COMPASS BROADCASTING Triple A KPRI/SAN DIEGO has announced that market programming veteran BRYAN SCHOCK is joining the station as MD and afternoon-drive host. SCHOCK replaces CHRIS CANTORE on the air, who departed KPRI for a management position at the SAN DIEGO UNION TRIBUNE.
KPRI PD HALEY JONES said, "It's a rare day you get to hire your husband! Of course, it helps that BRYAN is actually the best candidate for the job. He's a SAN DIEGO native, he's great on the air and he'll put up with me!"
SCHOCK commented, "It’s been very difficult for me to live with HALEY, listen to the magical things she has been doing at KPRI, and not want to be part of it. Her vision for KPRI is clear and strong. It’s what radio should be today. I am fired up and ready to play a part in making it happen in my home town."
SCHOCK departs Classic Rocker KGB, where he was co-host of the morning show and served as APD. He programmed iconic 91X in the 1980s as well as KGB, where he was at twice in his career.
