KTTH Seattle Revamps Lineup, Adds Saul Spady to Mornings
|RADIO ONLINE | Friday, January 11, 2019|
KTTH-AM Seattle announced a revamped lineup for its "conservative commute." "The Saul Spady Show" (pictured) will air weekday mornings from 6-9am, a new addition to the Bonneville Tak outlet's lineup. "The Jason Rantz Show" headlines weekday afternoons from 3-6pm and the syndicated "Ben Shapiro Show" expands to weeknights from 6-9pm.
"The 'Conservative Commute' has never been more fresh and dynamic," said VP/Market Manager Dave Pridemore. "Between Rantz, Medved and the addition of Spady, we're positioned to continue to be the region's most dominant and local conservative station."
Spady is very active in local politics, most recently leading a grassroots effort to repeal Seattle's Amazon head tax. An accomplished small businessman and lifelong Washingtonian, Spady's family is very well known to the region, his grandfather the founder of the iconic Dick's Drive-In. He is passionate about helping people tell their stories and establish a millennial voice in Washington state.
"I'm excited for this opportunity to create a new type of conservative talk radio show in mornings that gives a 21st century perspective both locally and nationally," said Spady. "I hope to connect with listeners both new & old, transplant & local alike in our quest to create a rational opposition to the rudderless leadership we have in Seattle & Olympia."
Rantz moves to afternoon drive after handling mornings for over a year. He's appeared on FOX News, NBC Nightly News, KIRO, KING and KOMO television and in The Seattle Times. His blog has become the most-viewed on MyNorthwest.com.
"I'm excited to take over afternoon drive and continue tackling the stories that impact everyone's daily lives," Rantz said. "From homelessness and the opioid epidemic, to the war on cars and demonization of cops, there are a lot of issues we need to shine a light on or champion, and I look forward to continuing the conversations in the afternoon."
