iHeartMedia completed its realignment of its Seattle cluster this morning with the launch of Conservative Talk “1090 The Patriot” KPTR.
The station will feature a lineup of Premiere Networks programming including Glenn Beck from 6-9am, Clay Travis and Buck Sexton from 9am-12pm, Sean Hannity from 12-3pm, and Jesse Kelly from 3-6pm. Hannity moves from an evening clearance on Lotus’ 570 KVI to a live airing on KPTR. The other shows did not have clearances in the Seattle market. KPTR joins a crowded Conservative Talk marketplace in Seattle that includes KVI, Bonneville’s “770 The Truth” KTTH, and Salem’s “1590 The Answer” KLFE.
Formerly branded as “1090 KJR“, KPTR had changed call letters last month from KFNQ. Its lineup of national programming from Fox Sports Radio and CBS Sports Radio will now be heard on 950 KJR.
KJR’s local programming will be exclusively on “93.3 KJR” KUBE. KUBE had flipped to a simulcast of 950 KJR on March 8, beginning the transition of its programming from the AM to the former Hip Hop FM.
