Bill Buckmaster Is on the Move

Posted By on Thu, Apr 7, 2011 at 11:31 AM

Bill Buckmaster, who left his longtime anchor gig at KUAT-TV's Arizona Illustrated to launch a new radio show at the beginning of 2011, is moving to a new station. The details:

First, let me thank you for your support of my work over the years and especially over the past four months. I am delighted to report your response has been outstanding, with many of you saying a program presenting the facts and both sides of the issues has been long overdue on Arizona Radio. Now, I have a wonderful opportunity to expand the reach of the program, allowing us to have our show be heard by all Southern Arizonans.

As of June 1, the Buckmaster Show will have a new home on KVOI, “The Voice” AM 1030. The station has one of the strongest AM signals in Arizona. In addition, our program will also be simulcast on two other stations with outstanding reach, KAPR AM 930 in Douglas and KJAA AM 1240 in Globe.

Buckmaster, who has been doing a great job of bringing local issues to light and giving a wide variety of voices a chance to speak out, will remain on KJLL for the rest of this month and take May off to retool the show before starting up again in June.
