Changes to 'Money 101' on KNX

Ever wonder why KNX Newsradio didn't do much news in the late morning? Wonder no more. Bob McCormick's three-hour block talking about business will be dropped on August 13, in favor of short reports through the day. The KNX Business Hour with Frank Mottek will hold down 1 to 2 pm. The memo from VP/Programming David G. Hall with the new AM 1070 lineup is below.

Subject: KNX Programming Changes

At the beginning of the year when I took over the programming of KNX exclusively, I began the process of streamlining our programming towards all-news, while respecting the quality feature programming we've developed. We are now taking another major step in that direction.....

Effective Monday, August 13th, MONEY 101 with Bob McCormick will change. We will no longer do a three hour show every day. Bob will instead produce the very same content in shorter segments that will run as a feature in morning and afternoon drive. This way, the very valuable, popular, and unique content Bob and Money 101 are now known for will fit much better into the all news format.

So on that Monday, we start doing news again between 9am and noon. Tom Haule and Linda Nunez will anchor that news. Our new daytime lineup will be:

Dave Williams and Vicky Moore 5am-9am
Tom Haule and Linda Nunez 9am-1pm
KNX Business Hour with Frank Mottek 1pm-2pm
Tom Haule 2pm-3pm
Jim Thornton and Diane Thompson 3p-7p
Larry Van Nuys 7p-12a
Jack Salvatore 12a-5a

Bob will do morning drive business reporting plus the Money 101 features. We will be integrating these features with web programming even more.

This also involves several off-air moves to make sure we're adequately covered in the newsroom. Those will be announced separately.
