JV Inks Renewal At KYLD (WiLD 94.9)/San Francisco, Adds Talk Show On KKSF-A (Talk 910)

IHEARTMEDIA has inked JEFF "JV" VANDERGRIFT to a new multi-year contract as Top 40 KYLD (WiLD 94.9)/SAN FRANCISCO morning host, and under the new deal, he'll add a second show on sister Talk KKSF-A (TALK 910), resurrecting "THE DOG HOUSE WITH JV AND ELVIS," with sidekick DAN "ELVIS" LAY.
The addition of "THE DOG HOUSE" to the TALK 910 lineup on OCTOBER 19th means a shuffle of that station's lineup, with GIL GROSS moving from afternoons 3-6p to middays 10a-2p, filling the slot left open by the exit of ED BAXTER from hosting duties earlier this year; SPENCER HUGHES has been filling in. CORY CALLEWAERT and JOEL RIDDELL move up an hour to 2-4p, and "THE DOG HOUSE" takes the 4-6p slot, with morning hosts ARMSTRONG AND GETTY's "BEYOND THE BROADCAST" 6-7p. VANDERGRIFT is also distributing content from his production company on "THE DOG HOUSE CHANNEL" on iHEARTRADIO.
"JV is one of the BAY’s best and consistently top-rated personalities. We’re thrilled to have him extend his tenure on WiLD 94.9, along with fulfilling his passion for Talk radio with a new show on TALK 910, teamed with previous long-time partner ELVIS," said cluster SVP/Programming DON PARKER. "He will not only continue entertaining the WiLD audience, but he and ELVIS are part of a new and exciting generation of Talk radio."
"There are only a handful of talented people driven enough to find success on multiple broadcast and digital platforms, and JV is one of those rarities," said iHEARTMEDIA EVP/Operations- Major Markets HARTLEY ADKINS. "We are very excited to be able to partner with him for many more years."
"This is a great partnership for JV and iHEARTMEDIA. His on-air persona and ability to connect with our listeners has truly made him a recognizable brand in the SAN FRANCISCO market. JV will certainly continue to build upon his growing success," said iHEARTMEDIA EVP/GM of National Programming Platforms BRAD HARDIN.
"I get to work with the best people in the business at iHEARTMEDIA every day," said JV. "I’ve never felt better about my future."
