SEATTLE, WA - The All-New 97.3 KIRO FMWeekend is a radically new line-up of shows each Saturday and Sunday, enabling listeners the chance to "Learn. Laugh. Relax." 23 hours of new and different programming each weekend highlight the week's most intriguing stories, featuring familiar and fresh voices to help make 97.3 KIRO FM a weekend listening destination in Seattle.

New shows each weekend include an hour with Seattle's Morning News host Bill Radke, exploring the week's news from every angle, giving it the full "Bill Radke Treatment."

Terry Jaymes, co-host of The Lex and Terry Radio Network, takes self-help to the extreme: it's edgy, it's funny and it's real. Terry James Alive offers solutions to life's toughest problems - from inspiring a better "you" to dealing with an in-law that won't leave your house.

Seattle's Morning News anchor Linda Thomas, known as The News Chick by her legions of online fans, brings to life her social network persona to investigate the stories behind the 140 characters -- in a way only a seasoned journalist can.

97.3 KIRO FM Weekend listeners can also get their ‘geek on' with digital gurus Todd Bishop and John Cook on Geekwire; embrace the quirky side of news with Rachel Belle's Ring My Belle; eavesdrop on TBTL with Luke Burbank; and catch the best moments of Ron and Don's Top 5 @ Five.
