As posted by others here, KIRO FM has shuffled the deck chairs once again this week. Gone is Bill Radke, but he isn't saying where, but evidently on good terms "I'll be moving to another local radio station where I intend to steal all the secrets to KIRO's success".
In his place, John Curley moves from 7-10p to host "Seattle's Morning News". Curley's old time slot will be "KIRO Radio at Night". Also gone from the morning news is the honey voiced Linda Thomas, who will stay with KIRO in a 'digital presence' as stated: "She has been named Senior Features Reporter and Digital Journalist for KIRO Radio and MyNorthwest.com."
Curley will be partnered up with current AM drive co-host Tom Tangney and news anchor Ursula Reutin.
Michael Savage (Weiner) has signed a deal with Cumulus Media, terms of the contract are not available but according to Talkers , Savage' deal would have his program distributed 9-12p ET.
Savage states in the release, “Cumulus and Savage will make radio history. The turbulent times we live in give talk radio a new power. This is the biggest move of my radio career and I look forward to reaching many millions of new listeners on their flamethrower signals.” No word yet on any affiliates in the NW that may pick up Savage Nation. Cumulus owned stations in Savage's own Bay Area like KGO and KSFO already have either news blocks or another show in that time slot.
