KFNK has switched call letters to KSGX. The station recently switched to a Modern Rock format as GenX 104.9
The KVI morning show with Tom Hutyler and Marina Rockinger debuts Monday morning. The remainder of the airstaff come aboard on January 3, 2011.
“The first Music, News, Personality and Information station on Seattle’s AM dial.” Monday, November 8, 2010 – KVI will flip format from conservative talk to Oldies. Fisher broke the news this week that the talk-talk-yak-yak would end and the Oldies would spin once again on 57 KVI.
KVI was programming Oldies when the station switched to Rush Limbaugh in the early 90s. That was a move KVI made due to the ratings decline of music stations on the AM band. So, what has changed? This may be only temporary, as it seems that Fisher would just as likely sell off KVI if the price was right. We don’t expect the format to last, but the on-air line-up [debuting January 3rd] includes Tom Hutyler and Marina Rockinger during the morning commute, Mark Christopher for the afternoon drive home and Ric Hansen in the evening. Pretty damn good for starters!
Sue Romero, formerly with KOMO and KBSG, Bill Rice, formerly with KOMO and KJR, and Ana Kelly, formerly with KOMO, KPLZ and KBSG will provide local news, traffic and information. Program Director Travis Box stays aboard.
