Dana Loesch has just hit the big leagues and will be replacing the Rush Limbaugh Show at noon in 11 big cities around the country:
AXIOS – Audacy, the radio giant formerly called Entercom, has struck a multi-station, two-year deal to broadcast Dana Loesch’s nationally-syndicated ‘The Dana Show’ in 11 markets, executives tell Axios.
Why it matters: It’s the first example of a major radio network opting not to air the show pioneered by the late Rush Limbaugh now that its new hosts have been named.
Other radio networks, like Cumulus, are likely to continue to air their own nationally-syndicated conservative talk radio programs in that time slot.
Details: Beginning June 21st, “The Dana Show” will replace “The Rush Limbaugh Show” in Kansas City, Las Vegas, Richmond, Wichita, Gainesville, and Greenville-Spartanburg, with additional station clearances in Philadelphia, Austin, Buffalo, St. Louis and Hartford.
Audacy is also teaming with Loesch to become the exclusive streaming provider for “The Dana Show,” and will co-develop Loesch’s first on-demand podcast.
Wow this is really great news! I’m sure her show will just take off from here and will soon be introduced into more and more markets as the years come.
It’s also interesting to me that Audacy is choosing not to air the talk show by Clay Travis and Buck Sexton, which ends up being a great opportunity for Loesch. If I had my druthers, I’d probably listen to Dana instead as well.
