With today’s renaming WIND joins Salem stations in Columbus, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, and Riverside using the moniker. The station’s on-air lineup will be unaffected. Local hosts John Howell and Amy Jacobson remain from 5-9am followed by Glenn Beck from 9-11, Dennis Miller 11-2, Michael Medved 2-5, and local host Steve Cochran 5-7pm. Salem’s Hugh Hewitt, Mike Gallagher, and Dennis Prager round out the lineup at night although Time-Out Chicago’s Robert Feder reported last week that the company is in talks with former congressman Joe Walsh to host a local evening show with potential for national syndication.
