(FARGO, ND) – Fargo-based Flag Family Media along with two of its stations, AM 1100 The Flag WZFG / FM 92.3 (Fargo) and AM 1090 The Flag KTGO / FM 92.7 (Tioga), have announced two major changes to its weekday programming.
After Rush Limbaugh died on February 17, 2021, KTGO and WZFG both began researching how to replace the Rush Limbaugh schedule on their stations. Through a verification process, which included various programming options and the ability to have listeners speak out, Flag Family Media announced on Friday that it would add two new voices to the regular weekday programming of its stations. Fargo and Tioga.
Starting Monday, June 21, The Charlie Kirk Show will fill the 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. slot on WZFG and KTGO.
“Charlie Kirk had the respect of Rush Limbaugh. He spent some quality time with Rush learning the genius of what made the Golden EIB microphone produce radio magic, ”said Scott Hennen, co-owner of Flag Family Media. “Charlie Kirk has earned his place to become the voice of young conservatives with the success of TP-USA. Now is the perfect time to bring your voice to the radio and fill the void we all feel since the loss of RUSH. It simplifies the complex and gives the conservative movement hope for the future in these troubled times.
Hennen said listeners to The Flag praised Kirk.
“We gave them a vote,” Hennen said. “And the P1s flooded us with confidence that Charlie Kirk would quickly become a radio must-see. He is the future. He has the power of a star. And he wants us to win. As broadcasters and as Americans.
Additionally, The Flag announced that Jimmy Failla and his radio show, Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, will be replacing the Sean Hannity Show in the 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. slot on WZFG and KTGO, starting June 28. Failla is exploding onto the scene in conservative circles and giving an “every man’s perspective” from all corners of the country.
“These decisions are always tough, but with Charlie Kirk and Jimmy Failla, we believe we have two of the brightest young stars in the conservative movement,” said Steve Hallstrom, president and managing partner of Flag Family Media. “Together, they will provide us with great information and entertainment as we serve a new generation of curators.”
