Westwood One said Monday that "The Fred Thompson Show" will debut March 2, replacing "The Radio Factor With Bill O'Reilly," which ends its six-year run February 27. O'Reilly announced his decision to step down from the show this month, saying the workload for his radio and TV duties had become too much.
In his show, Thompson will share his conservative views on politics, topical issues and pop culture stories as well as conduct guest interviews and take listener calls.
(Editor's note: Snark begins here.) Rejected names for Thompson's show, included: "Sleepy-Talk With Uncle Fred"; "Drones and Phones"; "Noddin' Off With Gramps", and many more.
Perhaps you, clever Flyer readers, can come up with a few more rejected names for Thompson's show. Hint, hint.
