KFWB ASSET TRUST Sports KFWB-A (THE BEAST 980)/LOS ANGELES fills the open afternoon slot in its schedule by moving midday host and NBC O&O KNBC-TV sports anchor FRED ROGGIN to 3-6p (PT) weekdays beginning MONDAY (10/19). Previous co-host BRETT WINTERBLE exited to join MIDWEST TELEVISION/SDLOCAL News-Talk KFMB-A/SAN DIEGO for afternoons in SEPTEMBER; his "THE DRIVE" co-host GEORGE WRIGHSTER also exited and is appearing as a studio commentator for FS1.
“After eating lunch and spending the day at work with our listeners, we thought it would be fun to drive home with them,” said ROGGIN. “For the record, we fit into all cars.”
“The new time slot allows FRED to reach a wider local sports audience with more people in their cars for the afternoon commute,” said PD TOM LEE. “With the addition of '(BILL) PLASCHKE & (JEANNE) ZELASKO' L.A. sports fans will now be able to spend both their morning and afternoon commutes with iconic LOS ANGELES sports insiders.”
