Radio talk-show host Harry Hurley is switching stations again next month, bringing his “Hurley in the Morning” show back to WENJ-AM 1450 starting July 2.
Hurley left WENJ in January to host an afternoon show on WOND-AM 1400, but he said Tuesday that the hours “just didn’t fit” in his life.
“I really feel strongly about the ‘Hurley in the Morning’ brand being the best work I can do,” said Hurley, who returns to 1450 AM for the third time in his career.
The station, owned by Townsquare Media and based in Northfield, also calls itself 1450 AM ESPN Atlantic City. It broadcasts mainly the sports network’s shows, but Hurley will return to his old 6 to 10 a.m. weekday slot.
Hurley said he will finish this month on his WOND show before making the switch. He praised Dave Coskey, the president of WOND owner Longport Media, for being “very, very nice” about the move, and thanked Townsquare’s market manager, Mike Ruble, for welcoming him back to station where he spent 15 years.
