Elliot In The Morning Moving To WOR-AM/NYC
December 9, 2013

Longtime Rock WWDC (DC101)/Washington, DC morning show Elliot In The Morning is moving to the Big Apple in the New Year, as part of a lineup overhaul at CCM+E Talker WOR-AM/New York. Elliot in the Morning will be heard in New York, starting on January 13. Elliot Segal and his team will now broadcast from New York City, but will continue to be heard on DC101 as well as Modern Rocker WRXL/Richmond.

"I'm excited to be coming back to New York, to a station with such a legendary history," said Segal.  "We have built something very special in Washington, DC and Richmond and I'm beyond thrilled that the show will continue airing on DC101 and XL-102. Now, WOR will be home to Elliot In The Morning and I couldn't be more anxious to get going."

WOR-AM will also now be the New York home of Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. Starting January 1, Limbaugh will air from noon - 3 p.m. ET, following by Hannity from 3 - 6 p.m.

"Rush and Sean have provided us a great opportunity to bring this unbeatable, one-two combination to WOR as the heart of our lineup in New York," said Tom Schurr, President of Major Markets for Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. "Talk format listeners are extremely loyal and dedicated to their favorite personalities; this new lineup enables us to both give them what they've told us they want to hear and to invest in a format we are deeply committed to."

In addition, as announced last month, WOR will also become the flagship radio station of the New York Mets beginning in 2014. WOR will broadcast The Mets' Spring Training, regular season and post-season games as well as the team's pre- and post-game shows. Beyond broadcasting the games on WOR, the alliance includes Mets-related programming and promotion through all of Clear Channel's multi-platform media assets, including radio, digital, outdoor and its music/entertainment events.

"This is an incredibly exciting time for WOR," said Joe Puglise, President/Market Manager for CCM+E-New York City.  "Bringing America's top two talk show hosts to our lineup, the entertaining Elliot Segal and his team to the mornings and becoming the flagship station for the Mets will allow us to create unprecedented marketing opportunities for our partners and unbeatable programming for our listeners."
