Programming Changes In the New Year at KFI

This one’s for all you Orange County readers out there. Brentwood and Bel Air folks too. And all the people at the Ronald Reagan museum in Simi Valley. Hoody hoo!

Anyway, KFI AM 640 just announced some programming changes, via its Facebook page. Bill Carroll‘s show is expanding from 2 to 3 hours, noon to three. Carroll came to LA from Canada less than a year ago. He’s apparently picked up the not-so-subtleties of American conservative talk radio pretty well. John and Ken, meanwhile, are back to a four-hour show from 3-7–down from a massive five-hour marathon. And comedy writer Doug Steckler is back with the Tim Conway Jr. show as of this coming Friday night. Steckler was last on the show in 2005 after his contract wasn’t renewed and he was replaced by Brian Whitman.
