- Confirmed: Cumulus Media is parting ways with the syndicated program hosted by Sean Hannity at the end of 2013, opening a couple hours on the weekday afternoon schedule at Cumulus' News/Talk WJR AM 760 Detroit.
Several other stations in Michigan currently owned by Cumulus that air Hannity (WBCK-FM 95.3 Battle Creek, WKMI AM 1360 Kalamazoo and WJIM AM 1240 Lansing) are being sold to Townsquare Media and the future of Hannity on those stations is not clear due to the pending ownership change.
