First, President and GM Mickey Luckoff tells the Press Club that there are no plans at this time for KGO to add an FM signal like KCBS did earlier this year.
Second, Luckoff said on Ronn Owens’ show the other day that the station will name a permanent 10 p.m.-to-1 a.m. host “very soon.” Guest hosts who presumably are contenders for the job are (in alphabetical order):
- • Brian Copeland
• Christine Craft
• Jim Gabbert
• David Lazarus
• Pat Thurston
• John Rothmann
Luckoff didn’t say who he favored, but told a caller complimenting Pat Thurston, “I think you’ll be hearing more from her on KGO radio.” The 10-1 slot opened up when Bernie Ward was arrested in December 2007 for child pornography.
Third, Luckoff also said that he’s interested in Renel Brooks-Moon, who recently left KISS 98.1. “I’m a great admirer of Renel’s, I think she’s a terrific talent and we are actually looking into where she wants to be next.”
