Devoted listeners of popular right-wing radio host Laura Ingraham are stunned to hear she suddenly resigned earlier this week from Talk Radio Network (TRN) ending her radio show which was heard on over 300 stations across the United States. Ingraham, who's been heard on local station 1390 WBLL for over ten years, is one of the most listened to personalities in America. Ingraham ranked #4 in Talkers top 100 in 2012.
Ingraham did end her Monday broadcast with a bizarre tribute to her staff thanking them for their work and dedication (not the normal way she wraps up her show). Little did listeners know she was signing off for good at that point ending her 10+ years affiliation with TRN.
Talk Radio Network has not released any details on the the parting of Ingraham, except to say that Tammy Bruce will temporarily fill the spot. Laura Ingraham's reps are quiet as well just saying that she is looking at expanding and retooling her show and is actively pursuing other syndication options.
It's been no secret that Ingraham and TRN have had there differences over the years including a brief time a few years ago when she was off the air as they renogiated her contract.
Earlier this year Michael Savage sued TRN to get out of his contract and after he won he left the network and has since signed with Cumulus.
WBLL is currently looking at options both temporary and long term to fill the Ingraham spot from 9:00-Noon Monday-Friday. Operations Manager Chad Wilkinson said "should Laura return to radio soon, with another network, we would definitely pursue bringing her back to Logan County".
