670 KBOI has expanded on to the FM dial.

The Cumulus owned and operated Boise brand, which features ‘Kasper and Chris’ in the morning, and Nate Shelman in the afternoon has begun offering its programming on 93.1 FM in addition to 670 AM.

In a story on CBS2‘s website, Shelman explained how the FM addition will better serve local listeners.

“We have the ability to offer additional content without interrupting regular programming,” said Shelman. “Certain sporting events, live press conferences, election coverage etc. KBOI will be able to offer a broader base of content.”

By adding an FM signal to air its content, listeners will now be able to hear the station’s full lineup, as well as Boise State football. Men’s and women’s basketball games are expected to continue airing on 670 AM.

KBOI has been a dominant ratings winner in the market for decades, featuring a mix of news and right-leaning talk. Additional shosts heard on the station include Dan Bongino, Ben Shapiro, Mark Levin, and Michael Knowles. All are distributed nationally by Westwood One.

95.5 WSB afternoon host Eric Von Haessler makes no qualms about his political beliefs, and oftentimes lack of political beliefs. But there’s one area he just will not touch.

During The Von Haessler Doctrine Wednesday, the Atlanta-based host discussed why he has no interest in talking about “culture war” topics that permeate much of news/talk radio.

“Anybody who listens to this show on a daily basis will know that I don’t vote anymore. I don’t have any horse in this race. I just want you to do whatever you want to do,” Von Haessler said. “And I’ve done enough voting in my lifetime. I’ve done my part from 1984 to 2016. That’s enough.”

Eric Von Haessler continued by noting there are plenty of other topics available for both talk radio hosts and politicians to discuss that are infinitely more important than what dominates the discussion now.

“I haven’t heard anybody bring up the debt. $34 trillion…But on the cultural stuff, (snore noise). Sorry, I’m sorry. I know it means a lot to you, whatever side you’re on, but the cultural stuff for me (snore noise). Anybody want to talk about the debt? Because that’s what’s important.

“‘Climate change means there’ll be no future for our children!’ Okay. But have you looked at the $34 trillion debt? Because that thing we know is there and, and you’re just acting like it’s not. I don’t get involved in that sort of stuff anymore.”

The Daily Wire has built itself into a conservative media powerhouse, and the latest podcast rankings prove that.

According to metrics released from The Righting, six of the top 20 right-wing podcasts are produced and distributed by the conservative digital outlet founded by Ben Shapiro and Jeremy Boreing.

The Ben Shapiro Show featured the most subscribers during the first quarter of 2024. The show saw more than 13,000 new subscribers, raising the total number to 585,750. The Jordan Peterson Podcast, also from the company, saw 415,506 subscribers.

Other programs from the company — like The Matt Walsh Show (#10), The Michael Knowles Show (#14), Morning Wire (#16) and The Andrew Klavan Show (#17) — also finished in the top 20 spots. Candace Owens — who worked at The Daily Wire for the overwhelming majority of the first quarter before her high-profile exit from the outlet — finished 19th.

The Dan Bongino Show was the highest-ranking non-Daily Wire podcast, coming in third place with 119,335 subscribers. Others in the top 10 included podcasts hosted by Bill O’Reilly, Steven Crowder, Mark Levin, Dave Rubin, and Glenn Beck.
