The Zone will have plenty of Left in the air
It's been nearly two years since WKOX AM 1200/WXKS AM 1430 stopped carrying Air America Network and changed over to Latin music format Rumba. However, some progressive talk is about to make a re-entry via a new spot on the dial. Beginning Monday December 1, talkshow host Jeff Santos who briefly had a Sunday afternoon local show on WKOX/WXKS two years ago will launch a new morning talk program on WWZN AM 1510 from 6am to 9am. Recently, Santos hosted a daily one-hour afternoon show on the Zone prior to the election. At night, the Zone will also carry another new progressive talk show from 6pm to 9pm(Update : the new nighttime show will be hosted by San Francisco-based Peter B. Collins whose 3-hour show is currently aired on a seven station network in CA, MT, OR and WA).
As for sports, the station will still have a number of shows in the line-up. "Young Guns Radio" which currently occupies the 7am-9am slot on the Zone will move back to the afternoons. More details on new progressive talk programming and line-up changes at the Zone will be announced shortly.
