ROSE CITY RADIO Talk KXL-A and Sports KXTG (SPORTSRADIO 95.5 THE GAME)/PORTLAND PD JAMES DERBY makes some changes, effective MARCH 2nd, that give the FM more local content.
On THE GAME, the station is moving its local "WHEELS AFTER WORK" 6-8p evening show with PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS voice BRIAN WHEELER to noon-3p PT as "WHEELS AT WORK," replacing FOX SPORTS RADIO's CHRIS MYERS and STEVE HARTMAN. JOHN STRONG moves into the 6-7p PT slot. That gives the station 10 hours a day of local talk, interrupted only by PREMIERE's JIM ROME 9a-noon. The station carries FOX SPORTS RADIO overnights and weekends.
At KXL, PREMIERE's GLENN BECK moves from 6-9p PT to 9a-noon, filling the gap to be left when WESTWOOD ONE's "THE RADIO FACTOR WITH BILL O'REILLY" ends its run. LARS LARSON's local/statewide show will shoft from 11a-3p to noon-4p, with MICHAEL SAVAGE shifting an hour later to 4-7p. The station is adding ABC RADIO NETWORKS' CURTIS SLIWA for 7-10p PT (live) and RADIO AMERICA's ROGER HEDGECOCK for 10p-midnight.
