On May 15, Salem’s San Diego News/Talk station, AM 1170 The Answer, will expand The Hugh Hewitt Morning Show by an additional hour, airing it 3 a.m. to 7 a.m. PT, and add Mike Gallagher Live from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. PT. Hewitt moved to mornings last April and quickly became the “go to” guy for this last presidential campaign.
Vice President and General Manager Dale Hendry said, “We know San Diego and our very loyal audience will be very pleased with the new and improved morning lineup on The Answer. An added plus for us is that Mike will be in studio with us in San Diego for the launch of the new lineup on Monday, May 15, and will meet local staff and clients.”
“Salem Radio Network now provides live news and issue-oriented programming from 6 a.m. to Midnight ET with some of the best hosts on radio,” said Salem Senior VP of Spoken Word, Phil Boyce. “This new lineup will be well received in San Diego and will allow us to properly use the Salem assets at our disposal in the most efficient way. These two hosts are at the top of their game, and we’re delighted to give them more time in such an important market.”
