Bonneville news/talk 97.3 KIRO-FM has partnered with Hubbard’s Seattle music stations to provide hourly news breaks for the duration of the COVID-19 virus epidemic. CHR “Movin’ 92.5” KQMV, “Warm 106.9” KRWM & country “98.9 The Bull” KNUC will all broadcast hourly news updates allowing their listeners to stay connected to the latest pandemic information. In return, KIRO-FM will encourage listeners to pause from the news and listen to the music stations as a source of encouragement and relaxation during these trying times. This collaboration will go into effect on Friday, March 27. Bonneville Seattle Media Group Director of Programming Mike Salk told Radio Online “To have KIRO Radio news played on three excellent music stations is an opportunity for us help our community stay informed in this unique time. And we can understand the need to take a break and listen to music to avoid feeling overwhelmed.” The article that appeared today also quoted Hubbard Radio/Seattle Market Manager Scott G. Mahalick: “Music is a mood elevator and a source of inspiration for people when times are tough. We’re proud to partner with Bonneville’s news, talk and sports radio stations in Seattle. Combined, we are able to offer the perfect balance of information and entertainment.”
