Yes, KTTH is the remaining right-wing talk station.
Actually, KVI’s death spiral began six years ago when Entercom snagged Limbaugh for KTTH – it was their “$@ck you” for Fisher having outbid ETM for the Mariners rights. Shortly thereafter Paul Duckworth was blown out and inept programming since then has basically made the station a non-factor.
As for the new format – it’s not PPM driven – it’s cost cutting. Everyone but Christopher and Hansen are already on the Fisher payroll so it’s just more work for no more pay – and you can bet the new hires won’t be making a lot of coin (or will be voicetracked).
Plus Fisher doesn’t have to give away inventory to a syndicator any more.
