SPIRIT OF ALASKA BROADCASTING Talk KBYR-A/ANCHORAGE has been informed by PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS that it will lose GLENN BECK's show to another station in the market. GM JUSTIN MCDONALD tells ALL ACCESS that the syndicator gave no indication which other station is taking BECK's show.
The move means that KBYR will add additional hours to SALEM's DENNIS PRAGER (now 8-11a) and PREMIERE/CITADEL's SEAN HANNITY (11a-2p) to fill BECK's 10a-noon slot.
