Longtime KGO morning anchor Ed Baxter is retiring after 35 years at the station, and Jon Bristow has been named as his replacement. Bristow will team up with current co-anchor Jennifer Jones Lee for the weekday 5-9 shift.
Baxter has spent the last 11 years as co-anchor of the morning news. “The schedule of early morning hours has taken a toll and I’m looking forward to sleeping in,” Baxter said in a statement from the station.
“We’re looking forward to the fresh new sound of the KGO Morning News with Jon and Jennifer,” said General Manager Deidra Lieberman said in the same statement. “Jon is known and loved by the KGO audience, and I know he’ll be an outstanding fit.” Bristow has been with the station as a reporter/anchor for more than 20 years.
In a related note, former KPIX reporter Jeffrey Schaub has joined KGO-AM. His title is reporter/anchor. He was a 19-year veteran of KPIX.
