Bakersfield: The Doctor Is Out at KGET

Clear Channel's KGET-AM 970 is dropping longtime host Dr. Laura Schlessinger, and adding a daily talk show with retired Kern County firefighter, conservative Jack Duncan.

Duncan has hosted a Saturday talk show on KGET for a couple of months. The move is designed to bring more of a local presence to KGET, which also carries Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, plus six hours of local news blocks each day.

The market also boasts two other news/talk stations, KERN-1410 (which offers the very popular Michael Savage program "Savage Nation") and KEZR-1560 (with strong local host Ralph Bailey in afternoons).

Duncan's show premieres July 5; KGET will also segue to Fox News Radio for its hourly newscasts, beginning in August.
