Dr. Laura Schlessinger, who has occupied the noon-to-3 p.m. slot on KSFO since June 2000, is moving to 7-10 p.m. starting Monday, Jan. 5.
Sean Hannity, who has been airing in the afternoon drive slot (3-6 p.m.), will replace Schlessinger from noon to 3. It means Hannity’s show will be heard live, but it also means he will no longer compete head-to-head against KNEW 910’s Michael Savage, a former KSFO host, who continues to have strong ratings.
KSFO has decided to fight Savage by putting syndicated host Mark Levin on from 3 to 5 p.m. and local host Brian Sussman from 5 to 7. Sussman, the former KPIX weatherman, was previously doing his show from 6 to 8.
KSFO confirms that they’re getting Paul Harvey from sister station KGO-AM. Harvey will be heard at 5:30 a.m., his 15-minute report will air at 8:50 a.m. and “The Rest of the Story” will air at 6:55 p.m. during Sussman’s show.
In addition, the conservative station will air a three-minute daily commentary from Mike Huckabee weekdays at 6:30 a.m.
Lee Rodgers will continue as KSFO’s morning host (5-9 a.m.) and Rush Limbaugh will air from 9 to noon.
