Here are a few things going on in local radio and TV that happened too late to make my Thursday TV Beat column.
- News news: KFSN (Channel 30.1) will begin producing a 30-minute newscast to air at 10 p.m. weeknights on KAIL (Channel 7.1). The program, scheduled to start Jan. 7, will be anchored by Warren Armstrong and Liz Harrison and will feature meteorologist Kevin Musso and sports director Tommy Tran.
- Tuna for breakfast: Local radio station KYNO (AM 1430) has been playing on music and commercials since the switch to the classic rock format in mid-November. The station will finally get an on-air voice as Charlie Tuna will be hosting a new morning show starting Dec. 17. The veteran on-air personality won’t be in Fresno but will supply the morning talk from his base in Los Angeles.
- Sound effort: The 5 p.m. Dec. 7 broadcast of the KFCF (FM, 88.1) show “Down on the Farm” explores some way forward for sustainable animal husbandry on a landscape changed by soaring grain prices.
