Radio columnist Brad Kava says the candidates vying to replace disgraced liberal talk show host Bernie Ward at top-rated KGO 810 include: Brian Copeland, Christine Craft, David Lazarus and Charles “Karel” Bouley. Kava, in a piece for the SF Weekly, says:
- Rumors are circulating that operations manager Jack Swanson, who gave the world the colorful blight of Michael Savage, favors Karel’s outlandishness. Executive programmer Trish Robbins allegedly favors Craft, while station manager Mickey Luckoff supposedly likes Lazarus.
Swanson tells Kava that there might also be a benefit to not naming a host and letting all the candidates work the shift, which will bring added diversity and make them work harder to compete.
