers are going to do with the Progressive talk lineup. They have one driving priority because of their debt – cutting costs and increasing revenue. The Progressive talk lineup is not on any Cumulus stations. It seems unlikely Cumulus will change formats of their existing stations to pick up their shows that are anti-business and hate corporations that make profits. Stay tuned.
