WDAY Radio replacing Beck with ‘Geraldo’FARGO – 970 WDAY Radio is changing its daytime talk lineup.
Starting Monday, the nationally syndicated talk show “Geraldo” will replace conservative political commentator Glenn Beck in the 8 to 11 a.m. slot Monday through Friday.
The show, hosted by Geraldo Rivera, will focus on the day’s biggest and most talked-about topics, ranging from national politics and shocking crimes to social issues.
It’s a return for Geraldo to his successful days with ABC News, “20/20” and “Nightline.”
“We weren’t getting the response we were hoping for with Glenn Beck, so it was time for a change,” said Erick Johnson, 970 WDAY operations manager.
Johnson said the “Geraldo” show is more news-oriented than Beck.
