KIRO news radio has increased it's reach by simulcasting on the FM band. Long the voice of news, talk, and sports in the region, KIRO is arguably Seattle's most successful radio station. That point was driven home in 2004, when morning host Dave Ross ran as a Democrat for Congress. KIRO has traditionally broadcast at 710 on the AM dial. It will continue that spot and will also be heard at 97.3 on FM. Oldies station KBSG, which was KIRO's sister station, is no longer in existence.
