Griffin Communications will flip News/Talk “TalkRadio 1170” KFAQ Tulsa to Sports “The Blitz” on Monday, August 23.
The new format will be led by Jeremie ‘Pop’ Poplin, who has served as Program Director and 10am-12pm host on KFAQ since February 2020. Poplin previously programmed and hosted afternoons at iHeartMedia Sports “1430 The Buzz” KTBZ and “1300 The Buzz” KAKC Tulsa.
Poplin tweeted that the Blitz will feature local programming from 6am to 6pm, but has not disclosed what that will entail. KFAQ will continue to serve as the Tulsa affiliate for Oklahoma State University sports and Jenks High School football.
The “Blitz” name comes from the weekly “Oklahoma Sports Blitz” that airs on Griffin’s CBS television affiliates KWTV Oklahoma City and KOTV Tulsa on Sunday evenings.
