Good old Mark Levin, it will be fun to hear him work himself into a lather again.

albert albertson

Gee, nice to see a radio-related story for a change.

I enjoy Levin too--ever heard John Carlson's Levin impression? Funny.

Does anyone know where newsman Tony Miner is working? He left KIRO in 2011, supposedly to KGMI Bellingham, but he's nowhere to be found on the KGMI website.

Hedge Fund Hal

Miner either changed his mind about leaving the station, or things didnt go well at KGMI and he was rehired after a short time away. I noticed some time after Miner's big going away party that he was still on the station. He is on the station now, his pic and bio are on the roster on mynorthwest.com.

albert albertson

Hal, I had no idea--he must be on-air only after 9am? I know he doesn't anchor the early am newscasts, but I don't think I've heard him in early am with any stories/reports.

Between 9am-10pm, I just can't listen to KIRO.


Good to good old Dirk Van or was it Jim Bohanon?? Perhaps we can get money talk back on the weekends.


Jim Bohanon is my favorite talk show host. I like his professionalism and relative objectivity. If KVI moved him on in the evening and left Lars Larson on the other station, I would be a loyal listener during that time.


Your format descriptions in the right column need to be updated for KOMO and KVI.

The BW Crew

Yes, and we are working on it. Day jobs get in the way of progress sometimes.


Why don't you just change all of the names to politicians since you rarely talk about local radio. :)


Is this change number 402 or 403?


Just what the doctor ordered. I'm glad Fisher finally realized what a disaster move that was.

Mark Levin being carried Live, check!
Laura Ingrahm, check
Carlson with less commercial interruption, check.
Conservative KVI coming in clear in Liberal la la land, along with other stations that sprouted from the loss of KVI for 20 months. Check.
Just in time for the election. Check.

Hedge Fund Hal

This Redeye Radio that KVI is offering late nights now, is like sitting in a booth at a crappy bar in Burien with a bunch of crotchety middle-aged dicks.

    pacific nw talk stations

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber
    • KIROFM 97.3
      Multi-format: news and nearly all local talk. This is where classic KIRO AM news talk radio went... hopefully, not to die. The home of Dave Ross & Luke Burbank, Dori Monson, Ron & Don, Frank Shiers, Bill Radke, Linda Thomas, Tony Miner and George Noory.
    • KUOW FM 94.9
      Seattle's foremost public radio news and talk.
    • KVI am 570 KHz
      Visit the burnt-out husk of one of the seminal right-wing talkers in all the land. Here's where once trilled the reactionary tones of Rush Limbaugh, John Carlson, Kirby Wilbur, Mike Siegel, Peter Weissbach, Floyd Brown, Dinky Donkey, and Bryan Suits. Now it's Top 40 hits from the '60's & '70's aimed at that diminishing crowd who still remembers them and can still hear.
    • KTTH am 770 KHz
      Right wing home of local, and a whole bunch of syndicated righties such as Glennn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Medved, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Lars Larsony, and for an hour a day: live & local David Boze.
    • KPTK am 1090 KHz
      Syndicated liberal talk. Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes, Norman Goldman fill in the large hole to the left on Northwest radio dial.
    • KLFE AM 1590 kHz
      Syndicated right-wing 2nd stringers like Mark Levin, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt inhabit this timid-voiced neighbor honker for your radio enjoyment (unless you're behind something large like Costco).
    • KOMOAM
      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
    • KKOL am 1300 KHz
      Once a rabid right-wing talker, except for Lou Dobbs, it's all business....
