(LOS ANGELES, Calif.) — NEWS: LA’s newest talk radio station, KBLA Talk 1580, is scheduling open on-air auditions for its 9 p.m. – 12 a.m. weekday host lineup. The station will discover and introduce to the Southern California talk radio market new voices yearning to be heard at this critical time.

“The all new “Unapologetically Progressive” KBLA Talk 1580 is conducting a citywide talent search for its late night talk show tandem,” said Lyle Gregory, veteran LA talk radio producer and executive in charge of the talent search.

“This historic moment is pleading with us to lift up a new generation of young, insightful voices to contribute to a vibrant and productive conversation. For too long now, talk radio in this city has been all day, all night, all white. We are building a conversational talk radio station that sounds like our city looks,” said Gregory.
