NYC Radio: WOR 710 Unveils 'EITM", Rush And Sean

Clear Channel Media and Entertainment announced today an all-new 2014 programming line-up for New York’s News/Talk station WOR 710 AM.

Iconic radio talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, the top two radio talk show hosts in the country, will be heard on WOR beginning January 1 in mid-day, with Limbaugh broadcasting from noon to 3 p.m. and Hannity from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

“Rush and Sean have provided us a great opportunity to bring this unbeatable, one-two combination to WOR as the heart of our lineup in New York,” said Tom Schurr, President of Major Markets for Clear Channel Media and Entertainment.  “Talk format listeners are extremely loyal and dedicated to their favorite personalities; this new lineup enables us to both give them what they've told us they want to hear and to invest in a format we are deeply committed to.”

Elliot Segal
WOR listeners will also be able to enjoy the highly successful morning show “Elliot in the Morning” as part of the new line-up beginning on January 13.  Elliot Segal and his team, currently heard on Washington DC’s WWDC – DC101 – and Richmond’s WRXL, will bring their entertaining morning show to WOR in the new year, discussing sports, music, culture, news and entertainment topics weekdays from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m.

“Elliot in the Morning” will now be broadcasted from New York City and will continue to be heard on DC101 and WRXL.

“I'm excited to be coming back to New York, to a station with such a legendary history,” said Segal.   “We have built something very special in Washington, DC and Richmond and I'm beyond thrilled that the show will continue airing on DC/101 and XL-102. Now, WOR will be home to Elliot In The Morning and I couldn't be more anxious to get going.”

New WOR 2014 Line-up Includes:
  • Elliot in the Morning 6 a.m. – 10 a.m.
  • Mark Simone 10 a.m. – Noon
  • Rush Limbaugh Noon – 3 p.m.
  • Sean Hannity 3p.m. – 6 p.m.
  • Andy Dean 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
  • Dave Ramsey 9 p.m. – Midnight
  • The Joan Hamburg Show (Saturdays & Sundays) 10 a.m. - Noon
Departing the schedule are afternoon host Rita Cosby, KFI Los Angeles’ John & Ken, and Clyde Lewis.

“This is an incredibly exciting time for WOR,” said Joe Puglise, President and Market Manager for New York City at Clear Channel.  “Bringing America’s top two talk show hosts to our lineup, the entertaining Elliot Segal and his team to the mornings and becoming the flagship station for the Mets will allow us to create unprecedented marketing opportunities for our partners and unbeatable programming for our listeners.”

Tom's Take:  Obviously, EITM is an attempt to attract younger demos to WOR...still no word on how CCM+E will accommodate Mets baseball day games.
