S.F.'s Quake Goes 'Green'
August 21, 2007 at 6:36 PM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KQKE-A (AM960 THE QUAKE)/SAN FRANCISCO is changing its name to GREEN 960 with calls KKGN-A as of MONDAY (8/27), with the station supplementing its present liberal Talk format with environmental talk and news, including a 3-4p weekday show, "GREEN SEED RADIO," produced with the GREEN BUILDING EXCHANGE. The station also plans to expand its "PROGRESSIVE NEWS HOUR" with JOHN SCOTT to 4-6p. AIR AMERICA RADIO's RACHEL MADDOW gets bumped to 9-11p and RANDI RHODES moves up from 9p-midnight to 6-9p. NOVA M's MIKE MALLOY shifts from 6-9p to 11p-2a.
PD BOB AGNEW says, "This is a natural evolution for the station. We are in the most environmentally-conscientious market in the country, and our listeners have let us know the depth of their concern and their desire to be part of the solution. 'GREEN 360' will entertain, educate, and motivate people on the need to recycle, sustain, preserve, and protect this place we call Mother Earth."
