It's true, as of air time. Curley gone... Linda Thomas and Dave Ross are doing the morning news block. Will Ross hand over the balance of the morning to Luke Burbank, flying solo the rest of the show?
However we just heard back from programing:
Curley is still in the KIRO family awaiting reassignment, Dave Ross will co host the first hour of the Ross/Burbank show. Burbank to have contributors for the 10-11a segments, including Tangney.
The morning ratings have suffered since the fall book. We'll report more when we hear it.
We got this from management...
"John Curley is no longer hosting Seattle's Morning News. He's still in the KIRO Radio family and we're working with him to find the best possible platform for his talent. The change was made, because KIRO Radio has been hearing from a LOT of you that you want straight-forward news, traffic and weather first thing in the morning - saving the talk shows for later in the day. We heard that message loud and clear. So, effective today we've made some adjustments to our line up and we're doubling up on news in the morning with more news each hour delivered by two of the most respected news voices in the Northwest; Dave Ross and Linda Thomas."
