The Multiple Formats of 1330 AM

Posted By on Wed, Jul 18, 2012 at 9:30 AM

It's already been an odd week for KWFM 1330 AM. The station surprised listeners with an apparent format switch from its liberal talk lineup to music, with Alan Michaels at the helm. However, as of Tuesday afternoon it was back to talk, and figures to stay that way for the meantime. Michaels, the station's Operation Manager, says KWFM had satellite issues over the weekend, and the equipment malfunction affected most of the station's syndicated talk programming.

KWFM wasn't able to get the issue fixed until Tuesday, so Michaels in a pinch did what he's done for decades as one of the market's best known music personalities: play music. But now that the satellite equipment is up and running again, so is the station's syndicated lineup of progressive talk fare.
