Hannity hosted his first talk show in Santa Barbara in ’89 and learned his craft in Huntsville, Alabama and Atlanta. But Sean became widely known as a fill-in host for Rush Limbaugh in 1996. That didn’t last long. By ’97, Hannity had the afternoon slot on Limbaugh’s flagship, WABC New York, as he took over for the talk legend Bob Grant. Along the way, Hannity has been a mainstay of the Fox News TV Network. In 2003, when ABC cancelled syndication of the “Mitch Albom Show”, WBCK put Hannity on the air and he’s been a force in afternoon talk in Battle Creek ever since.
