LINWOOD, N.J. — Harry Hurley, radio talk-show host for over 20 years of Hurley in the Morning, will be taking over the midday time slot of noon-4pm weekdays on WOND 1400AM, effective January 2012, it was recently announced in a media release. He will be taking over the time slot syndicated talk-show host Rush Limbaugh now occupies.
Hurley currently hosts the 6-10am slot on WENJ 1450AM, where he launched his radio broadcast career and spent 15 years prior to a five-year stint at WIBG 1020 AM in Ocean City (returning to WENJ earlier this month). He will be joining fellow broadcast veterans Don Williams (6-10am), Barbara Altman (10am-noon) and Pinky Kravitz (4-6pm) at WOND.
According to the release, Hurley is “known for breaking news and securing high-profile interviews with top news-makers and notables. Hurley has interviewed numerous members of Congress, Governors, state, county and local elected officials, as well as A-list celebrities throughout the past two decades.”

“I am honored to be joining the best live and local talk radio lineup in the history of our market,” said Hurley in the release. “Don, Barbara, Pinky and I will bring more than 100 years of uninterrupted talk radio to WOND — an unmatched record in the history of South Jersey.”
