Talk Tidbits

* Cincinnati's WSAI (1530) will launch their new liberal talk format next Monday, January 17th. The call letters are rumored to be changing to WCKY. WWRC in Washington, DC will flip from FOX Sports to 'progressive talk' on Inauguration Day, January 20th. No word on another rumored flip, in Los Angeles. KXTA has been the subject of rabid speculation about flipping to talk, but Clear Channel is still dragging their heels. I'll believe that KXTA will flip to liberal talk when they actually do it, so there will be no more word on this until I hear actual substantial rumors.

* KABQ in Albuqueque, NM is doing very well in the Arbitron ratings so far. In the most recent trend report, they have risen from 1.1 to a 1.8. Sounds like another liberal talk success.

* Legendary Chicago AM talker WLS-AM (890) has released Jay Marvin, it's highest profile left-leaning host. "I was way too liberal for the station. It's become very right-wing," said Marvin. According to this article, he could land in Denver at KKZN-AM. Local talker Erin Hart is also rumored to be heading there.
