After his exit from BUCKLEY Talk KNZR-A/BAKERSFIELD (NET NEWS 2/22), RALPH BAILEY is moving across town to AMERICAN GENERAL MEDIA Talk KERN-A for 3-6p, starting MARCH 4th.
ABC affiliate KERO-TV reports that BAILEY wrote on his FACEBOOK page FRIDAY, "It is official!!! I signed a contract today to join AMERICAN GENERAL MEDIA. I'll be SCOTT COX's guest today at three and begin my own 3-6p drivetime show on MONDAY, MARCH 4th. I could not be happier! I have security in a business that is not that secure and for the first time in my life I'm making a little scratch! I'd like to thank ROGERS BRANDON and TONI SNYDER. It is great to feel wanted and appreciated. Finally, I hope many of you will come with me on this new and exciting adventure. My dear, sainted, widowed mother and Rep. KEVIN MCCARTHY will be my first guests on the NEW RALPH BAILEY Show on KERN 1180!!! Ain't life grand!"
COX is moving to 7-10a, with the show, "FIRST LOOK WITH SCOTT COX," to be produced along with the BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN and to stream on the paper's BAKERSFIELD.COM from its newsroom. COX's new show replaces TALK RADIO NETWORK's LAURA INGRAHAM in the KERN lineup.
