KHQ returns to radio!

Posted: Updated:

KHQ-Television and Radio Spokane are proud to announce a joint content sharing partnership that will bring KHQ Local Newscasts back to radio.

Beginning July 6th, KHQ Local News Today featuring Shelly Monahan, Dave Cotton, Sean Owsley, and George Maupin and KHQ Local News at Five featuring Dan Dan Kleckner and Stephanie Vigil will be simulcast every Monday through Friday on KJRB 790AM Radio.

Radio Spokane will also feature daily local news updates from the KHQ Local Newsroom on KJRB 790AM, KEYF, 101.1FM and Cat 93.7FM.

"KHQ broadcasted its signal on 87.7FM for years.  Unfortunately the switch to digital television forced KHQ off the radio. Our audience overwhelming responded, asking to get KHQ back on the radio dial.  We've been working since February to meet the needs of our viewers, and now we couldn't be happier to announce that Radio Spokane has helped us to make that happen," said KHQ's President and General Manager Patricia McRae.

"We are thrilled to partner with KHQ to offer the best local TV news on the radio," said Radio Spokane Operations Manager Mike Skot.  "Together, KHQ and Radio Spokane are committed to servicing our local community".

Radio Spokane operates KJRB 790AM, 93.7 The Cat, 101.1FM KEYF, 1510 KGA Sports Radio, 103.9 BOB FM, 105.7 The Peak, and AM 1050 The Key.

KHQ Television is a division of KHQ Incorporated, which operates television stations in Spokane, Tri-Cities, and Yakima, Washington.  KHQ Incorporated is owned and operated by Cowles Company, based in Spokane Washington.
