Best (?) Radio Station Most Likely to Be Something Else When You Wake Up the Next Morning
WKRP in Cincinnati wishes it was 1330 AM. The combination liberal talk/brokered local programming AM with a struggling signal is an indication that sometimes "locally owned" doesn't necessarily translate to "smoothly run." Formerly KJLL, aka The Jolt, AM 1330 was never a well-oiled machine, but since the arrival of Dawn Avalon, it's gone through an entire employee overhaul, has severed ties with numerous brokered shows, and changed its call letters, the last two of which are now "FM." The station broadcasts lefty political talk for most of the day, but not too long ago, it resorted to live music while waiting on satellite repairs. So, who knows what the future will bring? Will 1330 change formats? Will 1330 change call letters? Will 1330 just uproot the antenna on prime land in the foothills? Stay tuned.
