Thom Hartmann picks up affiliates in Pittsburgh and Los Alamos, NM

WPTT-AM (1360) will add the syndicated "Thom Hartmann Show" to its talk lineup, starting March 14. It will air weeknights from 8 to 10.

The station ran Hartmann's program as a temporary fill-in last month while host Lynn Cullen was on a month-long leave. Because of the high volume of listener response, WPTT decided to pick it up as part of its regular schedule, said WPTT program director John Poister.

The new program will replace two hours of the four-hour syndicated Michael Reagan show, which will air from 6 to 8 p.m. starting March 14.

The Vermont-based Hartmann is one of the few nationally syndicated hosts with a progressive/liberal point of view. His career started in 1968, and he has worked in all areas of radio programming -- as disc jockey, news anchor and reporter, as well as talk host. His syndicated program was launched in 2003. Hartmann also is a psychotherapist and author.

Also, Hartmann replaces his old Santa Fe affiliate with one in nearby Los Alamos, NM. He will be heard on KRSN-AM (1490), displacing Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity.
