KSL Radio announced Thursday the station is dropping one of its most popular programs, "The Sean Hannity Show." Hannity's program, which has dominated the 1 to 4 p.m. time slot in the Wasatch Front region, will end its relationship with KSL Radio in October.

For the life of the program, it took the number one slot for Salt Lake City under the Arbitron Diary ratings system. Hannity was also the top-rated program in six of the first nine months of electronic measurement that began last fall.

In a press release, KSL CEO Mark Willes said the station acknowledged Hannity's contributions to the station.

"At the end of the day," Willes said, "we simply feel our future success and competitive advantage reside in creating unique local content, and that is our objective for developing replacement programming."
