July 19, 2016 at 6:28 AM (PT)
CUMULUS Sports KTCT-A (KNBR 1050)/SAN FRANCISCO is launching a new local morning show, "THE AUDIBLE," with former major leaguer KEVIN FRANDSEN, former CBS RADIO Sports KHTK-A/SACRAMENTO, ENTERCOM Sports KGMZ (95.7 THE GAME)/SAN FRANCISCO, and DON GERONIMO SHOW Podcast personality DREW HOFFAR, and comedian and former KGMZ host RUDY ORTIZ. The show will debut AUGUST 8th and will air weekdays 6-9a (PT), replacing CBS SPORTS RADIO's TIKI BARBER and BRANDON TIERNEY in the 1050 AM lineup.
“KNBR 1050 AM’s revamped lineup focuses on an underserved base of sports fans here in the BAY AREA. FRANDSEN, HOFFAR and ORTIZ are a trio of refreshing and energetic voices aimed at serving a passionate young BAY AREA fan base. The three hosts come from very different backgrounds and their unique personalities are a perfect blend of what the new KNBR 1050AM will represent going forward,” said PD JEREMIAH CROWE. “BAY AREA sports fans will find unmatched opinion, insight and humor each morning when they tune in from 6a-9a.”
FRANDSEN, who played for the GIANTS (in two stints), ANGELS, PHILLIES, and NATIONALS and has been filling in at KNBR, said, “I’m looking forward to this opportunity that combines my love for BAY AREA sports talk and ability to draw from my MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL playing experience. I cannot wait to get behind the microphone and AUGUST 8th can’t come soon enough!”
HOFFAR said, “This is an incredible opportunity and I can’t wait to get back on the air in the BAY AREA. I was raised on KNBR and look forward to adding to its legacy as ‘The Sports Leader!’”
ORTIZ said, “As a BAY AREA native, joining a brand within the KNBR family is truly an honor. I am looking forward to being a part of the CUMULUS SF family and I’m beyond excited to represent “The Sports Leader” every weekday 6a-9a.
KTCT has served as a mostly-syndicated second KNBR-branded frequency alongside the primary KNBR (at 680 AM). It has one other weekday local show, TED RAMEY's noon-3p program, plus a simulcast of 680's TOM TOLBERT and JOHN LUND afternoon drive time show, and otherwise airs ESPN RADIO programming and CBS SPORTS RADIO's JIM ROME.
