The move to emasculate 1450 AM continues.
KZRG, which has made a cottage industry out of grabbing the most popular talk shows from its lowly competitor, has snagged Sean Hannity's show beginning in February 2010, a reader tells The Turner Report.
As noted in earlier posts, the Zimmer Group, which runs KZRG, will have two conservative talk stations in Joplin beginning Au. 3 when 1230 AM, currently a sports talk station, converts. Some programs currently on KZRG, including Dennis Miller, Lara Ingraham, and John Gibson, will move to 1230 at that time, while the Mark Levin and Jason Lewis programs will debut on KZRG.
While sports talk programming from ESPN will vanish from 1230, sports won't. As noted earlier in The Turner Report, St. Louis Cardinals broadcasts will continue, as will sports programming from Missouri Southern State University and Joplin High School.
