Piolin, the loud spanish speaking personality who vanished from the schedule on KMIA, 1210, will be affiliating with a new program supplier, with his own investment, and may be offering his syndicated program once again.

Art Bell, who years ago used to probe conspiracies, ghosts and Chupacabra on the program that became “Coast to Coast AM,” will be returning (on Sirius X-M pay radio service), and will once again be broadcasting from his high-country home studio in Parrumph, Nevada.

Kirby Wilbur, former KVI talker, has taken a job with Young America”s Foundation, conservative group focusing on youths, which operates Reagan Ranch in California, and promises to teach high school and college students the skills that would help them “become the next Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, or Ann Coulter:”

A modified KIRO weekday schedule this month involving the Luke Burbank and John Curley Shows may be the definitive acknowledgement that Burbank is gone. Burbank has been spending much time away from KIRO, working on public-radio activities in Portland Oregon, and Chicago, Illinois.
