Report: Geraldo Coming To KABC ... On Jan. 30th

Despite getting a bit burned after reporting that GERALDO RIVERA will be heard on CUMULUS Talk KABC-A/LOS ANGELES's new talk lineup (NET NEWS, 12/16), only to have KABC unveil a lineup without RIVERA (NET NEWS, 12/22), the OC REGISTER'S GARY LYCAN reports that he may have found evidence that RIVERA will indeed get his show on KABC -- at the end of the month.
LYCAN reports that DON IMUS announced in the first hour of his program on DEC. 13th that GERALDO was the new 10a-noon personality for WABC/NEW YORK and KABC. Of course, that was not to be, judging by KABC's announcement of its new schedule on DEC. 22nd. But LYCAN now reports that JOHN PHILLIPS, who's current doing 9a-noon on KABC, e-mailed, without naming names, that "I'll be on from 9a-noon JAN. 3-27th, 9-10a from JAN. 30th on, and pinch-hitting for other KABC hosts whenever they get a raging case of the gout."
Obviously, we'll all have to stay tuned to find out if this comes to fruition...
