WSB Makes Lineup Adjustments
Cox Media Group News/Talk 750 WSB Atlanta/95.5 WSBB Doraville GA is making some lineup adjustments for the new year.
With Herman Cain exiting national syndication, but remaining on Cox owned stations, he will also lose an hour from his program. Cain will now be heard from 9-11am starting Monday, January 9. The 11am hour will be given to former Regular Guy Eric Von Haessler. “The Von Haessler Doctrine” moves from Sundays to fill the weekday 11am hour.
Marc Arum, who currently is heard from 10pm-12am, will move up to an earlier timeslot as his show moves to 7-9pm. The delayed third hour of Sean Hannity will move to 9pm and Clark Howard to 10pm.
Cox Media Group (CMG) Atlanta Radio is making programming changes in 2017 on Atlanta’s News 95.5 and AM750 WSB.
The Mark Arum Show, which has proven to be appointment listening evenings in Atlanta often finishing in the top 5, is moving to weeknights at 7 p.m.
“I’m thrilled that the whole crew of The Mark Arum Show” will entertain listeners at an earlier time on such a legendary radio station,” Arum said.
Eric Von Haessler, who hosts The Von Haessler Doctrine Sundays at noon is moving to weekdays with a one-hour show at 11 a.m.
“It’s a dream come true for me to have the opportunity to do my own show weekdays on WSB,” Von Haessler said. “It’s the only station where I wanted to continue my career. We’ve created a show that is topical, fearless and fun. If you enjoy current events, you’ll enjoy our show.”
“We are pleased to add even more local content to our weekday line-up by adding Eric, and it has been exciting to watch Mark’s success in the late evenings,” said Donna Hall, CMG Atlanta Radio’s VP and General Manager. “By moving Mark to 7 p.m., we’re giving even more Atlanta listeners an opportunity to get to know him through his show. Mark and Eric are both true radio professionals, and we are fortunate to have them as part of our team.”
Herman Cain continues his successful WSB talk show at 9 a.m. The Herman Cain Show has achieved No. 1 rank for 23 consecutive Nielsen ratings periods. WSB expects the show to mark two consecutive on top with the December Nielsen ratings report. The shows ranked No. 1 since January 2015.
