Chris Malone

Quite possibly the best voice you will hear all day, that’s because when you hear Chris Malone weekdays from 3pm to 7pm, your workday should be about done.  Chris keeps your favorite music going strong as you head down the home stretch.  Keep 98.5 KTK with you in the car, as hitting the rush hour adds stress; Chris keeps you cool with an hour of commercial-free music starting just before 5pm!

Nutrition Labels get Face Lift

First Lady Michelle Obama yesterday (February 27th) announced an overhaul of the nutrition label found on most packaged foods, the first major change in more than two decades. The changes, which have been in the works by the Food and Drug Administration for more than 10 years, are meant to make it easier for consumers to understand the labels and to make them reflect the latest scientific information. The changes include:
  • "Calories" appearing in a larger font and the number of calories even bigger and bolded.
  • Serving sizes updated to reflect the amounts that people actually eat. The number of servings per container will also appear larger and bolder.
  • New subcategory added under sugar for "added sugar" which doesn't occur naturally in the food.
  • Vitamins A and C will no longer be required to be listed, but vitamin D and potassium are being added because data show people aren't getting enough of them.
  • The daily value for sodium is slight decreasing, while the daily values for dietary fiber and vitamin D are increasing.
