Programming

Current programming is a mixture of political talk with syndicated hosts Neal Boortz, G. Gordon Liddy, and Bill O'Reilly and sports talk with Tim Brando and Shreveport Times sports editor Tim Fletcher.

As of the 2006 NFL season, KRMD is the local affiliate for the Dallas Cowboys. It also carries games of the independent baseball team, the Shreveport Sports.

History

Until 2005, this was "1340 The Zone" and was the only all-sports station in the "Ark-La-Tex." Today, the nearest such outlet is KRRP in Coushatta, about 60 miles south of Shreveport. KRRP has a signal powerful enough to reach Shreveport during the day, but is essentially impossible to receive there at night.

Construction permit

On January 26, 2006, the station was granted a construction permit by the Federal Communications Commission to alter the station's coverage patterns with different daytime and nighttime signals, although the power would remain at 1000 watts both day and night.[2] This construction permit expires on January 26, 2009.
