PITTSBURGH — Conservative talk show host Wendy Bell has found a new job on the radio at WJAS Pittsburgh.
According to our partners at TribLive.com, a representative from St. Barnabas Broadcasting, which bought the station in November, confirmed the news.
“She’s going to be a conservative talk show host, in keeping with the lineup we have right now,” senior vice president JD Turco told TribLive.com. “There’s a lot of conservative talk here. We believe she fits well into that lineup.”
Bell’s show will air Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. till noon and Friday from 9 a.m. to noon on WJAS 1320 AM and 99.1 FM. It will also be on the iHeartRadio app by the end of the month.
The station also runs programming from Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.
Bell was let go from KDKA Radio in October. She was taken off the air in September after making controversial comments on her radio show. She suggested park rangers “shoot on site” people who deface public monuments.
She was let go from her position with WTAE-TV in 2016 after making comments on social media regarding a shooting at a backyard barbecue in Wilkinsburg that left 5 people dead.
