KFOG Revamps Morning Show Again
June 13, 2012 at 10:40 AM (PT)
Morning host TONY LONGO is out from CUMULUS Triple A KFOG/SAN FRANCISCO due to negative feedback from listeners. The new lineup with TONY LONGO, MELANIE WALKER and GREG GORY had only launched on MAY 29th. (NET NEWS 5/15)
TIM JEFFREYS succeeds him with co-hosts GORY and WALKER as of TODAY (6/13)
"The goal was to build a new show to carry KFOG forward -- something unique," PD DENNIS CONSTANTINE told ALL ACCESS. "It quickly became obvious that the show wasn't working or clicking for Fogheads. KFOG is about taking risks, and the downside of that is that sometimes it doesn't work out.
"But now we're very excited to have TIM JEFFREYS as part of the KFOG team," he continued. "TIM is a 22-year BAY AREA radio icon, most recently at KUFX, KSAN and KSJO. Funny coincidence, I hired TIM in 1980 at KBCO as a deejay when he graduated from college. When he left KBCO, he went to STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO and programmed KFMU in 1988-89."
LONGO is returning to his morning show at WXZZ (Z-ROCK)/LEXINGTON, KY.
