CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO Oldies KWFM-A (COOL 1450)/TUCSON will flip to all-Comedy "FUNNY 1450" TOMORROW (1/26) at 10a. The Oldies format will segue to the HD2 channel for KTZR 97.1 , including morning host ALAN MICHAELS.
Funny 1450 will be the second affiliate of 24/7 Comedy Radio, which features continuous stand-up comedy from the likes of DANE COOK, CHRIS ROCK, JERRY SEINFELD and JEFF FOXWORTHY. "We believe there is a good appetite for comedy and that FUNNY 1450 will become a TUCSON favorite for many in the coming months," CLEAR CHANNEL/TUCSON OM TIM RICHARDS said.
"The station is already creating some excitement as this is the first-ever station format of its kind to debut in the OLD PUEBLO," FUNNY 1450 PD CHRIS PATYK. added. "There is nothing like this on any of the terrestrial stations in TUCSON. The AM band has been a funny thing to listeners. Some don’t know how to find it on their car radio, which in itself is funny. Now, it’s funnier and we’re going to make sure people find it! We’re all fans of comedy and FUNNY 1450 will make new fans ... it’s hip, fast-moving and, actually lives up to its name."
