KGO Sets New Lineup As Ronn Owens Moves To Commentator Role

Posted: 14 Jan 2018 01:00 PM PST

From RadioInsight

After hosting a daily talk show at Cumulus News/Talk 810 KGO San Francisco
since 1975, Ronn Owens announced on Friday that he will move to a
commentator role effective immediately.

Owens will host a daily commentary segment airing from 12:50 to 1:00pm
starting on Tuesday, January 16 that the San Francisco Chronicle quotes
Owens as stating, “My goal is to be a 2018 version of Paul Harvey and Andy
Rooney. The move comes as Owens previous contract with Cumulus Media
expired at the end of 2017 and the new deal allows the company to save
money. Cumulus previously attempted to move Owens over to afternoons at
sister Conservative Talk 560 KSFO in April 2016, but either listener demand
or a loophole in Owens contract depending on which story you believe kept
him at KGO but losing the 9am hour of his program. Owens was the only daily
KGO host that was retained following Cumulus ill-fated move of KGO to
mostly News in 2011.

Owens is not the only KGO host who will be losing his daily slot. 2-4pm
host Brian Copeland wrote on Facebook that his show will no longer be part
of the daily lineup but that management would like his to remain with the
station in some fashion.

While not officially announced, Rich Lieberman shared an internal Cumulus
memo announcing the new weekday lineup. Current 12-2pm host Ethan Bearman
will move to 10am-1250pm. KGO will add a simulcast of Dr. Drew Midday Live
hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky and Mike Catherwood from sister 790 KABC Los
Angeles from 1-3pm. Afternoon host Chip Franklin will see his show expanded
one hour to run from 3-7pm. Armstrong & Gettys syndicated show will remain
in mornings from 5-10am.

FCC Report 1/14 (Premium Sample): Hubbard Gets Another Shot At Minneapolis

Posted: 14 Jan 2018 12:00 PM PST

From RadioInsight

This is a free preview of our weekly FCC Report normally only available to
our Premium Subscribers. In addition to the FCC Report you will also get
access to our regular Domain Insight reports for just $5 per month.√ó
FCC Actions

Hubbard Radio has been granted its Petition For Reconsideration over the
Informal Objections filed by Thomas-Dale District 7 Planning Council and
Jeff Sibert to relocate 94.9 K235BI Bemidji MN to 94.1 in Minneapolis with
2w horizontal/246m rebroadcasting Sports 1500 ESPN KSTP St. Paul. The
objectors alleged the translator would create interference to 94.1 WFNU-LP
St. Paul, but after suggesting 104.9 would be a usable frequency for the
translator (which it cannot be after the grant of K285CQ St. Paul this
week) and Hubbard dropped the proposed power from 10 watts to 2, the FCC
could not find any WFNU-LP listener address which would be within the 60dBu
contour of the translator.

For the third time Salem Media has struck out on a frequency for its
attempted move of what was 103.1 K276FZ Eaglemount WA into Portland to
rebroadcast Conservative Talk 1640 KDZR Lake Oswego OR. First it sought to
move to 94.3 (where Bustos Media Regional Mexican 94.3 La Zeta KZZR
Government Camp argued it would cause destructive interference). Then 107.9
where Extra Mile Media Christian Hope 107.9 KHPE Albany disputed its move.
Most recently Salem sought a move to 105.5 where Portland Russian Media
Centers co-channel KXRU-LP Portland documented it would create interference
for at least six of its listeners at their locations.

The FCC has dismissed Ted Schobers Petition For Reconsideration of the
eligibility criterion for the July 2017 AM Translator Filing Window.
Schober sought reconsideration of the criterion excluding applicants who
previously filed applications in the two 2016 250 mile modification windows
however the merits were never even discussed as it was dismissed as being a
late-filed request.

Educational Media Foundations proposal to change the city of license of
107.5 KILV Castana IA to Whiting IA has been dismissed as it would
eliminate the sole local service to Castana over EMFs argument that it is
no longer a licensable community as it has no governing board, no full-time
employee, no school, no medical facility, no public business, and only one
church and one paved road. The FCC states that as Castana is still a Census
Designated Place and incorporated it is and should remain the COL.
FCC Orders

Wendolynn Tellez 103.3 KSAG Pearsall TX has been fined $8,000 for willfully
and repeatedly failing to comply with the commissions rules by operating at
a variance to its licensed parameters at two different time periods. It did
reject Alpha Medias Informal Objection to withhold the stations license
renewal until it completes its move to move to 93.3 which is impeding with
Alphas ability to launch its 103.3 KPER Pearsall.

Chisolm Trail Communications Classic Hits 95.3 K-Hits KOME Meridian TX has
been fined $7,000 for failing to file a timely license renewal application
and continuing to operate the station following its license expiration.
KOMEs license was set to expire of March 5, 2016 requiring a renewal
application to be filed by 11/5/2015. It did not do so until April 7, 2016
along with an STA application to continue operating while the renewal
application was pending. The licensee claimed that when it acquired KOME in
April 2015 it was not aware it had only a two year renewal term.

JHT Ventures 1090 KULF Bellville TX was issued a Notice of Violation for
operating beyond its licensed daytime parameters on December 11 and 12,
2017. KULF was observed by FCC agents broadcasting at 6:00pm which was a
half hour past its authorized sign-off time for that time of year.

San Antonio Public Safety Alliances 96.9 KXTJ-LP San Antonio TX has been
issued a Notice of Violation for a lack of an EAS log.
FM Changes

Cedar Cove Broadcasting seeks to move 89.5 KAZK Willcox AZ to 89.7 in
Catalina while upgrading from a Class A to C2. The station would operate
from Mount Lemmon just north of Tucson with a directional 250w/1202m but in
compliance with the Rural Radio rule and Mexican spacing would be unable to
further upgrade its signal in Tucson proper.

Christian Broadcasting Group of Mountain Home applies to upgrade Christian
90.3 KCAV Marshall AR from 57w/206m to 1.2kW/206m from its current antenna.

After filing to transfer 88.7 KTFH Lees Camp OR to Rouge Radio last month,
Cascade Community Radio has instead decided to turn in the license as it
needed to remove its ownership stake prior to the last possible date it
could sign-on 101.5 KDOO-LP Portland on January 5.

The following Construction Permits saw their licenses deleted as they went
unbuilt in time:

Cochise Media Licenses 101.1 KXOA Fredonia AZ
JER Licenses LLC 103.9 KEKI Peach Springs AZ
Immaculate Heart Media 91.5 KIHM-FM Hatch NM

Translator Changes

An additional 180 applications from the July 2017 AM translator filing
period were granted Construction Permits this week. B&M Broadcasting has
requested that its application for 105.9 in Wilmington NC to rebroadcast
Oldies 1340 WLSG Wilmington be dismissed. WLSG already holds a translator
on 94.1 in Wilmington but the new facility wouldve operated at 200w as
opposed to 150w from the same 130m antenna.

See that status of all of the translator applications in our subscriber
exclusive sortable table.
