Boston Shuffle. Rush, George Noory to WRKO.
Michelle McPhee was on the air from 11 to 3 and the station also announced that McPhee, who rejoined WRKO in June, will team up with Todd Feinburg in mornings. “We are excited about our new lineup. Michele and Todd in mornings make us better and bringing Rush back to WRKO gives our listeners the best news talk in Boston,” said Jeff Brown, Vice President and General Manager/Entercom Boston. “WRKO has a tremendous track record of delivering real results for advertisers. These changes enhance our brand and what we can do for our clients.”
New to the WRKO team is Jeff Kuhner. Kuhner, who has been a regular contributor to the WRKO morning show and has filled in as a host for both Howie Carr and Michele McPhee, will anchor the one hour “Kuhner Report” from 11am to 12pm. Kuhner is a Washington Times weekly columnist, who has written for Human Events, National Review Online and Investor's Business Daily. He also serves as a fill-in host on Savage Nation.
Finally, WRKO announced that Coast to Coast AM with George Noory will return to the station overnights, holding down the 1am to 5am time slot. Heard by millions of listeners, Coast To Coast AM airs on more than 560 stations in the U.S., Canada and Guam, and is the most-listened-to overnight radio program in North America.
Here is the new WRKO lineup effective August 21:
5:30am to 9am Todd Feinburg and Michele McPhee
9am to 11am “The Financial Exchange” with Barry Armstrong
11am to 12pm “The Kuhner Report” with Jeff Kuhner

It's about time. Talk 1200's signal at 1 AM was aweful. Had to pick up a Connecticut, Philly or Baltimore station just to hear the show. WRKO dumped them but realize that the ratings on C2C are too good to lose that time slot.

Would you stop using a flattering photo of Limbaugh (as if there COULD be a flattering photo of him)just at the end of one of his weight-loss episodes and just before his most recent marriage? He's obese again, and it's just not his portrait in the attic that's showing the effects of his decades of spewing vitriol: his actual appearance reflects it too. Please use a screen-grab of his latest outbursts.
