Charlie Kirk to Join 77WABC in Rush Limbaugh’s Old Time Slot


Human Events contributor Charlie Kirk’s radio show will broadcast on Salem Radio Network’s 77WABC and 107.1 FM WLIR from 12-1p.m. EDT—filling the coveted time slot of radio icon, Rush Limbaugh.

The show will begin airing on Monday, April 12th.

New York’s 77WABC was Limbaugh’s flagship radio station for decades, having aired his nationally syndicated hit show, The Rush Limbaugh Show beginning in August of 1988.

“I am thrilled and honored to take the same time and station where my friend and American hero Rush Limbaugh launched his national radio show in 1988,” said Charlie Kirk. “I am so impressed with what John Catsimatidis has done since he bought this great station, and will commit to doing my part to keep this as one of the top talk stations in America.”

Salem Vice President of Spoken Word Phil Boyce said, “I was fortunate to be the PD at WABC for 14 years. I am thrilled to see WABC once again affirm its status as one of the truly iconic talk stations in the nation, and so blessed to be able to add our newest star Charlie Kirk to their all-star lineup.”

Kirk first joined the Salem Radio Network in the noon to 3 p.m. EDT time slot in October 2020 and has continued to grow his audience on stations across the country.

Limbaugh learned he had stage IV lung cancer in January 2020 and tragically succumbed to the disease on February 17, 2021. The last day he hosted his radio show was February 2, 2021.
