The former show hosts on 1210AM have moved quickly in finding new homes following the format change on 1210AM “The Score” from sports-talk to gospel.
The first to land a position was Buddy Songy. His new home will be on 1590 KKAY from 1pm-3pm starting Thursday, January 5th. Songy hosted Buddy’s Sports Talk on 1210 from noon until 3pm.
Joining Songy at KKAY will be Jordy Hultberg who will keep his same time slot that he had while at 1210AM. Starting Monday, January 9th, the same day as the BCS national championship between LSU and Alabama, Hultberg will hit the airwaves from 7am-9am.
1590 KKAY is a 1,000 watt station which broadcasts out of White Castle, Louisiana. Ironically when KKAY isn’t broadcasting local sports talk they air gospel and Christian music.
In a recent interview with The Business Report, regional programming manager Bob Murphy stated that “The timing of the national championship was really coincidental. It was purely a business decision, and all of the contracts ended on Dec. 31,” and that some of the half-dozen sports programs formerly on “The Score” will likely reappear on WJBO, Murphy says, but the details are yet to be finalized.

Condon will also have his own all-sports talk show on Sunday mornings from 9am-noon on WJBO as well.

Word is that there is some yet unannounced news concerning Jimmy Ott and a move to another station.
