A local Cincinnati radio host will replace Internet journalist Matt Drudge on his syndicated radio show when he goes off the air at the end of September.
Bill “Willie” Cunningham, who hosts an early afternoon show on WLW-AM in Cincinnati, will take over for Drudge and host “Live on Sunday Night with Bill Cunningham,” which will be heard Sundays nights from 9 p.m. to midnight on some 325 affiliates of Clear Channel co-owned Premiere Radio Networks.
The affiliates have been told that Drudge is leaving radio to concentrate on his Web site and other ventures, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Cunningham will host his first show on Oct. 7. He has been heard nationally before, filling in for Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity on their radio programs.
