    “That is the plan for filling the time in the New York market,” the insider said of the potential switch. “Other stations around the country that similarly carry both shows back-to-back will likely follow New York’s lead.”

    The alleged plan comes as another source spilled that the former radio jockey has not yet signed on for another season of the fan favorite chat show. Executives are waiting to see if Williams returns and how things play out in the ratings.
