    The biggest change I've noticed to KOMO since Synclaire took over is the amount of lifestyle programming on weekends. Under Fisher, they had a gardening show on Saturdays, dropped for Tami Michaels and that was it. Now the lineup is as follows:
    Inside Out the original lifestyle program on KOMO.
    Talking Real Money
    The Boom X Show
    Own It
    IRG's Health Talk, moved from KVI
    The Boss Show
    Sip Northwest Live, at least I think this show is still on
    Adventure Awaits, the newest addition to the lineup, didn't realize Seth Wayne was such a travel buff
    Our Auto Expert. That's a lot of programming that's not news on weekends, which is why I asked if KOMO could really be considered all news anymore some months back. Although it was pointed out that WTOP has some similar programming on weekends, it didn't sound like it was nearly as extensive. It sounds like if I turned on WTOP at 11:00 on a Sunday night I might actually still get some local news. On KOMO, you get an update from ABC, then into audio from This Week. Personally I'd move This Week and Perspective earlier and keep the simulcast of KOMO-TV audio at 11.

    Yo dawg. We heard you like drones. So we added more drone inside the AI speech synthesis chips of your radio traffic drones.

    They're not that bad. I listen to KOMO sometimes on weekends when I tire of the other news and info stations.

    If you want to hear boring programming, listen to 1130AM in Vancouver BC, CHMJ (?). Endless traffic. Makes NOAA weather broadcasts sound invigorating.

    Yeah, exaggerating, but not all that much...

    You mean 730, not 1130. I'm kind of intrigued by that station, though if I were in Vancouver it would not be a preset, would likely listen to CKWX 1130.

    I can't tell what CHMJ is. All Traffic or Sports, it was either one or the other when I tuned in

    You're right. For some reason I get those two messed up.

    CKWX 1130 is a bit better. I just don't get CHMJ 730, but I guess it does OK, it gets the job done.

    All-traffic 730. Gotta be one of the few 24 hour a day live and local AMs left out there, anywhere. At least live...I guess they don't have to be local.

    You ought to look at markets like Mexico City and Buenos Aires and Lima and Bogotá... dozens of live and local AM stations.

    The obvious reason is that the governments did not nearsightedly license so many stations to low power and make them directional. No daytimers in any of those markets, and many with power in the 50kw to 100 kw range.

    Unlike TV, Sinclair doesn't seem to exercise any sort of editorial stranglehold on the radio properties. What's the deal?
    Sadly, it's a political (mob mentality) bias against Sinclair as a company.
