BONNEVILLE INTERNATIONAL CORP. Classic Rock KSWD (100.3 THE SOUND)/LOS ANGELES adds iconic LOS ANGELES morning host MARK THOMPSON to do wakeups. It's THOMPSON's long-awaited return to radio after spending many years at crosstown Classic Rock KLOS as part of the "MARK & BRIAN SHOW." When THOMPSON starts in mornings this coming FEBRUARY, current morning host JOE BENSON will segue to middays, while current middayer ANDY CHANLEY will join the cast of "MARK IN THE MORNING," working with THOMPSON.
"For me to return to mornings on L.A.'s white-hot radio station, THE SOUND, is beyond exciting," THOMPSON said. "I want to thank PETER BURTON and DAVE BEASING for their unbridled passion in making this happen. To all my old and new listening friends in L.A.: You should brace yourself, my people, because there is an entertainment storm coming and an umbrella won't help you ... I will once again embrace my dear friends JOE BENSON, RITA WILDE and CYNTHIA FOX from my KLOS days."
"MARK's return is probably the biggest thing to happen to L.A. radio since his departure. There's been a huge void in local morning radio," VP/GM PETER BURTON said. Added PD DAVE BEASING, "THE SOUND will continue to be all about the music, and MARK will create a daily shared experience that Classic Rock fans won't want to miss."
