WKAT 1360 Now Home To Salem's
Salem Communications Corporation's newest station, News/Talk WKAT (1360) brings us many new syndicated conservative talk show hosts not previously heard in this market.
Included are Michael Medved, William Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Hugh Hewitt, Ernie Brown, and Dennis Prager. Plus Michael Savage and Laura Ingraham, who are already heard on WFTL (850) "Live 85".
It's a nostalgic return, since WKAT ("The KAT Never Sleeps") was a Miami Beach station featuring local talk in the 1960s and '70s, a generation before Rush Limbaugh popularized syndicated talk. There's where I first heard talkmaster (WKAT terminology, not mine) Craig Worthing, probably almost 30 years ago! The fabled Jean Shepherd was on (from NY), too!
This page will help familiarize you with Salem's stable of new syndicated WKAT talkers and their books and movies.
And if you're interested in their books, please bookmark this page and come back to order here (in association with Amazon.com) Your order helps to support the South Florida Radio Pages and South Florida Radio History.
If you found this site looking for info about talk on WKAT, we invite you to visit the rest of the South Florida Radio Pages and South Florida Radio History, which are now being updated and moved. Included are articles by Greg Budell, Rick Shaw, Mike Sheridan, Bob Gordon, and Alan Diskin (with more to come) and articles about Neil Rogers, Steve Kane, Randi Rhodes, Jim Rossetti, Woody Tanger, Craig Worthing, Jerry Wichner, Rush Limbaugh, Craig Crossman, Jerry Blavat, Alvis Sherouse, and many more radio personalities past and present.

Best remembered as U.S. Secretary of Education in the Reagan administration, William J. Bennett embarrassed himself a few years ago with his gambling problem. Since Bennett is the author of a number of books about virtue, his critics were especially hard on him!
Bennett's Morning in America is heard on WKAT (1360) from 6 'til 9 AM, as of July 2006.
Medved writes about not only politics, but also movies! I first saw him reviewing movies on TV many years before I ever heard him substituting for Rush Limbaugh!
You may notice some books listed as "Harry Medved". Those are collaborations by both Harry Medved and Michael Medved.
Medved is heard on WKAT (1360) from 3 'til 6 PM, as of July 2006. If you're used to listening to Schnitt on WIOD (610), try Michael Medved for a welcome change.
Right Turns: Unconventional Lessons from a Controversial Life is Medved's most recent book, published in December 2004. Medved's books are linked below. If you're interested in getting them, please buy them from this page and you'll help support the South Florida Radio Pages.
Although Laura Ingraham (radio's less-well-known Laura) has been heard evenings in south Florida since WFTL's format and frequency change in 2004, WKAT now brings her to Miami from 9 AM 'til noon, as of July 2006.. If you watch Fox News Channel, you may have seen Laura Ingraham as a guest commentator there.
Ingraham's books are linked below. If you're interested in getting them, please buy them from this page and you'll help support the South Florida Radio Pages.

The controversial Michael Savage is heard evenings from 7 'til 9 PM on WKAT (1360), as of July 2006. Or you can listen to three hours from 6 'til 9 PM on WFTL (850),
