KIRO FM Shakeup

Rosalind Brazel / January 9, 2013

kiro radio logoAudience feedback has led to a shakeup at KIRO Radio. John Curley is no longer the voice you wake up to. Linda Thomas and Dave Ross are now the morning drive time team. Management says the feedback they were getting from listeners was a request for straight-forward news, traffic and weather first thing in the morning. The talk shows are better received later in the day.

Dave Ross will split duties for the Ross/Burbank show. He’ll co-host the first hour with Luke Burbank and other contributors will fill in with Burbank for the 10 to 11 a.m. segments.

    I like John Curley and his off the wall comments, but agree that we are looking for the news, traffic and weather on our way to work. Thank you,

    One other note, I am glad to have Linda Thomas back in the morning.

    Thank God. I had left Kiro after many years of being a faithful listener. I am in the car alot. Love the rest of the line up. Just couldn't do the Curley thing especially that early in the morning. Please don't overwork Dave Ross. I still am waiting for Tony Minor to have his own show. He is a bright and shining personality.
