The Longview News Journal — The Tyler-based radio station 99.3 TalkFM, which broadcasts using an all-talk news and sports format, suddenly stopped broadcasting Friday afternoon.
A message on the station’s website said it is being redesigned.
Bryan Houston, whose Sports Radio Live show aired daily, said Friday was the last day at the station for him and other employees.
No one could be reached via telephone at the station Friday afternoon for comment.
The message on the station’s website said: “We are currently redesigning the 99.3 TALK FM website and expect to have it ready to go very soon. We apologize that much of the site will be unavailable during the transition and appreciate your patience.”
The station has provided a mix of local and syndicated talk, including Mark Levin, Dennis Miller and Neal Boortz. In addition to Houston, local talkers included Terry Miller and Tim Brando.
