Atlanta Radio: Talker Eric Erickson Gets New Deal At WSB

Eric Erickson
Conservative radio host Erick Erickson has signed a new, three-year agreement with Cox Media Group Atlanta’s WSB  750 AM / 95.5 FM that will keep him on-air through 2020.

Erickson joined WSB in 2011 and moved into a prime daypart in less than one year.

“We are excited to have Erick as part of our radio family for the long term.  He came into radio having never expected to be on radio and has thrived,” said Pete Spriggs, Director of Branding and Programming for WSB.  “The contacts in his phone are a Who’s Who of newsmakers and power brokers. Atlanta is genuinely listening to the most connected man in radio.”

The new contract ensures that Erickson will cover the next presidential election for WSB.  In addition to hosting “Atlanta’s Evening News with Erick Erickson,” weeknights from 5-7 p.m., he also provides political analysis for “Atlanta’s Morning News” and occasionally fills in for WSB’s Herman Cain.

“I fell into radio by accident, and it has been fun to really move from being a blogger and TV pundit into the role of talk radio host,” said Erickson.  “These last couple of years were not at all what I expected, but I get up every day excited to keep Atlanta entertained and informed with what is happening locally, nationally, and around the globe,” he said.
