The Snow Answer In Cincinnati

With now-former FOX News Radio mid-morning host Tony Snow now headed to the White House press secretary’s job, we’ve wondered more than once what Clear Channel talk WKRC/550 Cincinnati would do – as it loses a show it hired in part because of the host’s local ties.

The Cincinnati Post’s Rick Bird checks in with the expected answer – WKRC has no plans to carry the FOX News Radio replacement for Snow, “Brian And The Judge”, featuring FOX News Channel personalities Brian Kilmeade and Judge Andrew Napolitano.

WKRC program director Tony Bender tells Bird that “(w)e are working on a replacement and will announce it later this week.”

At this point, we don’t know if the station has a local or national replacement in mind. If it stayed national, it could go back to Premiere’s Glenn Beck, or it could move ahead and pick up someone like TRN’s Laura Ingraham. We’re pretty sure Ingraham isn’t airing in the market.

We’re also fairly sure that WKRC won’t mount a local mid-morning show up against sister WLW’s Mike McConnell…
