Dave Parker’s locally produced 10 a.m.-noon talk show on WNIS 790-AM disappeared Monday, replaced by the syndicated program “Kilmeade & Friends” from Fox News Radio.
The former TV weatherman will appear from time to time with Tony Macrini’s morning news team on WNIS. Parker will fill in when Macrini is off.
Brian Kilmeade is a host on the Fox News Channel TV show “Fox & Friends,” with Ainsley Earhardt and Steve Doocy. He does “Fox & Friends” weekdays from 6 to 9 a.m., then does the radio show from 9 a.m. to noon. WNIS carries only the 10 a.m.-noon segment.
Bob Sinclair, who runs family-owned Sinclair Communications, said Parker’s WNIS show was as good as any locally produced programming, but he replaced Parker with “Kilmeade & Friends” because he wants to bring the country’s heavy hitters to WNIS.
