FOX News commentator and regular KPEL radio guest Todd Starnes will be on the air in Lafayette every weekday starting in January. His national show, The Todd Starnes Show, will begin airing on TalkRadio960 starting on January 1, 2019. Starnes will fill the time slot long held by The Laura Ingraham Show.

On Wednesday, Ingraham announced her retirement from her long-running radio show to focus more on her FOX News show "The Ingraham Angle". TalkRadio 960 is the sister station to NewsTalk 96.5 KPEL and is owned by Townsquare Media of Lafayette.

Rob Kirkpatrick, Brand Manager for NewsTalk 96.5 KPEL and TalkRadio960 said, "Todd's unique brand of news and commentary on current events has become a staple in our daily programming. We have had a long relationship with him and I think The Todd Starnes Show will be the perfect addition to the TalkRadio960 lineup."
