COX MEDIA GROUP News-Talk KRMG-A-F/TULSA is promoting from within to fill the gap left by JOE KELLEY's move from mornings at KRMG to mornings at sister Talk WDBO-F/ORLANDO, upping "KRMG AFTERNOON NEWS" host DAN POTTER to host the "KRMG MORNING NEWS" starting NOVEMBER 19th. POTTER, a longtime morning anchor at WBAP-A/DALLAS before moving to TULSA in 2008, served as KRMG's News Director and morning co-host with KELLEY in 2008-10 before leaving to return to TEXAS for personal reasons, but later returned to host afternoons. POTTER also hosts "OKFOODIE," a weekend food and wine show which he launched during his brief weekday absence from KRMG.
PD LEVI MAY said, “We are very excited about the opportunity to promote from within, and DAN POTTER brings his outstanding talent to mornings, and will further grow our listening audience.”
“Under JOE KELLEY’s leadership, the KRMG MORNING NEWS has become the single most important morning show in OKLAHOMA, both in terms of content and listenership,” said POTTER. “I hope to continue the growth JOE started and to attract new listeners to the show. I am humbled, honored and very excited for this opportunity. I anchored newscasts on a similar morning show in DALLAS-FORT WORTH for over 15 years and am constantly impressed by KRMG’s commitment to covering breaking news better than anyone. You could take this newsroom and this product and put it in any major market in the country and be competitive.”
