RADIO FARGO-MOORHEAD Talk KRWK (KFGO-FM 101.9 TALK FM)/FARGO PD/morning host TOM BECKA has exited the station and has signed a new deal with his other station, NRG MEDIA Talk KOIL-A/OMAHA, where he has been doing afternoons and where he will be moving back. BECKA hosted at CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFAB-A/OMAHA before joining KRWK and KOIL. With his move back to OMAHA, BECKA's show will also expand to 2-6p, starting JANUARY 2nd.
“TOM BECKA is truly one of brightest and best radio talk show hosts in the industry and to have him in an expanded, long-term capacity on THE MIGHTY 1290 is great for radio in OMAHA. He has proven himself to be a tremendous value to our listening community and our advertisers since joining our team earlier this year, and I am thrilled he is taking on an even greater role on the station,” said NRG OMAHA Market Manager ANDY RUBACK.
BECKA said, “1290 has been an ideal home for me – I know OMAHA, Eastern NEBRASKA, and the topics people care about in the local market. This station has provided me with an arena to not only engage our listeners in new ways, it has provided an outlet for talk and conversation that is more in-depth and comprehensive so listeners get what they want from the show.”
OM JEFF LYNN added, “We have no doubt BECKA will continue to deliver tremendous results due to his massive appeal with our listeners. He attracts a responsive audience that is loyal to the core and I am confident they will appreciate his expanded timeslot.”
