Michael Jackson returns, but not on KABC

The ill-considered move to make AM 1260 a classical music station has officially failed, and owner Saul Levine is planning to resurrect the call letters KGIL and become a talk station. Michael Jackson, who anchored KABC's talk lineup for 32 years until the Rush Limbaugh revolution washed over local radio, will be the main personality and hold down 9 to 11 am. Larry King, syndicated libertarian talker Neal Boortz and radio psychologist Joy Browne are also on the schedule. LA Times, LA, Franklin Avenue, Jackson's site
