Springer: Talking a new game

The right end of Cincinnati's AM radio dial starts leaning to the left Monday.

The city's first liberal radio talk format debuts at 9 a.m. Monday with Jerry Springer's new serious talk show, "Springer on the Radio."

The Clear Channel station, which will revert to its original WCKY-AM (1530) call letters Monday, also gives its 50,000-watt voice to syndicated hosts comedian-author Al Franken, Ed Schultz and Randi Rhodes.


"Cincinnati is clearly ready for this. Talk radio now is all (conservatives) Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. It does not make sense to only have the same (conservative) point of view," says Springer, 60, who wants to syndicate his show nationally, starting with Detroit next month. He will continue to host his syndicated TV show from Chicago.

From this article, here is WCKY's new schedule:

5-6 AM: Wall Street Journal Report
6-9 AM: (debuts Tuesday): "Morning Sedition" with Mark Riley and Marc Maron
9 AM-N: "Springer on the Radio," with Jerry Springer, Jene Galvin and Megan Hils.
N-3 PM: Al Franken
3-6 PM: Ed Schultz
6-10 PM: Randi Rhodes
10 PM-M: Lionel
M-5 AM: Paid religious broadcasts on the half-hour.
