On the radio, he hosts The Big Show with Bill Cunningham, a local show on WLW AM 700 in Cincinnati, Ohio; and Live on Sunday Night, it's Bill Cunningham, which is syndicated nationally by Premiere Radio Networks.
Cunningham's first regular show on the station was at night, generally from 9:00 p.m. until midnight. His show was not heard during the summer months, when WLW broadcasts Cincinnati Reds baseball games. In the late 1990s, Cunningham's show was moved to early afternoons, which put his show directly opposite that of one of his favorite radio presenters, Rush Limbaugh, whose show is heard on sister station WKRC.
TV talk show
As of September 19, 2011, Cunningham hosts The Bill Cunningham Show, a first-run syndicated television talk show. Cunningham serves as the show's co-producer.

It moved to The CW beginning September 10, 2012, where it is now seen nationally.

Both grew up in the Cincinnati area where he was inducted into the local basketball hall of fame and was named one of the top 100 high school basketball players of all time. They have one son and two grandchildren.
