WRAW Reading To Flip To Conservative Talk
iHeartMedia will launch Conservative Talk “NewsRadio 1340” WRAW Reading PA on Monday, August 12 at 12pm.
WRAW will feature a simulcast of the “RJ Harris Breakfast Show” from 580 WHP Harrisburg in mornings followed by syndicated talkers Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Buck Sexton. Limbaugh had aired in the market on 830 WEEU until this week.
The current Spanish Tropical “Rumba” programming heard on WRAW will remain on 92.3 W222BY Laureldale, but now be fed by 102.5 WRFY-HD2. That translator was included in the thirteen facility swap between iHeartMedia and Educational Media Foundation earlier this week.
iHeartMedia Reading announced today the debut of NEWSRADIO 1340 WRAW, effective Monday, August 12, at 12 p.m. NEWSRADIO 1340 WRAW will create the ultimate destination for Talk radio listeners in the Reading community by airing the most popular programs and will be available everywhere listeners are, on the devices they use most, via the iHeartRadio app.
The launch of NEWSRADIO 1340 will mark the return of “The Rush Limbaugh Show” to the Reading community airwaves. The station will also feature leading talk radio shows including “The Sean Hannity Show,” “The Glenn Beck Program,” and “The Buck Sexton Show.” In addition, mornings will be anchored by “The RJ Harris Breakfast Show,” beginning August 13. Harris is a fixture in Central Pennsylvania radio and was born and raised in Reading.
“We’re thrilled to bring this all-star lineup of Talk radio programs to Reading with the launch of NEWSRADIO 1340 WRAW,” said Jeff Hurley, Regional Senior Vice President of Programming for iHeartMedia Allentown and Harrisburg. “We’re confident that NEWSRADIO 1340 WRAW will become a favorite source for compelling news, talk and entertainment!”
“WRAW is where I got my start in radio at 16 years old, so I’m excited to contribute to the re-launch of an all-new Talk station with some of the biggest names in the format,” said Harris.
Listeners will continue to hear Rumba on 92.3 FM.
