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.

Well that rocks! All the progressive talk has been out here in WMass for far too long. When we drive east it feels like we're driving into the past. Folks should send congrats to The Zone:

No one listens to the Zone. It's amazing how much coverage it gets considering it has no audience.
