The Tim Conway Jr. Show is a weeknight talk radio program, currently web streaming and broadcasting throughout the Los Angeles County and Orange County, California metropolitan areas at KFI AM 640. The show runs from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Pacific Time and is hosted by Tim Conway, Jr.

Conway rose to popularity as a longtime host on former FM talk station KLSX, first teamed with Doug Steckler who was followed as co-host by Brian Whitman. After the 2008 departure of Whitman, Conway hosted solo rather than adopting a new co-host. On February 19, 2009, both Whitman and Steckler were special guests on Conway's last show before KLSX flipped the format to Top-40.

Show host[edit]

Tim Conway, Jr. is the son of American television and film comedian Tim Conway. Tim Conway, Jr. resides in Burbank, California with his wife and daughter.[citation needed]

KFI[edit]

Conway's weeknight show at KFI began on Monday, January 18, 2010, after Bryan Suits, who previously hosted the show at that time slot, decided to move back to Seattle. In line with the majority of KFI's programming, Conway discusses political topics, leaning more toward the right. Through July 17, 2015, on Friday nights, Conway was joined by comedian/writer Doug Steckler, his former co-host on KLSX.[1] On Tuesday nights Conway is joined by Mark Thompson. Conway often jokes about his costly love of gambling, especially his (usually) losing bets on the horses.

Thursday nights from 8-9pm are reserved for Conway's game show, What the Hell Did Jesse Jackson Say?, in which the host plays mostly unintelligible sound bites of Jesse Jackson and listeners call in to guess what Jackson is saying.[citation needed]

Other Programs[edit]

Conway also co-hosts a weekly computer and technology show, Make It Work, with Jeremy Anticouni which airs every Saturday at 3PM on KSFO Hot Talk AM 560 in San Francisco with Make It Work co-founder Jeremy Anticouni. Prior to accepting his current gig on KFI, Conway also co-hosted Tech News, powered by Make It Work which airs every Saturday at 1PM on KNX 1070. In addition, Conway hosts Mortgage Matters (with Dave Hardin of Covenant Mortgage) about real estate finance on KFWB and KFMB.
