Wendy Bell, the radio host let go by KDKA last fall, is joining WJAS Pittsburgh. She announced her new position in a Facebook post Wednesday.
“America needs common-sense conservatism,” she wrote.
JD Turco, senior vice president at St. Barnabas Broadcasting, which bought WJAS in November, confirmed Thursday that Bell will be joining the station.
“She’s going to be a conservative talk show host, in keeping with the lineup we have right now,” he said. “There’s a lot of conservative talk there. We believe she fits well into that lineup.”
The station features conservative voices that include Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.
Bell’s new radio show will air Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. till noon and Friday from 9 a.m. to noon on WJAS 1320AM and 99.1 FM and the iHeartRadio app, beginning Jan. 25.
