Media blogger Rich Lieberman reports that comedian, commentator and radio host Brian Copeland has been picked by KGO ABC7 to host a weekday show at 3 p.m. Lieberman based his report on a reliable broadcast source, and he quotes Copeland as saying, “That’s an interesting rumor.” Copeland’s show would replace “View from the Bay,” but no date has been set for its start. A live audience is planned, according to Lieberman. Copeland was a regular for several years on “Mornings on 2,” he’s received great reviews for his stage show “Not a Genuine Black Man,” and he does a show on KGO-AM on Sundays from 9-11 a.m.
Update, July 29, 7 p.m.: The Chron followed Lieberman’s story and added that Copeland’s show will start Sept. 13. One touch from the old day, Copeland will do some of the commercials himself life. (The Chron didn’t credit Lieberman. Funny, isn’t it, how newspapers complain about bloggers stealing their stuff, but when newspapers do it …)
