Where's Don Geronimo? Host Abruptly Off The Air At KHTK
October 7, 2013 at 4:16 AM (PT)
DON GERONIMO was abruptly gone from the lineup at CBS RADIO Sports KHTK-A (SPORTS 1140)/SACRAMENTO on FRIDAY (10/4), with JASON ROSS and DAVE "DEUCE" MASON airing in the noon-3p (PT) slot and saying on the air that their move is permanent. ALL ACCESS has reached out to cluster VP/Programming and KHTK PD BYRON KENNEDY for comment.
Meanwhile, GERONIMO tweeted a picture of a vintage PEPSI cap with the soda's name replaced by the words "Stay Cool" and replaced his FACEBOOK profile picture with a depiction of a phoenix rising. GERONIMO had yet to be removed from the KHTK website as of MONDAY (10/7),
GERONIMO returned to full-time hosting after a post-DON AND MIKE SHOW hiatus at KHTK in 2010, moved from middays (in which the old syndicated show had been a station fixture for several years) to mornings in JULY 2011, then moved back to middays in JULY.
ROSS and MASON, both station veterans, have been serving in update anchor and behind-the-scenes capacities; MASON recently added Executive Producer stripes for SACRAMENTO KINGS broadcasts. ROSS hosted middays when GERONIMO was hosting mornings.
