replacement for Larry Kudlow's Westwood One radio show

Post by 80sTalkRadioFan » Sun Apr 01, 2018 4:35 pm

As you may know, Larry Kudlow ended his long running syndicated radio show on Westwood One this weekend. He'll be sworn in soon as President Trump's new top economic advisor. Is Westwood One replacing his show, or will individual stations have to find their own replacements for Mr. Kudlow's weekly broadcasts?

I was wondering the same thing. I heard his final show on 100.7 in Toledo on Saturday.

If Westwood One doesn't replace it, that probably means 3 more hours of Dave Ramsey reruns on 100.7 in Toledo. If I had to guess, Kudlow probably won't be replaced by the network, since most stations, including Toledo's 100.7, did not air him live, but rather on a tape delay. His initial New York flagship station, WABC-AM, dropped his show entirely at the end of 2017, in favor of 3 hours of infomercials.

100.7 might as well be called Dave FM on The weekend. Nothing against Dave Ramsey but that's what it is. Right, I doubt they will replace the show.

Last Saturday, CNBC's Michelle Coruso Cabrera filled in for Larry, but it sounded like she would only be on that week. Also, Westwood One did not podcast that episode.

Stephen Moore is sitting in tonight.

Maybe they’ll just keep the show on the air going forward with various guest hosts. The turnover in the Trump administration is so quick and fast, maybe Kudlow will be back on the radio in 5 months or so.

I really liked Kudlow’s show. While he talked politics, it wasn’t the typical political radio show. It was so tightly focused on economic news. I thought it was a refreshing talk show with a deeper subject matter than most shows out there. Maybe not for everyone, but it was my cup of tea. I really hope Kudlow returns to the format after his public service concludes, whenever that might be.

Yeah, Steve More was having major technical/isdn issues. His first hour was very choppy. As far as Kudlow, he was one of the few conservatives I could listen to and not want to throw things at the radio. While I disagree with him on many issues, he tried to always present the conservative ideology with a civil tone and asked the same from those who disagreed with him.
