dbo:abstract
  • KMBZ (980 kHz; "Talk 980"), is a commercial AM radio station licensed to Kansas City, Missouri. KMBZ is owned by Entercom Communications and it airs a talk radio format. Its studios and transmitter tower are in suburban Mission, Kansas, at separate locations. After a local morning drive time news show, simulcast with co-owned 98.1 KMBZ-FM, KMBZ's weekday schedule is made up of nationally syndicated talk programs including Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Tom Sullivan, Joe Pags, Laura Ingraham and Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. World and national news is supplied at the beginning of each hour by ABC News Radio. Weekend programming includes shows on money, health, computers and cooking. Some weekend hours are paid brokered programming. KMBZ's sister station, KMBZ-FM, airs mostly local talk shows. KMBZ operates at 5,000 watts around the clock. It uses a non-directional antenna by day; at night, however, it broadcasts using a directional antenna to protect other stations on AM 980 from interference. On January 14, 2015, KMBZ was granted an FCC construction permit to move to the KCCV transmitter site and increase the daytime power to 9,000 watts. Its signal covers the Kansas City metropolitan area, including parts of Missouri and Kansas. (en)
