Elliott runs out of Morning Drive Time at WILM


ElliotttBruce Elliott is out as host of the morning drive at talk station WILM.

 The host, who drove a van around town  bearing his likeness along with those of Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, apparently went off the air in December.

Elliott brought a conservative spin to AM drive time  for about four years to the station, which had survived  over the years with a combination of  news and talk from both sides of the political spectrum.

A key part of that equation, long-time talk show host John Watson and news director Mark Fowser,  departed as the format changed.  Allan Loudell, another key figure in the operation, left earlier for WDEL.

Elliott  came to WILM after holding down a weekend slot at Baltimore talker, WBAL.  Owner iHeart Media (Clear Channel)  is now looking for a replacement based on a job posting on its website.

The iHeart brand has gained some traction as a source of free music  in the Pandora era and the parent company adopted it iHeart also has a popular music event in Las Vegas that attract top rock performers.

In its heyday under the Hawkins family, WILM was one of the largest news operations on the East Coast.
