Steph and the Mooks - KLAY AM 1180 has changed its schedule and is now airing Stephanie Miller "live" 6:00 - 9:00 AM. According to Bruce of KLAY, Stephanie prefers to air during the live show time slot because they get listeners calling into her show.
Thom Hartmann is still airing on KLAY AM 1180, 4:00-7:00 PM, and KBCS 91.3 FM, Noon-3:00 PM
Dr Joy Browne has returned to her old slot at KLAY from 9-Noon.
Carolyn Tamler and a small group of talk-radio fans are trying to bring progressive talk radio back to Seattle. She told me she is doing this “because there is nowhere else to get news.” Ouch.
The station that Tamler, an independent marketing consultant who lives on Whidbey Island, used to listen to, AM 1090, switched from progressive talk to sports in January. The CBS-owned station is betting the deep blue Seattle area audience is more passionate about sports than liberal ideology.
So Tamler and a few like-minded listeners (Julia Chase, Phil Harrison, Matt Carson, Larisa Wanserski, Rennie Sawade and RoseAnn Alspektor) are trying to find a way to return their programing to the air.
Last December, before the format changed, Tamler placed a petition online that reads, “Don’t let Seattle lose progressive radio! As a local radio listener, I pledge to support with my dollars any advertiser on any station that chooses to broadcast progressive programming.”
Tamler is a coordinator for the Whidbey Island council of MoveOn, and said the political organizing group helped get the word out so that 5,000 people had signed up by the second day. There are 9,600 signatures now.
