CBS News-Talk KRLD-A/DALLAS adds an hour to the KRLD AFTERNOON NEWS, adding 2-3p to the afternoon news block and slicing it off ERNIE BROWN and JAY MCFARLAND's midday show. ERNIE AND JAY continue 10a-3p.
"1080 KRLD is the news leader of NORTH TEXAS, and this will only help solidify that position," said VP/Talk Programming/CBS RADIO DALLAS GAVIN SPITTLE. "Our goal is to provide as much information as possible, and an extra hour of our award-winning local newscast gives us more time to bring NORTH TEXANS the news they are seeking."
"ERNIE AND JAY will now be four hours of live and local talk; which is still more than the other AM Talk stations can provide in the midday," added SPITTLE. "This move will allow them to be more proactive in gathering and creating topics to provide four great hours of talk during the day."
