KRLA-AM Beefs Up Morning Drive Team

On his podcast, LA radio vet Brian Whitman recently tipped today’s big news – he and Ben Shapiro have officially joined Heidi Harris weekday mornings on Salem Communications Corp. stations KRLA-AM 870 and KTIE-AM 590 in San Bernardino:

“I’d like to continue to do podcasting with Todd Perry and John Norten,” Whitman explained during episode #47. Then switching to his Tom Leykis impersonation, he added, “You can email me or let me know on Twitter and Facebook… I’ve got to figure this out.”

Vegas Radio Personality Hopes to Have LA ‘Answer’

This week, KRLA 870 AM operates under the slogan “Intelligent. Conservative. Talk Radio.” and offers Glenn Beck weekday mornings from 6am to 9am. But that will change next week when Las Vegas radio personality Heidi Harris takes over his slot while the station as a whole gets rechristened as “The Answer.”

Owner Salem Communications, which did a similar re-branding trick recently with WNYM 970 AM in New York City, is folding both KRLA and Inland Empire sister station KTIE 590 AM under this new “Answer” umbrella. For Harris, it’s a move to a major market after a rather unusual start thirteen years ago in Sin City. From the press release:

Harris was first heard on the air on KDWN in Las Vegas in 1998 during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, when she volunteered to go on the station for free. Her unique take on that issue and others caught the attention of crosstown competitor KXNT, where she became co-host of the morning show in 1999.

A Dynamic UK Correspondent Duo

There is perhaps no better measure of the social media era we live in than the fact that while we are only intermittently able to visit the websites of British newspapers The Independent and the Financial Times, we make a point of checking into the Twitter feeds of their respective L.A.-based west coast correspondents on an almost daily basis.

It’s hard to resist a pair of journalists – Guy Adams (pictured left) and Matthew Garrahan (below) – whose pithy Twitter profiles so expertly tap the varicose vein of dry British humor. The Independent‘s Adams states that “according to our lawyers [I] must also say here that I sometimes tweet in a personal capacity,” while the Financial Times‘ Garrahan proclaims that he is “available for weddings, birthdays and bar mitzvahs.”
