Rush Limbaugh fans in Los Angeles and San Francisco will find the political talker on a different frequency beginning next year. On Jan. 2 Clear Channel will move Limbaugh’s program to new stations in those markets, meaning he will leave Los Angeles’ KFI-AM and San Francisco’s KKSF-AM. Limbaugh will move to KTLK-AM in Los Angeles and KNEW-AM in San Francisco. Clear Channel is rebranding both as conservative talk stations, and the addition of Limbaugh should give them a big ratings boost.
