After a career in TV news spanning two decades Rick Sánchez is now firmly planted in radio. WIOD 610AM announced it is moving his current show which airs weekday afternoons at 3pm to weekday mornings from 10am to noon starting January 6 and moving Glen Beck to 6pm. Rick Sánchez still has a national contributor gig with MundoFOX though so he’s not totally out of TV news.
In his new time slot Sanchez will be “having a conversation with people about things that matter and things that are in the news that affect South Florida, which is fun” he told the Sun Sentinel’s Johnny Diaz.
Rick Sánchez returned to South Florida after his abrupt departure from CNN three years ago. In 2011, radio station 790AM hired Sánchez to replace Jorge Sedano as the FIU football announcer. And since last year he’s been with WIOD hosting a 3-hour weekday program from 3pm to 6pm.
