Another Format Flip For KGIL
August 27, 2009 at 11:33 AM (PT)
MOUNT WILSON FM BROADCASTERS Talk KGIL-A/LOS ANGELES spins the format wheel yet again and drops Talk for a form of Adult Standards/AC as "RETRO 1260" that the station is calling "timeless music for all ages."
Former crosstown CLEAR CHANNEL AC KOST midday host MIKE SAKELLARIDES is signing on for 8a-noon, starting MONDAY (8/31).
The format flip is scheduled for 5p TODAY. KGIL had recently lost TALK RADIO NETWORK's LAURA INGRAHAM to CBS RADIO's pending Talk convert KFWB-A and had dropped some other shows, going with music after 4p weekdays.
The station has had several formats over the years, including multiple stints with Adult Standards and formats like all-traffic, all-news, Jazz, Classical, and all-BEATLES. Simulcast partner XESURF-A/TIJUANA-SAN DIEGO will flip to brokered Spanish-language programming.
