Veteran broadcaster Gil Gross, one of the hosts KGO-AM sacked last November, will become the permanent 4-7 p.m. host at Clear Channel’s KKSF NewsTalk 910, the station announced today.
Also, former KGO late-night host John Rothmann has been hired as 910’s political analyst. He will contribute to the station’s newscasts and talk shows. He will also host 910’s election night coverage.
Gross was one of a group of former KGO hosts has been substituting for Gene Burns in the 4-7 p.m. time slot since January. Burns, a month after he was fired by KGO, was hired by 910 AM, but suffered a stroke before he was able to start his new job. So Gross, Rosie Allen, Ed Baxter, Rothmann and Bill Wattenburg rotated the afternoon shift.
Baxter has been hired by KKSF to do a feature called “Making Sense,” which will air every day.
Gross will follow former KGO legal guru Len Tillem, whose advice show airs from 3-4 p.m. on 910.
