Left talk may leave Seattle.
The end of the election seasons is taking a toll on progressive talk in the Pacific Northwest. The Everett Post reports CBS Radio will flip “Progressive Talk 1090” KPTK, Seattle to an affiliate of its CBS Sports Radio network. The station has changed its call letters to KFNQ, hinting at a “Fan” branding. If accurate, the station would take on “710 ESPN” KIRO, sports KJR (950, 102.9) and “Fox Sports 1380” KRKO. Clear Channel dumped liberal talk from KPOJ, Portland for sports last week.
