WRKO Revises Lineup As Jeff Kuhner Returns To Mornings
Jeff Kuhner’s “Kuhner Report” will move from its current 12-3pm slot back to morning drive. Kuhner previously hosted mornings at WRKO from 2012 until 2015. Kuhner’s move to early afternoons in 2015 was tied with Rush Limbaugh’s exit from the WRKO lineup.
With Kuhner moving to mornings, Doug ‘VB’ Goudie will slide from co-hosting mornings to “VB In the Middle” in the 12-3pm slot. Goudie was a longtime producer for the Howie Carr Show and commentator for WFXT-TV before joining his former WFXT colleague Kim Carrigan at WRKO in 2016. With the realignment of the WRKO lineup now, Carrigan has exited the station.
iHeartMedia Boston announced today that Jeff Kuhner’s The Kuhner Report is returning to morning drive on WRKO-AM 680, The Voice of Boston, effective November 26. The Kuhner Report will broadcast weekday mornings from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. In addition, the debut of the new V.B. in the Middle with host Doug “V.B.” Goudie will air weekday afternoons from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. also effective November 26.
Kuhner and V.B. will redefine the WRKO-AM 680 program lineup. The Kuhner Report will continue to cover today’s latest headlines and breaking political news. Conservative Jeff Kuhner will continue to tackle cutting-edge, hot-button, political, social and foreign policy issues. V.B. in the Middle will also discuss today’s biggest political headlines, showcasing V.B.’s humorous, creative opinions as well as his connection with the Boston listeners.
“Jeff Kuhner believes what he says and says what he believes,” said Robert Sanchez, WRKO-AM 680 Program Director and Vice President of News/Talk for iHeartMedia Boston. “Bostonians need an energy burst in the morning and with Jeff, their commute just erupted.”
“It will be great to get back in the mornings,” said Kuhner. “It is such a privilege to work with all the professionals at WRKO-AM 680, especially Howie and V.B. I feel a true connection to our listeners and can’t wait to begin my day with them again.”
“I love Boston and I love to talk,” said V.B. “I’m in the middle politically and also in the middle of the day between two powerhouse personalities, Jeff Kuhner in the morning and Howie Carr in the afternoon. We’ll have intense conversations, of course, but I’ll keep it from getting too serious. It will be lunch time after all.”
Jeff Kuhner began his career as a columnist for The Washington Times and brought his fiery brand of political talk to Boston in 2012. Doug “V.B.” Goudie started his media career as a cast member of The Howie Carr Show and then transitioned to television as commentator for Boston 25 News.
