WPHT (1210) is ripping up its lineup, effective in the new year.
The bullet points:
- Morning man Michael Smerconish moves to afternoon drive.
- There's a new hire from the Midwest to do mornings.
- Dom Giordano gets the late-morning shift.
- Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity are gone.
Smerconish has been burning the candle at both ends, what with his morning show and a syndicated show, his writing (columns for The Inquirer and Daily News and books), and his nighttime work on MSNBC. Effective Jan. 17, Smerconish moves to 3 to 7 p.m., with a locally focused program from 3 to 4 p.m., which adds a national bent from 4 to 7 p.m.
Durable nighttimer Giordano will get Beck's 9 a..m.-to-noon shift, effective Jan. 17.
