Laura Ingraham returns to airwaves
There goes the Judge! WKRC-AM (550) has pulled the plug on “Brian and The Judge,” the Fox radio replacement for Tony Snow that debuted Thursday. Instead of Brian Kilmeade from “Fox & Friends” and retired New Jersey judge Andrew Napolitano, WKRC-AM listeners heard Laura Ingraham 9 a.m.-noon Monday. Ingraham was on the WBOB-AM (1160) talk lineup until the station switched to oldies Feb. 11. WKRC-AM had considered adding Ingraham in January, when the station blew out Glenn Beck for Snow.
Local “Wife Swap,” but not “Supernanny”
The “Wife Swap” shot in Deerfield Township last month with Kim Carrao’s family airs at 8 p.m. today (Ch. 9), but we’ll have to wait a while to see the “Supernanny” shot in Erlanger in March. “Supernanny” ends its season today (9 p.m., Ch. 9) after “Wife Swap.” The Kentucky episode will air in the fall, if ABC renews the series for a third season on May 16, says an ABC publicist. Or it could air this summer. The network has never revealed the name of the Kenton County family on the show.
For “Wife Swap,” hair stylist Kim Carrao switched places with “Cowgirl Jen” Ridgely, who’s married to a Delaware professional bull rider. We’ll see her shoveling manure in high heels tonight, and later see Ridgely’s husband take a swing at Carrao’s husband.
