Premiere syndicated Sunday night host Matt Drudge exits his show after his September 30th show. OMW hears that Premiere says the host "has chosen to depart the radio business" to concentrate on his popular Internet site and "other endeavors".
The Drudge show airs on most Clear Channel-owned talk stations in Ohio, and counts an affiliate base of over 325 stations nationwide.
Replacing him is WLW/700 Cincinnati early afternoon mainstay Bill Cunningham, who starts October 7th in the Sunday night slot.
As far as we know, "Willie" continues in his local WLW weekday time slot, and as far as we know, unlike WLW stablemate Mike McConnell's daily program, that show will continue to focus only on Cincinnati and the Tri-State area.
