Rush Limbaugh’s radio tirades will have a new home on Los Angeles airwaves next year.

KFI-AM (640) is losing the conservative host’s three-hour show, long a fixture on the station, to KTLK-AM (1150), which owner Clear Channel is hoping to pump up as an outlet exclusively dedicated to right-leaning chatter.

The company, which also owns KFI, will use Limbaugh’s audience to anchor the new lineup for KTLK, which is being dubbed “The Patriot” and will also feature national shows by Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity.

Clear Channel is making similar changes in San Francisco, where Limbaugh will leave its KKSF-AM (910), and move to KNEW-AM (960), which is also retooling its lineup as a destination for conservative audiences. The changes are set to take effect for the first broadcast of 2014.
