Hannity Getting New Radio Home?

hannity_6-9.JPGThe New York Daily News’ David Hinckley reports FNC anchor and ABC Radio host Sean Hannity could be leaving for a new syndicator as early as this Thursday.

The reigning “radio personality of the year” has a contract which allows him to opt out within a year of the company’s sale.

“That date is Thursday, and Hannity is talking with the new owners, Citadel, about re-upping — presumably at a higher number with a healthy signing bonus,” writes Hinckley. “He reportedly makes $5 million a year from radio, compared to some $30 million for Rush [Limbaugh].”

If a Citadel deal doesn’t happen, another contender is Clear Channel.
