CAMARILLO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Salem Media Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: SALM) announced today that Salem Radio Network (SRN), in addition to the over two dozen stations adding Townhall News, added two more stations to the News Talk format utilizing the entire SRN Talk Lineup.
KSEI AM 930 in Pocatello, Idaho was joined by KXKS AM 1190 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, switching formats to talk, and taking not only the entire talk lineup of SRN but also Townhall News at the top of the hour.
“We have seen tremendous interest in the NewsTalk format, with this major breaking news cycle we are living through,” said Salem Senior Vice President of Spoken Word Phil Boyce. “These stations see this tremendous interest in breaking news and what to make of it, and they understand only one network is capable of giving them an entire lineup.”
KSEI General Manager Paul Anderson was extremely pleased with the transition. “As the region’s only locally owned and owner-managed station group, we knew the Salem programming lineup on News Talk KSEI, AM 930 was the perfect way to target the listeners in our area of Southeast Idaho…And we couldn’t be happier with the sound, which is fabulous!” said Anderson.
