Fans of the Armstrong and Getty radio show got some good news this week. Clear Channel Media and Entertainment San Francisco announced Thursday that the popular show hosted by Jack Armstrong and Joe Getty will return to its full four hour 6-10 a.m. time slot in the Bay Area next month.
As previously reported, in Jan. 2012, Rush Limbaugh moved from KSFO to News Talk 910 (KKSF), taking over the 9 a.m. to noon slot and bumping off the last hour of the A&G show in the Bay Area. The show's flagship station, KSTE, continued to broadcast the full four hours of the show in Sacramento.
Starting Jan. 1, 2014, The Rush Limbaugh Show will move down the dial in the Bay Area to KNEW 960 AM in its usual 9 a.m. to noon slot.
Vice President of Programming for Clear Channel San Francisco, Don Parker, stated in a press release, “We are excited to continue to grow the live and local programming on Talk 910 with the expansion of the Armstrong & Getty show. We’re also thrilled to welcome the Bay’s leading midday Talk personality, Randi Rhodes, to Talk 910. With these adjustments, our already impressive growth will only be enhanced in 2014. At the same time, the new line-up on 960 KNEW will be a destination for conservative listeners who follow America’s top personalities – all in one place.”
The Armstrong and Getty show got another big boost in June when San Diego station KFMB began airing the show. KFMB runs A&G 6-9 a.m. with the last hour lopped off to give the Mike Slater show a full three hours.
Earlier this year, Armstrong and Getty changed their voter registration affiliation to the Libertarian Party. If you are not familiar with the duos' political philosophy, a speech they gave before the Conservative Forum in Dec. 2012 is posted above.
