Premiere Networks has picked her up. the company is a subsidiary of Clear Channel and the home of Rush, Sean Hannity and Glennn Beck.
She'll broadcast live from Washington DC, weekdays starting May 11.
There's a problem for Seattleites: KPTK. writes on their site: "Rest assured, as soon as Randi is doing a daily radio show again… you will hear it right here, each night, on AM1090." But according to someone who should know, it won't be easy for the little CBS robot station to deliver the audience that her new status demands -- at least in the evenings. "There's a whole lot of push-pull going on right now. How to get her into drive-time without pushing Ron Reagan under the bus?" (We're not sure why they're so reluctant: he's been pushed before).
Rumors we made up that she'll be heard on Clear Channel's KJRAM are entirely false, we' re told.
Randi will be heard, Premiere says, on KTLK-AM/Los Angeles, KKGN-AM/San Francisco and KPOJ-AM/Portland.
Despite that it's belly of the conservative beast, PRN is simply the most prestigious and successful distributor in the business.
“Right now, America needs a voice that reflects its hopes and concerns. It will be my privilege and pleasure to provide vital information to the public about everything that is possible in the 21st century, and also have a few laughs along the way,” commented Rhodes. “Premiere is an incredible family of radio pros, and is truly the most talented and experienced radio syndicator in the nation. I’m exited about this decision and Premiere’s enthusiasm for this partnership. It’s truly a dream come true.”
Her journey from Air America to PRN via Nova M is remarkable. Clear Channel is anxious to get the liberal earballs according to Charlie Rahilly, president and chief executive of Premiere, "It's all about getting audience we don't have."
He told the WSJ reporter Sarah McBride that Ms. Randi was very successful in drawing listeners in past stints on Clear Channel stations.
