Calling it the "biggest shake-up in talk radio history," conservative talk-show host Michael Savage announced Wednesday night that his program, "The Savage Nation," will be taking over Sean Hannity's daily time slot from 3 to 6 p.m. on Cumulus Radio.

The time shift won't take place until January, according to World Net Daily.




"The time slot says that something about my show has resonated with the American people," Savage said.

"Will this change of Michael Savage going to drive time change the course of the next election?" he asked rhetorically.

It was reported in late July that Cumulus Radio would be dropping its two top conservative talk-show hosts, Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, by the end of 2013. Both have since struck new deals, however, with Limbaugh remaining with Cumulus and Hannity moving to Premiere Networks to continue his nationally syndicated program. Limbaugh is still ranked as the leading radio talk show host, based on listeners, and Hannity is ranked second behind him.

Savage predicted in August that he would be taking over Hannity's highly coveted afternoon drive slot, saying the "sun has set" on Hannity's "act."

"I predict, right here, right now, that I, Michael Savage, and the 'Savage Nation' is going to take over 'The Sean Hannity Show' time slot by the end of the year," Savage said on Aug. 15. "I am heir apparent to afternoon drive on the East Coast and around America on Cumulus stations, which have the most powerful stations in the radio world."

Politico reported Wednesday afternoon before "The Savage Nation" began at 9 p.m. Eastern Time that Savage would be making this "big announcement."

It was also announced earlier this month that Hannity's 9 p.m. television show time slot on Fox News would be going to rising star Megyn Kelly and that he would be moving to 10 p.m.
