SACRAMENTO market veteran PHIL COWAN is joining SALEM Talk KTKZ-A/SACRAMENTO for 7-9a (PT) weekdays, starting AUGUST 27th. COWAN was half of the PAUL AND PHIL team with PAUL ROBINS on crosstown CLEAR CHANNEL AC KGBY (Y92.5, now Talk KFBK-F) for 18 years and later hosted solo on CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KSTE-A before moving to his own production business.
“Recently, I have dabbled in advertising and video production, but the itch to sit down behind a daily microphone has returned," said COWAN.
“We are excited to add a SACRAMENTO radio market legend to the KTKZ programming line-up,” said GM DALE HENDRY.
"The addition of PHIL COWAN to the KTKZ lineup gives our station an even stronger chance to compete in the state capital of the nation's largest state," said SALEM VP/Director of Spoken Word Format PHIL BOYCE. "As we enter the presidential election cycle, KTKZ will be all over the issues, and PHIL COWAN gives SACRAMENTO listeners a chance to call in and join the discussion every morning."
The station is also adding back the first hour of MICHAEL MEDVED's SALEM RADIO NETWORK show; MEDVED's full show will now be heard noon-3p live on KTKZ.
