On July 6, KJRB will start reporting directly, on the hour at 6 a.m., 7 a.m, 8 a.m., noon, 4 p.m., 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. using its own staff and news feeds provided by the newspaper's website, spokesman.com. The new arrangement modifies the news-production terms of a two-year agreement whose general provisions extends through March 2010.

The announcement of the changes was made jointly by Ron Hren, market Manager of RadioSpokane, and Shaun O'L. Higgins, Director of Sales and Marketing for The Spokesman-Review.
