Salem Launches New Philadelphia Talk

Newly-signed Chris Stigall, longtime Philadelphia radio personality, anchored the launch today with a brand new program, Philadelphia’s Morning Answer with Chris Stigall. He’ll host the program weekdays from 6am-9am, joining AM 990’s program line-up that also includes Mike Gallagher, Hugh Hewitt, Dennis Prager, Sebastian Gorka, Larry Elder and Eric Metaxas.

“One of the biggest thrills in my career was watching Donald Trump win Pennsylvania in 2016,” says Stigall. “I can’t wait to be back with the smartest audience in all of radio as we work to bring the Keystone State home again in 2020. There’s never been a more exciting time in history to launch a new radio show. I’m so proud and excited to call AM990 the Answer my new home!”

Notes Phil Boyce, SVP/Director, Spoken Word Format & Salem Radio Network, “For nearly nine years, Chris Stigall held down the captain’s chair on morning radio in Philly. Now we are doing the right thing and bringing him back. There could not be a more perfect time to add a new local voice to our lineup. We’re all about breaking news and what to think of it. Chris is back to answer all of that and more. “

“The change to Philadelphia’s AM 990 The Answer more accurately reflects what we have always desired to be as a radio station—one that always went deeper into issues that matter to all of us, one that provides answers to the many questions we all have,” adds Lorenzo Caldara, General Manager, Salem Media Group Philadelphia. “With the addition of Chris Stigall in the mornings, we now have the added dimension to focus on local issues just as closely as we can on national issues. We’re proud of this city, and it’s time to serve it better than ever before.”
