Mr. Parks, one of Washington’s most recognizable and successful talk show hosts over the last three decades, launched his new show two years ago from inside The Times’ newsroom, integrating reporters and breaking news from the newspaper with his well-known commentaries and newsmaker interviews.
Salem recently announced it is upgrading WRC’s daytime signal to 35,000 watts and has struck rebroadcast deals with smaller stations, amplifying its range beyond the Washington, D.C., metro area and into central and southern Virginia and northern Maryland.
“The combination of the resources of The Washington Times and WRC 1260 provides a great opportunity to explore the news of the day, examine the big issues and break stories. I look forward to bringing those elements of the show to the listeners at WRC,” Mr. Parks said.
