Rose of 'Quinn & Rose' back on the air Wednesday

| Tuesday, May 12, 2015, 4:02 p.m.

Salem Media Group signs on its third Pittsburgh-market radio station May 13, when WPGP-AM (1250) begins offering a talk format the California-based company calls “The Answer.”

Conservative talk-radio show host Rose Somma-Tennent, former WPCB-TV producer and co-host of Jim Quinn's WPGB-FM (104.7) shows, will have a local show from 8 to 10 a.m. weekdays.

“This is a great opportunity for me, a chance to do a talk show that fully reflects who I am and what I care about,” Somma-Tennent says.

Salem recently purchased the former WDDZ from Radio Disney for $1 million. WDDZ's youth-oriented musical format signed off permanently earlier this week.

Westwood One's syndicated Mark Levin will hold down the 6 p.m. slot, as part of what otherwise will be a schedule of Salem Radio Network talk shows, including Bill Bennett at 6 a.m., Mike Gallagher at 10 a.m., Dennis Prager at noon, Michael Medved at 3 p.m. and Hugh Hewitt at 9 p.m.

“We want to be a station that tackles solid local and national issues with an intelligent opinion committed to truth and integrity,” Pittsburgh Salem general manager Tom Lemmon said in a prepared statement.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
