COX RADIO's previously tipped (NET NEWS 5/29) flip of Top 40/Rhythmic KPWT (POWER 106.7)/SAN ANTONIO to Talk launched at 5p CT TODAY as THE NEW FM TALK 106.7, SAN ANTONIO'S NEXT GENERATION OF TALK RADIO with a lineup that includes TALK RADIO NETWORK's MANCOW MULLER 5-8a, DIAL GLOBAL's NEAL BOORTZ 8-11a, TRN's LAURA INGRAHAM 11a-2p, DIAL GLOBAL's CLARK HOWARD 2-5p, TRN's MICHAEL SAVAGE 5-9p, TAKE ON THE DAY LLC's DR, LAURA SCHLESSINGER 9p-midnight, TRN's PHIL HENDRIE midnight-3a, and TRN's JERRY DOYLE 3-5a. The station is affiliated with CNN RADIO.
The flip took place after a weekend all-CHRISTMAS music stunt as "SANTA 106.7." The format started with a statement from BOORTZ joking about the CHRISTMAS stunt and introducing the new lineup ("a station like nothing SAN ANTONIO has ever seen").
