Len Tillem and Gene Burns, two of the hosts KGO-AM fired when it switched to all-news from noon to midnight, have been hired by Clear Channel to do shows on the soon-to-be-reformatted 910 AM, according to media blogger Rich Lieberman.
Tillem, formerly KGO’s “loyah,” will do his show from 3 to 4 p.m., followed by Burns from 4 to 7.
CC is moving most of the KNEW 910 programming to its 960 frequency on Jan. 3, and moving the liberal talk “Green 960” format to KKSF-FM 103.5’s HD2 channel.
Back at 910, Armstrong and Getty will continue to do the morning drive, simulcasting on KSTE-AM Sacramento. Two syndicated shows will be heard midday, Clark Howard from 10 a.m. to noon, and Tom Sullivan, noon-3 p.m.
The new 960 will air entirely syndicated programming: conservative Glenn Beck mornings, financial adviser Dave Ramsey 9-noon, liberal host Randi Rhodes noon-3, and conservative John Gibson during afternoon drive. Beck, Ramsey and Gibson had been on 910 a.m.
