Labor Day saw the format flip of McKeesport's 1360 from a talk station to a business/financial format and expects a daily talk show to begin September 15. That's when "Pittsburgh Renaissance Radio" will start airing weekdays from 3 - 6 pm. The program is aimed at local business issues and breaking stories surrounding local businesses. Ron Morris (host of "American Entrepreneur"), John Poister and Darryl Grandy are behind the program. The program will have a variety of hosts including former WPTT talk show host Jerry Bowyer. Morris will also host the show while Poister will anchor hourly business reports. Until the program launches, three syndicated programs will air in its place.
KDKA Radio NOT for sale
CBS Radio is not planning to sell KDKA-AM (1020) or St. Louis' KMOX-AM (1120) but their respective FM sisters are listed. For Pittsburgh that means WBZW-FM (93.7), WZPT-FM (100.7) and WDSY-FM (107.9) are all apparently on the block.
