Longtime BROADCAST COMPANY OF THE AMERICAS Sports XEPRS-A (XX 1090)/SAN DIEGO morning co-host SCOTT KAPLAN has exited the station after 11 years and market veterans DAVE PALET and JEFF DOTSETH are taking over mornings at the station starting WEDNESDAY (2/6). KAPLAN's co-host, former CHARGER BILLY RAY SMITH, is "still considering future projects," according to a press release sent late MONDAY.
VP/GM TEX MEYER said, "We are making this significant change in our morning programming after very careful consideration and evaluation of several important factors. DAVE & JEFF have an established and highly successful tenure in this market and we look forward with great enthusiasm to their vibrant humor, sports knowledge and overall fresh approach to our supportive and highly loyal listeners."
PALET and DOTSETH have worked at several stations in the market, prominently at KFMB-A and KSCF (103.7 FREE FM). KAPLAN had encountered controversy last week with comments about the appearance of ANDREA LLOYD, an announcer on THE MTN., the cable college sports network.
