Talk radio station KGIL-AM (1260) unveiled a revamped lineup Monday that left out hosts Laura Ingraham, Michael Savage, Monica Crowley and John Ziegler. Added were former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) and CNN veteran Larry King, plus a big dose of music from the Great American Songbook that was once a staple on the station.
Ziegler, a former host at KFI-AM (640) who had joined KGIL last June, told fans in an e-mail Monday that the station would be switching to an all-music format. KGIL officials declined to comment on that report or the reasons for the changes made Monday.
Ingraham was due to move next month to KFWB-AM (980) when it converts from all-news to talk programming.
Thompson’s show is airing from 9 to 11 a.m. weekdays, with a repeat from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. King follows at 1 p.m.
