    Ground Zero get the boot….but they keep 7 hours of George Noory?? If you’re gonna do 7 hours of “conspiracy”,it would make a lot more sense for 2 hours of Ground Zero THEN George Noory at 11pm/

      No surprise there, Doc. This is directly modeled on the success we’re enjoying at KFBK in Sacramento, where we do:

      5-9 a.m. The KFBK Morning News with Ed Crane and Amy Lewis
      9 to 12 Rush Limbaugh
      12-3 p.m.Tom Sullivan
      3-4 p.m. John McGinness
      4-7 p.m. The KFBK Afternoon News with Kitty O’Neal
      7-10 p.m. The Pat Walsh Show
      10-4 a.m. Coast To Coast AM with George Noory
      4-5 a.m.. The Wall Street Journal This Morning

      We’re live and local 11 hours out of the day (Morning News, John McGinness, Afternoon News, Pat Walsh), and have the added benefit that both Rush and Tom were local hosts before going national and have been on our air the entire time.

      Bet on seeing more of this.
