    KVI revamps lineup, upgrades Kirby Wilbur

    KVI Talkradio 570 is revamping its lineup as of this Monday, June 4. Kirby Wilbur, one of the first local hosts on KVI when it first flipped to conservative talk in the early 90's, will now host a live, daily talk show in the 3-6 pm afternoon slot.

    The new lineup:

    6:00 am - 9:00 am The Commute with Carlson, hosted by John Carlson (live,local)
    9:00 am - 12 Noon Jamie Markley & Dave Van Camp (syndicated, live)
    Noon - 3:00 pm The Lars Larson Show (Northwest edition, live)
    3:00 pm - 6:00 pm The Kirby Wilbur Show (live, local)
    6:00 pm - 9:00 pm The Sean Hannity Show (syndicated, tape delay)
    9:00 pm - Midnight The Savage Nation, hosted by Michael Savage (syndicated, tape delay)
    Midnight - 3:00 am The Red Eye Show (syndicated, live)
    3:00 am - 6:00 am The Lars Larson Show (national edition, syndicated, tape delay)

    ABC News on the hour, local headlines from the KOMO 24 hour news center at the half hour.

    Hey, now that's compelling radio. The "upgrade" should take KVI to #1!

    That's an interesting lineup. When I was going to school in Portland, I used to love Robbins and Markley, so that 9:00-noon show should be a good one. Apparently Scott Robbins is back somewhere else after a heart attack. The one question is, isn't Hanity on KTTH? If not, who's in Hanity's live timeslot?

    No, but at least it's more local and Northwest oriented. Instead of the same national hosts, as there is on many conservative talk stations -- many of those hosts seem to parrot each other a bit too often.

    I root for KVI. They are one of the original Seattle 3-letter calls that still exist, and they have a great history. I'm glad they are trying to keep the thing alive. Remember, this station has a huge heritage with a successful MOR format in the 50's-70's, then a stint as oldies in the 80's that actually was pretty good as live and local. Then they kind of lost their way, but they still have a lot of potential. I wish them good luck, though with Sinclair as owner, I don't want to predict the future.

    Where is it "more local"? Carlson, Wilbur and Larson ("Northwest oriented") were already in the lineup. All that's changed is adding another syndicated show.

    But this is Sinclair we are talking about...they would rather pay a salvage company (using profits from the other stations) to raise the ship back up and pretend it never sank in the first place.

    All they have to do is be able to have the 3 stations as a cluster “in the black” to justify its existence as a small group within the company.
    As we used to say down in ol' Mexico City...A.M.F.!

    This same company is about to own WGN, a stand-alone AM in Chicago. How does that work?
