KALZ/Fresno To Launch 'Power Talk' Format January 1st
December 10, 2012 at 4:32 AM (PT)
ALL ACCESS has learned that CLEAR CHANNEL will flip Hot AC KALZ (ALICE 96.7)/FRESNO and Sports KRZR-A (FOX SPORTS RADIO 1340 AND 1400, simulcast with KCBL-A)/VISALIA to Talk as "POWER TALK" on JANUARY 1st. The move, tipped by URL registrations (NET NEWS 11/14), was expected after PREMIERE NETWORKS talk programming was pulled from crosstown PEAK BROADCASTING Talk KMJ-A and KMJ-F in OCTOBER.
The lineup will include PREMIERE's GLENN BECK 6-9a (PT), RUSH LIMBAUGH 9a-noon, and SEAN HANNITY noon-3p; a local show with former CUMULUS Talk KKOH-A/RENO host BILL MANDERS 3-6p; and PREMIERE's ANDY DEAN 6-9p, "GROUND ZERO WITH CLYDE LEWIS" 9-10p, and "COAST TO COAST AM WITH GEORGE NOORY" 10p-6a. Weekends will include PREMIERE's GARY SULLIVAN, BILL HANDEL, LEO LAPORTE, BILL CUNNINGHAM, and "THE JESUS CHRIST SHOW" along with a weekend edition of MANDERS' show and "best of" shows from LIMBAUGH, HANNITY, and BECK.
