As of today the station has changed call letters to KFNQ, with a likely branding of “The Fan” to match many of its CBS Radio brethren coming. SeaTacRadio.com is reporting that Talk 1180 KLAY Lakewood/Tacoma will pick up the syndicated Ed Schulz and Stephanie Miller following 1090’s shift to Sports in January.
The Everett Post run by the operator of two stations in that city states that KFNQ will add a local afternoon show.
KPTK registered a 0.8 share of the audience in the October ratings. The shift to Sports will place it in direct competition with Clear Channel’s 950/102.9 KJR and Bonneville’s “710 ESPN” KIRO which combined for a 7 share in the same monthly. CBS Sports Radio will debut on January 2 with a national lineup including Jim Rome, Doug Gottlieb, and Scott Ferrall.
