KOMO radio has given up 24/hour live news and is playing re-runs of weekday talkers John Carlson and Ken Schram in the overnight.

But... says a commenter on the trade Radio-Info forum:
To be fair, KOMO does have on-air-ready producers, something many other news stations don't have. Still, it's bad enough that we have six hours of talk on a "news" station; now the bulk of the all-night shift is talk reruns, with some news being done by the producer/editors.
More austerity from Fisher for the radio sector which always sucks hind teat to teevee in corporate considerations.
KIRO gave up live & local overnight in 2008 when they fired the insufferable Bryan Styble. They nowovernight with the syndicated George Noory, while KTTH does a Laura Ingraham rehash (daily, 1-4a) and America's Morning News, (daily, 4-6a) a right-wing tilt on the previous day's headlines from the blarmy Washington Times.
