Salem Announces New Morning Lineup in San Diego on AM 1170 The Answer

Media Group
(NASDAQ: SALM), announced a new morning lineup on its
NewsTalk station in San Diego, AM
1170 The Answer
. On Monday, May 15th, the station will expand The
Hugh Hewitt
morning show by an additional hour, airing it from 3am
to 7am PT. It will also add Mike
, live from 7am to 9am PT. The new lineup will provide a
one-two punch in morning drive, using two of Salem’s top rated hosts.

“We know San Diego and our very loyal audience will be very pleased with
the new and improved morning lineup on The Answer,” said Vice President
and General Manager Dale Hendry. “An added plus for us is that Mike will
be in studio with us in San Diego for the launch of the new lineup on
Monday, May 15th, and will meet local staff and clients.”

Hewitt moved to mornings last April and quickly became the “go to” guy
for this last presidential campaign. His morning show has the biggest
guests and is constantly breaking news. Gallagher has grown to become
Salem’s highest rated host around the country. Everyday he fulfills his
listeners’ desire for breaking news and helps them understand
what to think about it.

“Salem Radio Network now provides live news and issue oriented
programming from 6am to Midnight ET with some of the best hosts on
radio,” said Salem Senior VP of Spoken Word, Phil Boyce. “This new
lineup will be well received in San Diego and will allow us to properly
use the Salem assets at our disposal in the most efficient way. These
two hosts are at the top of their game, and we’re delighted to give them
more time in such an important market.”
