Official: Michael Savage Moving Into Hannity Slot

Fulfilling a prediction he made last month (See original posting, Click Here), top-rated radio host Michael Savage told his listeners Wednesday night  he will take over the prime afternoon-drive slot on Cumulus Media stations in January.

Opening his show with the announcement, Savage called it “the biggest shake-up in talk radio history.”

The 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern slot on Cumulus N/T stations is currently held by Sean Hannity, who has ended his relationship with the network.

Savage said he expects immediately to have five to six times as many listeners, as he does now.

He asked rhetorically, “Will this change of Michael Savage going to drive time change the course of the next election?”  Savage said that not even tea-party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has a mantra like “borders, language, culture,” and those themes are what he expects to emphasize leading up to the next election and beyond.

“The Savage Nation” is now heard from 9 p.m. to midnight Eastern.

Among the stations that’ll air Savage’s show live are WABC 770 AM New York; WLS 890 AM Chicago; KSFO 560 AM San Francisco; WBAP 820 AM Dallas; WMAL 630 AM Washington; and WJR 760 AM Detroit.
